Formed in 2005, conceived and compiled by long-time electronic artist and 8-bit composer Jeremy Kolosine (a.k.a. Receptors), the 8-BIT OPERATORS collective features some of the top 8-bit artists from North America, South America, Asia, and Europe, including inventors of the compositional 8-bit tools themselves. This is the original hardware 8-bit Kraftwerk and Beatles cover project, no relation to the comedic general-midi-files piped thru an emulator as are other '8-bit covers' on Youtube and elsewhere! Check the internationally released 8-Bit Operators albums on Astralwerks/EMI/ReceptorsMusic available on iTunes and Amazon.

Futurisk Play

Futurisk "Player Piano" Now on iTunes!
FUTURISK was a pioneering electro-punk group that recorded and performed in the pre-midi era of the early '80's. They had two vinyl releases that sold out, a legendary live show and some videos, but for a number of reasons by 1984 Futurisk was history. Eventually the main core of Futurisk would be the Kolosine/Hess/Howard line up, but in '79 when a teenage Jeremy Kolosine won studio time & money in a competition with his drum-machine triggered guitar-synth act called 'Clark Humphrey & Futurisk', he decided to form a band around the name to record a more punk release "The Sound of Futurism 1980/Army Now". It was an ambivalent anti-war anthem, with Jack Howard on drums, Frank Lardino on synth and Kolosine on vocals and guitar synth. In '81, Kolosine, who had gotten absorbed in a new synth/sequencer replaced Lardino with synthesist/recordist Richard Hess who had a myriad collection of Moogs, Oberhieims and KATs,etc. and the line up for the "Player Piano EP" was cast. The EP, like the live show, was a strange blend of punk/minimalist/disco influenced electro pop, with drum-machine triggered synths and often frantic real drums all led by Kolosine's schizophrenic Bowie/Ferry/Foxx adulations (and about 20 seconds of punk-funk guitar). It was recorded by Rich and the band in the rooms of Ron K's house.The drum sound, gotten in a bathroom, rocks, even today. Reportedly, Futurisk may have been the 1st synth-punk band in the American South...or something, and 1981's track 'Push Me Pull You (pt. 2)' was an early pre-'Rockit' excursion into electro-funk.
In 2003 LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy gave a complimentary wink to Futurisk by using the track on the delightful Colette # 5 DFA Comp CD. In 2007 an unreleased 1982 version of the track "Meteoright" was included on Minimal Wave's "Found Tapes" vinyl LP. Also OUT NOW! Minimal Wave presents the long awaited 30th anniversary release by Futurisk.

Receptors Play

From 2003 thru 2011 RECEPTORS, led by electronic artist/producer/gearhead Jeremy Kolosine, aka Ksine(founder of electro pioneers Futurisk, and 8-bit/micro-chipmusic vanguards 8-Bit Operators, among other projects) stood equipped with GameBoys & Nintendo DS (running mainly the LSDJ, Nanoloop, and Korg DS-10 cartridges) but also included Sidstation, occasional CircuitBends, and vocoded 12-bit stylophonic walkstations. Receptors performed at NYC's legendary Blip Fest, CMJ and Bent Festivals, showcased at Austin, Texas' SXSW Festival and Iceland's Airwaves Fest, and in 2007 Jeremy Kolosine performed the first ever circuit-bent performance(Leopold Mozart's "Toy Symphony")with a full symphony orchestra (The Roanoke Symphony). The debut 7" EP "Controller Array" was released in 2005. In 2007 the critically acclaimed ReceptorsMusic compilation "8-Bit Operators - The Music of Kraftwerk" was released on Astralwerks/EMI (Check out the Receptors interview on National Public Radio). That same year, The DFA's James Murphy commissioned Receptors to produce a set of unique Real ringtones for LCD Soundsystem's "Sound Of Silver" album release. The ringtunes , which are re-interpretations of all 9 tracks on the hit album, were arranged and created in 8-bit fashion on the gameboy synth. In 2008 Receptors released 2 albums of tracks produced on the Nintendo DS, including the first full-length release by an artist on the Korg DS-10 titled "groKwork". In 2009, Jeremy completed construction of "21st Century Retro-Futurists", an audio/video installation for The Taubman Museum, and joined the Blip Fest Europe / 8bitpeoples tour of Denmark and Poland (Era New Horizon Film Festival.)On 09/09/09 the Kolosine-curated 8-Bit Operators' "WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD" Beatles Tribute was released. Receptors closed out 2009 with the release of the USER Deluxe EP on the world-renowned 8bitpeoples chip-music label. In 2010, the Handheld Heroes label released Receptors' final album SLEEPER CD/DL again featuring tracks utilizing solely the Nintendo DS / Korg DS-10. In 2011 Jeremy Kolosine embarked on an analog/ digital/ multi-instrumental compositional project intended for release in 2012.

Ksine 1999 - 2002 Play

Ksine's turn of the century solo projects. Utilizing mostly handheld digital devices triggering analog synths with treated guitars. 1999's "99 (Red Window)" album was an electro-lounge oddity, and the "dark-ambient Christmas" collection (2000 thru 2002), was a triptych of darker, more somber, experimental 'holiday' music that could be listened to year-round. Many of the loosely based themes are obvious, others more sublime. Homepage: http://receptorsmusic.com

Shakespace 1997 - 2001 Play

The Blue Ridge Mountains were an unlikely place to find a band like Shakespace. Their sound was a mixture of heavy melodic guitars, experimental ambient synths, with male and female vocals, a sound often revealing the band's shoegazer and proto-goth influences .
Shakespace formed in early '96, and after many enthusiastically recieved shows, they recorded their 1st full-length CD. Released In 1998, the self titled debut album was a space rock, lo-fi collection of infectious dream-pop tracks.
Throughout the late 90's, Shakespace's Michelle Ferguson would also co-host the 'No Phase Artspace' shows, multi-media art and music events in which artists and groups from across the US performed and contributed work.
Shakespace's 2nd CD ,'Air Sign Orange' , released in late 2000 on Indianapolis' Happy Couples Records, had more of a post-punk goth-rock feel.
'This Sleeping Heart' was Shakespace's final full-length CD offering. Recorded throughout 2001 during the band's break-up, the album emerged as dark and cynical experimental pop.
