My Education/Theta Naught

My Education: Since forming in 1999, My Education has released 5 full-length albums, several singles, compilation appearances, and a 12" vinyl collaboration with avant-hip hop duo Dalek. Recordings have been remixed by members of bands Kinski, Pelican, the Red Sparowes and Dalek. Albums include 5 Popes, Italian, Moody Dipper, Bad Vibrations and the latest Sunrise out on Strange Attractors Audio House in the USA & Canada and on Golden Antenna in Europe. Theta Naught: After forming in 2002, the collective of musicians that comprise Theta Naught have continued to push their own idea of improvisational, experimental, instrumental music into new realms. They have recorded and released five albums on the Differential Records label: Something Scientific, Abacus, Sound Weave, Naught Christmas, and Omnium-Gatherum. Their music has also been featured on a variety of compilation albums, and television and film scores. Drawing influence from a wide spectrum of art and science, the group has been compared to a cross-genre hybrid of acts like J.S. Bach, Faith No More, Miles Davis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Pink Floyd, and more. No strangers to collaboration, Theta Naught has been involved with performances and recordings featuring the addition of movement, light, and voice, by means of dancers, projectionists, films, poets, word-shakers, et cetera. They will be performing an improvisational, collaborative performance with My Education at SXSW. Several tours throughout the country have kept fans abuzz with My Education's experimental blend of stoned drones and noisy tones. The sonic squalls captivate the listener with intoxicating waves of aural exhilaration. The band is currently keeping busy in the studio recording tracks for a forthcoming new album and European tour for 2011. Two other projects are also on the horizon. In June 2010 the band completed a series of improvisational studio recordings with Salt Lake City ensemble Theta Naught. These are now being edited and mixed by My Education and the Bump Boyz in Headbump Studios in preparation for a vinyl release as part of Differential Records' Harmonic Motion series this year. Both bands will also be performing at a collaborative showcase for SXSW 2011. Initial preproduction is also underway for My Education's collaboration with the Noble Motion dance company, 'The Chamber', which will be staged in June 2011 in Austin and Houston.
