Yo, it’s Steve here. After reviewing my soundcloud page, I realized that I have ended up with 80 tracks posted that I recorded while playing on my hardware setup as it’s evolved over the past year. I posted it as an album on Bandcamp, so check it out!
Thanks very much to Peff (!!), Mr. Kurt Kurasaki for recording our performance at Binary Society 07!
ok, so squad, here’s one of our goals for next year: Let’s get some traction on this page:
Another fun show, this time in Santa Cruz at the Museum of Art and History for their event titled “GLOW: A Festival of Fire and Light”. And I just want to say how incredibly impressed I am with the organizational power this group has. I’ve never been treated so well, fed so well, and helped so much with setup and teardown. Truly an incredible team of staff and volunteers they have there. I want to thank them so much for the invitation to play, we had a great time!
We played on the Gore Park stage! But we also hosted the stage, and we were too busy all night long to have enough time to get the recording equipment running. Oh well.
Here we are playing with the Cooperative Gaming Co-op at Works/San Jose, on September 28th, 2012. I accidentally shot kind of a lot of footage before we started playing, so I’m hoping the embedded video will start at the time I want it to.
Last friday night, we played at 1015 Folsom, opening for Joey Beltram. It was pretty friggen’ out of control if I do say so myself. MJ Gamez got some really awesome photos of the event… here’s a great one of us playing:
So, that leads me to remind you that we’re headlining at South First Billiards during South First Friday, June 4th 2010. We’ll be playing from 12:00am to 1:30am, and there are a bunch of great musicians and crazy-awesome artists doing their thing as well. Outside of the billiards place is the SubZER0 festival, which is something you just have to see to believe. There’s going to be a whole gangload of interesting art+technology exhibits for you to see, experience, and interact with, so come check it out!

Subject: [DEF] BSP: 1.29.10 Radio Integrated Live from the Bliss Factory with Haptic Synapses & Alixr
Those who have been following the Radio integrated broadcasts over the
last couple of years will know every broadcast is an informal party full
of surprises, torrents of free flowing beer, Chinese take out, new
friends and of course… some of the best techno talent the Bay Area has
This broadcast will be no exception to the rule as we continue onward
into the new year with:
HAPTIC SYNAPSES. Haptic Synapses is a recently formed crew of some of
the leading players from the Dobox label out of San Jose, the Rhythmist,
Steve Cooley, and Qorser. Each member brings their own personality to
the table, with tech represented by Cooley, funk realized by The
Rhythmist, and deep soul as touched upon by Qorser. They each have come
together to jam out in the form of a live P.A. on a combination of self
made software & hardware to give real meaning to words techno soul in a
style that is both truly original and west coast..
ALIXR. Techno machine? Scene fixture? or maybe a closeted ‘enfant
savage’ with a temperate demeanor.. however you peg Alex, he’s always
down like Charlie Brown to show you that there’s a big heart behind the
music he plays. Alixr’s love of techno is what shows through every time
he plays out it is what drives a deep connection between him and his
audience of growing supporters throughout the bay.
