92433-Press_Photo_2Qualia was formed in 2014 by Michael Hazani as a musical refuge from his daytime gig as a freelance songwriter/producer for hire. The band’s debut, “This Is the Color of My Dreams”, was released in 2014 and quickly garnered online buzz for its uncompromising lyricism and musicality, as well as the immersive, interactive 3d songscapes that accompanied the singles. In the same year Qualia (in band formation) toured the East Coast, broadened its reach and won the John Lennon Innovators In Music Competition, which led to a special performance at Berklee College of Music (of which all band members are alumni).

Qualia’s upcoming EP, “Triptych”, takes on a more organic approach while staying faithful to the integrity, imagination and drama of the band’s previous music; now located in Seattle, Hazani plays Qualia shows utilizing a solo electronic setup and plans to tour the West Coast throughout 2015.
