Brent Amaker and a host of collaborators including Vox Mod, P-Smoov and Frank Correa are set to unleash their multimedia project, Android Amaker, on Nov. 7. More than just an album, Android Amaker is a collection of music, photography, video and fashion all centered around the concept of The Singularity — the moment that humanity and technology merge to form a new kind of life.
To celebrate the release of “Android Amaker,” Amaker and his cohorts are hosting a release show Nov. 7 at Neumos that should provide a unique take on what the future holds. To get a taste of the Android Amaker project, check out “Transported,” a new track released this week that expands upon the bold sounds Amaker and Vox Mod have created with their first single, “I’m The One.” For some more background on the concept of “The Singularity” and Android Amaker’s roots in futurist Raymond Kurzweil’s work, check out Soundposts’ profile of Amaker leading up to his 50th birthday bash earlier this year.
With Amaker’s primary band, Brent Amaker and the Rodeo, on indefinite hiatus, Nov. 7 might be the last chance to catch Amaker live for the foreseeable future. It should be a can’t-miss night at Neumos.
