Science NV biography
US act SCIENCE NV was formed in 2005 by Larry Davis, David Graves, Jim Henriques and Rich Kallet. Larry, David and Rich had since 2002 played together as The Aesthetic Condition. But then Jim, who had worked musically with Rich back in the 70's, decided to join the band. As all four members had a background from science one way or another, it was decided that Science NV would be an apt new moniker for this musical venture.

This San Francisco based quartet have two albums to their name so far: Really Loud Noises from 2008 and Pacific Circumstances from 2010.

3 stars This US band with the strange name, linked with the relation of all members with somekind of scientific field, comes from San Franscisco, California.Larry Davis (guitar, bass), David Graves (keyboards), Jim Henriques (guitar, keyboards) and Rich Kallet (drums) are the four pieces of Science NV, which debuted with the album ''Really Loud Noises'', an indepedent work from 2008.

Of course there are no really loud noises in this all instrumental release, I would call it more really sophisticated noises, and what impresses the listener but simultaneously hurts the album's consistency is the different sounding tracks of the album.''Devil in Witches' Hands'' is like listening to GUADALQUIVIR, great Latin-spiced Jazz/Fusion with excellent guitar work, while the ''Bolero'' adaption has both strong and weak parts.The opening cheesy synth parts are followed by nice spacey keyboards and symphonic grandieur.The show goes on with ''Rim'', like listening to a more complex and keyboard-based RUSH of the 80's, while ''Mountain Pass Blues'' is an attempt by the group to come up with a soft, jazzy sound, based more on atmosphere than technique.''Chacooonne'' is another different story in the line.A mix of KING CRIMSON-influenced Guitar Rock with Orchestral Music, producing fantastic soundscapes, really nice and original music.''Number Five'' reminds me of DAVID SANCIOUS softer moments, delicate and accesible Jazz/Fusion with the piano leading the way.''After Math'' is closer to modern Art Rock, a low groove texture with a nice electric solo supported by background keyboards and a hypnotic rhythm section, while ''Jalapeno Swamp Gas'' is a mix of Electronic Music and Fusion, based on spacey synths and a nice, jazzy guitar delivery.This works as an intro to ''Hard Break '', which is actually pure Electronic Music with a symphonic tendency, despite the short guitar presence.The closing and longest track of the album ''Violet Sky/Karnival'' is unfortunately boring Electronic/New Age Music of limited diversity and interest.

I am really surprised how these Americans came up with such an array of different musical weapons.Most of them are quite good, rising logical questions of their music education.Not very balanced work but certainly well-executed.Recommended overall.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
