Distant Early Message

Geronimo Saenz announced Sunday evening that he had to undergo two more surgical procedrues (due to a throat injury) on top of having dental surgery, and said he is already feeling much better. "I know some people are probably wondering if my nephew Alex and I are ever going to finish this album and get out and play. But this problem was effecting my singing and my entire well being. I couldn't ignore it any longer. Gery also expressed concern that so many things had come up in the last three months, preventing him and his nephew from completing their project. "But we will do this and it will be worth the wait. I guarantee it."

The health challanges that both Alex and Gery have faced recently are non related. Alex is undergoing occupational therapy for his severe muscle and nerve damage in his left hand and arm, while Gery is seeing a group of specialist for his throat and gout condition. "We're trying to take care of ourselves now so we can give our listeners and friends our very best when we do get back in the studio and start perfroming live. " Explains Gery. "Our plans are to start performing in the Tri-Cities, WA, and cover a large portion of the westcoast area by the Fall. I expect to be in Tri Cities soon after I get the green light from my doctors. We have much work to do and auditions to get through. We are determined to out do ourselves and we will. Thank you all for being so patient!"

About The Hutchison Effect
The Hutchison Effect started as a two-man project, Geronimo Saenz and nephew, Alex Saenz. The duo began writing and recording original songs as a private hobby during their teen years.
By that time, the two aspiring songwriters had already been exposed to a lot of avant-garde music, which included psychedelic, fusion, hard rock, folk, classical and world music.

After a few years of collaborating on several concepts while working under the name of The Mystic Assignment, Alex and Geronimo decided to attempt to form a band around songs and concepts that they had been creating. Enter The Hutchison Effect.

Named after physicist John K. Hutchison, the line up was completed in 2007 with the addition of friend and keyboard extraordinaire, William Matthews …

The Hutchison Effect’s sound, style and approach is lush, elegant, and heavily eclectic. The objective is to create artistic statements that offer meaning, though not necessarily define any one thing.

Rather than imitating or becoming a tame, bloated parody of what is currently mainstream music, the band has elected to journey between seemingly eluding melodies and mystic rhythms that transcend within a vast ocean of ethereal sounds.

“Remnants” is a good example of the band’s experience, perseverance and finely honed blend of mood and melody. This fine mix of artists emerges with clarity and grace…

April 9,2007
Question from Victoria Mayfield of Buffalo, NY: Hi, I heard your interview the other day and liked how you described your guys’ song writing approach. I am a musician interested in learning how to compose eclectic music rather than just traditional Jazz music. I’ve been playing piano, guitar and alto sax for 16 years now and know my music theory. You guys obviously have a wide range of influences, and I wanted to ask you how you feel about jamming with other people, if that helps your creative juices flow. Is there an advantage to impovising over having structure for you? Also, Who and what do you like to jam with the most, blues players, jazz players, rockers, acoustic guitars, keyboards?

Answer from Alex:

Although we love to experiment a lot and approach music in a free flowing manner, having structure is very important if you ever plan on writing something that is digestible on a musical level. Substance without a container in which to carry it in is just messy.

One should never mistake improvisation with mindless jamming. I like to play with someone who can cover a lot of ground regardless of genre, and someone with whom you can discuss the language at a reasonable level; otherwise it gets kind of frustrating. I'm not really interested in sitting down and doing some "jamming" - that just sounds moronic. I’m referring to playing over two chords or a 12 bar blues progression for like an hour or more, and never arriving to a specific plateau.

We are more interested in working out interesting harmonic and poly-rhythmic stuff and seeing how you can for example, make two acoustic guitars increase in size by the way you use the qualities of the guitars and other instruments – like open strings and stuff like that. Currently we are also experimenting a lot with keyboards and electronic sounds. So sometimes we prefer to use a different “brush” with maybe more viridian hue and less crimson.

I think the fact that we learned to play by ear and the fact that we listened to many, many different styles of music over the years has a lot to do with how we do things. I can’t tell you how to go about it, only what we’ve done and do. I think its’ a major plus if you are schooled and use music theory to help your creative process. But our songs are more like paintings in a way – each one always starts with a sort of a pencil sketch, then it gets to another stage and it may have completely changed by the end, but it's a slow metamorphosis until it gets "ripe” I don’t know how else to explain it. You have to balance the creative and the technical side of music or it just wont be as expressive or as interesting as it should be.

March 11,2007

Question from James Lucas of Twin Falls, Id: Why do you seem to have so much trouble with finding a singer or singers for you band, why not just keep singing yourselves?

Answer from Gery: I don't know, I guess we just never came across a vocalist who could and who would compliment the music and lyrics we put together. This is why Alex and I do in fact keep singing the parts I originally had intended for someone else to sing. Nothing against any of the singers we've worked with in the past, its just cut and dry you know? Your voice either works for this or it doesn't. I really hate the sound of my own voice, but I can at least carry the melody I hear in my head when we're composing the music and lryics. Unfortunatley for us, the chances of meeting a good vocalist who hears the same things we do are billion to one!

February 24,2007

Question from Christopher Wilcox of Richmond, VA:Yeah, this question is for Will the keyboard player- what kind of keyboards do you play and do you guys all share the same philosophy and background as a group? Also, do you see yourself as an integral part of the band?

Answer from William: I use the Roland Fantom X8 as my main board right now and a few older boards like the yamahas and what not. But I create my own sounds and tweek them in many different ways rather than just using factory presets. That is another aspect of making my own sound. As far as philosophies and backgrounds, we're different in some respects and yet we share the same goals and ideas as artists. Its very important to have the chemsitry that we found between us, because if any one of us just wanted to make it big or make music for the money or for attention, then it would never work. What attracted me to The Hutchison Effect was its timeless vibe and Zen like quality. This is music I can see myself listening to 20 years from now, why not be a part of its creation?

January 18,2007

Question from Gloria Torelo of Pasco, WA: How did you come up with this name (The Hutchison Effect)?

Answer from Alex: We named this project after a collection of unknown phenomena discovered by Physicist, John K. Hutchison over 20 years ago. We saw a correlation between what Mr. Hutchison does and what we do. It is a possibility that what occurs when we work together as a group of artists and what occurs when people listen to music with emotional content, is in a sense a “Hutchison Effect” ....Things that defy categories and definitions. I hope this makes sense.

whats up????? Where have ya been? Me? been working like crazy. I have already requested a day off for the RUSH concert! You goin? BTW I got a guy here who wants to go up there to your studio to record two full CDs. Let me know as soon as you're opening so I can tell him! Holla back hombre! :)


Jul 15 2007 11:13A

If you're looking for a pro singer for your other band, I would not settle for anything less than the best. Martin is the best. I'm telling you he can belt it out with a lot of feel. He's got a 5 ocatave range to compliment your guitar playing. He's 6"1 and cut like Roy Jones jr.-THE GUY LOOKS AND BEHAVES LIKE A PRO-a great attitude. He's been singing since he was 9 has had music training and is 24 years old. I showed him your instrumental rock stuff and he loved it. He started singing lyrics to it! You have to try him out. No Emo and none of the ego. You will be impressed Alex.

We have been in touch with some agents in NY. We have made some deals, and have some great interviews setup for the live show. We'll see you soon, Alex.

Thanks for everything


Jun 22 2007 5:45P

Hey I think its cool that you and your uncle are finally going to put your band together!

I think I know why it takes you so long to form a band. :-)

You guys should record the whole Cd on your own or with whomever you already have in your roster now, and then hire the right guys to tour with.Are you guys still auditioning?

Inquiring minds wanna know whats going on guys!!!!!

Luv, La Mona

I had a dream that yogurt was made from biomolecular, solar powered, juice makers.

Everyone was wearing elfen prada, and hedgehogs took the innocence of every new born by making them watch 20/20.

Is that strange??

May 31 2007 12:49P

Dude, I told you every now and then you will have some jelaous people person to talk about your personal life and attack you so to make you look bad or whatever and screw with your biz plans! hey, they shoulod be greatful that you are taking YOUR time and YOUR talent to help them! You could be writing and doing things for your own band or movie instead of helping them! I went through that with Dwayne last year and I've since then cut that guy off for good. But you just stick to doing what you do best and you will get results!

I loved your "confessions" You defined what your indie label is all about. Good Job! I hope you get more rock bands from Austrailia interested in your services and not just people who want to buy beats and samples from you guys! thats cool too and its good money, but I know there are a lot of great bands over there who are unsigned! And don't forgte to sign yourself! LOL! :) Hey, is Gery fianlly here?????
Let me know!
Love, Gloria

May 25 2007 3:08P

I think having women dancing in front of as new BMW is fine and all. As most cultures can't see that sort of thing on TV. I can see how it would be atractive to some men, and women! lol

As for me. I'd rather see women doing what is more common. Walking up and down a shopping mail, talking on a cell phone, and spending a credit card all at the same time. Multi-tasking in it truest form! haha

I just want some truth to my media sex apeal. Is that so much to ask? hehe
