Artist Spotlight: Proud Creature

Todd Brozman is a multi-instrumentalist and music producer with roots in piano. He started playing piano at age 6 after convincing his mother to buy him a little demo Casio at an electronics store. He has always had a natural improvisational approach and his musical background is inspired in part by his father’s multi-genre 60’s and 70’s record collection.

At Wesleyan University, Todd had a radio show which exposed him to a lot of new electronic music and he got more involved in creating new music, fusing electronics and improvisational jazz. After college, he moved to the Bay Area and spent the following years gigging around SF and the greater Bay Area as a jazz pianist. After moving to New York ten years ago, Todd shifted his focus towards music production. He produced and recorded with some great collaborators. This notably includes co-producing with singer and producer KYOSi and creating and releasing music as part of the electronic improvisational duo Moon Casual alongside electronic musician and CG artist Mike Dunkley.

Proud Creature is his solo musical project, presenting ethereal and otherworldly compositions informed by jazz, ambient, electronica and psychedelic music.

Todd says “This EP was produced entirely in my small studio where I recorded piano, synths, percussion, and various other instruments. Most of the instrumental parts were improvised which adds to the live and jazz-influenced sound of the music. I also incorporated a lot of field recordings and found sounds which give the music a certain spatial dimension and amplify the thematic tone of the album.”

However, this creation, the EP called Opening Creature is masterfully produced, with extraordinary sound and a wealth o tonal harmonies. As  Proud Creature, the creativity is truly organic and flows like life’s blood, with and energy that is infectious.

I personally enjoyed this album, it has the repose and finesse of works by the masters, Vangelis, Kitaro and the masterminds that took the Synth sound to the extreme.it has an ambience that is special, sound in the 4th dimension, it surrounds you and holds in it embrace.
