Biographie de l'artiste

Initially known as the pioneer of trance music, BT has arrived as one of the most cutting-edge artists & producers for a multitude of musical styles. Whether he's crafting perfect pop hooks with *NSYNC, composing intricate scores with orchestras for films like The Fast and the Furious, collaborating with Sting on a track from his forthcoming album, or remixing emotional and languid epics for Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Madonna or Seal, BT consistently balances creative and memorable songwriting, sonic innovation, and the latest technology for a cutting-edge, yet organic sound.

BT, born Brian Transeau, grew up outside Washington D.C. where the first evidence of his musical talent manifested as mastery of composers such as Chopin and Bach by age six. A great break in musical direction came when he heard electronic music as an adolescent. "This is what my heroes Debussy, Stravinsky and the like were looking for. Technology-based music is the only idiom that packs such infinite sonic possibilities. After being introduced to artists like Cabaret Voltaire and Depeche Mode, I turned my back on classical music for quite awhile."

BT's sense of individualism also inspired his scholastic decisions. He dropped out of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1990 to shop his electronic music in Los Angeles. Many doors were slammed in his face because few understood his new unique sound, but he refused to compromise his vision. He returned to the D.C. area and launched Deep Dish Records with long-time high school friends, and recent Grammy award winners, Deep Dish.

Within the year, BT's first releases garnished the attention of English dance pioneer, Sasha, who gave BT his first taste of stardom and the rewards of dance culture. "The first venue he took me to was a barn in Brighton, England," BT recalls, "It was the most amazing party. Three thousand people were sweating and crying over my songs like 'Embrace The Future.' I had found my people."

BT's mix of epic and classically inspired journeys and beats quickly took on the name Trance, and became one of the most popular and dominant electronic music genres played in clubs from London to Tokyo and New York. BT's talent and persistence had finally paid off and he later released his epic albums, IMA, ESCM, and the wildly diverse Movement In Still Life, featuring the hit single, 'Never Gonna Come Back Down.'

BT has also gained the reputation as a talented and versatile film score composer. He scored movies such as the blockbuster hit The Fast and the Furious, Doug Liman's Go, Under Suspicion, starring Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman, and he's currently working on the highly anticipated Monster starring Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci.

"To marry melody, harmony and memorable songwriting with the most bleeding-edge technology possible is my passion. These are the things that excite me."

Voila arrivé pour le moment le dernier album solo de ce très grand dj et producteur qu'est Brian Transeau et je peux tout de suite vous dire que cet album est le plus surprenant de toutes ses productions.

BT a l'habitude de naviguer dans un univers musical qui oscille entre la trance et l'ambiant donc je pensais vraiment trouver cette touche électronique sur Binary Universe.

Cet album n'est en fait composé que de sept titres mais chacun d'entre eux durent entre 10 et 15mn ce qui me semblait bien long pour des morceaux trance.

C'est donc à ma grande surprise que j'ai découvert un album où s'entrecroisent ambiant, classique et voix d'opéra pour un résultat absolument exceptionnel.

Je conseil fortement cet album à tous les fans de BT et pour tous ceux qui pourraient douter, je vous garantie sur facture en tant que connaisseur avéré que vous ne le regretterez pas.

HASH(0x950d672c) étoiles sur 5 Record of the Year 1 septembre 2006
Par Matt A. - Publié sur
Format: CD
If you come into This Binary Universe expecting a rehash of the utterly disappointing, yet mainstream friendly Emotional Technology, you're going to be disappointed. If all you want is generic trance and electronic-pop music, then look elsewhere.

Serious music fans, however, owe it to themselves to pick up BT's latest and greatest CD. Written mostly as a collection of lullabies for his daughter, Kaia, I can only describe it as majestic, unsurpassed beauty in musical form.

The sticker on the CD case contains the following quote:

" could well be studied as the first major electronic work of the new Millennium. It's that good.", Stephen Fortner, Keyboard Magazine

Stephen Fortner is not lying.

This record is a work of art. It's a masterpiece. It's a gift to everyone from one of the most innovative musicians working today and I feel blessed to have heard it and being allowed to share in something so obviously personal.

Never before has a record taken me through such a range of emotions; from pure elation and happiness, to deep, reflective sadness. It's the type of record that can give you hope - it's that remarkable.

"1.618" is so absurdly beautiful it doesn't seem like something that could even be created by a simple human being. "See You On The Other Side" is melancholy, yet so full of hope. The grand scope of "The Anhtkythera Mechanism" is nothing short of mindblowing, but it was the last track on the album that did it.

It was the first song to ever make me weep.

"Good Morning Kaia" is the single most beautiful piece of music I have ever experienced in all the years I have been alive. The accompanying video on the DVD features video footage and still pictures of BT and his daughter together and is so touching, so personal, that only the most jaded individual would find it difficult not to cry as they watch the unadulterated and unconditional love of a father for his daughter. As the pictures and private film rolls by, a message from father to daughter scrolls across the screen. Set to the music, it will move anyone with a heart and soul to tears, and parents themselves should keep a box of tissues handy.

In fact, the real treat of this album IS the DVD, not for the videos for each song. Sure, they're neat and filled with some beautiful and surrealistic CG imagery, but it's the DTS surround sound mix found on the DVD that is worth the extra cash. After hearing the 5.1 mix of the record, it almost seems unfair to listen to the 2-channel stereo recording on the CD.

This record, particularly the surround sound mix, pushes the boundaries of electronic music, yet it still retains much of that trademark BT sound with loads of stutters and filters. Yes, it's downtempo, but it's not a completely new direction for him. Anyone familiar with his film scores may find it somewhat comparable to his score for the film Monster. Personally, I'd rather see BT grow as an artist than make another record like Emotional Technology, which was a severe letdown after the brilliance of Movement In Still Life (by which I refer to the European version, not the cannibalized U.S. release).

I can only thank Mr. Brian Transeau for sharing this amazing work with us all and urge everybody with an open mind and an appreciation for music to purchase This Binary Universe.

HASH(0x9557cde0) étoiles sur 5 Versatility at its finest. 30 août 2006
Par Shawn P. - Publié sur
Format: CD
I'll say right off the bat that I'm sure there will be people who purchase this album thinking it is a lot like his previous releases. I'm here to let you know that it isn't anything like those works in terms of feel, tempo, etc. This release from BT has more of an electronic-melodic-jazzy-classical-ambient-minimal feel to it. The songs range around 10 minutes in length so the 30 second clips don't really give you much to get an idea of what this album has to offer.

If you want a dance album then I would say that you would want to hold off until BT releases his next work. Apparently, he has recorded (other work too more than likely) with DJ Tiesto (Brian sings on a track called "Break My Fall"). I believe he's recording a follow up to his "Emotional Technology" album as well, which he's pretty far into. This is how I understand his current project schedule based off what I've read. I'm not sure what the content will be overall with that release. Regardless, to the people who are wondering when he'll release something dance orientated... its coming.

So, back to the album... BT is a producer at heart so he's showing his versatility even more with this album. If you are familiar his previous works then you'll know that he's also done film scores (Stealth, The Fast and the Furious, Monster, etc.) and worked with other artists as well such as Peter Gabriel or The Roots. This CD touches more on his ambient-melodic side and he puts all that he's known/learned over the years into use. This music is like a journey you go on through a lot of places and feelings before getting back to where you were originally. Each track has a different feel to it so nothing really sounds like the previous track. As you listen to it, I'm sure people will find something that they didn't notice before... it's that deep.

The DTS 5.1 recording adds so much to the experience that if you want to truly get everything out of it then I suggest you play it on a system that supports that. With the CD, you also get a DVD that has videos on it to accompany the tracks. That was an excellent treat to compliment the music. I know a lot of people like to do a breakdown by track but I realized that you need to listen to this on your own to make decisions of that nature. There are lots of things I can say about each individual track but I'd just go on and on. Personally, my favorite track was "1.618" but that was a hard choice to come by.

Ultimately, if you want to witness some excellent versatility in BT's music catalog then this is a really great example of it. This is artistry for music that you have to really sit down and put some time away to just listen. It isn't something you can just listen to on the fly and truly understand what's going on. I've been listening to it most of the time since yesterday before typing this. People who will be expecting a dance album will be disappointed but give it a listen because this is something very special. It is an excellent piece of work and I am glad to have experienced this.

HASH(0x93fc90fc) étoiles sur 5 Ambient At It's Best 30 août 2006
Par Josephll - Publié sur
Format: CD
BT or Brian Transeau is a longtime dance music artist by now, He released "IMA" in 1995 and the big break "ESCM" 2 years later that was a mix between ambient and commerical eletro-house and techno-pop. "Flaming June" for example was a club hit. By the years things have changed a little though, "Emotional Technology" was in a more progressive direction and the soundtrack to Charlize Theron's film "Monster" was ambient film music. With highly anticipated "The Binary Universe" there is only 7 songs but they all are long and meliodic ambient. For those of you that wanted another highly accessable and commercial "Flaming June" you will get dissapointed, this album is non-commercial, Kind of like Moby's last one, but BT is superior to Moby when it comes to release dreamy and meliodic ambient music, but For those of you that own "ESCM" and liked songs like "Orbitus Terranum", you are gonna love this album. "Binary Universe" is very exprimental, with more cinemographic sounds that could have been from another soundtrack. It's also exprimental, in the sense that loads of diffrent sounds are squezed into the diffrent songs, kind of like Avant-Garde Jazz or early Pink Floyd that squezed several pieces of songs into every number. Infact there is lots of melancholy jazz on this album, electro, orchestral and classic pieces. It's not very accesable, in the sense that none of the songs are made for the charts and all of the songs are long and often change rhythm or melody through the song. BT is just following his heart, exprimenting further and "going back to his roots" with some classical music which he played as a kid. I think it's too difficult to go into song by song, it's something you have to experience by yourself while listening to them, cause like I mentioned all songs goes in diffrent musical pieces and they are hard to comment, but most are classic half slow ambient (with diffrent arrangements) the "The Antikythera Mechanism" however sounds like the soundtrack to a Isaac Asimov science fiction film, it's futuristic, robotic and with brilliant orchestral work. Just liste to this album in patience and you'll find the goodies. Maybe you're Stressed after a long day at work?, Relax, turn the lights off, and turn on this album. There are also DVD versions included of all of the songs. Original? You bet.

HASH(0x93f53768) étoiles sur 5 BT- This Binary Universe 28 septembre 2006
Par J. Dunkel - Publié sur
Format: CD
I have to say, this is one of the most astonishing and inspirational pieces of music I have ever heard. BT has always been a musical genius, in my opinion, and this album is definitive proof. His other works are definately masters of the trance and house genre, but what BT does on "TBU" is show everything he as learned since he was an infant playing the piano to the more recent works and has created a musical achievement. I can't remember the last piece of music that blended new age classical pieces and ambient that had this much of an effect on me (the closest I can think of is some songs from Moby's "Play"). Easily one of the best albums of 2006, and quite possibly ever.

HASH(0x93fc9aa4) étoiles sur 5 Dreamtime... 27 janvier 2007
Par A. Ort - Publié sur

I bought this based on the reviews. I know a little of BT and his trance days but kinda figured this wasn't that. So I took a gamble. It is one of the most unique pieces of music I've heard in a while. I'm a big electronica/techno fan and it is really hard to find anything that truly stands out from the din.

So I was sick several days ago, the kind of sick (and caffeine withdrawal) where most of the day is sleep. So I put the DVD on and got about half way through the first song and was lulled to sleep not, mind you, in a dullsville kind of way, but in a lulling, peaceful kind of drift. As the morning rolled on I would drift in and out, catching bits and pieces of various songs on this album. I found it entering my dreams. And the visuals are trippy enough to tweak the brain a little but not so much that in a year or two they will look like tired old computer graphics. The whole package really made for a truly peaceful morning.

As I've since listened to this awake and alert I've realized that this is a revolutionary work. It's got electronic sound throughout, with beeps and blips and the sounds of glitch, but woven in throughout are guitars, piano and a symphonic sound to the whole work. Trance this isn't. What it is is beautiful. It's hard to say that about electronic music sometimes but even my wife, who thinks my musical taste is, to put it kindly, weird, was entranced and I found her sitting by my side that morning watching along with me.

Dreamy, beautiful, mesmerizing. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
