Introducing… Halosar

Interface sound design meets melodic drum machines.

Halosar is a collaboration between lifelong friends James Jano and Cullen Miller. They met as kids and went to the same University together. James is a touring drummer and composer whilst Cullen works with sound design and interactive art. Their music is instrumental and very quirky but I’d describe it as melodic percussion sound design. Their new single “Pretzel Summit” is a rhythmic and tuneful collection of synthetic bells, plinks, blips and metallic tones. It reminds me of Thailand or Indonesia. The sound is like a gamelan with a synth backdrop to it. I personally found the music to be utterly hypnotic and hopefully, there’s plenty of that to come in the future.

“Pretzel Summit” is the second single taken from Halosar’s forthcoming album “New Forge”. The album is due out Friday 18th March and is available to pre-order. Enjoy the excellent single below. Apparently, the two have a long-running chess rivalry. I wonder if that will make its way into future music of theirs!
