10T Records is
excited to announce the signing of Fromuz, a 5 piece instrumental band from Uzbekistan (hence the name: From UZ), and the release of their debut CD/DVD Audio Diplomacy on February 20, 2007. The music of Fromuz is a high-energy blend of complex Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion,
and Improvisation, along with healthy doses of Classical and European influences.
Fromuz was officially introduced to the world through the compositions that they debuted in April 2005 at the Youth Theater of Uzbekistan, in Tashkent. This incredibly energetic and expressive live performance is testimony to the intense musical statement that is Fromuz. This seminal live performance, entitled "Playing The Imitation" (of life), was elaborately filmed and has been produced as a DVD, which is to be released in early 2007 along with the audio CD of the performance.
"When we first heard Fromuz, we were floored by their combination of intricate composition, fiery improvisation and their unique mix of classic progressive elements and fusion within a very modern sound," says 10T Records president Steve Carroll. "I believe that Fromuz is the perfect fit for 10T Records as we continue to seek out artists who strive for originality beyond genre borders."
Most recently, Fromuz has been invited to perform at the 2007 edition of the Baja Prog Festival in Mexicali, Mexico. Audio Diplomacy will be released in plenty of time for everyone to familiarize themselves with this amazing act prior to their Baja Prog performance in March of next
year. The artwork for the CD/DVD was created by Ken Westphal, known for his design work on both releases by Proto-Kaw.
Audio Diplomacy is available for immediate pre-order through the 10T Records website. All orders received between now and the official release date will ship by the end of the week prior to the official release. Additionally, selected tracks from Audio Diplomacy are
available to listen to in their entirety through the 10T Records website:
