Comaduster is the solo electronic project of the Canadian musician and sound designer, Réal Cardinal. Staring from a young age as a drummer, Cardinal quickly turned to writing his own compositions with computers and a modest assortment of gear. In 2008 Cardinal took a postition at BioWare Edmonton as a game sound designer on the Mass Effect and Dragon Age Franchises. In 2009 Cardinal self-released the debut Comaduster album / EP ‘Slip Through’ for donation only. The album was a group of selected tracks from a period between 2002 and 2007 which were then re-mixed and reworked to fit the album as a whole. The track ‘Foam Abattoir’ was feature on Dependent Records ‘Septic IX’ compilation in 2010.
In 2011, after contributing a remix to Architect's 'Upload Select Remix' release on Hymen Records, Cardinal took the Comaduster audio visual composition ‘Scrape’ to the stage at MUTEK 2011. ‘Scrape’ fused a glitchy dark-ambient soundscape with hi-definition macro videography on a large screen.
In 2013, the digital single 'Winter Eyes' and the full-length album 'Hollow Worlds' were both released on the U.S. electronic music label Tympanik Audio.
