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!

Haptic Synapses live at Empire Seven Studios, June 26 2013

We were lucky enough to be invited to play at the SF Design Week in Silicon Valley event at Joe Miller’s solo show “Mass Produced Original Thought” at Empire Seven Studios. It was an amazing body of thought provoking art, and I’m really glad to say we had a great session and everyone was really happy with how it went.

Haptic Synapses live at 2011 SubZERO Festival — video

Well it was a long fun night. We had technical problems and came up with great solutions. It was great, and I hope we get to do it again next year. Here’s an hour long video of us playing. Sorry for the lack of light. You get an idea of what was going on, though. It’s available in 720p… and the sound is better at that resolution.


20 minute HD clip of haptic synapses playing live at south bay music swap

Here’s us playing at the south bay music swap event in may 2011… I had a lot more footage, but this clip has all three of us in it, so I figured it would be cool to post. I shot it with my gopro hd hero, hence the exxxttrrreeeeme wide angle. Enjoy!

This clip goes on up to 720p… :) youtube has smiled upon me, so I can upload looooonger movies.
