Now Hear This: Logan Larson & Logarhythmic Collective | The Monster You Made

The ambitious new music trio unveil their self-described genre Bass Complexity.


Dr. Logan Larson & Logarhythmic Collective gene-splice classical music and EDM into a fearsome new sonic hybrid with their adventurous album The Monster You Made — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Larson and Logarhythmic are a new music ensemble that brings a raw, loud, and unapologetic approach. Their signature sound is a combination of “traditional” classical music idioms and the visceral synths and drums of electronic dance music. This new genre was created by Larson and is entitled Bass Complexity. The build and release of tension is a primary source of inspiration behind the creation of these playful melodies and hypnotic rhythms. Larson’s instrumental works are known for the incorporation of classical music elements with more contemporary music techniques found in genres such as EDM, hip-hop and rap.

The Monster You Made has songs ranging from the core trio of voice (Larson), saxophone (Benjamin Morris) and trombone (Thomas McKee) to featured guest soloists, chamber groups, and large ensembles. Guest artists include the University of Kansas Symphonic Band, Mississippi State University Percussion Ensemble, Frye Music Duo, Kyle Pearl, Philip Beatty, Joseph Pazanowski, Wesley Frye and Daniel Echazabal.

Larson is an award-winning classical music composer, vocalist, producer, and educator who resides in Minneapolis. He received his DMA in Composition at the University of Miami (’21), MM in Composition at the University of Kansas (’18), and BA in Music at Luther College (’16). He primarily studied composition with Brooke Joyce, Forrest Pierce, Dorothy Hindman and Lansing McLoskey, but also studied with George Lewis, Melinda Wagner, Christopher Theofanidis, and Tania León during their Distinguished Composer in Residencies at the University of Miami. He has recently taught as a lecturer at Mississippi State University.

Larson is a professional composer with a specialization in choral music and art song. Performances of his works have been premiered by Grammy-nominated string quintet Sybarite5, Donald Sinta Quartet, Duo Sequenza, University of Kansas Symphonic Band, and various other high-level musicians and ensembles. His music has been performed from Toronto to Trieste to Queensland. Larson has received grants from the Mellon Foundation for a commission for Duo Sequenza. He is a finalist for the American Prize in Composition in the Band Division. He was awarded second place in the 2019 Civitasolis Composition Competition for The Devil Is Out To Play for reed quintet, and runner-up in the Donald Sinta Quartet 2016 National Composition Competition with Ideal Unbalanced Perfection for saxophone quartet.
