Egg Wizard The original was inspirational to a lot of people, and ten years later, having earned production chops... they revisit with best in class progressive and nuanced explorations of every tune. Unfamiliar with the original? Skip to the remixes and work backwards. Progressive champions Hybrid's remix is amongst the best they've ever done. Favorite track: Parks On Fire (Hybrid Remix).

256 Pi Known about these guys for a long time but only just now got into them. They're pretty dang good, mixing This Binary Universe style abstract electronic stuff with indie rock kinda? Full video review if you're curious: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYNJ6uCLEx0 Favorite track: Parks On Fire.

Erick Hernandez Excelent combination of organic and electronic sounds where each of the tracks tells their own story. Songs and melodies energetic and melancholic at the same time with progressive but not predictable armony. This could be an excelent soundtrack for a hackers movie or videogame. Favorite track: Sooner Or Later.

This is a celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the release of Emergence. Emergence was the beginning of an incredible journey that continues to this day! Emergence (Special Edition) features the original 11 tracks plus 12 remixes by some of our favorite artists, good friends, inspirations, and a brand new Trifonic bonus track!

Emergence was Trifonic’s debut album. It was written and recorded in 2007, and released on February 26, 2008.

About the title:
The term emergence refers to many simple, independent actions giving rise to complex systems and patterns. It’s similar to the concept of order out of chaos. Emergence can be seen in everything from the formation of molecules and the evolution of complex organisms, to behavior in ant colonies and flocks of birds, to traffic patterns and stock markets.

The concept of emergence is applicable in many ways to how we make our music. We typically start with a single sound or idea that we find interesting — maybe a guitar amp setting, a bass note, or just some sort of ambience. Then we begin adding other elements, shaping and refining the sound of each one as we go. This process of layering sounds eventually leads us to the melodies and rhythms that define each song. As a track begins to take shape we start to get a sense of what the finished product might look like. But the track often becomes something very different by the time we’re done with it.

Track Name: Broken
This house is cold and empty
Just a ghost of who I used to be
I stare at my own reflection
Wonder if you’d even recognize me
Last night I heard you whisper
“Everything is fine, I am here, I am here”
Last night I saw your shadow
But when I called your name you disappeared
Who’s gonna say goodnight?
Who’s gonna stop the word from turning?
Who’s gonna numb my pain?
Who’s gonna save me when the sky is crashing down?
I am broken
Track Name: Lies
When you walked away it was the
Saddest day the world has known
Shattered my heart and left me in
Pieces of a broken home
Now you say you need me
Standing at the door
Asking if you can come in
And I can’t say no, I can’t say no
You and I just can’t say goodbye
Every time we do, well
It’s just another lie
I know you’re no good for me, but
Every time I’m with you there’s
Nowhere I’d rather be
We’ve been to hell, been burnt by the
Flames of a pain so deep that
Even the strongest god in the heavens would
Kneel and weep
But here I lie
Pressed against your skin
Right where I want to be
You’re the sweetest sin
Track Name: Sooner Or Later
How happy we are today
The feeling will only escape
No matter who we blame it on
When the thrill is gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
This could be the best we got
And what we got is on our hands
Are you going to the countdown?
Sooner or later it’s all in the past
Sooner or later it floats above the glass
Sooner or later it breaks inside the cast
Sooner or later…
Concrete rubble for concrete dreams
Grains of sand floating in the sea
Passing trains, all the passing trees
Can you heed the whistle please?
Track Name: Good Enough
I will be here when you need me by your side
I will be here once the thrill is gone
I will be here when everything is just right
I will be here after you move on
I’m a rock in the ocean
And you are the tide
You know I am going nowhere
I’m just waiting here for the water to rise
I don’t know how the story ends
And I don’t want to know, so if you do
Don’t tell me
Let’s pretend we write it as we go
Promises are so hard to keep
We say things we don’t mean
You’re here for now is good enough for me
