Steven Litt is a recent graduate of the Interactive Telecommunications Program of NYU, where he spent two years designing and building. He is the creator of CrudBox, a robotic rhythm machine that controls electronic or electromechanical devices, amplifying their sounds in real time. His work mixes the raw, abrasive sounds of noise and
electroacoustic music with the rhythms of electronic dance music. He is an artist, designer, and musician. As a result, he lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Lori Napoleon is an interdisciplinary artist and performer who is interested in creating immersive environments inspired by the physics of sound and light. Her background in the hybrid art and science of holography fuels her continued explorations in process and material, and the limitless creative potential intrinsic in challenging our assumptions about everyday objects. As an artistexperimenter, her motivations lie in curiosity, and the desire to create experiences that didn't exist before, by way of making one's own tools, or breaking the ones they already have.
And Um Yeah
And Um Yeah conjures a noisy electropsychedelic swell and turns it into a song. Using handmade instruments, custom software, and creatively modified electronics, they will attempt to lure you in a world of fun and fear that you can only see by closing your eyes and pressing on your eyeballs. And um... yeah.
Jeremiah Johnson is an electronic musician and computer artist currently enrolled in the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. His work is focused primarily on the use of repurposed lowbit electronics for creative expression in an ongoing effort to leverage their limitations. In 1999 he cofounded 8bitpeoples, a collective of artists interested in the audiovisual aesthetics of early home computers and video game consoles, and has since released a number of recordings under the name Nullsleep through 8bitpeoples, Astralwerks, Aniplex and others. Based in New York City, Johnson has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including the 20date International Chiptune Resistance world tour in 2006.
