"When does a guitar NOT sound like a guitar?

Ionosphere Casting Shadows is an ambient guitar project produced by aliensporebomb multi-instrumentalist Todd Madson as an outlet for his mostly beatless ambient and looped guitar drones. Instead of amped up freaked out guitar excursions you have slow, and sometimes quiet journeys to unexpected universes.  Which is to say we don't rule out the occasional guitar extravaganza.  

Hear why audiences have called the live Ionosphere Casting Shadows experience "A one man Pink Floyd" and "trippy and spacey yet relaxing and meditative."

There are no overdubs, no preconcieved parts, no samples triggered - this is all live produced by ten fingers, two feet, six strings and a device called an stereo audio looper.  Everythng you hear is produced by electric guitar thru various signal processing units - you are not hearing synthesizers.  Enjoy the quieter side of the universe!  And sometimes not so quiet!

Guitarist Madson created the Ionosphere Casting Shadows project as a way to indulge his abiding interest in ambient music and making a guitar sound as unlike a guitar as possible.

ICS has made appearances at Convergence since 2008 and has appeared locally at The Eye of Horus bookstore, The St. Paul ArtCrawl, Art-a-Whirl, The Healing Loft, J&S Bean Factory, Bellaluna Boutique plus five appearances at the Shadows Faire in St. Paul and is celebrating the release of his work for the soundtrack to the film "Solveig: The Life and Art of Solveig Arneng Johnson" that has just had a showing at the Minneapolis Swedish Institute, Norwegian television, and numerous film festivals and showings at various universities around the country.
