Beauty In Chaos
An audio assemblage of beauty and chaos curated by guitarist Michael Ciravolo. The BIC-FAMILY features a unique cast of artists … many world renowned, others soon to be.
"'A little over six months after the first release, the incendiary “Finding Beauty In Chaos”, they are back with the force of an atomic bomb, and this time with a monumental tour de force of music royalty."
— KEVIN BURKE
"Beauty In Chaos is a truly brilliant album, forged by a strong creative vision, a collective of huge talents, and a truck-load of passion. To be honest, every song is great. The record also has a lot of depth, and I find myself hearing new aspects of it with each listen. ”
— Dan Peach
In Micheal's own words:
Born of frustration and creativity, BEAUTY IN CHAOS is far more than my ‘solo’ project.
It is a convergence of textures and styles that I envisioned blossoming and evolving. I certainly imposed some constraints on this debut release, mainly that I would play all guitars and no synthesizers would be used. Not from my ego, but as a personal challenge to myself. I wanted to see if I could create the sounds and textures I heard in my head. I think that rather lofty goal was accomplished only in thanks to the other constant in BIC, my long time friend Michael Rozon. A world-class engineer, mixer, producer and musician who pushed me to give my better-than-best on every note on this entity we created. A true sound alchemist, he helped me to orchestrate compositions using only our wide array of guitars and effect pedals … lifting, but never overshadowing the songs. Honestly? Rozon is the engine that revved BIC - it was him that pushed and encouraged me to explore the sounds and textures in my mind and start BIC.
The reason why this musical vehicle we have created is called BEAUTY IN CHAOS is simplistic; yet not so. The vision of a beautiful flower growing in the middle of an abandoned burnt-out building replays over and over in my head when I look to describe the why. Assembling, or in some cases, disassembling beautiful soundscapes, melodies and chords, while injecting harsh bursts of sonics … or visa versa. Light in the dark, dark in the light is the contrast that helps in realizing the goal of creating something musical that is also very visual and cinematic.
BEAUTY IN CHAOS is a musical entity that will continue forward… bringing together artists that might not normally get to create together, and would not have been possible without these amazingly talented artists, many who will continue in the evolution of BIC.
My eternal gratitude to Wayne Hussey, Ashton Nyte, Evi Vine, Al Jourgensen, Dug Pinnick, Robin Zander, Johnny Indovina, Michael Aston, Tish Ciravolo, Betsy Martin, Steven Seibold, Curse Mackey, Zakk Wylde, Michael Anthony, Dirk Doucette, Ice-T, Kat Leon, Pete Parada, Tim Palmer, John Fryer, Kitty Lectro, Rafe Pearlman, Pando, Statik, Kevin Kipnis, Adrienne LaVey, and others that will join our growing BIC FAMILY!
