Help Bleep Blop’s New Collaboration with Sandeep Das

[This just in from Ramon Castillo of Bleep Blop Ensemble. Bleep Blop is an electro-acoustic experimental music ensemble that is collaborating with Grammy-nominated performer/composer Sandeep Das—and a StudioLive 16.0.2! They are looking to create a record and performance series with Sandeep, and could really use your help!]

Hey PreSonus!

I wanted to let you and the PreSonus community know that my ensemble Bleep Blop has launched a funding campaign with the great tabla player, Sandeep Das.  We’ll be doing our normal thing, hooking him up to lots of gadgets via the StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer, and creating some cool new sounds!
Performer/composer Sandeep Das, twice nominated for Grammy Awards, performs regularly with the Silk Road Ensemble and Yo-Yo Ma as well as several internationally renowned artists. Sandeep’s very extensive bio can be read here.

One of Bleep Blop’s primary missions is to make music technology accessible to a wide variety of performers, composers and other artists. We are committed to the music of young and emerging composers, and we have premiered 13 works and performed countless others over the last 3 years.

Sandeep Das and Bleep Blop will write lots of new music, record and perform these new works, and release lots of media.

The music will feature everything from electronically manipulated piano, analog synthesis, the Kronos Quartet Drum Machine, dynamically looped mbira, live video, to “third stream” free improvised experimental music, and a robotic glockenspiel controlled by Mike Testa.

Our prior performances have successfully merged the art of acoustic music with the mystique of audio technology, but for this concert, we are going to bring improvisation and technology to a new level.

Music by Ramon Castillo, PoChun Wang, Mike Testa, Loudon Stearns, Raleigh Green, Olga Karaseva, Deepak Gopinath and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
