We believe that when great minds work together, we can forge the future.

We are an electronic music duo, and we want to forge the future of music. We want it to be a future in which music performances are engaging and authentic expressions of emotion—not just DJs pressing play on stage. We’ve been working on this mission for a while now, and it’s led us to create technology that enables us to create music like no one has ever done before. The core of the technology is a pair of gloves that allows us to control music in thin air with motions and gestures. With this tech, we’re able to literally shape sound—molding and sculpting it as we please.

We’re using these gloves to craft a distinctive musical style, and to put on live performances that have never been seen in EDM. Our fans are able to engage with our music on an entirely new level, being able to both see and hear the music created in front of their eyes.

Who Are We?

We're a team that started out as just college roommates. We were two engineering students that connected over a shared passion for both music and technology. Being bright-eyed students, we had the audacity to believe that we could make a musical instrument that was more expressive, more intuitive, and more powerful than anything else that was already out there. We imagined an instrument that would allow us to shape sound as if it were an object held between our hands.

We found out quickly that creating revolutionary technology is not easy—our first prototype was held together by hot-glue and sounded like a dying mosquito, but at least it was a start. Over the next few semesters, we built many new prototypes, researching and experimenting with all types of technologies, from movie motion-capture suits to medical tracking devices. Two years later, by the time we were graduating, we found that we had actually created something pretty cool.

After leaving college, we went our separate ways, and went to work in the “real world”. This project was almost lost to the churn of everyday life, but we found that what we created kept calling to us. Our story and our instrument had begun inspiring others about the what the future of music could be, and that was when we knew we couldn’t let go of the idea.

Six months ago we quit our jobs and went all in. It was a big risk that we took. We didn't know if we would succeed or fail, but we believed in the vision of the future that we had imagined. We were willing to take the gamble because we felt that the music we wanted to create was important, and that it was important for us to share it with the world—with you.

Where are we going?

Since committing to this project, we've been working out of our apartment in Las Vegas, doing everything ourselves. Ray's in one corner soldering circuits and sewing the gloves together while Mike mans the computer and programs software to make everything work. We write all the music together, and we’ve spent hours refining our distinctive sound. We've haven’t been afraid to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty because we know that’s what’s necessary to bring you the electronic music you deserve.

It's been a whirlwind of a journey jumping headfirst into the music business, trying to learn how to gain fans and get our music heard. We want to thank you for being here. This is the start. This is the moment in time in which we are getting off the ground—and you're a part of this now because you recognize that this is going to be something huge one day. We hope you’ll be a part of shaping the future of music, not just for us, but for everyone who wants to see something new in EDM.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is the record label of the future—where there is no label. Patreon allows us to get financial backing directly from our fans, cutting out the middle man and allowing us to have complete creative control of our music.

By signing up to back us, you’re pledging to support us with a monthly donation. Your support is a statement that you believe in our vision for the future. To show our appreciation, we’ll be giving our supporters access to special perks, like exclusive behind-the-scene videos, access to improvised performances that will never be heard elsewhere, and the ability to participate in weekly livestreams where you can talk with us directly. You can think of it like subscribing to our fan club of future forgers.

Why Do We Need Your Help?

Making music is expensive. Making music technology is even more expensive. We are essentially running an advanced research and development music lab out of our apartment. We've needed to purchase sensors, LEDs, and conductive fabrics to make the gloves, and as we continue to refine our instrument, we’ll have more expenses. We've also got a lot of other ideas we want to implement—an LED light suit that's synchronized to our motions and music, better lighting effects, and projection-mapped visuals. It's all in the works. We want to be able to take our music and our performances to the next level, and demonstrate to the world what the future of music looks like.

Of course, food and water for staying alive is also important.

We've been lucky enough to have some savings to live off of, but those savings are diminishing every day, and even though we're getting a lot of attention, we're not at a point yet where we're making a lot of money (or much at all) for what we do. That’s why we need your help. Even $2 a month goes a long way towards keeping this project going.
We want you to know that even if you can't support us financially, your enthusiasm for building the future of music with us is what keeps us going every day. Supporting us by sharing our content, telling your friends about us, and listening to our music means just as much to us as a financial contribution.

Thank you for being here. This is the future.
