The Quest Presents
A super group of musical minds that will get the party jumping to their sick beats and rhymes. The Quest Presents is made up of Mooncha, DJ Fife, MarkdaMighty, and Chef the Chef.
Falconeer is an instrumental audio/visual project bringing the spectacle back to live music in New Haven, Connecticut. Blending over the top synth pop and retro game influences, Falconeer builds on vintage synthesizers, modified videogame consoles, and a bit of tongue-in-cheek nostalgia for hyperbolic electronic hits of the 80s to make a sound somewhere between Kraftwerk and LCD Soundsystem. As a performance Falconeer uses mechanized sounds, but the human element never leaves the equation. All of the songs have a goal, and the whole production is carried out by one man, live on stage, without the aid of a modern computer. The culmination of years of experimentation with electronics and chasing classic sounds, Falconeer began in earnest in 2017 with a collection of animated and constantly moving tracks that conjure dreams of electric sheep.
The Forest Room
The Forest Room is a music project based in Cheshire, Connecticut.
The sound of this act could be described as a very organic blend of post-folk and alternative rock. The warmth and feel of the acoustic guitar melodies blend in with haunting sonic textures, programmed beats and lush, atmospheric sounds that blink an eye to genres such as shoegaze and dream-pop.
The Forest Room has a strikingly distinctive sound, not only due to the seamless blend of styles and textures but also to the fascinating dropped guitar tunings, which add a lot of depth to the riffs and chords. It’s incredible to listen to these songs and actually realize that the arrangements are very minimalistic in nature, effortlessly built upon simple, yet effective elements that hit the spot. The coordinates in this project fall somewhere in between experimental music, trip-hop, and acoustic instrumentals, making for a creative approach that’s rather broad and hard to categorize.
It’s easy to draw comparisons with artists the likes of Kaki King, Portishead, The Album Leaf or Massive Attack, just to mention but a few. One of the main characteristics of The Forest Room is the artist’s ability to create cinematic atmospheres that feel big and roomy, entrancing listeners and taking them hand in hand through a memorable sonic journey. This is music that will work well as a soundtrack to your daily activity, but it is not just “background music.” It will captivate your imagination and set the mood just right.
As a one-man protect, The Forest Room is particularly amazing to witness as a live act. The project set out to redefine the limits of what a single acoustic guitar can accomplish, blurring the edges between different genres, and exploring different sonic reaches.
