The Human Experience
David's music is the soundtrack to my soul." – Zan Roberts
"The Human Experience" is David Block's debut project as a live electronic composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer. Listeners experience a delicious symphonic blend of prismatic soundscapes and sultry beats.
David is constantly pushing the boundaries of live electronic music. Playing, composing, and conducting his own electronic symphony live on stage, his performances are brimming and layered with human emotion, world exploration, and sacred sounds. Whether performing by himself, or with a live band, "The Human Experience" always delivers an emotionally charged show.
Collaborating with many artists around the world, "The Human Experience" aims to cross cultural barriers through music. His first album "Inaudible Sounds" is a 14 track sonic journey, interweaving psychedelic layers of melody and harmony with organic grooves and international vibes. Also composing and performing live with the Audio/Visual/Dance project "Phadroid, and Seraphim" David is expanding his sounds into the mixed media world.
David is consistently redefining himself as an artist, performer, and human being. Moving and traveling around the world, meeting people from all walks of life and realms of consciousness, David is continually learning, growing, and sharing inspiration with those around him.
"We don't play music, music plays us" – David Block
Tinker (aka Sara Kremer) is multi-media artist, electronic musician, and event curator currently based in San Francisco. As a dancer, performer, and traveler, she traces her aesthetics back through West Coast festivals, Chicago clubbing, and London squat parties, to its roots in the Colorado rave scene of the mid 90s. Her musical foundation includes voice, piano, and percussion, as well as a lasting love of Gamelan that has taken her on tour to Bali to perform with the highly regarded group Gamelan X.
Creativity gained from fourteen years in the electronic music scene flows though her veins. Like a clockmaker in his shop or a passionate scientist her lab, she is always creating, changing patterns and substituting beats in her sets, twisting them into something new and fresh. Using tools of live sampling and performance within Ableton and her trusty APC, or field recordings from her extensive travels, Tinker mixes up a variety of ingredients that will keep you on your toes. A love of wee things and bell sounds make her name doubly fitting, and her playful sets have been described as beat-driven, melodic, glitch-y, and experimental. She rebels against genre, mixing dubstep, wonky, breaks, cumbia, downtempo, hip-hop and more in a single set. She has a captivating presence, earned through years of dance and fire-performance, inspiring audiences to swoon at her lush sonics or dance like mad at her driving beats and bass.
Tinker is the resident laptop mistress of the long-standing and well-respected San Francisco arts collective False Profit. She has directed the chill stage at False Profit’s annual campout Priceless, curated a stage at Yuri’s Night Bay Area @ NASA Ames (for which she was also a founding creative visionary), and has thrown numerous other legendary underground parties in the Bay and beyond. Performing everywhere from the esteemed Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Cal Academy of Sciences to dark and dank basement clubs in Berlin, she has shared the stage with Boxcutter, the Glitch Mob, Tom Burbank, Take, Afta-1, Anenon, Deru, Eliot Lipp, Dr. Toast, Random Rab, EPROM, Kid Kameleon, Lazer Sword, David Last, and more. She is a fast-blossoming producer in her own right, creating tunes that are getting noticed within the fertile west coast music scene. Be sure to catch this mischief-maker put smiles on faces and wiggles in the hips of her listeners.
BELI3VER (Robin Tala) was born in 1984 to hippy parents on a Llama Farm/Recording & Mastering Studio outside the liberal oasis of Bloomington, Indiana. Robin has been surrounded by music and creativity, and encouraged to follow his dreams since day one.
At 18, directly out of high school, Robin simultaneously founded the Bloomington Circus Collective (a not-for-profit organization and collective of hip hop artists and circus performers who gathered at political events to liven the atmosphere and build morale), was a founding member of the 6 piece Hip Hop group, Parrhesia and a founding member of the Reggae/Hip Hop/Kirtan Band, Baraka.
At 20, having recently migrated to the Bay Area, Robin founded Cyphertown, the first ever stage and theme camp for live Hip Hop Culture at the Burning Man Festival. Cyphertown turned into a successful event production company and Robin produced shows under this moniker for 5 years.
At age 27, Robin founded Win ∆ Win Pro, another production company, while promising himself that it was time balance the amount of energy he was putting into administrative/organizing with the amount of time and energy he was putting into his own creative endeavors.
BELI3VER was born in 2012 out of this self-promise. Please enjoy :)
