With SPECIAL GUEST:
A special solo performance by PSYCHE OF PSYCHE CORPORATION. Psyche Corporation is based from New York City, a dark fairytale electro rock music project named after a dream manufacture group from a future where widespread neural implants have allowed people to jack their nerve endings directly into the internet and download dreams. Songs deal in dystopian themes as well as the surreal psychological landscapes of sleeping minds. The musical style spans genres; a recent song has mixed tribal singing with classical piano while embedding poliovirus DNA into its percussion. Their sound is best described as a mix of trip-hop electro-industrial rock and alternative world music.
Psyche Corp. is a favorite amongst north eastern steampunk conventions/events, renaissance festivals, gothic balls, and anime-friendly conventions. Notably, they’ve performed at Dracula’s Ball in Philadelphia for their Halloween 2011 event, Fan EXPO (which annually draws about 60,000 patrons) in Toronto as the headlining musical guest for their steampunk programming in August 2010, and Dances of Vice’s Comic-Con afterparty in 2011. They’ve also performed at every Wicked Faire since 2009 (this is an annual combination alt pagan scifi renaissance faire convention in NJ that currently draws about 3,000 or more patrons per year), and every Steampunk World’s Fair since the first iteration in 2010. They’ve also become regulars at Arisia (sci fi con in Boston, MA) and TempleCon (sci fi con in Warwick, RI). More recently, Psyche Corp. was the headlining musical act for Ikkicon (a major anime convention) in Austin, TX for December 2012. Their performances as of 2012 have received film coverage by the Discovery Channel and Travel Channel, among others.
