Audio/visual collaboration between composer/keyboardist Thollem Electric and video artist ACVilla.
Extending beyond his acoustic piano work, Thollem Electric incorporates noise and effects into an already extremely eclectic array of possibilities.
His newest solo electric albums ‘Operation Sunbeam‘ and ‘Machine In The Ghost‘, plus his on-going soundtrack work with ‘Who Are U.S.‘, displays a seemingly endless array of wild creativity with startling results.
“Thollem Electric might be a musician, or he might be some kind of wizard scientist… the experience might melt your mind.”
— The Denver Westword
“Fluid keys pulverization”
— Brad Cohan, Spin Magazine
“An attractively extreme viewpoint”
— Greg Burk, LA Times
“An intense and virtuosic keyboardist”
— TimeOut, NY
“The kind of fiercely independent artist the world needs more of”
ACVilla’s work focuses the eye on the micro within the macro and vice versa, the parallels of reality shaping and defining each moment of our lives within and without our perception. A reminder to be and not just do, to experience the wonder in the everyday.
“Coming out from the theater, it was like the world around me was
framed in a different way.”
— Louise Jarmilowicz (Visual Artist, San Francisco)
“…making me take notice of beauty I would probably walk past while making up something to worry about in my head. Great work.”
— Matthew Lux (Musician, Chicago)
