Feeling a bit camera shy


aerialist is lary hoffman singing and playing synthesizer and guitar while nikhil ranade plays drums. we are from arlington virginia. history: aerialist began in 1996 as a solo project of lary hoffman, who was then playing with a band called five state drive. after five state drive broke up lary made an aerialist record with some beats from five state drive drummer stevie treichel and it was produced by mike ivey of "basehead" fame. after that, stevie officially joined aerialist and they made a record with a green cover in 1999 that this site's "what if we" is from. they played a little bit and then stevie moved to chicago. heartbroken, lary quit singing and started making instrumental music under the aerialist name until 2001 when his stupid sampler broke. Lary and longtime buddy/aerialist recording engineer Nikhil Ranade have been writing some new tunes and reworking some old aerialist and five state drive tunes for guitar/synth/vocals/drumset are now playing out under the aerialist name. the stuff is more rock-oriented than the earlier aerialist stuff, as lary is primarily playing guitar while stomping on a foot pedal synthesizer and singing instead of playing mostly synths in other aerialist incarnations.
