"My only regret is that I didn't join TAXI years ago but it's never too late to make up for lost time."
"Thanks to TAXI I no longer have a day job! The membership fee was a drop in the bucket compared to what I have earned because of TAXI."
Geoff Nostrant - Silvercord
Growing up under the rural thumb of Michigan, I was raised on the old psychedelic rock records my dad insisted on playing. As a teen, I grew tired of the local's undying love of the classic rock scene.
I began to listen to ambient /space radio programs late at night under the stars. I was hooked on the weightless, wondrous feelings of ethereal music. Flash forward to the university years. I was introduced to the marriage of ethereal space music and rock/pop. That was it for me. I began to record/produce tracks that reflected the dreamy feeling that resonated in me when I listened to ambient music. I then graduated from Eastern Michigan University's music program, my major instrument was classical guitar.
12 years later, I am now living in Korea. I am still completely in love with making music. The Korean music industry is just as unforgiving as the States. As a challenge to myself, I have been creating radio friendly music while maintaining my dream-like style. I also write solo and collaborate with original Silvercord members and ambient composers on musical projects every day. There is no sign of stopping!
Since, I have been with taxi, I have secured multiple song library contracts with multiple music libraries.
I have recently opened a music mixing/mastering business: www.blackswanaudio.com
Published works: My work has appeared on ambient compiliations such as fellow ambient musician Brennan Lane’s “Distant Friends" http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012DGPPS
I also write, produce, and sing songs in the Korean language
I keep my plate of musical passion full as possible!
silvercord (the band project)
Silvercord was formed in the autumn of 1999 by Michigan natives, Geoff Nostrant, Ken Ball and Joe Klowski at their collective Studios. Inspired by the music of such bands as Slowdive, the Cure, Dead Can Dance, Eno and the Autumns, Silvercord dares to deviate from pop music culture to cross into the mind set of listeners who wish to make an aural experience their own. We believe music is a drug.
