Escuri has been actively producing and performing experimental music in the Philippines.  He released several EP which include Parallel Worlds (2013), a compilation of avant-garde analog sound works which took inspiration from the literary works of Haruki Murakami and Kobo Abe; Coloring Book (2015), a collection of purely digital audio works; and ORBIT21 (2016), a collaborative sound work with music producers from California, UK, Texas, Netherlands and London.  

His musical works has been featured in local radio stations and publication. His current musical project involves performing electronic music in various settings (public, semi-public and private spaces) in an attempt to explore how these physical spaces contribute to and/or affect sound and performance. In addition, the project also explores how synthetic sounds interact with natural sounds and how this interaction affect the binaural perception of the listeners . Other on-going projects include field recordings with visual artists .

He is part of Pixel Collective, a local group of emerging digital/electronic/analog/lo-fi musicians; and Buwan Buwan Collective, a record label dedicated to unearthing substantial electronic art forms. 

A collaboration Purveyr and adidas Originals.

Around August 2016, they roamed around the streets of Escolta, Philippines and did a soundwalk.

This opportunity paved way in exploring field recordings. In the process, they recorded ambient sounds and collaborated with the locals by asking them to do rhythmic beats using familiar objects (coins, hammer, basketball and even coffee machine!)

Like photography, music also has the power to capture a moment, make it eternal and deliver euphoria and nostalgic memories.


Genre : chillwave, hip-hop, electro-math, contemporary

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
