Men Imitating Machines (Australia) take live drums and bass and turn them on their ear. Jarman Donohue (Medical tech by day and jedi bass guitar wobbler by night) has come together with Matty O'Brien (scientist and jazz trained drummer) to produce a 100% live set built with the foundations of dubstep, glitch-hop and junglistic rhythms.
The boys use a MIDI bass guitar and MIDI drums to control two laptops, allowing them to shape a sound free of pre-programming and done totally on the fly. This coupled with a custom light and projection show (by Tommy Gunn), wild stage antics, crowd heckling and a dislike of shoes makes them a unique high energy act.
