Datassette

The Datassette project is a series of electronic music recordings by John M Davies, and as the name would suggest there is a heavy influence of the C64 SID Chip at work here.

Meneo

Meneo is pure gameboy reggaetón and electro-dancehall along vocoders and keytars, which are the weapons of choice for *MeNeO*'s deep, flavoured, latin rhythms that are accompanied by Entter's VJ "Fruity Booty" and his made-to-measure vjing application that's been the envy of many at several video art festivals. The MENEO performance investigates artistic concepts that imply the surprising and unforeseeable, accidents, mistakes and coincidences as a means to alter the dynamics of creative performance and to discover new aesthetic presentations.
