LoveTech: Live Electronic Music Performances in the Aquarium:
6pm: Preshish Moments
Preshish Moments delivers deliciously bassy synths, seismic beats, and enlivened rhymes with an instrument he built from wood, crossfaders, and buttons from old submarines. He makes music, builds electronics, sews light suits, and writes computer programs for himself and other musicians. Performing a special ambient groove set for the CA Academy Aquarium!
Colfax will swoon you into your subconscious with his musical mastery. This virtuosic sound sorcerer stirs analog electronics expressively alive. Unearthing styles and musical sentiments long forgotten, Colfax is interested in the soul embedded in the tape, the mystery in the circuitry, the ghost in the machine.
A calm and collected musical genius, effortlessly melding genres from ambient drum’n’bass to downtempo IDM, Nonagon will linger longingly in your subconscious, with gentle and gorgeous productions that surge and flow. His intricate melodic beatscapes are both stirring and alive, as he recreates them seamlessly with his glowing Monome.
