An introverted classical pianist raised on 80's thrash metal has produced a musically schizophrenic hybrid of chaos and tranquility. Kyle Morrison fronts the metal act TRIPHON as both the vocalist and keyboardist. The daunting solo piano piece, now backed with apocalyptic choirs, a full string section, crunching guitars, and blast beating drums, demonstrates a seamless integration of multiple genres. "It's like Metallica and Beethoven are fighting for dominance over my musical ideas. Some days I want to play screaming thrash metal and other days I only want to hear the notes of my piano. My work is the result of this constant tug of war."
A long time advocate of the Casio Privia series, Kyle seeks to further expand the role of keyboardists in metal. "I'm not the type of guy to simply trigger a few samples. I'm ripping solos, arranging strings, and creating classical piano motifs in order to add an entirely new dynamic to modern metal."
