Tyler Swan-Acoustic and Electronic Percussion

Foscil is a band that glides between electronic and acoustic music with grace and agility. Their arsenal of musical equipment spans generations. Vintage analog synths nestle between virtuosic live drumming and a vintage 1980's Atari ST midi sequencer. Their musical influences include everything - no record is left unturned. What it all adds up to is one of Seattle's most up-and-coming electro-acoustic groups. Operating under the banners of the Fourthcity and Def Sow crews, they are slowly but surely becoming a force to be reckoned with. But what is it that makes these old friends so adept at reconciling the differences between styles and easing their way into the happiest medium? Perhaps it is the brothers Swan's intense psychic connection (which I personally witnessed many times), or it could possibly be due to the simultaneous electrocution of all four band members during a performance in 1993. I caught up with Ryan Trudell last winter to get to the bottom of it. When I brought the subject up, he simply straightened his tie and in a calm but direct manner asked me to leave.
