The music that Hardedge creates explores the inner-workings of sound and synthesis, and is intended for the listener who can appreciate its bold sense of exploration, as well as the surreal beauty of the world it evokes. Dense musical soundscapes, unrestricted freedom of movement, vibrant sonic constructions rich in textural designs, with a structural foundation that's philosophically clear, is what Hardedge is expressing on his recordings and in performances.
Hardedge’s soundesign delves into the more intellectual elements of dark-flavored electronic music. His experimental approach to sound, space, and structure owes a lot to the fundamental principles set by a few of the Chicago's A.A.C.M. creative thinkers, especially their revolutionary multi-directional, non-progressive approach, and the use of the silence as a musical element. He creates psychedelic-like aural landscapes, made up of polyrhythms and random, transient frequencies. The music becomes a surrealistic construction of wild imagination, a stunning, delicate and uncompromising creation, rarely found in today’s art of sound.
