HISTORY
Founded in 2001 in Dave Belazis' studio, Conscious Structure began life as an experiment. A year later, the group released the very electronically rooted "Non-Human Figure" with the intention of limited distribution and a few local performances. Much to the surprise of the band, they soon developed a very loyal local following and soon were playing shows in New York City. In late 2004, Conscious Structure began writing their sophomore album Universal Antithesis and just when production seemed to be wrapping up in 2006 and during live personnel auditions, upon rehearsing the new material with newly enlisted drummer Ernesto Perez, it became very clear that much of the album would benefit from an overhaul. In the seven months that followed almost every track was completely reworked to incorporate a more organic feel, leaving still a tasteful array of electronics, and in September of 2006 the album's mixes were completed and it was mastered in Los Angeles by Tom Baker (NIN, Deftones, Beastie Boys, BT) The new album Universal Antithesis was released on May 1st, 2007
