STYROFOAM SANCHEZ

STYROFOAM SANCHEZ is a post industrial sound and sculptural installation personifying the trash island in the pacific gyre. Spawning from a hybrid of human DNA and trash, Sanchez is a dystopian amalgamated magnification of failed civilizations, spliced rogue technologies gone awry spawning dark pulses of technological neurosis and inner psychosis . When fish put fin to sand then you'll understand, fish can carry guns. Styrofoam Sanchez represents the last molecule before total conversion of humans into futuristic trash receptacles. Human, your skull will be in a museum.

ALLIES OF THE SWINE/PRESS
" Styrofoam Sanchez sounds like today's sonic detritus assembled into some approximation of a doomy tomorrow, as if the future will just be the sum of today's trash. The experimental group performs in elaborate Styrofoam headpieces and suits, evoking future monopolists of nonrecyclable material flaunting their wealth. Its sets consist of a single lengthy piece, incorporating musique concrète, computers, and live electronic manipulation, that at times sounds like grating machinery or a chorus of amplified empty stomachs. It's harsh, arrhythmic, and conceptual, but not pedantically so. The group bio uses phrases like "sculptural personification," but the experience is enthralling even for people who don't think or talk like that." - Sam Lefebre , from http://www.sfweekly.com/2014-05-28/music/styrofoam-sanchez-eagulls-jealousy-hidden-agenda/full/
