Toaster hails from San Jose CA. Todd Elliott is it’s sole member, and he makes music using a variety of tools and approaches; incorporating a wide variety of electronic music styles.
Todd garners inspiration from artists such as John Cage, Autechre, Scanner, Throbbing Gristle and Pink Floyd to name but a few. His constant experimentation with different hardware and software bolsters his enthusiasm to create. Todd is known to enjoy a Martini when he’s not delving into the finer intricacies of sequencing.

Sheila Bosco is a keyboardist featuring her own sound libraries and arpeggio loops. Sheila also plays with Collette McCaslin in Alien Planet and in experimental super group Thomas Carnacki. When not playing keyboards, you will find her banging away on the drum set with San Francisco’s Dire Wolves and quartet zBug. Sheila’s hair is pretty messy these days, so please come to the show to give her advice on how to deal with this.

Matt Davignon’s music is “fragile and gorgeous and stubbornly weird,” according to the SF Bay Guardian. He’s best known for combining drum machine and/or pre-recorded voices with a variety of electronic processing devices to create shifting layers of organic and expressive sounds. His music is inspired by field recordings, natural sound phenomena, irregular and imperfect rhythms, and psychedelic, drone and space music.

Suki O’Kane is a classically trained mallet percussionist, composer and instigator working with artists from a wide array of of music, movement, expanded cinema and public art genres. She has composed for Theatre of Yugen and inkBoat, performs in the ensembles of Dan Plonsey, and is a member of Thingamajigs Performance Group with Edward Schocker and Dylan Bolles.

Mysteries of uB Episode 9

I love this series of video/experimental music from the one and only uB studios!
I was lucky to play on the second half…..enjoy!

From the beginning of time, a certain rock on the Mountain of Fruit and Flowers had been soaking up the goodness of nature and QI energy. One day this pregnant rock released a stone egg, and from it hatched a Stone Ape, who solemnly bowed to the Four Corners of the Earth — then jumped off to have fun.
