Watch & Listen
Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesizers, Jeremy Malvin creates music under the name Chrome Sparks. Jeremy grew up in Pittsburgh, then went to music school at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Two years later, he left school and went on extensive tours as the drummer for Stepdad, Miniature Tigers, and Rich Aucoin. Jeremy currently resides in Brooklyn, where he spends his time working on music in his bedroom, often leaving it to play DJ sets. Although Jeremy works on the recordings alone and has not done many live performances, the Chrome Sparks live realization has had many different incarnations, ranging from a one man show to an eight piece band. Currently, Jeremy does live performances with two dear friends.
Equal parts sound art and pop music, Solar Year emerged from the same creative community as Grimes, D'Eon and Tonstartssbandht--somewhere among gallery installations and late night loft parties. They use electronics and live resampling, creating otherworldly soundscapes-- hazy atmospheres that float between Nordic electro-pop, serene New Age reverie, and the liturgy of medieval monks.
