“Sonic Bloom” Sells Out!
Article By: Christopher D. Caligaris
It has been a few days since I left Sonic Bloom and my mind is on fire fueled by its inspiration. This year the event up in Shadows Ranch, Georgetown, sold out hard! This will be my 3rd Sonic Bloom in its 7-year history. It always attracts an eclectic group of mountain bound music lovers from all over the world. What a line up this year. I was pleased to see so many awesome acts with over 80 Live DJ’s, Producers, and Bands. I started my ascent to Sonic Bloom from Boulder, traveling with my two close friends Kevin and Michael. We set up camp in surprisingly the same exact spot as last year, down by the river. The vibe this year set the stage for what was undoubtedly the best Sonic Bloom yet! It was a pleasure hanging with local Colorado Legends Jay Jaramillo (Project Aspect) and Ronnie Weberg (Unlimited Gravity). Project Aspect has recently released music on 1320 records and Ronnie has been working closely with ill-Esha on a new project called the “Intelepaths.” They just released their Collab EP Neon Arrows on Tuesday July 3rd. Tipper’s set is still fresh in my mind. I can’t believe the sounds he was dropping on the crowd Friday Night. The first set was a high-energy fusion of robotic and organic sounds that sent the crowd into a super-charged dance frenzy. Tipper dropped some of the cleanest drum and bass I have ever heard near the end of his set. He threw down a nasty array of tracks ranging from old to new, keeping his old songs fresh with remixed versions as well as dropping tracks from “Bubble Control.” Tipper’s second set on Saturday was on the chill side, bringing the crowd into a more ambient trance. The sound landscape was equalized to perfection. I truly stand in awe of the sound design and mastering. If that wasn’t enough, Tipper had an amazing lighting set up. Standing in front of a mind-warping structure that seemed to go into infinity. The projectors displayed intricate ever-changing patterns that sucked you into the performance. As I shook hands back stage with Tipper I expressed my appreciation in this regard.
I caught Bonobo Thursday night. His set was also out of this world and the crowd ate every second up. I had my light-up laser sword swinging in the air the whole time. Bonobo has a wicked understanding of the set as a whole and thinks long term in the mix. I love his attention to the crowd energy and that funny smile he gets when the music is pumping loud. Back stage I met Marty Party from South Africa and Ooah from the Glitch Mob. Together they represent “Pantyraid,” a notorious ‘glitch hop dance till you drop’ duo. I also had the chance to meet Michal Menert. His new tracks are a breath of fresh air, I love his use of old sample; he has worked closely with Derik Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights for years, pioneering that mid-tempo crunch. It was my good friend Greg Fisk’s birthday that weekend; this Colorado mountain man knows how to throw down a nasty glitch set.
So many familiar faces this year. The art that was on display at the festival was extremely immersive. You could actually lay inside one of the pieces, a low frequency surrounded you that seemed to put one in touch with the earth. The tetrahedron structure had seen over 200 festivals before, finally completed for the first time in its entirety at Sonic Bloom. Going from show to show, I ran into Jay (Project Aspect). Jay and his wonderful girlfriend were a pleasure to chill with back stage before he went out and straight-up slayed the eager crowd. The Mile High Sound Movement has been shaking the ground ever since its inception. You could see the movement getting larger with MHSM logos on shirts and hats all over the festival. The sounds heard are full of melodic bass lines and hard-hitting highfy crunk beats. I ran into other good friends and members of The Mile High Sound Movement: Jon Black (Cloud-D), Alan Steenblock (Parvata), and Ricky Shine (The Digital Connection). All of which are creating groundbreaking new music. It really is good to be in the Wild West raging in the mountains with such awesome people, I feel lucky to be in the scene, celebrating existence.
I also talked briefly with Avi Gallant of the Untz, we both were happy to be a part of the Sonic Bloom Press conference. It is an extreme pleasure working with Tsunami Publicity once again! Ami Heinrich and Rebecca Venkauskas are quite the duo, and the press conference was again, so enlightening. The Artists as a whole were eager to express themselves as questions were fired off. I asked the Intelepaths what they thought were key points to successful collaboration. They responded directly, touching on their similar backgrounds in music and expressing to always keep an open mind with mutual respect in the writing process. Many Artists touched on how progressive the scene is here in Colorado and the West in general. We share a lot of our production secrets with one another and collaborate collectively to perpetuate the scene. Colorado truly continues to be on the forefront of Bass music in America. Leaving the festival I was inspired beyond comprehension; the unified field we created was unforgettable. Sonic Bloom is truly an experience that will only get better. You don’t want to miss next year! See you at the shows! ;-)
Known far and wide for its variety of some of the world’s most renown DJs and up and coming acts alike, and this year SONIC BLOOM is putting an even heavier focus on the impact of our community and our surroundings. Upon achieving successful greening results last year, a 30% reduction of trash-waste, the event will be bringing back rockstar waste management company ZERO HERO. With a goal of eliminating waste, the group will be setting up recycling, compost, and trash stations throughout the festival grounds and will have volunteers on site to facilitate waste disposal awareness. All participants are encouraged to use all waste, recycling, and compost bins and to entertain a “leave no trace” mentality while on festival grounds. Please be responsible for your own area.
This year’s SONIC BLOOM will offer even more workshops and community learning events than previous years, featuring activities such as morning yoga, wilderness hikes, even discussions of unified field theory. A wide range of food vendors will provide your taste buds with tantalizing selections from around the world while local artists will showcase their craft, many, offering hands-on workshops to any and all who are interested. SONIC BLOOM will not only cater to your ears, but your entire body and soul, projecting a sense of peace and well-being across the site. Musicians, artists, visual performers, yogis, dancers, jugglers, vendors, and of course, die-hard music enthusiasts, will come together in celebration of life arts in all of its guises.
SONIC BLOOM has also announced an official two-day Pre-Party at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO on April 27th and 28th, 2012. Legendary visionary artists, Alex and Allison Grey, Martina Hoffmann and Johnathan Singer will be accompanied by Bluetech, Octopus Nebula, GRiZ, David Starfire, Janover, and many more!

You hear it at parties. You hear it at shows. You hear it walking down Pearl St. It is no secret that Boulder, CO is crazy about electronic music.
In recent years, Boulder and the surrounding area have become seemingly enamored with this style of musical production; Shows sell out quickly, and one is hard pressed to attend a party or gathering not including a live DJ or electronic musician.
CU Astrophysics Junior, Christopher Caligaris, 21, has come to develop a new genre of music he calls "Electrosong" It combines elements of electronically produced “womp” “womp” with acoustic and electric singer songwriting tactics.
Caligaris explains, “I'm trying to put the intimate back into the machine. Bring a little humanism to the synthesized music, while still creating a classic production”
Caligaris has been playing with electronic music since he was a young boy. He used to have a HotKeyz, TYCO brand Keytar—a keyboard/guitar hybrid—that he would press buttons on to fiddle around with the pre-recorded loops. These days Caligaris is focusing on his electronic hybrid project which he has named, “GODLAZER.”
GODLAZER is a comprehensive work combining elements of Christopher’s past with dreams of the future. Caligaris has been a musician for most of his life, although he first hit the stage with a modern dance performance at age 6, written and reviewed by the New York Times Magazine. Caligaris has been playing and singing guitar for 15 years now.
In the recent past, Christopher Caligaris has gone on tour around Colorado in a Nordic Death Metal band named "Tribes of Asher". Caligaris explains, “I loved the energy from the crowd. I thought to myself, how can I reproduce a similar type of energy in a different setting and actually create a sense of intimate connection among audience members at a show? Electronic music production has been the glove that fits for me to move energy in a room.”
When asked what drew him to electronic music, Caligaris said that it invokes a feeling to let go of what a person has experienced in one’s day.
“I feel like electronica relieves a lot of stress in people. I see so much happiness in people’s faces when they listen to electronica,” Caligaris remarked while sitting in his living room, which is full of turntables and several synthesizers and processors.
Caligaris believes that electronic music has a lot of potential, stating that, “If we can find a way to connect what we want in our head to come out of those speakers, then I think that is the ultimate goal of technology, to bridge the gap between your imagination and the physical world we live in.”
Thank you everyone who is and has been involved with this post apocolypitic omnitempo maximalist mayhem. Big thanks to my family and friends for being there when I needed you most.
