Booksy is an underground electronic music project recording in Brooklyn, NY. A native of NYC and a founding member of Fictions, in his solo work Booksy explores a sonic topology flowing between skittering nomadic techno/electro and primal drone constellations. Modular and non-modular analog and digital synths, samplers, and drum machines were assembled for these recordings, which were all conducted and recorded in live takes.

During the embryonic development of the modern musical synthesizer, Morton Subotnick envisioned a day in which an individual could become the audience, the director, and the performer of a musical work all at once. The belief was that a device could exist that one could explore a sonic space with in real time and move from “point to point” within this space guided by feelings, emotions, or any other perturbation of the mind. With the creation of such a device (the “synthesizer”) in 1963, Subtonick’s idea became reality however alternative interpretations of its utility also emerged. With time, the “synthesizer” came to predominately be an instrument with which equal tempered, melodic music was created, recorded, and distributed among the masses. A select few have, however chosen to investigate and develop the concept closer to Subotnick’s original vision of the man-machine interaction. adamon is Damon Mar’s pursuit of this.
