Daniel Stanush and Diego Chavez are A.M. Architect, a duo that melds live instrumentation and electronic production techniques into emotive, elegant compositions. Guitar layers and electric piano are broken apart, rebuilt and spread over a rhythm section that fuses hip-hop and beat music. Daniel describes their process, “We’ll record ideas really quickly, some piano, bass, guitar – and then immediately flip it into something new. Then we’ll record more ideas on top of it and flip it again, often ending up with 5 or 6 different compositions from the same source material. Some of those ideas spin off to become new songs, so the process tends to start over. That’s how we made Pattern Language.”
A.M. Architect is from San Antonio, Texas, but currently in Boston, Massachusetts. They have performed live with Tycho, Jimmy Edgar, Mux Mool, and Eliot Lipp.
