King Britt x DataGarden [release & show]
Last year, I went to an amazing festival in Philadelphia’s Bartram Gardens, called Switched on Garden. This festival took the idea of exploring the relationship between plants, music and technology, to a whole new level. It was the perfect environment for kids and adults who have a curious heart and a love for fun electronic instruments.
This year I am honored to not only do a live set, but to have a release coming out on October 16. I did the album as a result of dabbling in my love for sound design. I sent this to them, not for them to sign, but I knew that Alex and Joe from DataGarden like this sort of stuff. They liked it so much that they wanted to release it. I love their whole vibe and drive, so I created a few more tunes using Monome and various processing methods. I present you The Bee and The Stamen.
From my press release:
What you are about to hear is from the sonic point of view of a bee within his journey. From searching for the organ that produces pollen, the stamen, to when grains fall and cross pollinate. Its a taste of experimental sound design and imagination.
* note: this is one song out of five from the album
