Demon Hunter frontman Ryan Clark and Project 86 guitarist Randy Torres have formed an electronic project called NYVES, and recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for an album.
The Kickstarter campaign can be seen here.
According to a letter to the fans Clark wrote, the project has been in the works since 2013 when he reached out to Torres. They are hoping to create music similar to what bands such as Portishead, Nine Inch Nails, and Depeche Mode make.
"My songwriting has always been a bit archaic in process. I managed to find a way to plug my guitar into my computer about a decade ago, and my methods haven’t changed much since then. My knowledge of "recording for real" is limited to what I’ve seen over the shoulders of extremely talented producers and engineers over the past 20 years," he writes, "I can write it, I can (for the most part) play it, but I’m at the mercy of those whose talents lie in the big picture to make it sound incredible during the process. Randy, for instance, is one of those people."
After many years and a series of events that have brought the two together in a working capacity, Clark feels the time is right.
"Randy’s programming and production skills have reached levels that shock me. Not only is he creating the kind of material that is thrilling to write to, his knack for building beautiful soundscapes, attention to detail, and production talents ensure that this record will sound absolutely incredible."
Packages for their Kickstarter range from instant downloads all the way to a remix package of your own personal song with Randy Torres.
