Monotronic - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Created from the vision of guitarist/anthropologist Ramsey Elkholy, Monotronic combines his love for music with his inspiration from other cultures. Much of these influences are a result of his lengthy travels throughout Asia and Southeast Asia. Spending two years backpacking throughout the world and studying Indian music in Calcutta, he later returned to Southeast Asia as a Ph.D. student and lived among the Orang Rimba tribe in the rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia for 2 years. Living this "collective" or "tribal" mode of life where the group is valued over the individual and everything is shared is an idea that Ramsey brings to Monotronic, where every musician is encouraged to bring their own creativity to produce truly "collective" music. According to Elkholy "Monotronic is a concept, whereby each instrument can be heard as a continuation of the other and the music sounds as one distinct whole, emanating from a single source."
