The Anachronist is a creature displaced in time. Almost nothing is left of his original form, as he exists in a constant state of mechanical reinvention. He observes his surroundings, and, through music, expresses them throughout time and space. By creating melodic sandboxes out of things he’s seen, the Anachronist’s goal is to capture the universe’s beauty sonically with a powerful, synthy flair.
If you’re like me, you probably have no idea what the f*ck any of that means. Even after listening to Anachronist’s upcoming release, For The Time Being, due out on February 26th, I still had a lot of questions. So, I asked him to do an interview with me!
You can find that interview below, and watch me ask Anachronist (also known as Ryan Shaw) about his upcoming release, a few of his musical inspirations, who his “dream collaborations” would be, and we finally get to the bottom of just exactly what “melodic sandboxes” means!
For The Time Being will be available on all major streaming services on Tuesday, February 26th! To stay updated on everything Anachronist has going on you can follow him on Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud, and find the rest of his discography on his Bandcamp page!
