Earth-Friendly Indie Music

Hot off the raging success of Stimulator (Lab/Universal), Snake River Conspiracy (Reprise), and T-Ride (Hollywood Records), solo artist/ guitarist/ producer/ entrepreneur Geoff Tyson is hovering dangerously close to infamy with his new album, Slow Mad Descent, an eclectic, sometimes crazed sonic journey, written, recorded and produced by Tyson in his Los Angeles studio.

Geoff, who plays most of the instruments on the album, describes it as “Prince meets Pink Floyd. It has a good feeling. It’s guitar-driven rock you can listen to while you’re shagging,” Tyson muses, with a slow smile.

Tyson, with a history of playing in a succession of ground breaking cult bands, has spent the past few years in major label limbo, battling the notoriously defective music industry.

But no more.

Geoff Tyson is in position to lead his charge into earth-friendly music and technology history, creating the first ever Geoff Tyson Mobile Music Application enabling music fans to experience a visually explosive, interactive album release right on their mobile phones.

“I invented it as a way to get around the monopoly of the music industry machine.” Geoff says.

Called the TysonApp, it’s an application that you download to your mobile device and run like a video game. When you run the TysonApp, it turns your mobile handset into a digital, interactive album portal into Geoff Tyson’s vast musical world. Complete with an animated album booklet, songs, lyrics, music videos, guitar lessons, screen-savers, ringtones, and a direct connection to Geoff Tyson himself, it is truly a groundbreaking mix of art and technology.

“It’s the future of album design.” Geoff says, “These mobile devices are powerful media-playing computers. Physical media is dead. I don’t even own a CD player anymore. It’s part of my shift to earth-friendly, zero-impact lifestyle”

“There are no physical Cds so that means no manufacturing waste, no transportation cost, no paper, no plastic, and it can reach every person with a 3G mobile device in the world in an instant.”

“I remember as a kid immersing myself in the cover art of an LP while I was listening to it. It was so much cooler than downloading disembodied tracks from I Tunes,” he laughs, “I want to take my audience back to those days.”

Every ‘page’ of Geoff’s digital CD booklet plays one of 11 new songs, while giving the viewer animated art and illustrations, lyrics, videos, and news updates. “I’m basically turning your mobile device into a personalized, branded interactive Geoff Tyson experience. Not to mention that it’s environmentally friendly and the music is cool as hell.”

“Just go to my mobile web site www.geofftyson.mobi, or my regular site www.geofftyson.com and click on the TysonApp Link and download it right to your phone. It’s so easy, even a record company executive can do it!”

I’m removing the power from the hands of old media. Now I have a direct connection to my fans without depending on any slow moving middlemen.”

Geoff Tyson is slated to release both The TysonApp and the highly anticipated album, Slow, Mad Decent, on August 31st, 2007 in most European countries, followed by India and China in October, South America in November, Japan in December, and will finally be unleashed in the United States by early 2008. It is also available on I Tunes all over the world.
