Somewhere in a small hidden studio next to a government spy agency in Sydney an ambidextrous studio producer known as BATTERIE is working late into the night. With the persuasion of a double shot espresso BATTERIE powers up his sampler and picks up a pair of splintered drum sticks ready to ready to beat a track into shape. With a penchant for wildly syncopated rhythms that interlock precisely with the glitched out sounds of toy keyboards bought with plastic money from a far away virtual world, the BATTERIE sound scape begins to take form. Driven by a disdain for the rules of musical convention that in his youth were drummed into him by a disgruntled Russian conductor, BATTERIE records one last take on the hybrid drum kit then automates the final filter sweep before completing the latest track.
BATTERIE is a new solo performance and studio project for musician Jared Underwood. Glitch Pop Instrumental Electronica. Each live set combines drums, electronics, keyboards, live looping and improvisation. Bands that have inspired the project include- Battles, Four tet, Tortoise, Caribou and Ratatat.
A recent live gig highlight was supporting new york band GANG GANG DANCE at The Sydney Opera House Dec 2011.
