BIOGRAPHY: Daniel Stanush and Diego Chavez are A.M. Architect, a Boston-based duo that blends live instruments and electronic production into emotive, elegant compositions. Originally from San Antonio, Texas but currently residing in Boston, Massachusetts, they have performed live with Tycho, Jimmy Edgar, Mux Mool, and Eliot Lipp.

ABOUT PATTERN LANGUAGE: On February 5, 2013, A.M. Architect will release their third studio record, Pattern Language, via Toronto's Urbnet Records. Lush, melodic guitar layers and electric piano are broken apart, rebuilt and spread over a rhythm section that fuses hip-hop and beat music. Daniel describes their process: Wed record ideas really quickly--some piano, bass, guitar--and then immediately flip it into something new. Then we'd record more ideas on top of it and flip it again, often ending up with five or six different compositions from the same source material. Some of those ideas spin off to become new songs, so the process starts over.

The album name is an extension of the concepts in Christopher Alexander's 1977 urban design book, "A Pattern Language." The book's hypertext format encourages us to collaborate, and examines how our environments and ideas form networks and patterns. Watch for remix material available to the public soon.
