When driving east on 17 towards
the Catskill Mountains, there are rolling hills, apple orchards, and a thousand
people in Apalachin, New York that one passes by quickly. Multi-instrumentalist
Kyle Corcoran has taken that drive countless times since relocating to Brooklyn.
Despite his new surroundings, the dynamic inspired by this contrast of
landscape is inherent in Corcoran’s music. From the remote melodies of a Fender
Rhodes to the layered flurry of electronic soundscapes, Corcoran creates
began playing drums at nine years old, grew to play in numerous cross-genre
bands, and has released seven albums under the moniker Blue Chain Language
since 2001. In addition to making music, Corcoran has worked for over a decade
on personal and commercial work, such as creating scores for film and
television, and developing content for various internet and design projects. As
an aural and visual artist who draws inspiration from the isolation of his
beginnings, Kyle Corcoran brings a clear vision to his work to ensure it won’t
be passed over without notice.
