Martial Canterel (previously called Moravagine) is a minimal wave/synth project by Sean McBride from New York. The projecthas been renamed for his first officially released album “Confusing Outsides” (2005), because there are already two otherbands using the name Moravagine. Martial Canterel records and performs using only vintage analogue synthesizers andsequencers, producing a highly-crafted, complex, and idiosyncratic form of electronic music that is simultaneously romanticallymelancholic and affirmatively aggressive. Inspired both by the first wave of relatively unknown minimal electronic bands inNorthern Europe(a musical genre also often referred to as ‘minimal synth‘) and the seminal industrial noise bands such asThrobbing Gristle, SPK and Cabaret Voltaire, Martial Canterel presents a new optimistic paradigm for electronic music in whichthe analogue synthesizer functions anew as a folk instrument of humanist resistance to a virtual ‘soft synth‘, iPod, and iTunessaturated world of ‘click and drag‘ dematerialized abstraction.

Sean is also a member of the following projects: Xeno and Oaklander (with Miss Liz Wendelbo), Three to Forgotten (togetherwith Miss Liz Wendelbo & Cheyney Thompson) « hide
