Playgrounds for the Poor Ty Cobb Portland This solo project of Ty Cobb was officially founded on October 6th, 2011 on Dashera, the "Day of Removing Bad Fates." Playgrounds for the Poor is a multi-media performance project. Video, dancing, and other live visuals are utilized and change often. Playgrounds for the Poor incorporates live vocals, guitar, keyboards & other instruments that are often sampled and treated heavily with effects to create a moving musical manipulation. Songs become nearly unrecognizable thru the performance, yet maintain a certain familiarity as they transform and catapult into cosmic layers of Electro/Dub/Trip-Hop genre-blending music. Playgrounds for the Poor was born to be a creative channel directed at uplifting, reaching, and attaining a sparkling prize of positivity and light while remaining vague and mysterious on the dance floor.
