Moody Masterpiece: Textural Master Michael Ciravolo Discusses 'Finding Beauty in Chaos'
March 07, 2019
Over the years, L.A.-based musician Michael Ciravolo has played guitar with bands like Human Drama and Gene Loves Jezebel. But when it came to his new project, Beauty in Chaos, he had a particular goal in mind — to see if he could conjure in the studio all the sounds and textures he’d been hearing in his head.

BEAUTY IN CHAOS UNVEILS NEW VIDEO ‘LOOK UP’ FEAT. TISH CIRAVOLO AND GRAMMY NOMINEE MICHAEL ROZON

First Look: Beauty in Chaos ft. Tish Ciravolo – Look Up
November 15, 2018
‘Look Up’ continues the sonically diverse guitar work that B.I.C. founder Michael Ciravolo is already well known for, but the addition of Tish’s voice gives a silky overtone to the gritty guitar driven track that, in a way, gives it a sonically ‘Ying/Yang’ type of vibe that adds to an avant-garde feel that I like to call ‘sheer originality’.
Artist Spotlight: MICHAEL CIRAVOLO
Over a year ago, Michael got the urge to create something for himself and record a new guitar album, “Finding Beauty In Chaos.” This album is not your run of the mill shedder/wank fest album but rather a soundscape of multi layered guitar album using nothing but guitar effects, real drums and bass. We sat down with Michael Ciravolo to talk with him about the birth and creation of Beauty in Chaos.

September 28, 2018
The debut release ‘Finding Beauty In Chaos’ by Michael Ciravolo’s Beauty In Chaos is nothing short of a carefully curated masterpiece that brings some of the best musical elements of the past forward to today and beyond. When I first learned of this new project it really excited me to know that this dream convergence would include many of my all time favorite musicians.

Upon listening to the 14 tracks on the album, it was a delight to discover such diversity between them, clearly the outcome of some great head-to-head writing between Ciravolo and his various collaborators. Here we find offerings covering indie rock and post-punk to dark wave and hard rock. ‘Man of Faith’ itself is an epic track that any lover of these genres must hear, with a sound that is as sweet as any Mission or Cure track.

Personally it feels as if someone has snuck in to my house, rummaged through my vinyl collection to see what I like and brought a large selection of those bands and artists together to make an album just for me. They even put everything back in the right place afterwards.
