Portrait of HALF PAST FOUR

Half Past Four is a unique and innovative art-rock band. Crafting original, fresh soundscapes from their headquarters in Toronto, Canada, Half Past Four offers exquisite musical novelty and experimentation to true musical connoisseurs and rock-party goers alike. Drawing its inspiration from unique heritage of King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull and many other progressive, kraut, art and math-rock bands, Half Past Four takes pride and pleasure in taking progressive rock a little further and planting its seeds in the harsh soil of contemporary popular culture.

The current version of the group exists since early 2005. Its debut has been celebrated by an opening concert at the Opera House and ensuing kaleidoscope of performances and projects thereafter. A well-received demo recording of 2006, followed by scoring the Billy Zane "Zomedy" horror movie "The Mad" and playing many cool venues with lots of great new bands resulted in recording their first full album entitled "Rabbit in the Vestibule".

Half Past Four's style is hard to describe as the group does not restrict itself to following one specific genre. Free of mercantile ambitions, musicians concern themselves with what they do best – writing and performing a free spirited, never before played chord structures and melodies. Experimental arrangement, fusion composition, polyrhythmic structures and atonal melodies are not uncommon in Half Past Four music. Going as far as constructing their own sound equipment and musical instruments, Half Past Four sheds the traditionalist shell and presents itself in its inimitable, distinctive and inspiring sound which breathes positivism and freedom. Listen to it, and you will know what I mean.
