Schizophonic is an experimental project that brings together many different styles and genres in an electronic environment that is painstakingly created and maintained at each performance. The band comprises of three musicians, all networked together and sharing material wirelessly, capturing sounds from the moment and introducing them into their own compositions in real time.
The humans in the band have had experience playing a plethora of musical styles and their material reflects the influences of all that has gone by. From deep, dark dub delays and hip-hop turntablism to jazz piano and blues guitar licks off crackling LP's, all human-generated sound is fed into an electronic hive-mind that behaves intuitively and dramatically; in essence, a fourth member of the band that can only be given suggestions but never entirely controlled.
Schizophonic performances are unpredictable. The band works with a variety of people ranging from visual artists and designers to dancers and musicians. The experience is customised to best suit each venue/gig and no two concerts are the same.
