Basic Biology releases their 2nd recording-Melting Patterns-with an evening of curated live and electronic music and performance art inside of a stunning visual mapped environment at the MSA ANNEX.
Just as this new year crested the band planned, designed and shot a music video with Flam Chen and the photographic direction of local media master Jeff Smith for the title track of the new release and all the collaborators are super excited as the shoot was exhilarating and yielded a uniquely stunning piece. It preview that evening as well!
Over the months, post their Night of the Living Fest 2018 Sunday evening 2hr show the idea and design of the shoot started as caffeine fueled conversations at Hermosa Coffee (located at the MSA ANNEX) where Tommy Brinson and members of Flam Chen fed each others loves of both bass driven music, media mapping, performance art and filmmaking. This led to a designed and executed shoot in one choice, Westside, local cineographic environments that many will recognize…
Basic Biology is the organic creation of two different dudes with two very different musical upbringings. Thomas Brinson (Thomas B) started producing after 20+ years as a DnB DJ and Matthew Cassidy is a multi-instrumentalist who started playing music at age 10. Matthew and Thomas met through common friend, and producer, GHAST. One late spring, Matthew was approached by GHAST to sing on ‘Null Explodes’ by the collaboration group Onism Qi (Quentin Hiatus, Ghast and Thomas B). After working on ‘Null Explodes’, Thomas and Matthew started sharing music with each other and a natural chemistry was born. They take an experimental yet palatable approach with little consideration for bpm, style, or genre; they simply enjoy creating what comes naturally using organic and synthetic elements.
