Side projects

IC 434 sideprojects are the recent SKYSHIFTER and the older PANGEAN DREAMS act. 

PANGEAN DREAMS has the intention to breath an energetic "pre-human" atmosphere, released from civilisation fears, by using the latest music soft & hardware and producing techniques.

A sideproject of IC 434, called TEMESTA, started at the end of the 90's. TEMESTA, named after an anxiolyticum (a medical drug that drives fears away, still a social taboo) was a one man project, mainly without lyrics not especially meant for one specific music scene. Some people described it as a mix of EBM and Goa Trance. While IC 434 never uses other sound equipment than world's first music workstation, the legendaric Korg M1, TEMESTA did not follow this principle but used more modern synths and music software. This can for example be heard on Hypnotise, a contribution on Belgian's DARK ENTRIES music magazine sampler Dark Demons, The First Breed.

By the end of 2001, TEMESTA had been renamed PANGEA, because a resident techno DJ from Café D'Anvers (a well know dance hall in Antwerp) called TEMMESTA (double m!) already was operating in Belgium. PANGEA is the name of the supercontinent on earth, some 200 million years ago (which had a bit the shape of a foetus). Due to geological processes, this continent was divided in the continents as we know them now (Eurasia, Africa, Oceania, North America, South America, Antarctica). Impressed by the PANGEA gig at the Belgian Independent Music Festival 1 at the end of 2002, Guy Van Mieghem, former frontman from VOMITO NEGRO asked IC 434  to join his band after the collaboration with Gin Devo ended. Of course this proposal was accepted and Guy immediately started remixing the PANGEA song Permafrost. It's a pity this remix hasn't been released by now. In the meantime, the PANGEA versions of Permafrost were released on the BREAKDOWN STUDIO label as its first official CD by May 2003.

 

 

 

Just as TEMESTA, PANGEAN DREAMS is no 'dark electro' at all, although 'dark', but deals with a mix of Goa Trance, some EBM and industrial sounds, if you want any references.
