Reflection Theory’s soundscape defies traditional categorization. This is leaving new fans amazed and critics puzzled. It is not about a particular genre or image. Reflection Theory is about creating an authentic, multi-dimensional experience combined with music, visual arts and powerful performances.
Reflection Theory marries the sensibilities of American Rock/Pop with European-based Electronic/Dance. The multi-national group uniquely blends DJ-centric, multi-genre music with operatic-diva vocals, vocoder rants, electric and acoustic guitars, funked-out bass lines, and a hybrid of electronic and organic percussion.
