What is Haptic Synapses?
We’re a group of electronic musicians and artists based in the heart of Silicon Valley who get together and improvise long sets of music and visuals. Preparation is minimal, so what you see and hear is a realtime expression of our collective aesthetic. Our style bridges between techno and house. We like swing, abstract polyrhythms, generative algorithms, and patterns. We are musicians, engineers, builders, makers, technicians. This is how we hear the heartbeat of silicon valley.
