Psychoacoustic Vision is Citizen Staefn from Melbourne, Australia. At the beginning of his production life Staefn started producing deep ambient sounds until he discovered prog & psy in early 2007 at his first Rainbow Serpent party. Ever since this party he has been producing his own interpretations of these styles. PAV focus's on dark, deep and progressive sounds which have been inspired by his dreams and life.
The alter ego 'Caustic Conception', experiments with the harder styles of psy. Taking what is learnt from deep prog and turning it into deep pounding basslines and deadly acid hooks. Intelligent rhythms and tight production make him stand out from the crowd.
Staefn has been playing his versatile liveset sporadically over the last 4 years at Victorian parties. Supporting international artists Liquid Soul, Chicago, John ‘00 Fleming, QUANTIZE at parties like Festivus, Big:Red:Bus, Colour of Sound, Interview, Doesn’t Matter, Strawberry Fields, Slice Nexus and more recently at the newly started up label Universal Tribe- whose recent donation parties have set new levels for what Victorian residents expect from parties.
PAV’s first EP release in 2012 on Highly Evolved Records exceeded expectations and held strongly in the top 5 releases of Prog/Psy for 2 weeks straight; helping to get his name out even further internationally. Big things are expected for PAV in 2014 with his second EP being released as well as many singles coming out on Silent Partner, Universal Tribe and Highly Evolved Records.
