ALBINO GHOST MONKEY
What is an Albino Ghost Monkey you ask? The Albino Ghost Monkey is a strange and unique creature that can only be found in the Northwoods region of Wisconsin. The Albino Ghost Monkey spends most of its time using a tool known as "Nanoloop", though nanoloop is not a good tool for hunting (reassuring its short lifespan), it is on the other hand a great tool for creating music. So with spring upon us, the Albino Ghost Monkey comes out of hibernation to share the splendor of his nanoloop endeavours.
Brought together by their love of simple melodies, 16mm films, cartoon doodles, classical and folk instruments, and experimental pop music, Baln was formed in 2002 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 2006 the band released their first album âSomething Comes Our Wayâ (Brilliante Records) after years of self-releasing CD-Rs and MP3-EPs on different labels. The bandâs first album received critical acclaim from various media outlets such as Allmusic.com, Textura, The Big Take Over, The Tripwire, and Flavorpill. Since then, the group has released new songs and remixes on different compilations appearing with artists from all over the world such as B. Fleischmann, Lullatone, Fax, Montag, I Am Robot and Proud, among others. The band moved to the United States in 2006 and has performed on venues around the country and festivals/parties such as Decibel Fest, Pop Montreal, 8STATIC and FMEL 2009. They have also collaborated with illustrator Tatiana Arocha on a short film for the DVD series PSST! and with Puerto Rican experimental theater company Y No Haba Luz. Their new mini-album Memoria Textil was released in February 2010 as a free digital download and the group is currently working on their 2nd full length which will be released by the Brazilian collective Si No Puedo Bailar.
8bit bEtty is back! You might have seen him playing a Pulsewave in 2008, or even at a Long Island backyard on a hot Summer day - wherever it was, you know you didn't stop dancing. 8bit bEtty is Bryan Teoh, a composer, instrumentalist, sound designer, and new media artist. With a conservatory background in classical and jazz performance/composition, Bryan has worked in several professional musical and new media environments. Instrumental performances often employ his 17 years of training on guitar as well as his unique approach to live use of the laptop. Bryan uses max/msp to create the software for his electronic and electro-acoustic work, and in recent years has fostered an interest in software design for video processing and performance via jitter. Bryan currently resides in Brooklyn NY where he continues to freelance for various projects and pursue personal ventures in new media.
