Surrealestate

Surrealestate is a musical experience that utilizes visual and sonic textures reminiscent of the Old Berlin style of electronic synth music. Surrealestate was formed five years ago with original members Kelly Sheets, Bunny Sheets, and Randy Schwartz. After Randy’s departure, long time friend and associate Jim Curry has contributed his musical creativity to Surrealestate. Surrealestate evolved from Kelly and Bunny’s collective band experiences which included Gravity Hill and Interstellar Electric Gnomes. Jim Curry has been involved in multiple genres and played with bands with tastes ranging from Grateful Dead, Psychodellia, Blues, and Bluegrass. Former band member, Randy Schwartz, contributed his experiences from Tombstone Valentine and added his own unique style through synths, delays, and violin.
Currently Surrealestate enjoys playing Old School Berlin using restored Moog vintage synths and other vintage equipment collected over the years. When required, styles include upbeat techno, psychill, ambient, and trance. Lighting and stage props are occasionally utilized to add to the experience.
For Meme 2014, Surrealestate is planning an all analog show of new and old material.

remst8

remst8 is an experimental computer musician who explores sounds in whatever spare time he can steal. This on-again/off-again affair began in the early ’90s, using tracker programs on his Amiga 500 and later a PC to create soundtracks for his friends’ creations (computer games and an independent film).  Following a 7 year hiatus to focus on his software engineering career, remst8 returned to tracking music for fun and creative exploration.
Rather than aiming for a particular genre, remst8 prefers to follow the sounds where they take him, informed and inspired by the eclectic styles of music he listens to.  Recently, remst8’s explorations have focused on deep drone and dark ambient tracks with a smattering of noise and experimentation.

When a computer is employed it is used mainly as a mixer and a reverb machine. Half prepared motifs and half improvisation Paul spins sounds into live looped sound paintings of the moment.
