Songs without words
Through a boldly unique & eclectic combination of artistic expression & technical precision, The Laconic has been creating a powerfully compelling catalog of music designed to fully transcend any previously perceived notions of what instrumental music can be like to experience. Seamlessly blending the analog & digital realms into one extraordinary hybrid, The Laconic specializes in developing sensory sound that comes alive through its impeccable attention to detail, and exquisite melodies that have proven to move hearts & minds all around the globe. As proficient and ambitious as is it irresistibly adventurous, every recording that this project creates is truly destined to connect to listeners in a variety of profound ways.
Fearlessly willing to explore the unknown with enthusiasm and passion for the craft, Marc Pelath, is the driving force behind the stunningly Progressive instrumental sound of The Laconic. Personally inspired by legendary names in music’s history like Genesis, Yes, Mike Oldfield, Donald Fagen, and Trevor Rabin, Marc challenged himself to carve out a space for himself as an artist in an effort to create memorable moments guaranteed to take listeners on an audible odyssey unlike any other. With a largely solo debut record called Integrals firmly establishing The Laconic’s presence online on Progressive playlists all over the world, Marc began a journey that opened the door to a remarkable new level of his own creativity.
Each subsequent year has yielded spectacular results. In 2023, he enlisted an array of sensational talent to create the highly versatile and wildly dynamic set-list of material upon his second album Amor Fati. In 2024, Marc worked closely with composer Kid Arrow to create his third album Time And Tide, which saw Pelath expand his creative freedom, surrendering a more controlled approach to spark the opportunity for his instrumentation to evolve artistically yet again. From the sounds of his signature U8 touch guitar, to his awe-inspiring collection of synths, to his inherent cleverness in programming drums and supplying the bass rhythms of his songs – The Laconic expertly creates the sense of wonder people crave in music, and with each exciting entry into its catalog, generates a thrilling new chapter in a legacy to be proud of.
