A synthetic protest band engineered to erase cultural distinctions through polarized confusion.
Regal Degal is a power trio consisting of Josh da Costa [Gemini] on guitars and vocals, Josiah Wolfson [Libra] on bass, and Jamen Whitelock [Virgo] on drums. Formed in Brooklyn in late 2009, the group recently relocated to Los Angeles. The group's sound pulls omnidirectionally from across the musical spectrum, drawing from post-punk, krautrock, 60's psychedelic / freakbeat, 80's new wave and indie, German minimal house, and the music of Africa. The music could be described as hyper rhythm conscious, melodic, atmospheric, and kinetic, with one foot firmly in the past and an eye fixed towards the future. In the center resides Regal Degal, channeling and reinterpreting all individual and shared inspirations into a sound best referred to as DEEP ROCK.
ALEXIS GEORGOPOULOS is a composer and artist based in New York City.
As ARP, he has tended towards liminal, minimal music, often using analog synthesizers and classical stringed instruments. His recent album MORE (Smalltown Supersound 2013), however, showcases the composer's first foray into traditional song form.
Since 2002, Georgopoulos has performed internationally and has been presented by CHANEL, The Kitchen, PS1, Goethe–Institut, Deitch Projects, Walker Art Center, MoMA, New Museum, White Columns, 303 Gallery, Jacob's Pillow, SFMoMA, Luggage Store Gallery, Jack Hanley Gallery, New Langton Arts, Yerba Buena Center and Frieze Art Fair.
