We are "Dev," err, I mean, "Brassft Punk"
By: Alex Templar - MSTv Correspondent
Earl Scioneaux lives a duo life. By day, he's a recording engineer for Preservation Hall in New Orleans and works with a trad-jazz ensemble. Sounds of classic New Orleans pervade his everyday life and creative reach.
However, when the call of modern music fusion reaches his senses, Scioneaux becomes techno/electro artist and producer, Madd Wikkid - the maestro of Matrix styled music!
Though hardly a superhero of his craft, Scioneaux has combined the classic music genre of New Orleans with the fast and furious sounds of today's electronic sounds, for quite some time.
Culminating into his 2010 album “Electronola,” the brilliant hybrid was littered with local talent, well-reviewed and actually sounded quite cool.
Scioneaux sits in his Brassft Punk lair
Brassft Punk, a relatively new creation of Scioneaux, was designed to invigorating vintage sounds with contemporary technology.
Inspired by the legendary house/trance duo, Daft Punk, Scioneaux creates music using brass instrumentation, but digitized and synthesized to a sound not produced by any instrument invented after the middle part of the nineteenth century.
Scheduled to perform at the March 8th, Buku Music & Arts Project on Friday, March 8. Its Bassft Punk's second major foray into a more live audience appeal. The first was a live performance, last December at Preservation Hall.
In speaking about the evolution of his "identity," Scioneaux states, “Electronola was a project that brought the sounds of N.O. musicians into the realm of electronica. Brassft Punk is a project that brings electronic music into the realm of N.O. musicians.”
Brassft Punk plays the Buku Music & Art Project at Mardi Gras World Friday, March 8 and Hangout Fest 2013, in Gulf Shores, Ala., in mid-May. The Brassft Punk album is scheduled to be out in March 2013. Visit thebukuproject.com for detaiis.
