Bio

"Air guitar made real - at long last." -Eliot Van Buskirk (Wired Magazine)

The Airband is a performance ensemble of composers, musicians, mad scientists. They perform using homebuilt midi devices, hi-jacked video game controllers and laptop computers. Their music ranges from eccentric covers of popular tunes to abstract soundscapes, and a verity of experiemental and improvised forms in between. The Airband has performed in experimental music venues, art galleries and comedy venues in NYC. The Airband gets its name from the first home build devices the band used to make music. The device known as the MIDI Airguitar works much like a traditional airguitar except the airguitarist can actually make and control the music. The Airband members eventually developed other instruments such as the airdrums, techno-matic and motion-synth to create a full range of expressive instruments. The Airband members have several independent projects that inform and inspire the work of the ensemble.
