Skytree, aka Evan Snyder, started recording music at the age of 15, after the loan of a beaten Tascam tape recorder cracked open the world of multi-track production. Rough mix tapes followed, looping degraded swatches of guitar, field recordings and keys over cheap drum machines. After 3 years of tape manipulation, several friends finally convinced Evan to step into computer-based production, while maintaining a deep connection to external, analog sound.
The Skytree name initially found its way onto mixes via subconscious accident, suggesting a sound both ancient and visionary, rooted in the Earth and branching into the cosmos.
Reaching further outwards after four albums and two EPs, “Crystal Consciousness” debuted on November 11th, 2011. Its bass-driven melodies and dub-style rhythms led to pulling up roots in the woods of Wisconsin and embarking on a national tour for virtually all of 2012.
The result was 144 live shows, including several high-profile festival appearances, and the release of the “Sacred Singularity” EP on October 11th, as well as “Treemixes V1” on December 12th via Gravitas Recordings, featuring remixes from 19 producers and artwork from 18 visionary artists. A new, highly collaborative album geared towards the live experience is currently in production for 2013.
Sam Eckstein aka Esseks is a Brooklyn based producer and artist that creates emotionally driven electronic music and art. He also plays guitar and produces for the band Technicolor Lenses. While Sam has been recording music for 8 years, he only began experimenting with electronic music 3 years ago after being exposed to the massive sounds and extreme level of control made possible by electronic mediums. This musical awakening prompted him to start Technicolor Lenses with Jackson Whalan in 2011. Since the release of his first solo effort “Hair and Nails” in April 2012, Esseks has shared the stage with range of artists including Ott and the All Seeing I, An-Ten-Nae, Dynasty Electric, D.V.S.*, Srikalogy, LowRIDERZ, Govinda and Mike Greenfield of Lotus. His music is influenced by a variety of styles from J Dilla inspired hip hop beats to bass fueled dubstep to house and even blues and swing. The diverse elements of his music are tied together with Esseks’ signature melodies, creating a sound all his own.
As a way to further explore the world of visual arts, Keith Tokarski(Takyon) and Benjamin Cooke(Silent Stream) teamed together in 2012. After performing separately for many years, Takyon and Silent Stream solidified a 2-man visual performance group, Deciduous Pupils. Deciduous Pupils has had the opportunity to perform for a multitude of different talented artists and bands such as Ott , LTJ Bukem , Immortal Technique, Jumbie Art, Abakus, Phutureprimitive, Space Jesus and Lazy Rich…just to name a few. They have performed the visuals for the Disco Biscuits New Year’s run after party, the Silent Disco at Camp Bisco 2013 as well as several other festivals throughout the east coast. With the utmost experience and mastery of their craft, and a focus on creating all original artwork with live improvised performance, Deciduous Pupils is continuing to shock the minds of those around them as they bring the viewers visual perception to a new dimension throughout the East Coast.
