Prepare to embark on a journey filled with dystopian electronic beats, retro-futuristic escapism, cyberpunk solitude, and synthwave nostalgia for a future that will never come. Comma Period's music resides in a liminal space—an uncertain transition between where you've been and where you're heading, both physically and emotionally. It might be haunting for some, but for others, it's a comforting refuge.
Comma Period, also known as Viviane Morrison, once a bassist and a radio host for an indie show in Paris, now captivates listeners with hypnotic arpeggiators and haunting pads. His track "A Safe Liminal Space" mesmerizes with an endless rhythm, luring listeners to the brink of uncertainty, a realm for those who feel out of place. It's a sonic experience that beckons the daring to embrace the unknown.
The moniker "Comma Period" was born from a deeply personal place—the second time the artist found himself in an artificial coma. Emerging from that transformative experience, he went on to remix two tracks for the multi-talented French musician, Colleen, on her EP "Solar/Stellar" (released on Second Language). One of these remixes was also featured in a mesmerizing visual artwork by the talented Sougwen Chung. This artist's journey is one of metamorphosis, reinvention, and the pursuit of sonic enchantment.
Comma Period draws inspiration from a vast tapestry of electronic music, paying homage to the pioneers from Germany, Britain, and Belgium, while embracing the contemporary wave of synthwave and darkwave artists. Their artistic universe extends beyond music, finding influence in the worlds of video games like "Cyberpunk 2077", anime from the visionary Makoto Shinkai, television series like "Station 11", and films such as "Tron". Lofi culture also plays a part, weaving another layer into the fabric of their sonic creations.
As autumn unfolds, Comma Period will unveil three new tracks, forming an EP that promises to be an ethereal listening experience. These compositions will bridge the past and the future, a symphony of emotions and soundscapes that will linger in your heart and mind. And, the journey doesn't end there, as an even grander adventure awaits with an album slated for release in 2024.
With Comma Period's music, embrace the uncertainty and dive into the enigmatic world where dance and introspection meet. Let the melodies carry you through the realms of cyberpunk dreams, and find solace in the melancholic harmonies that resonate with the deepest corners of your soul. Keep an ear to the ground and prepare for a musical revelation as this talented artist continues to carve their path in the ever-evolving soundscape of tomorrow.
So, dear music lovers, are you ready to immerse yourselves in Comma Period's "dance music for people who don't dance" (as he likes to say)? Get ready to dance in your heart and soul as you sway to the beats of a future that will never be but remains eternal in its essence.
