In the world of science, Quantum Dots are a recent creation that use semiconductor material that dynamically changes the properties of matter. Taken literally: ‘programmable matter.’ Like their namesake, The Quantum Dots (from Portland, Oregon) dynamically shift moods, creating complex, orchestral compositions that range from subtle ambient soundscapes to crushing thrashfests. Multi-instrumentalist Eric Sterling and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Dean Blair use state of the art synthesizer technology, alternating melodic/heavy guitars, both live and programmed drums, and masterfully-integrated soaring vocals to create these highly cinematic songs. Guests on their debut album, ‘Inventing Reality,’ include Jyri Glynn of The Sins playing electric violin on half of the songs, Chris Gaye on bass for 3 tracks, Ned Wahl (ex-Chemlab, ex-Halo Black) on bass for a number of tracks and Jennifer Pomada (ex-roommate) playing flute on a couple of songs. ———– ‘Hailing from Portland, OR, The Quantum Dots have been compared to everyone from Tool to Dave Gahan, and given the grandiose nature of the music, these comparisons are not unwarranted. However, the sense of musical adventure that the Dots seem to revel in is best displayed on lengthier, more meandering tracks, where band members Eric Sterling and Dean Blair have room to experiment at will. The spacey, almost Floyd-esque ‘System of Belief’ is night-sky listening music, complete with soaring wordless vocals. ‘Serotonin’ clocks in at over twelve minutes, and has a trance-like quality that is saved from monotony by the judicious application of guitar chords and vocal samples. In contrast, the short and sharp track ‘The Auction’ delivers a perfect, tight aggro vocal. Inventing Reality is the debut release by The Quantum Dots, and it showcased a level of musical sophistication and inventiveness that is not often found in virgin offerings. I’ll definitely be watching The Quantum Dots to see what they invent next.’ — Steph Quinlan, StarVox Music Zine (April 2004)

Inventing Reality is the debut album of Quantum Dots, or Dean Blair and Eric Starling .. on them I don’t know anything, I only know that someone has compared them to Tool and Dave Gahan, who on this record participate numerous guests (such as violinist of Sins Jiry Glinn, the former Chemlab and Halo BlackNed Wahl and many others ..), which comes out for SINister Records and who want to create something special and experimental .. let’s say that they put a lot of meat on the fire and an 80-minute debut if it is not a masterpiece it is difficult to digest it .. new wave, industrial, ambient, psychedelia, electronics .. a lot of things .. we go from Depeche Mode to Legendary Pink Dots, from Nine Inch Nails to Japan, from Throbbing Gristle to In the Nursery .. and then odd times, subliminal noises , infinite soundscapes, 80’s pop distorted and deformed at will .. Quantum Dots do a nice job, they have nice ideas, but as I said before there is too much meat on the fire and little roast ..the music of the Quantum Dots in its desire to escape some cataloging becomes at times boring and unbearable thus ruining how good they manage to create .. often too long and watered down songs ruin many beautiful songs .. in short, the ideas are there, the qualities also but there is also work on the form, on being able to give a shape, however abstract, understandable to the listeners .. this record is from 2003 (with songs composed in 2001), probably something new will come out soon and I hope so much that in these years the Portland duo has managed to channel all their ideas into something more concrete and listenable .. and that it is not another 80-minute album!in short, the ideas are there, the qualities also but there is also work to be done on the form, on being able to give a shape, however abstract, understandable to the listeners .. this record is from 2003 (with songs composed in 2001), probably soon something new will come out and I hope so much that in recent years the Portland duo has managed to channel all their ideas into something more concrete and listenable .. and that it is not another 80-minute album!in short, the ideas are there, the qualities also but there is also work to be done on the form, on being able to give a shape, however abstract, understandable to the listeners .. this record is from 2003 (with songs composed in 2001), probably soon something new will come out and I hope so much that in recent years the Portland duo has managed to channel all their ideas into something more concrete and listenable .. and that it is not another 80-minute album!probably something new will come out soon and I hope so much that in recent years the Portland duo has managed to channel all their ideas into something more concrete and listenable .. and that it is not another 80 minute album!probably something new will come out soon and I hope so much that in recent years the Portland duo has managed to channel all their ideas into something more concrete and listenable .. and that it is not another 80 minute album!
