Synthestesia is a quarterly live A/V show, where modular synthesizers and 16mm/video installation commune for spontaneous performance. Simulated effects may include feelings of viscous, spacey, dense and/or ethereal transformation.December 1st Show will be featuring: Shelia Bosco, J. and Maizies’ Surgical Theater experiments, Ron spoones., Davvy Jones, and Neil Davis.

Sheila Bosco is a keyboardist who enjoys experimenting live with her own sound libraries and loops. Sheila also plays keys with Collette McCaslin in Alien Planet, in experimental super group Thomas Carnacki and hanging in the DFM Radio studios with Big City Orchestra. When not playing keyboards, you will find her banging away on the drum set with San Francisco’s Dire Wolves and quartet zBug. https://sbosco.bandcamp.com/

J. and Maizies’ Surgical Theater experiments with biological themes using overhead projectors and various layers and fluids. Maizie is an artist, violinist and student at New Traditions Elementary School. Her dad J. is a musician, visual artist and one of the founders of Synthestesia.

Ron spoones- Let’s just say this year hasn’t been one for the faint of heart and my only retort has been and will be always the bombastic joy of noise, fizzing, crackly pop of 1000 sheets of paper, and a soft French whisper interrupted. Technically, it’s all ordered around Euclidean percussion and the punk drummer that takes my breathe away. In a dense fog of marijuana smoked and soldered it together, and here we are now.

Neil Davis is a filmmaker living in Los Angeles who specializes in experimental editing. His works are often effect-heavy and collage-like, playing with patterns both visually, aurally, and editorially. Neil often tries to blur and confuse various digital and analog effects in his works – trying to replicate practical effects digitally and digital effects with more traditional, practical techniques. Recently, Neil has been experimenting with forms of visual meditation in both individual and group settings.
