Animus Invidious / Press

"Composer Animus Invidious has shared a wealth of custom devices for Ableton Live 9 via the PerforModule series. PerforModule devices include practical and more experimental effects, and range from one-knob "instant"-style trigger effects to more subtle and complex multi-effects. Listen to a sample from a recent Effects Rack, "Vocoverb", which uses Live's Vocoder to get reverb-esque sounds:"

“Killer tunes man!”

“Listening to the draft mastered tracks for my next album and OMG @a_invi made it sound SO good. I cannot wait to share this. But I must.”

“If there was a film about a jellyfish who fell out of the ocean, down into the night sky, these songs would be on the soundtrack."”

“Check out this dudes music... its not only talented work, but itll take you to another place! Find Your Happy Place Today!!!!”

“Animus Invidious set up is amazing! As a tech loving dude, I was in awe with the ingenuity !! BIG UP!!”

"each track is so aptly titled... poke won't leave me alone (in a good way)... tickle is mischievous and fun as hell... and can't get enough of devour - thank you Animus!"

“animus uses 'djing' as a medium; instead of painting or writing he manipulates our ability to perceive sound - and to describe animus as a dj to not even scratch the surface, akin to enjoying jimi hendrix cos he wore wild clothes, you're missing the point”

“Animus invidious releases free 12.12.12 EP”

“Animus has the golden ears. Haha, kinda like a Bond or Dick Tracy villain.”

"You bodied my ep, in a very good way, you are my hero"

“DJ - 1st Place: Animus Invidious”

"It's hard to think of a local deejay with a more unusual approach than Animus Invidious."

"excellent...it's like being immersed in nature...it overcomes you not by the sword, but by the rhythmic syncopation...I also feel machine elves riding through me when I listen to part 3. A mischevious blend of harmonic intonation that brings at-one-ment to the dedicated listener."

“Can't wait to see ya again man. You're shit is always da bestestest!!”

“You are the best DJ EVER!!!”

“Your songs are in 3d.”

“Creepy and lovely.”

“Ooooh my God you are awesome!”

“I listen to his stuff when I like to let the imagination run wild with the Universe, when I need a break from the norm, I click on this...”

“That was great man, and the production values were excellent.”

“Sounds like a danceable soundtrack to a video game dream.”

“That was one crazy gig. So much energy. So much fun. Totally over the top party.”

“Animus Invidious rocked the house night before last. Insane party.”

“lol that.... seems achievable. lol I like the thought of ancient animus sitting at his archaic laptop in the year 999 after time has reached 0 and started over again, saying to himself, "c'mon, c'mon, just one more!"”

“Compared to all that, Animus Invidious is pretty normal. You probably know him best for his DJing skills, which placed him among the winners in our Indy Music Awards. But you may also know him as a recording artist of the 'organic and electronic genre-bending improvisational' variety...”

“...Animulo, the art-funk duo featuring bassist Charlie Milo and Animus Invidious, who used two videogame controllers to turn E-40's "Tell Me When to Go" into a glitched-out magnum opus.”

“best 'acoustic' album i've ever heard (and i've heard a lot...) if i start listening to this, it's the only thing i can listen to the rest of the day...”

“Yeh this music could be in the dictionary definition of eclectic enlightened and trippy harmonies.”

“your album is perfect for the mabon i am so enjoying listening to it with the rustle of leaves outside my window while i am stuck in the house doing work. blessings to you on this day!!”

“DJ - 3rd place: Animus Invidious”

“There's nothing like creating great works of literary art while listening to this guy's music: Animus Invidious.”

“you do good enough as it is, superior actually if you must know, i admire your workl immensely, always have .....so THERE> bbbbzzzzzzzzzzzzz...........”

“Animus, Your intuition is extremely keen. Andy”

"Animus is poised to take over and if you haven't heard him you gots ta!"

“WOW!!! Embrace paradox has some great tracks. The chord progression on All Ugliness..... is extremely cool, Flutterby is another one of my favorites.”

“Amnesia Insulation .... A W E S O M E ”

“I Like your world, very cool!”

“This is mad. I dig it. ”

“This is amazing!!! thanks so much for your amazing creation. I feel I have found gold! Fantastic work on all aspects”

“Hauntingly Melodic”

“Fuh-Reaking Gnarley with a capital G! my eyes, and ears both had gasms.”

“I'm checking out your music and I really really like it. This is a lot coming from me because I hate a lot of music.”

"...the electro-acoustic paradox of Animus Invidious..."

“Really wonderful.”

“i really am enjoying the great noise going into my earholes this morning, brilliant job!”

“totally digging the new album. thank you.”

“Wonderful music! Great work. Enjoying it a lot! Thank you very much!!!! :)”

“Your new album is awesome, sir. I have been enjoying it quite a bit.”

“Holy Funkin' Womp! Animus Invidious and the Charlie Milo Trio killed it tonight! And then rejuvenated us all with lightning till we were walking around like Frankenstein..”

“animus you are amazing.. thank you for sharing yourself with us.. wow.”

“It all sounds strangely familiar and comforting and quite beautiful...I truly enjoy it. Thank you.”

“It's very good. I like the Oh Well > Ow Hell chunk”

“i got an early mix of this and was blown away, never have i heard acoustic guitar music sound like this...”

“Really lush waves of sound. Reminds a little of Arvo Part. With guitar, I mean.”

“fantastic brother just fantastic...”

“I think I'm just gonna start it over...”

“the more I listen the more unique I realize this is and how there isn't anything I can listen to as a follow-up...”

“Well done Animus your music is really good. I like how I respond to these original musical sounds, very eclectic and entertaining.”
