Whether it's recording samples in isolated tunnels, cutting up found sounds on an MPC, programming analog synths, or layering unorthodox guitar and drum sounds, Sonmi creates sounds that are sure to open the imagination of any audience. The enigmatic band has entertained audiences at regional festivals such as Trinumeral, Bele Chere, LAAFF, and Tron-A-Thon, and has shared the stage with Bonobo, Pnuma Trio, Glitch Mob, BlueTech, Two Fresh, Emancipator, and Papadosio. By performing indulgently rhythmic collages of sound with virtually no pre-sequence, their virtuosic performance of multiple sound layers creates a much sought-after human edge to the live electronic genre.

Deaf Scene is an experimental band based in Baltimore, Maryland. As an instrumental drum-bass-guitar trio, the band pulls off an incredibly vast range of sounds, pushing the sonic boundaries of each instrument and effect that they use. In their four year existence, the band has cultivated a unique musical style, influenced by everything from The Beatles to Battles and beyond; yet their music still defies any sort of traditional "jam-band", "post-rock", or "electronic" categorization.
Onstage, Deaf Scene's raw energy and eerie psychedelia draw you into their one-of-a-kind live performance. Lush guitar melodies, ethereal loops, intricate bass harmonies, and propulsive drum rhythms are the cornerstones of Deaf Scene's music, both live and in the studio. In 2010, the band self-released their debut EP, a cohesive movement of music that showcases the powerful potential of Deaf Scene's brand of loop-infused rock experimentation.
