The Eternals are a three piece hailing from the city of Chicago. Their music pulls from a variety of sources, foremost amongst them Reggae, Jazz and Soul. These influences all play a large role in the rhythms utilized by the group, creating music which is sometimes rolling, sometimes sparse, with staccato melodies provided courtesy of bass, organ, synthesizer and drums. The band also makes use of melodica, a tape machine, and a sound effects generator. Vocals and dance moves (for concert goers) bring the point home. The roots of The Eternals can be found in the percussive and melodic sounds of great artists like Augustus Pablo and The Headhunters. At times, it seems to transform from something familiar into something otherworldly.
Dave Grant – modular synthesizer
Chuck Bettis – electronics
SNAKE UNION is a Brooklyn based experimental electronic group consisting of Chuck Bettis (Die Trommel Fatale, Mossenek) and David Grant (Action Patrol, On A Clear Day). A duo that works in improvisational rhythmic explorations that match analog synths and digital sound processing, modular wires and max patches. By turns psychedelic, delicate, and fuzzed out, the sequenced collides with the freeform as these two soundmakers push into new realms.
