Beartrap
Mind is a Bay Area based duo consisting of musician/composers Adam Landfair and Andrew Ferren. They met in New York City in 2001 and soon became friends, realizing their common interest in esoteric philosophy, jazz, conspiracy theories, funk, and electronic music. Soon after their meeting, the two musicians began working with computers and analog electronics to augment, inspire, create, and deconstruct their music. Within months both were performing their unique brands of improvised electro-acoustic music throughout New York. Meeting again on the west coast in 2006, the two musicians began working on Beartrap Mind, melding modern improvisation with electronic wizardry. Their influences are vast and on any given day could range from bird calls to Franz Bardon, J.Dilla to W.S. Burroughs, and Bismilan Khan to Hazrat Inayat Khan
