SpinSpinNYC’s Otodojo and Twin Primes Discuss Making Music with Molecules, Ecuadorian Shamanism and Post 9/11 Dystopia | Magnetic Magazine

otodojo-twin-primes-mm

“Taking a cue from Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, a publication that features intimate conversations between creative thinkers, we asked two of New York’s rising electronic music producers, SpinSpinNYC’s otodojo (Maro Kariya) and Twin Primes (Omar Ahmad), to record a dialogue about what inspires them to create music and what influences their productions. The artists did just that and then some, exploring politics, life lessons and visualizing the sound of molecules like benzene along the way.

Twin Primes (TP): I first heard your remix of “Says” by Nils Frahm through a friend who is known for being a huge critic.

otodojo (O): I didn’t think that putting drums on top of a piano sequence looping for 10 minutes would lead to such a great connection.

TP: What’s behind the name, otodojo?”

Nutritious Shares How to Prepare for Your Next Party via Insomniac

“A great festival experience doesn’t start when you get to the grounds; it starts in the days and weeks leading up to the main event. One way comes really naturally, and that is to spend some time looking forward to the party, which builds up anticipation and makes you more likely to remember it for life. Another and more vital way to help ensure that you have the best possible festival experience is to take care of your body inside and out. Perhaps you’re already operating at optimum health levels with both diet and exercise. You’re a star! The rest of us could probably use some tips from someone who understands the festival lifestyle.

Enter Nutritious, a DJ, producer and graduate of New York City’s Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. He has a passion for beats, as well as for food’s impact on society. If you’ve got a week or two, or even just a few days, to make some healthy food changes before the party, Nutritious suggests first cutting out as much caffeine and sweeteners as you can. While coffee can give you the temporary illusion of having more drive, “excess sugar and caffeine can stress the system and zap your energy,” he says. Your sweet tooth might not like to hear all that, and if you are not ready to go totally cold turkey on sugar, Nutritious suggests using dates to sweeten smoothies and dressings…”

This will be our second ambient & experimental series at Bossa Nova Civic Club! Metamorph is an immersive experience that utilizes music and live visuals to incubate a shift in perception. This event is free! Like the first one there will be rugs on the dance floor. We’ve also figured out a better setup for visuals and lighting to set the mood.

Otodojo: From anime-inspired beats to minimal ambient microhouse, otodojo resists confinement in any particular genre. The name ‘otodojo’ is translated to ‘a sound place for learning’, which reflects its function: an environment built for experimentation, and free from expectation.

Tenkai: Tenkai is an ambient & experimental artist who will be coming from San Franscisco to perform a modular live set. Founder of Zetaohm and creator of the modular synth FLXS1, he pushes his music to other-worldy boundaries that stands true to an artform in itself.

Lisa Dowling: Lisa Dowling is a bassist and improviser living in New York. Her playing has been described as ‘energetic and precise’ by the New York Times and ‘sublime and lovely’ by Bruce Gallanter of the Downtown Music Gallery. Her debut CD ‘The Invention Room’ with Sitarist and electronic improviser Gian Luigi Diana, was praised as ‘exotic’ (DMG) and is distributed by the Downtown Music Gallery. As a versatile musician she performs a wide variety of music including baroque, experimental, classical, jazz and hip-hop. She considers improvising and collaborating with artists from all backgrounds essential to her development as a musician and human being. Her energetic and feisty commitment to new music and emerging composers has resulted in over 12 works for double bass written specifically for her. She has also premiered additional works from American and European composers. Her primary focus as a musician is to develop the sound world of the electric and upright bass and abolish any preconceived limitations of these instruments.

Jad Atoui feat. Michael Coltun: Jad Atoui is a Lebanese music composer and electronic sounds experimentalist. He’ll be playing with michael Coltun who will be improvising on the bass throughout Jad’s performance. Jad Atoui ,using his electronic gear and field recordings that express raw sounds as they appear to us through nature, he produces and composes music that fits styles of ambient, dub techno and glitch. The sonic feel in this body of work shifts from ambient to purely electronic, harsh yet hypnotizing sounds. His work has been featured in Pompidou Center (2012, Paris). As for performances, Jad Atoui performed with renowned artists like John Zorn, Ikue Morie and Erik Friedlander.

AJ Clay: A NYC resident AJ Clay has been spreading his deep, techy, progressive sound throughout the city. When it comes to DJ’ing, AJ believes in one thing: the programming of a night. His name is well on the way to standing for a brand that represents a certain mixture of sounds that build and progress as the night carries on. Also, with a deep passion for ambient & down tempo; AJ has been exploring his more experimental roots as of late. For this particular night he will be laying down an ambient & down tempo DJ set for us.
