You get to The Angry Red Planet by riding a sonic star craft whose destination lies somewhere between nightmares and dreams. Electronic and synthesized soundscapes combined with percussive accents demand the listener to caresses the puzzle box, enter the rabbit hole and say the magic words… Once alighted, the magnetizing pulse of this diverse father and son duo will hold the audience captive in their new home… The Angry Red Planet.

Back in Indy after a 3 week East Coast tour for the dRachEmUsiK and onewayness collaboration “The Sound of Thunder”. dRachEmUsiK is the solo project of award winning electronic musician, instrumentalist, sound designer and producer Charles Shriner. The current sound of dRachEmUsiK has been described as “glitch-groove ambient beats with a strong modal jazz influence mixed with micro-tonal improvisations”. Simple melodies swirling in mixed tempos and undulating textures. Dense, eclectic, erotic, evocative, emotional, spontaneous and sometimes noisy.

SurrealEstate
http://www.surrealestatemusic.com

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

Kelly Sheets on moogs, seuqencing, and other digital synths, vocals.
Bunny Sheets on keyboards, minimoog voyager, vocals.
Jim Curry on synth percussion, guitar, hand drums, various moogs, vocals.

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.

Faux Pas Quartet
http://www.fauxpasquartet.com

Faux Pas Quartet is a free form improvisation ensemble whose sole purpose is the spontaneous expression of the unconscious.

The resulting music, quite literally, comes from the same stuff of which dreams are made. Archetypes of the psyche rising unfettered through the medium of the unconscious and becoming manifest in the shared conscious reality. The music is soothing, agitating, floating, rhythmic, funny, scary, sad, angry, melodic and atonal – aka ‘nerd hop.’

Relax, open up and take the time to flow with the music. Above all, give yourself permission to explore the irrational.
