Hush Hush Records is thrilled to welcome Italian electronic musician Julian Zyklus to its roster to present his solo debut album 'Four Dimensional Waves.' A bold conceptual record based on the cyclic idea of a universe born through a white hole that moves and grows through four-dimensional waves before arriving at its final black hole, 'Four Dimensional Waves' is a mesmerizing cinematic journey. Over its 8 transportive tracks, Julian Zyklus takes the listener through a cerebral exploration of serene ambient passages, hypnotic neo-classical arrangements, and propulsive techno rhythms that masterfully capture the epic nature of its inspiration.
'Four Dimensional Waves' serves as Julian's first solo album following decades of studying piano and synthesizers. A student of engineering and electronic music, he's served as a member of the veteran Italian alternative rock band A Toys Orchestra since 2014, where he's enhanced the band's dynamic and theatrical sound as their primary piano and synth player. His solo work began to fully take shape in 2017 when he submitted a composition into a musical contest for National Geographic's "Genius" series and received inspiring feedback from the judges of the show, Genius composers Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe. Using their words of encouragement as a motivating factor to further explore solo material, he began work on 'Four Dimensional Waves' using prepared pianos, loops, synthesizers, and sampling to create his widescreen, melancholic, celestial songs.
