SmiteMatter is David A Israel
SmiteMatter began making electronic music using a iPod Touch in May 2009. It was immediately inspiring and quickly led to becoming a favored tool for his music production. Embracing the challenges and benefits of the relatively new technology was effortless. Recognized as one of the early iOS music pioneers, SmiteMatter has been a steadfast believer taking full advantage of the new world of options. As the technology changed with the introduction of the iPad, there was no looking back. SmiteMatter completed his first ambient electronic music, album called “Technopolis Lost” which was released October 2011 by FatelessFlows Records.
SmiteMatter continues to make unique electronic music focused on his love for ambient soundscapes. Always exploring sonic realms, he employs numerous synths to create audio stories that surround listeners in interesting layers of lush and melodic scenes. Much inspiration is taken from the local geography in Washington state. Mt. Rainier has been a constant source of inspiration.
SmiteMatter is respectfully influenced in part by early Tangerine Dream, Klaus Shultz, Steve Roach, Mark Isham, Vangelis, to name a few.
SmiteMatter is currently working on a new album called “Chapters”. After several delays due to many obstacles, it is nearing completion and will be released a little later than expected. The official date is undecided, but should be expected to be released finally after the 2014 New Year.
It has a bit of a personal touch being a concept piece about people who for better or worse left life changing impressions. Not dedications, but a kind of musical set of cherished or difficult memories.
The 2nd anniversary of Technopolis Lost is being celebrated by a re-issue of that album with a new cover, and a previously unreleased bonus track. This anniversary edition will be available on BandCamp http://smitematter.bandcamp.com/
