1992. A songwriting alliance between producer/guitarist Vora Vor and vocalist/lyricist Sebastian Elliott leads to the formation of Braindance, a New York City project manufacturing a new genre of music - Progressive Darkwave. Combining the elements of goth, industrial, electronic, synthpop and darkwave with progressive metal, progressive trance, vocal house, and modern classical music, Braindance quickly becomes one of the most distinctive voices in the underground.
1994. Braindance releases the mini-EP Shadows, featuring bassist Eiki Matsumoto and percussionist Rob Notorious, and subsequently begins performing in venues in and around the New York City area.
1996. Joined by keyboardist/backing vocalist Robynne Naylor, the band releases their first full-length album, Fear Itself. Considered by many to be ‘a new rung on the evolutionary ladder of modern music,’ Fear Itself features eye-catching comic illustrations that would become a Braindance trademark.
1998. Following three years of performances throughout the Northeast, parting ways with drummer Notorious, and replacing bassist Eiki Matsumoto with Chicago native Andy Bunk, the band begins the process of creating their long-awaited follow up to Fear Itself, Redemption.
2001. Bringing the vision of Braindance to a staggering new level, representatives from the progressive, industrial, darkwave, gothic, and metal communities hail Redemption as ‘a marvel of musical innovation, songwriting intellect, and unprecedented vision.’ Through the overwhelming support of independent press, radio, and fans worldwide, the release becomes an underground success story.
2003. Braindance enlists new musicians for live shows over the next three years. Julliard graduate Beka fills the keyboardist/backing vocalist position, drummer Jonah David of the Matisyahu band contributes his versatility, and bassist David Z from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra completes the lineup.
2006. Production begins for Master of Disguise, the new Braindance album destined to take the world by storm…
…The future is upon us - and it's oh, so tasty…
