The Toychest Soundtrack



Combine haunting, intoxicating vocals and sophisticated lyricism with loop-driven, bassy/spacey instrumentals and you get the neo-Mazzy Star of indie pop/dance/electronic music: Toni Atari.

This emerging artist from Southern Vermont is a true pioneer of independent music-- a self-produced, self-engineered, and self-managed artist since 2011. "My instrumentals are pretty sparse, because I'm primarily a lyricist and singer...I learned to produce because I needed a way to share my music...without having to learn guitar."

Her first exposure to creating electronic music came early in her college education. "I got to handle Moogs Synths, old school Akai Synths, even a Theremin. Today I work almost exclusively in midi, but I love synthesizers and electronic music in general. And yes, I sometimes record with acoustic instruments--even guitar."

Also during her college career, she wrote and produced an original musical called The Toychest. "I did everything from choreography to costume design...That part wasn't too hard because the musical takes place in a strip club--so the outfits were skimpy. The subject matter appealed to me because I love the idea of taking socially deviant situations and re-staging them as fine art...exploring personal freedom is always inappropriate and also really just fun."

In mid-2011 Toni Atari took on a co-producer Darryl K. "He's an awesome and dedicated musician with great pop sensibilities, on top of just being a wonderful friend and supporter."

Ms. Atari is currently organizing a New England College Tour for post-Spring Break "Guerilla style...If you can't get permission, just beg for forgiveness later." She's is anticipating a summer festivals tour before settling into her new Brooklyn residence.
