The Noiseblast Hour

Published on Oct 27, 2019 Noise Engineering

"Live from the Noise Engineering headquarters in Los Angeles, CA, it's the Noiseblast Hour, brought to you by Noise Engineering, hosted by Pyraphonic (aka Shawn Jimmerson)! This is the third installment in a series of indeterminate length and sporadic release (h/t Roman Mars). Watch here for future episodes!

In today's episode, we have Patrick O'Brien, aka POB, and BBoyTech. Stay tuned after each set for a short interview with the performers!

Patrick O'Brien aka POB is a modular synth performer based in Los Angeles. Patrick grew up outside of St. Louis, classically trained on both piano and trumpet, which comes through in his melodic performances. Patrick is also part of the Modular on the Spot organizational team that sets up free outdoor public modular synth performances each month in LA. You can catch his live performances on YouTube as obrienmedia and Instagram as pobenergy.

A pioneering figure of the Modbap community and movement, Corry Banks (aka BboyTech) coined the term Modbap as a representation of his experiments in blending hip-hop and boombap production styles with modular synthesis. As the founder of both (Music tech blog for Beatmakers) and (Music and sound design label / brand), BboyTech focuses on assuring the voice of hip-hop is present in music technology by combining his passions for hip-hop music and his experience as an IT professional into a platform for like-minded individuals and peers. Since then, his innovative contributions in Modbap have nurtured a movement in experimental modular synth based hip-hop production.
