Two years ago, two friends affirmed their impressive wits and winning personalities with a powerful explosion of smacking hands, henceforth known as a “high-five,” and referred to in human history books as “the shot heard round the world.” The resulting sonic boom unleashed a very dangerous robot: the Marauder Octobot. Zach Lapidus and Jesse Wittman, who used a fearsome combination of SuperCollider, PureData, live instrumentation, and their dashing good looks, were long able to keep this deadly beast contained with the power of sweet, sweet music. After two years of epic performances in venues such as “The Earth House,” “Rachel’s Cafe,” “the Indie Indy Art Gallery,” and “Zach’s Basement,” Jesse was banished to the ice prison known as “Alaska,” thus threatening the future of humanity. Thankfully, Jesse’s departure was followed by the entry of percussionist Ben Lumsdaine, popularly hailed as “the Hieronymus Bosch of the Drum Set,” who joined with keyboardist and laptop-ist Zach to engage the Octobot in sonic battle, for the amusement of all concert-goers and music-lovers.
