John Jacobus from Atlanta, GA has released a handful of cross-pollinated solo EP’s since 1998 under the name TRICIL. TRICIL has always been a genre blurring project, mainly sticking to melodic IDM with harsh industrial and slight dubstep and electro flourishes. A guitarist at heart, many TRICIL songs, such as The Emancipation, take their origin on the guitar before being translated in to the electronic realm.

Accolades include playing live keyboards for German electronic act Haujobb in 2007, doing Ableton Live programming for Goodie Mob in early 2010, and one time getting on stage with Pigface to sing “Suck” and “Supernaut” on Thanksgiving 2001. Industrial legend Chris Connelly unplugged John’s mic for coming in 8 bars too early – this is a true story. Other credits include two Nerd Parade albums and tours, a full length with The Secret Life and remixes for Celldweller, Recompas, Architect, and Haujobb.

In 2010, TRICIL released The Emancipation on Clear Notice Records garnering Hype Machine recognition and a critically acclaimed music video released via unique iPad application.
