is a unique quantity in the world of modern electronic music. Hailing from the unlikely locale of Edmonton Alberta, the project originally emerged from mastermind Scott Fox's desire to explore both the heavy electronics he cut his teeth spinning in local industrial club nights, and his love of percussion from around the world. Now, joined by Jamie Blacker of ESA and Yann Faussurier of Iszoloscope, iVardensphere has become a full-fledged collaborative effort, anchored by a mutual love for deep sound design and crushing rhythms. That passion, combined with an ever-evolving and maturing production sensibility, have become the project's trademarks; over the course of five full length albums and innumerable remixes, iVardensphere has become one of the foremost live and studio acts in North American industrial.
For all of its grandeur, the iVardensphere sound has proven remarkably fluid. Monolithic analogue synth bangers share space with simmering groove-based instrumental experiments, tribal industrial drum workouts and deep, textured ambiences. For all of those elements, the whole is remarkable because it feels so singular. There's no mistaking the scope and gravity of an iVardensphere track when you hear it.
