Agobi Project | 9:00 PM
Incorporating organic and digital elements into a singular musical entity, Agobi Project embodies an artistic vision limited only by the boundaries of human thought and feeling. Seeking to uplift, unite, and inform, Agobi Project's original compositions filter elements of jazz, ambient drum n' bass, hip-hop, atmospheric dubstep, and glitch informed IDM through the trans-personal experiences of the trio. The aural experience is delicately balanced between composition and improvisation, premeditation and spontaneity, light and dark, past and future.
Since its conception in November, 2008, Agobi Project has embraced the spirit of the tightly knit community of music lovers through its live shows. Integrating state of the art electronics with live drums, and guitar, Agobi Project creates a high energy display of musical wizardry, both melodic and beat driven, listenable and danceable. Often combining multiple forms of intentional creation (live painting, wire wrapping, crystal displays, etc) into a single show, Agobi Project strives to create a positive, energizing, healing environment wherever it goes.
Partners in the exploration also include a growing number of national artists who have joined the band on stage, including percussionist Chuck Morris from Lotus, Curt Heiny from Telepath, and the Emcee PegLeg. They have also shared performances with a diverse array of artists including Shpongle, Eliot Lipp, Telepath, Benga, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, The Egg, Ott, Toubab Krewe, and Two Fresh. Look for the self titled debut album from Agobi Project coming in January 2010!
