Catastrophe Complex (2013)

11 tracks by VIVIAN CIRCLE

The Catastrophe Complex is to be the point where everything will merge or be completely destroyed... "To be modern is to experience personal and social life as a maelstrom, to find one's world and oneself in perpetual disintegration and renewal, trouble and anguish, ambiguity and contradiction: to be part of a universe in which all that is solid melts into air. To be a modernist is to make oneself somehow at home in the maelstrom, to make its rhythms one’s own, to move within its currents in search of the forms of reality, of beauty, of freedom, of justice, that its fervid and perilous flow allows.(All That Is Solid Melts Into Air, The Experience of Modernity, verso ninth edition Pages 345-346) This album is dedicated to the false memory of you D.G. Good Riddance.

SILVER (2011)

12 tracks by VIVIAN CIRCLE

Silver lacks the conviction of one color, a field of graying white tones that bleed back to the viewer the illusion of reflection, a mirage of depth and color where neither exits. A grittier sound with an ear towards the shifting political climate that seems to be consuming not only the rest of the world but this safe haven we have called home, america the once mighty is struggling with growing pains and the sins of the father. This record was written and recorded over a 5 month period in the bands Pyramid Lounge Studio, high in the Santa Cruz Mnts. overlooking San Mateo and the beautiful city by the bay. SILVER is the bands 15th album. VIVIAN CIRCLE is C.Thomas
