David Peck is a hybrid entity, striking a balance between synthetic electronics & organic recordings, composition & improvisation, and musicality & sound design. Not referencing any one specific genre or influence, David Peck carves out his own corner in the realm of atmospheric electronic music. Emotive, but still groovy. Thoughtful, but with bounce. Ethereal tones meeting earthy textures.
Soundkraft is an Electronic/Techno band that started in 1996 with two brothers, Mike and Steve. In the vain of the greats like Kraftwerk, Soundkraft is pushing the electronic music genre in new and exciting directions.
Faux Pas Quartet
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.
