Along the outliers of unexplored cerebral boundaries resides the sonic offerings of Grey Music member (Grey) and Harmonious Discord label front-man Sean Anderson aka PointBender. A project focused on thought bending synthetic manipulations and heady melody construction, the PointBender moniker provided Sean an avenue to explore a highly creative fusion of song creation and live performance. After many successful live performances the pieces began to gain a momentum of their own and were later released as projects on labels like Thoughtless, Blaq, Pantamuzik, 530Techno, Denied, LW Records, Subplot, and Harmonious Discord. Since the projects inception PointBender has released an impressive 88 song catalog spanning multiple genre’s and morphing through many sounds and shades.
Before the PointBender project began Sean was half of a production duo with a notable ten year catalog of releases. Grey (later re-named Grey Music Project) first appeared on record shelves in 2001 with their debut release on Chicago based music staple Guidance. The quick submersion of the two into the electronic music spotlight paved the path for a discography of back-pocket selections on labels like Fair Park, Chalant, MVM, Deepness, Blunted Funk, Nightshade, and many on their own imprint.
A move to Austin Texas meant the two would produce less music together and more via their solo avenues. Shortly after the PointBender project premiered it showcased a noticeable abstraction from the earlier Grey material. The solo endeavor was messier at times, stranger a majority of the time, and indisputably compelling all the time. This crayon squiggle all over the audible surface area was embodied by the first full length featured on Harmonious Discord called “Sifting through Circuits” and followed up in 2017 with the release of the second album “Dusk Frontier”. Despite his concentrated efforts to become rich and famous and completely sell out Sean will most likely continue to deliver norm shattering niche releases on some of the industries silent monsters.
