Bio

The Alaya Conscious is redefining a genre. That's no small claim, but the three young men from Chicago, IL have the size to match such statements. With inspiration stemming from a diverse multitude of artists residing in literally any existing style, The Alaya Conscious exhibits a youthful and modern instrumental sound that is progressive while maintaining a distinct density to their aggressiveness that only an act from the city of broad shoulders could produce.

The Alaya Conscious was initially formed in the summer of 2006 by three closely knit friends seeking to create a vocal centric sound. Following the departure of their vocalist during the production of their 2007 debut release, “Seventy One Percent”, The Alaya Conscious would take bigger strides to take the Chicago scene by storm, this time with a different view. By 2008, The Alaya Conscious line-up was back to where it all began. Recharged to evolve from its roots into something completely against the grain, the original three had something new and unexpected.

Armed with a new record, The Alaya Conscious brings a fresh new sound to the instrumental genre. Inspired by forging their own voice and the exploration of poly rhythmic and metric arrangements, The Alaya Conscious has carved three flawlessly flowing movements into their new ep, “RED”. Recorded by Ben Soleim (Skinless, Wilco, The Lifeline, Macabre) at The Sterling Group Studios in New Lenox, IL, "RED" is the result of an experimental and organic writing and recording process, a concept new to the band. Released on June 9th, 2009, the new record exhibits a broad range of dynamics and timbres not often used in the instrumental genre to produce a sound of melodic, inspiring backdrops grounded in aggressive, carefully sculpted rhythms. "RED" symbolizes the process of this trio getting back to writing the music they love, driven by raw emotion and talent.

The Alaya Conscious is currently writing and recording their third record and first full length album, due out the summer of 2010. The material represents a lot of changes and new musical directions for the band...stay tuned.
