   Travis Tambone is the song-writer, performer, and engineer for his band, The Auricle. He resides in beautiful Victoria, BC.

   The Auricle music would best be described as alternative post-rock in that it has an alternative sound, but is post-rock in its ambience and song structure. Often sounding beautiful and psychedelic, influences and comparisons can be drawn to The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, and Marilyn Manson on one hand, and to Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and Caspian on the other.

   Lyrical themes include perceptual theory, the human condition, and the paradox of being spiritual despite the apparent absence of a deity. Travis’ personal interests include language and linguistics, art, history, literature, and philosophy.
