Bicyclops is a producer and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto. Weaving his voice through shifting layers of synthesis and static, Phil Johnston's music combines rich atmospheres, electronic rhythms and a penchant for the experimental.
Bicyclops came into being when Phil began to experiment with ambient compositions and destructive sound manipulation techniques while studying neuroscience at the University of Toronto. Inspired by the unexpected beauty of analog and digital artifacts, he produced his first three EPs using a laptop, a microphone, and a VCR. His next EP, ‘Near’ (2017), fused this experimental approach with more focused, vocal-centred songwriting.
Now Bicyclops emerges from the pandemic with his debut full-length album ‘Marooned’, his most fully-realized and ambitious project to date. ‘Marooned’ will be available on Plutoid Records on Friday December 10th, 2021.
