LAUNCHPAD THIS WEEK

Wednesday, April 24th @ 8pm
Alex Wyatt Group Concert

New York based jazz drummer and composer Alex Wyatt has been busy on the New York music scene in recent years. Since earning a B.F.A. from The New School for Jazz in 2005, Alex has performed live or recorded with jazz artists Kevin Hays, Gilad Hekselman, Jon Irabagon, Yeahwon Shin, Massimo Biolcati, Joe Martin, Greg Ruggiero, Frank Locrasto, Logan Richardson, Nir Felder, and Curtis MacDonald, among others, and with pop artists such as My Cousin, The Emperor, WYATT, Jason Liebman, Lauren Molina, and Blake Whyte.

Alex’s new recording, entitled There's Always Something, is his first album as bandleader and composer. It features nine original compositions, and a sextet of his closest musical colleagues, some of New York’s finest up-and-coming jazz instrumentalists: tenor saxophonist Kyle Wilson, alto and soprano saxophonist Masahiro Yamamoto, pianist Danny Fox, guitarist Greg Ruggiero, and bassist Chris Tordini. All of these gentlemen are recognized performers and composers in their own right.

Pulsewave

Pulsewave started in March 2006 as a way for chip music composers from all over the world to showcase their live music, paired with live visuals, on a monthly basis. Chip music is a kind of music made from archaic hardware, including Nintendo Game Boys, Nintendo Entertainment Systems and Commodore 64s. Pulsewave has been running ever since and has been booked at all-ages DIY venues all over Manhattan and Brooklyn. 

Spring is springing, birds are chirping and booties will be shaking! Come out of the cold and bump da party with us!

♪ CHROMACLE (PHIL) -
Chromacle is a digital art and music project created by Jake Beadenkopf to explore the plane of the digital aesthetic, creating vast computerized video and audio experiences that dance the border between logical data constructs and ocular corruption. Working under the mantra "Beauty from corruption, destruction from chrominance," Chromacle's work deconstructs the digital to its barest form. The product is a glitch-influenced barrage of visual and audiological stimuli that tantalize and torture physiological receptors.

♫ MINUSBABY (NY) -

♪ CREAM IN ALL MOUSTACHE (ES, BARCELONA) -
Cream in all Moustache aka Alexandre is a French boy fascinated by underground culture. After several shows in France and a US TOUR with C’n’B label, CIAM developed his real own style, digging the deepest sounds from his 2.3 cartridge, always trying to push away the boundaries of chiptune.

☼ FUTURESTACK (NY) -
futurestack is a visual artist who likes 1bit, high quality dithering and old technology. Professionaly he does vfx for broadcast and film, and at night he draws and messes with electronics that most people consider garbage. He’s been using pretty much the same computer since 1987.
