Reginator announces release of Entomology January 31, 2012

Reggie Barnes under the guise of Reginator is proud to announce the release of his debut album, Entomology on January 31, 2012.

This release delivers layered guitars, ample doses of analog & analog modeling synthesizers, electronic drums and multi-range vocals in the genre of Electro-Alternative music. Reminiscent of electronic music of the last 30 years, Reginator vitalizes the sound with rhythmic pulses, syncopation, shifting keys and the unexpected. The album was recorded at the artist’s personal studio, Glade of Utopia / GoU, located in Georgia. All songs were produced, arranged, composed and performed by Reggie Barnes.

How different are we than our insect brethren? Entomology explores this synchronicity with introspective songwriting. From the opening track “The Ant” thru the albums finale “Mantis”, you are taken on a musical journey of semblances. Ten songs in all, each named after a particular creepy-crawly and given the Reginator treatment.

More album details to come…

Let me be the first to request the album as download as well as a physical copy. I’m framing the CD. I’ve seen you go from lyrics jotted down on paper as you cruise on a ship while protecting our country to long hours in your personal studio which included some sessions in your basement closet(sound booth).
Hopefully I’ve help or contributed in some way on your journey to release of Entomology.
I’m proud of you and I can’t wait to celebrate the success of the album.
We might have to pay a bill or two.

Calvin, you’ve supported me through the entire recording and mixing process; can’t thank you enough! This has been a long road and now I can finally share my songs with everyone. Any yes, you’ve contributed probably more than anyone, and lent the much needed critical ear. We definitely have to pay some bills when I come home!
