About

 

Mandelray is a side project of Australian musician & producer Robert Chomicz. Combining downtempo, cinematic, ambient, and electronica sounds and styles into a new collage of music that is mixed and broken down with exotic beats and audio textures. The music can often jump geographic and stylistic boundaries with influences of world roots instrumentation spilling over from one of Robert's other music projects, GAVRI. 

 

Based in the east coast Australian city of Gold Coast, Mandelray is predominately a solo effort with occasional guest artists supplying extraordinary vocals and additional instrumentation. A masterful merge of modern technology and live performances.

Mandelray is also the conduit that allows some of the back catalog of music and audio experimentation that Robert has produced to be finally released, demonstrating an evolution of one artist's work and his influences. 

Welcome to the Mandelray website, where all the music doesn't sound the same. For all releases, checkout the  Gavri Music Store.

The Curious One

Mandelray

In cart Not available Out of stock

Never afraid to examine the sonic depths of his emotions, Mandelray’s new single release could be accused of exploring yet another musical direction via his latest track “The Curious One”. Fat filtered beats and glitchy ambient vocal samples drive this track into the realms of a cinematic experience. A somewhat experimental affair that delivers syncopated off-beat drums, organic and glitchy electronica with a pulse that would be right at home at a music festival.

Secrets You Keep

Mandelray

In cart Not available Out of stock

Dreamy dark and mysterious, Secrets You Keep hints at taking you on a hypnotic and meditative journey. With its cinematic atmospheres, Depeche Mode like vocal performed by John Desmarchelier and the angelic female vocal performance of Odette Avalon, Mandelray explores new sonic textures within the Electronica realm.

The track is anchored by a solid low-end bounce with beats ranging from filtered percussion, elements of glitch and traditional drums. The intricate and inventive use of synths and electric guitar only adds to the dynamics of the track and blends well with the swelling background vocals and additional sonic atmospheres that help create much of the emotive expression of the song. Lyrically the track expresses the need for connection, the wish for intimacy and the eternal search and desire for love.

Credits : Written by John Desmarchelier, Robert Chomicz and Odette Avalon. Vocals by John Desmarchelier and Odette Avalon, Guitars, Keys and Programming by Robert Chomicz. Produced, Engineered and Mastered by Robert Chomicz.

Peyote Tree (Digital Download)

Mandelray

In cart Not available Out of stock

When Robert Chomicz aka Mandelray invited reclusive singer-songwriter Shank Godley Butcher to collaborate on Peyote Tree, hopes were not high. But within 24 hours, Chomicz received an email that included an epic rap obviously inspired by the trip-inducing instrumental track. Butcher traveled from Cambodia to Australia, spending days in the Mandelray studios. The result is the closest representation of an hallucination you'll ever experience in song form. Peyote Tree is the story of a man abandoned in the desert where, instead of certain death, he discovers the secrets of the universe. Biology, botany and metaphysics collide as God becomes man, and man becomes God. The pounding beats and meticulously crafted sounds are Chomicz at his finest. The producer, best known for Gavri, has created a dance floor filler while Butcher tells a colourful and often humorous tale that will challenge any imagination.
