"bran(...)pos is the solo experimental electronic music project of Jake Rodriguez. Given life in 1995, bran(...)pos focuses on real-time sonic plasticization and voice manipulation, achieving these ends with both hardware synthesizers and a custom set of software-based sound grapplers that interface with the real world via tactile control. bran(...)pos' recordings (heavy and heady like Cannibal Corpse doing Xenakis covers) and performances (rounded out with facial interpretations and physical gesture-butoh and Max Fleischer-inspired) are consistently praised for their inventiveness and attention to detail. Come explore the Valley of the Dead as casino with bran(...)pos, gambling wildly with life issues as you teeter on the precipice of securing a good afterlife or another horrid reincarnation. Mix an aural palette that encompasses such disparate elements as The Residents in the late 1970s, Dick Hyman, Stockhausen, Runzelstirn and Gurglestock, and maybe Emerson Lake and Palmer circa Brain Salad Surgery. Assemble this palette with the compositional complexity of Ennio Morricone and Beethoven and you get close to COIN-OP KHEPRI, a collection of tracks ranging from beautifully dense and complex to whimsical, making multiple stops between: folks, place your bets! For fans of: '70s electronic music (Peter Thomas, Gert Wilden), Runzelstirn and Gurglestock, German Shepherds, Caroliner."
