TheRingmaster is the moniker of the award-winning composer/producer Francis Lorenzo. The Indonesian raised musician is known for having a unique blend of heavily processed dreamy guitar work alongside layered electronic sounding organic beats, all placed under simple structures. Though often placed in the dreampop category, Francis has often insisted on being labeled ‘Alternative’ should there be a need to be categorized.
After dropping the award winning ‘Great Secret Show’ – alongside former band Sleepwalk Circus in 2010, Francis left to dedicate the following years to exploring a much more downtempo side – eventually releasing the critically acclaimed Delusion of Reference in 2013. This has led him to have more unlisted work featured in commercials and different forms of media. Francis has since then played as TheRingmaster in different parts of asia as well as supported various acts such as Toe, The Fin and Explosions in the Sky.
Francis is set to release his sophomore album titled ‘Viletin’ as TheRingmaster this 2018. The album will feature various different artists and is set to showcase a more classic and youthful alternative approach alongside Francis’ signature emotive complex instrumentation.
