Sarah Marie and her neurodivergent musical collective embark on a mind-bending odyssey with their latest single, “Gimme A Laser (Kyrie Eleison).” This synth-pop gem isn’t just a song; it’s a sonic exploration that delves into the intricate tapestry of emotions, offering a heartfelt journey into the human experience. The ensemble, a fusion of eclectic talents, features Sarah Marie Nicolosi on synth, melodica, drums, wooden frog, and bell kit; Charles Sadler on synth; Jonathan Ford handling digital percussion soundscape and electric guitar; Charlie Milkey on electric bass; and Michael Nicolosi orchestrating Jupiter-4, wind chime, sleigh bells, guitar FX (synth emulator), ratchet, vibroslap, and acoustic guitar.
Having known each other for over a decade, this group of visionaries found the perfect moment to collaborate, resulting in a musical project that embodies their collective passion for philosophy, mathematics, science, technology, and art. Their influences, deeply rooted in 80’s synth and EDM, infuse the single with nostalgia and a cutting-edge sound that defies genre norms. Notably, Sarah Marie Nicolosi’s recognition as a fiscal year 2023 grant recipient from the Minnesota State Arts Board adds an extra layer of significance to the project, highlighting the intersection of creativity and support for neurodivergent artists.
Recorded in Minneapolis, MN, and expertly produced by Michael Nicolosi with mastering by Jacques Wait, the album not only delivers music but serves as a celebration of neurodivergence, inviting listeners to explore the limitless realms of curiosity. The crown jewel, “Gimme A Laser (Kyrie Eleison),” draws inspiration from the Golden Mean, weaving the Fibonacci spiral and the ancient Greek maxim “Nothing To Excess” into its sonic fabric. This track isn’t just an auditory delight; it’s a synesthetic revelation, discovered during the album’s production through modal composition. “Gimme A Laser (Kyrie Eleison)” stands tall as an anthem for neurodivergent individuals, offering a profound connection between art, science, and the boundless landscapes of the mind. It’s not just a song; it’s a testament to the magic that happens when creativity knows no bounds.
