Artifiseer

Electronic, Indie, Pop

Artifiseer is the solo project of Canadian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer, Ian Livingstone, currently based in Saint John. By combining twisted, noisy atmospherics, effervescent synth lines, and bizarre orchestration with effected percussion and layers of his brooding, agile vocals, Artifiseer offers a unique blend of experimentation and pop sensibility. The project took shape in late 2012, initially as a largely instrumental effort, eventually expanding to incorporate emotive, and often dark, yet abstract lyricism. 2013 saw the release of two EPs, "Recognition", and "Enigma", both of which garnered the attention and praise of several blogs and online publications, including Silent Shout and Grayowl Point. Summer 2015 saw the release of his debut full-length album, "Catalyst".
