Snakes and Stars is the new landmark project of longtime friends and collaborators Michael Travis (The String Cheese Incident) and Aaron Johnston (Brazilian Girls, David Byrne’s American Utopia).
Two of music’s top drummers with a combined 60 years experience, Travis and Johnston explore various idioms of electronic and dance music in a live, improvisational format. Utilizing vocals, synthesizers, electronic pads and triggers, a drum kit, guitar, bass and samples, they create a one-of-a-kind musical experience in the moment. The playful interaction between the two artists, audience and the surrounding energy collectively created is what guides the music, and no two shows are ever the same.
Snakes & Stars represents a leap forward in today’s live music scene as it finds inspiration in deep electronic roots from minimal, trance, techno and house to contemporary electronic stylings like trap and dubstep, mixing traditional drumming with progressive sounds.
