Synths For Lunch (Nik Batt Live Set and Rig Rundown)

batt 2

I’ve been following sonicstate.com for a couple/few years now. Nick Batt does some of the best coverage of up and coming instruments and technology in the world of synthesizers and other studio gear. His coverage is thorough and even with the more technical stuff, he makes it make sense to follow somehow. It’s nice to see this short set from him for a change, where he doesn’t have to talk about what’s happening. Moody, heartfelt a well arranged set!

Here’s a breakdown of the rig here:

Alphastare (experimental sound/video)

I used to make these little videos to accompany some of my music more frequently. This is the first one I’ve done in over a year, shot mostly on BART in SF and Berkeley, enjoy!

Alphastare (live at All Tomorrow’s Afterparties 2016)

“Blessings of the Masses…thou art is subject of the divine…created in the image of man, by the masses…for the masses. Let us be thankful we have an occupation to fill. Work Hard, increase production, prevent accidents and….be happy.”


Following is a collage of clips from Sunday’s early acts. Within are sounds by Will Alexander (solo piano), Denney Joints who did a nice tribute to X and is the only person I’ve heard cover Einsturzende Neubauten. Also a few clips from Zbug who put down a great set of frenetic free jazz vibes with an experimental/industrial element…enjoy this eclectic mix by this representation of Bay Area artists of a wide variety!

EAR SPRAY (ATAP day 2)

I didn’t get to attend days one or two of the event but Ann O’Rourke has uploaded Ear Spray’s set from Saturday 6_4_16 featuring her mind blowing projection work.
