Haptic Synapses live at Binary Society 01

Earlier this year we participated in a really awesome series of events in the south SF bay area called Binary Society!  Danny Kim, the creator of this set of events, has been a fantastic force who has brought many many new people into the fold, and for that I’m eternally grateful.  Check out this awesome video, too:

Haptic Synapses Live at GLOW 2015

It’s been a year of transitions for me (steve) and our show calendar has been light so far this year.  We played at SubZERO 2015, and it was awesome, and we were also asked back to Santa Cruz MAH’s GLOW festival.  I have a bit more mental bandwidth, so I was able to put together a couple of videos compiling the various video and audio recordings we took of the event.  This video in particular is the second set of our performance.  There’s a video of the first hour out there… this is the better set, imho.

Watch this video on YouTube.

Once again, Santa Cruz showed us a ton of support and appreciation for what we’re trying to do, and we had an amazingly fun time.  The Museum of Art and History has some serious mojo going on, and they should be a model for community arts organizations to emulate.  You’d be incredibly lucky to replicate what they’re doing.  Anyway, check them out if you’re in the santa cruz area! http://www.santacruzmah.org/

FriendFeed was shut down on April 9, 2015. We maintained the service since we joined Facebook in 2009, but the number of people using FriendFeed had been steadily declining and in the end, the community was just a fraction of what it once was. Given this, we decided that it was time to start winding things down.

We want to thank you all for being such a terrific and enthusiastic community. We're proud of what we built so many years ago, and we recognize that it would have never been possible without your support.

Dear FriendFeed community,

We wanted to let you know that FriendFeed will be shutting down soon. We've been maintaining the service since we joined Facebook five years ago, but the number of people using FriendFeed has been steadily declining and the community is now just a fraction of what it once was. Given this, we've decided that it's time to start winding things down.

Beginning today, we will no longer accept new signups. You will be able to view your posts, messages, and photos until April 9th. On April 9th, we'll be shutting down FriendFeed and it will no longer be available.

We want to thank you all for being such a terrific and enthusiastic community. We're proud of what we built so many years ago, and we recognize that it would have never been possible without your support.

Haptic Synapses Live at Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History : GLOW 2014

Watch this video on YouTube.

Another fun show, this time in Santa Cruz at the Museum of Art and History for their event titled “GLOW: A Festival of Fire and Light”.  And I just want to say how incredibly impressed I am with the organizational power this group has. I’ve never been treated so well, fed so well, and helped so much with setup and teardown.  Truly an incredible team of staff and volunteers they have there.  I want to thank them so much for the invitation to play, we had a great time!

Absolutely epic dance circle at SubZERO 2014

IMG_3965I had to post this photo I took from subzero 2014.  An amazing crowd of people circled up to watch some dancers show their moves off while we played live techno.  It was so cool!!
