    Posted: November 05 2013 at 09:59
Hi,

I would like to submit by band Symphony Novel for submission to Prog Archives. We are a five piece progressive . post rock , experimental , instrumental band from Mumbai , India. I started this project in 2012. Our songs have a unique combination of stylistic Indian classical and western vocals.

The band logo is usually a stylized version of the band name itself. In other cases, as with Symphony Novel, a motif is included.This motif provides a distinct identity which compliments the simple but eloquent serif font. In keeping with the sound and lyrical content,the motif has an edgy yet mystical persona.It is designed from the mathematical symbol of infinity or rather half of the whole. As it is fashioned from the infinity symbol, the final form is that of a photograph capturing the ever evolving, mutating nature of events.



The current line up is:-

Gauri Aayeer - Vocals
Rachit Sachdeva - Guitars 
Vivek Khati - Guitars
Jerson Anthony - Bass
Virendra Kaith - Drums

We released our debut album "ARIA" digitally worldwide via CDbaby on the 5th September 2013. It is a six track album and we have left no stone unturned in creating a strong debut album.Smile.

Track list :-

1) - Chant                         05:33
2) - The Lake                   04:51
3) - Disorder                    04:01
4) - Infirmity                      03:32
5) - Tranquilize                04:10
6) - Smokin Sap              04:02

The entire album can be streamed at :-http://symphonynovel.bandcamp.com/

We received a stunning review from Mark Johnson from Sea of Tranquility - The Web Destination for Progressive Music , New York. Please take a look at it.


After a good response on the review we got an opportunity for a interview from Sea ofTranquility , New York .


We have released the official music video of the track " Chant " .

Thank You very much for your time. Please do help us with the appropriate sub - genre...!!

Cheers

( Founder :- Symphony Novel )

I just heard the album because the Symphonic tag.

I LOVED IT

But I believe it has Folk, Rock, Metal, etc etc

Would be a good candidate for Eclectic or Xover IMHO

Rejected for Heavy Prog (was suggested to us before this post) but if other teams are willing to evaluate again no problem.

More alternative heavy rock than prog in my opinion.

Is this a full album Rachit or an EP? I mean the length is 26 mins
"Prog-gnostics" show - every Saturday 8-10pm UK time on http://www.justincaseradio.com, the first progressive radio in Greece

SYMPHONY  NOVEL LOGO AND ALBUM ART - COURTESY - CYRIAC VARGHESE.


1) Symphony Novel Logo :- The logo for our band Symphony Novel is designed from the mathematical symbol of infinity or rather half of the whole. Initially it was was a complete infinity symbol but then was changed into this..!!..As it is fashioned from the infinity symbol the final form is that of a photograph capturing the ever evolving , mutating nature of events..!!




2) Album Art for our album " ARIA" :- The album art is made by my very good friend and an amazing sketching artist Cyriac Varghese..!!!.
 
Its a piece showing a man bowing down atop an alter of rock and is comprised of simple strokes placed closely together to create a sense of intricacy and tension to personify principles of surrender and grace..!!


Smile

Cheers.!!!

Symphonic said no, they are not Symphonic except by the name.

I believed Eclectic would say yes, but they have their own parameters which I fully respect.

I believe their only chance is Crossover.

You guys have been rejected by the eclectic team, maybe you'll be moved to a different team, I'm not sure yet.
I hope it won't take long.

Symphony Novel is all set to come up with a new single ETHEREAL ASH.

A short description on the theme...

"The life force, the pulse of our planet has been thumping from it's conception.Through the turmoil of natural floods,iceages,earthquakes,forestfires so on and so forth, we also stand to marvel at it's marvelous and tremendous beauty,but the way things are,the assault on the natural equilibrium..the pulse, might be no more."

The lyrics are done ..!!!..Drums , Bass , Heavy Rhythm Guitars , Clean Guitars , Indian Classical Vocals and also the Cello has been recorded. We have introduced the Cello for the first time in our song..!!!..Its going to be amazing.. !!!..Only the Western Vocals are left..!!..Then we will start with the mixing and mastering and music video..!!..

We would love to share the pictures taken during the recording sessions at Gino Banks Studio , Mumbai.

Also we have started a Crowd Funding campaign on www.wishberry.in . The budget for this single is a bit high and hence we decided to start the crowd funding campaign so that the people get involved with us on this journey..Its really amazing that we are getting great support from India and overseas. 

Do Check this Symphony Novel Wishberry Campaign Video and everyone who feels that what we are doing is really different and would like to contribute , please do and receive exciting rewards. Remember , this is not a donation..!!!... :- 


Wishberry Link for Contribution :- http://www.wishberry.in/campaign/symphony-novel/

Thank you very much

Regards

Rachit Sachdeva [ Symphony Novel ]
