Cinematic being the easiest way to describe it, 5th Projekt has created a style of music that is part ambient, part experimental, part drama and part spiritual. It is the kind of music that you can imagine Shakespeareâs tragedies being played to.

Once upon a time...

Where the dark meets the enlightenment, that's where you'll find 5th Projekt, constantly grappling with the sturm und drang, the external and internal, the knowledge and ignorance, the yin and yang, searching for Circadian balance, slaves to Circadian rhythm, the internal body clock that informs the daily cycles of all living things and the universe in which we coexist.

In 2003, disparate souls converged over a kindred musical spirit and 5th Projekt materialized with their offering of idyllic, cinematic rock. Collectively, they share a musical sensibility that has resulted in a recent invitation to showcase at the 2006 Canadian Music Week Festival, a nomination for Best Alternative Artist at the Toronto Independent Music Awards, a Showcase feature in Canadian Musician Magazine, a summons to the 2005 ROCKRGRL Conference in Seattle, an invitation to the 2005 NXNE music festival and a nod from Montreal's CJLO FM ranking their "DEMOn001" in the top ten EPs of 2004. The song "Skepticosm" found its way, while still in demo mode, onto the Anti-Hit List, a very influential "Alternate Top 10" compiled by music writer John Sakamoto. 5th Projekt was also featured on CBC Radio DJ Sook-Yin Lee's Definitely Not the Opera as Independent Artist of the Week.

It was a deep interest in the effects of cycles and in the ways human
individual rhythms interact with nature that ignited 5th Projekt's debut
album CiRCADiAN. Produced by memebers of 5th Projekt, recorded at Toronto's Chemical Sound with James Heidebrecht (Daniel Lanois, Sarah Slean, Sloan), mixed by Ken Andrews (Failure, A Perfect Circle, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Charlotte Martin) and mastered by Juno winner Joao Carvalho (Danny Michel, Sarah Harmer, Blue Rodeo), the album takes on the themes of balance and discovery.

The journey begins "In A Coma," setting the pace for the dreamlike lyrical exploration and the atmospheric compositions that characterize the album. The goal of the album is to capture humanity in all its diverse facets. The images that the music invokes are as various as the individuals who listen.

In "One to Throw Away," the central theme of disdain for the blatant disregard of ecosystems, both within ourselves and in the world around us, comes to light while the music paints a backdrop of darkness.

As the multi-layered "Resistance" tells us "they appear as quickly as they escape, these dreams and revelations." And so do the images conjured up by the songs, elusive as déjà vu. If any of it rings true or strikes a chord in the psyche of any one listener, then CiRCADiAN's cycle is complete.
