Aurganic is an experimental electronic/alternative project of two
long-time friends Mike and Leo. Originally high school classmates, they
were members in a number of local punk rock bands until life separated
them for a number of years. As the time passed the tastes had changed.
They reconnected musically in 2010 finding a lot of common ground. This
time it was electronica, art rock and jazz that dominated the ideas
flowing from them. Without further ado, the duo recorded instrumental
sessions in a format of a self-titled EP, discovering how well they
complimented each other with Leo’s strong production skills and Mike’s
compositional ideas.

Taking the project to the next level, Aurganic released a self-produced
full-length album entitled “Life as a Canvas” in March of 2012. The
album included multiple vocal and instrumental guest appearances from
local Toronto artists. As a result, the new material emphasized the
introduction of song writing to the duo’s sound. “Life as a Canvas”
was well received by the public, praising the clever mix of live and
electronic instruments, as well as pristine technical execution.

Riding the creative wave, Aurganic got back into the studio to record a
full length follow up "Deviations" featuring the familiar collaborators.
The album material puts a strong emphasis on songwriting and vocal
oriented ideas but does not lose the signature layered production and rich
instrumentation. "Deviations" is to be released on September 24th, 2013.
