||History of a Vision|
young monkey began in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1984 as the creative endeavour of a single young man, known by most people as
dhomas. It got its first great push ahead as the result of a teacher's organization of the students in her classroom.
This spurred a new friendship between two people now sitting next to each other who probably would never have met otherwise. A common interest in song
writing and synthesizers sparked their first conversation. This was only the beginning.
Their first two musical collaborations have never been heard by anyone but themselves and a few friends. Their third collaboration, however, entitled sus salvanius (Latin: "Pygmy Boar") unanimously won First Place in CHSR-FM's Basement Band Contest in 1987 and was an instant hit on the local campus/community radio station. Late in 1994, this collaboration even managed to put another song, the world the body the grave, onto a Global Chart in the UK.
But, young monkey is not just about music. Over the years, young monkey has collaborated with people from all walks of life,
including: artists, technologists and scientists - working and consulting on projects in sound, music, film, video, graphic design, writing, computer
technology and performance (to name just a few). In 1995, young monkey's explorations in the areas of graphic design and publication, manifested
itself as two new divisions (design and publications) under the name of simian press.
One thing holds it all together... young monkey is a birthplace for new ideas and the realization of dreams.
