Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist SLUKA will release visual album (3D/4K/Bluray) on November 3
Multi-faceted performer, songwriter and aesthetic visionary SLUKA is set to release a ten-song visual album, Colorful Radiation, on November 3. It will be available on Amazon in a combination of 3D, 4K and Bluray. Its first single/video release will be “Rise,” due out on September 29.
Colorful Radiation is SLUKA’s 11th studio album to date, and he has a fan base that spans across continents.
To categorize SLUKA’s music as “rock” is an oversimplification. Its often lush, ethereal sounds are a juxtaposition of elements found in classic, pop, gothic, progressive and alternative rock, which has resulted in a very difficult-to-define genre all its own. “Enigmatic rock,” perhaps…?
Multi-talented Christopher Sluka is the embodiment of the term “Renaissance Man,” and is as genre-defying as his music. He’s a songwriter, producer, performer, and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano, drums, bass, violin, trumpet, trombone, french horn, ukelele, and synthesizer). He is also a world-renowned visual artist, whose surreal oil paintings have been displayed in galleries all over the US, Europe and Asia. All art aside, Chris also happens to be an aircraft pilot, who owns and operates a flight school in San Diego, CA, and is chief flight instructor. And he’s as a long-distance runner as well.
Knowing all of that about Sluka, it makes perfect sense that he would create a visual album on three formats. “I appreciate when artists really immerse themselves in creating the best work they can,” he explains. “From the initial inspiration, the performance, and the quality of recording. The same holds true for the visuals. 4K, 3D, and Bluray are the best quality for home viewing/listening, and I really wanted to push the envelope. It all just appeared in my head… the songs, the arrangements of instruments, and the visual ideas as well, all at the same time.”
