5th Projekt to perform at Harry Potter event

It is with great pleasure that we can announce a rather special 5th PROJEKT concert. Casa Loma in Toronto is, of course, Canada's most famous castle. The former home of Sir Henry Pellat, replete with secret passages, secret suites, an 800-foot tunnel and a five-acre estate garden, will host this one-off event marking the book release party of the seventh and final instalment of the Harry Potter saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This wonderful evening will also include dinner, dance and an opportunity to purchase the new book.
The concert follows up 5th PROJEKT's debut album CiRCADiAN, released on their own label Organik Rekords. The album is a multi-faceted work that addresses themes of balance, discovery and the relationship between humanity and the environment.
5th PROJEKT's music has been described in critical circles as unique, imaginative, cinematic rock. CiRCADiAN entered at number 5 on CIUT FM and the band received a nomination for Best International Artist at the 2007 Orange County Music Awards in California. They were also nominated for Best Alternative artist at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. The band has enjoyed critical acclaim and numerous awards.
5th PROJEKT formed in 2003 when disparate souls converged over a kindred musical spirit. The stunning vocals of Tara Rice beautifully complement the guitar of Skodt D. McNalty and the rhythm section of Peter Broadley on bass and Scott Honsberger on drums. CiRCADiAN is the culmination of four years of hard work and inspiration. "In A Coma" sets things going with dreamlike lyrical meditation while "One To Throw Away" takes to task our blatant disregard for the fragile ecosystems that surround us, including our own bodies. The multi-layered "Resistance" features the line "They appear as quickly as they escape, these dreams and revelations," reflecting the album's general musical theme of ambience and surreal atmosphere.
It is this original and eclectic sound that has resulted in their music being showcased at the release party for the Harry Potter book should be quite a night.
"This album is one great kaleidoscopic orgy of sound. True to independent form, the band has added all sorts of experimentation. The four-piece band is in itself an orchestra with listed instruments going well beyond the guitar, bass and drums to include the 'gna gna', a pint glass and field recordings." Neal Moogk-Soulis, Imprint
"5th PROJEKT have fused their influences together to create a distinct sound within the independent music scene." Sarah Hanson, The Gauntlet
"From the dreamy opening first track "In a Coma?", you will be mesmerized by the luscious beauty of Tara Rice's vocals. Although you could call 5th PROJEKT prog rock, the variety in their music is evidence of their refusal to fit neatly into one genre. No two songs are the same, which makes it that much more pleasurable to listen to." Charmaine Merchant, The Spill
CiRCADiAN is available on the web at , CD Baby and iTunes.
