Omegachild - Obsession

Omegachild - Obsession
Omegachild is the solo project of Brisbane based electronic producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Daniel Newstead.

Newstead fuses raw emotion of classical piano training with primal physicality of a band, playing live synths and drumming simultaneously. This led to the development of the Omegachild 'one-man-machine' live show. The show incorporates audio-activated projection and lighting to create a synesthetic music experience that not only challenges the limits of his own performance, but also explores the potential of technology to act as an extension of the human body.

In what begins as a stream-of-consciousness style that may borrow the instrumentation of heavy electronic music at the pace of industrial rock one day, the next will see Newstead’s muse tempting him into the introspection of ambient, classical cinematic textures, or the rhythm found by allowing the fingertips to translate the way kaleidoscope patterns rearrange themselves.

After years of working as a producer and touring as a live drummer in various bands, playing notable support slots for luminaries such as Pop Will Eat Itself, Combichrist, Cog, and Sleepmakeswaves, Newstead reigned his talent back home, drawing heavily from his experiences of life as a musician in the digital age, redirected his primary focus toward electronic composition.

About this track...

Obsession continues to probe our technological present, with an ear to its pulse and an eye to its horizons. So where in all this noise do we still find our humanity? With each spin of this infectious Obsession, one question above all else will keep playing on your mind, "Do you really love it?"
