Hygopian / Bio


HYGOPIAN, like most real bands, began shortly after High School. Beating on instruments in smokey bedrooms, cluttered garages, and anywhere else one could make loud noise. Early on this group of friends also discovered 4-track recorders. Armed with each ones instrument of choice, the members soon began to explore finding their individual voices. In turn leading each of them down varying and differing paths of artistic expression. From time to time over the years, Hygopian members have crossed artistic paths and even at time collaborated on different projects; the likes of which are, stop motion and traditional animation, short films scoring, music production, sketch comedy, visual art, various music projects, and sometimes even as Hygopian. During this period many musical and artistic connections were made. And that leads us to today.
Now, two of the founding members of Hygopian have decided to begin a new undertaking. Setting themselves as the core members, Leonard and Nick, have decided to begin recruiting musicians and artists to be a part of a new project called "Hygopian". To be centered around sound, with visuals also playing an important role. Hygopian's goal is to call upon good friends and artistic collaborators to create something unique & unpredictable. Sometimes enjoyable, sometimes cringe worthy, but always entertaining.
