Lucky Dragons

Lucky Dragons are a duo, originally from the great city of Providence. Their music is best described (by me at least) as a wide tapestry of digitally manipulated sound, with a heavy component of social and musical experimentation. There's hard science behind the processes involved in making the final sound, which you can learn about in the video (and other videos online, if you choose to search them out), but if you want this layman's simple synopsis, it's great music made by people conducting electricity through touching one another. Instruments, digital/audio converters, and skin are used to create otherworldly sonic textures. Their music is very appealing to me, not only because of the raw sounds created (which may be very beautiful), but because of the process used to make the music. It's been some time since I've seen the crossroad of man and computer represented as well as with Lucky Dragons.
