Summer Reading


FRINGE MUSIC in the Library :: Protect-U

Proxies for the word “synthesizer” usually imply some sort of limitation: box, rig, assembly, gear, array, machine, and so on. In Protect-U’s hands though, synths are liberated to contribute whatever they can toward body-moving and brain-waving. The Washington, D.C., duo — Mike Petillo and Aaron Leitko — treats every piece of hardware as an expression of possibility, and then enjoins those circuits into its rhythm-driven mission.
