"Lane’s Centennial Carnival kicks off with Battle of the Bands"

Lane Tech Warrior
Electronica guru Marsden Giolas, aka Mars, Div. 055, is the front-runner of Button along with his Mac. According to Button’s Myspace page, the music consists of basically stuff made using software such as garageband and a combination of software instruments such as guitars and keyboards with different samples from other songs. Some of Giolas’; influences include Kraftwerk, DJ Shadow, Daft Punk and Ratatat. “I wanna play around and have fun,” said Giolas. “What made me start playing this type of music was my interest in electronica music overall. I began in 8th grade when I got my Macbook laptop. I started fooling around a lot with Apple’s music software program, garageband.”
After playing around with garageband, he bought professional DJ software called Ableton Live 6 LE, which costs around $200 and a MIDI keyboard, which runs between $50-100. He has played four shows overall, including Old Town School of Folk Music at the Teen Open Mic. At the battle of the bands, a lot of people gave him positive feedback. “When the crowd starts getting excited when I play, I feel very good,” he said. “I feel the crowd is just as much as part of the show as I am. When the crowd gets involved, it helps the show work a lot.” Check out his songs at www.myspace.com/button2500
