Panabrite at Ssg special

The solo outfit of Seattle-based composer and graphic artist Norm Chambers. Inspired by science fiction, retro futuristic and conceptual architecture, kosmische and new age, obscure electronic library productions and odd soundtracks, with a big love for vintage technology and analog synthesizers. Studied graphic design as well as fine arts. Panabrite (Seattle keyboardist Norm Chambers) works in the hazy, analog-synth-laden zone between kosmische drift and new age waft. Such artists tread a fine line between sublimity and schmaltz, but Panabrite confidently steers his armada of tones to the former state.
