COLEBROOK — John Stotler just recently released his song “Living Stereo” via Spotify under his band name Tricknology.
The song features an organ groove backed by solid beats.
Stotler previously released songs as Tricknology two years ago which can also be found on Spotify.
In an interview with The Winsted Phoenix, Stotler said that he has eight to 10 songs ready to be released.
“Recording new music is fun and is by far the most rewarding thing you can do,” Stotler said. “Mixing, releasing it, and calling it done is the hard part. Because the next time you listen to it, you hear something that you don’t like. So you keep trying to fix it.”
Stotler has lived in Colebrook for the past 12 years and works as a DevOps engineer for a company in Norwalk.
“I love Colebrook because it’s a wonderful place for introverts,” he said. “It’s a solid community of people that will always take care of each other but also stay out of each other’s way. It turns out that, on my grandmother’s side, my family bought land here in 1774.”
Stotler has been creating music since the late 1980s, but through Tricknology he is trying to create music that does not fit in any kind of pre-defined genre.
“I am trying to blend electronic music with more traditional types of music,” he said. “I’ve become sick to death of guitar having grown up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and I am just trying to build the music that I hear in my head that makes me happy. The idea is that Tricknology is a collective where I want to bring in other people to help put music together.”
Tricknology can be found on Spotify, iTunes, and Google Music.
