STARSAPIEN RELEASES DEBUT
ALBUM JANUARY 15, 2021
Jay Siebold’s 12-track album “Streams of Conscience” to be released on Siebold Sound
LOS ANGELES -- Starsapien, the recording collective helmed by Jay Siebold, will release their first full-length album “Streams of Conscience” on January 15, 2021.
Recorded over the span of 10 months, “Streams of Conscience” spins like a half-hour carousel ride in the mind of Siebold, whose style is eclectic and mystical.
“I sat down and wrote the album sequentially without really overthinking what it would be in the end,” Siebold says. “It’s classic Starsapien: a little moody, a little tongue-in-cheek, and a lot of nonsense.”
“Streams of Conscience” was recorded in secret by Siebold and his collaborators in various recording studios, living rooms, and hallways across America. The “Starsapien Players,” as he calls them, include (in alphabetical order):
Kevin Beardsley, Jakob Bower, Logan Butler, Donovan Cheatham, Lauren Harrold, Alreese Hooks, Dwayne Jordan, Drew Jostad, Zane MacFarlane, Zach Miller, Jesse Moorefield, David Siebold, Michael Stark, Caique Vidal, Collin Williams, and Matthew Winget as Boris Marsman.
The eleventh track, “Jeans,” is available for streaming now.
The album was entirely produced and mixed by
Jay Siebold from his home studio in Los Angeles,
CA. It was mastered by Pete Lyman at Infrasonic
Sound and features artwork by Italian designer
Under many names and faces, Siebold
has amassed a decade of music releases
as performer, producer and engineer. Prior
to “Streams of Conscience,” Jay released two
singles as Starsapien: “The Hungry Man” and
“Last Breath,” available on all platforms.
scoring • thematic music production
Selected music composed by Jay Siebold
for activist Charlie Morris' flagship waterways conservancy podcast, "SalmonFolk Radio."
The theme music was composed with the inspiration of the ancient, pulsing rhythms of
the annual salmon run, which defines the lifecycle of the species.
The music seeks to connect elements of
nature, acoustic percussive and stringed instruments, and pulsating beats borrowed
from modern electronic production.
