Split Phase (formerly Synewave) is a live electronic duo consisting of Carl 'transient' Martin on keys and live electronics with Mike McIntosh on acoustic/electric drums and samples. Split Phase has been hard at work creating and developing a unique, energetic, and refreshing sound all their own. Experimenting with influences ranging from house to drum and bass and jazz to funk, they tap an eclectic mix of styles to weave their ...sonic tapestries.
Carl's vast music experience spans the last 17 years. Stemming from his solo project 'transient' (1994-2010), which includes a discography of 475+ tracks spanning more than 38 hours covering a multitude of genres.
Over the past 4 years Mike has established himself as a rhythmical genius with his sticks. Honing in on his style and learning new skills along the way while constantly challenging himself with odd timings and beats on every track.
With the recent release of Split Phase's new EP titled 'Hooves Clackle', Mike and Carl have brought a reinvented and redefined sound to the forefront, while still staying true to their roots.
From the beginning Split Phase has been a constantly evolving force adapting a do it yourself mentality in and out of the studio, from music production, recording and mastering all of the tracks in house. This combined with the live lighting and visual projections by Nate VanSlyke make for a must see live music experience.
Split Phase's previous accomplishments include playing the 15th Annual New York State Harvest Festival, Camp Bisco 8 & 9, the Utica Music and Arts festival, along with many other venues throughout the NorthEast.
EJ3 robot is a musical aficionado of sorts, who uses keyboards, guitars, samples and looping devices to produce unique blends of funk, trip hop, jazz, blues, trance and jam rock, while also invading and meshing other genres of electronic music . In a live setting, EJ3 captivates audiences with his improvisational method of creating inventive grooves and building exploratory jams from scratch. He has been playing drums, guitar, bass, piano, and writing music for over 15 years to contribute to what he states is one of the “reasons for being alive”. This being so that humans can connect with each other. “I want to be a robot (something that is disconnected from humanity ) … an isolated figure, so that I can attentively observe all of the human connections from the outside through my music, and see them with all of their beauty.”
