RECEPTORS® - SLEEPER *DELUXE* EDITION :












BIO:

Since 2003, 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) stands 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' full-length album SLEEPER CD/DL again featuring tracks utilizing solely the Nintendo DS / Korg DS-10. On 12/12/2012 Receptors Music Inc released the 8-BIT OPERATORS' DEVO Tribute: Crack That Chip! conceived/ compiled by Kolosine.

    The 8BitPeoples Showcase event at SXSW 2008 went fabulously and was possibly the most fun chiptunes show, outside of BlipFest, that I’ve ever attended let alone played at! Got to talk further with creators of the ’Reformat The Planet’ documentary of BlipFest 2006 which premiered at SXSW FilmFest and is getting enthusiastic reviews everywhere! There’s an interview running on IFC this week. Here’s the clip, it starts about 5 mins in after the nerdcore and gaming bits:

    Here’s an interesting blog re the chipmusic presence at SXSW:

    8-Bit Operators AvatariBahn T-Shirts (by Poke of C-Men!) out later this week!

    The Blip Fest '06 DVD is out (Receptors has 2 tracks on here)

    ...meantime, me, the son and the bro were at blipfest 07...amazing of course, here's some footage from Attack of the Show
    and some great gameboy camera shots by Yes,robot!

    In Tune monthly goes out to all the high school band classes in the US i'm told, and this month there's an article on chiptunes featuring Bubblyfish and other 8-Bit Operators.


    My circuit-bent performance of Haydn/Mozart's Toy Symphony with the Roanoke Symphony at Virginia Tech was more cohesive and appreciated, i believe, than my Civic Center performance (mostly due to technical difficulties on my end and an unbalanced sound mix). There were many challenges in trying to fit a style of music(circuit-bending) that is governed completely by chaos within the regimen of classical music. Anything I do of this nature again will feature a more melodic chiptune approach which i wasn't able to convey this time handling only the percussive toy sounds of this piece. All in all I had a great time,enjoying David Wiley's wit, and thank all who tolerated my Furbinator mouthing off during Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers"!

    in other related news:

    unreleased Futurisk out on 180 gram vinyl limited edition of 500.

    Ksine's first dark-ambient xmas album from 2000(composed mainly on the handheld Roland PMA midi-stylophone also triggering various synths.) Now on itunes.

    Thanks to all,
    Happy holidays and have a great new year!

    Jeremy

    *December 7th at Salem Civic Ctr, and the 8th at Virginia Tech:
    Jeremy Kolosine | The Roanoke Symphony.

    Jeremy Kolosine and his "Controller Array" of twisted toys will be part of the Holiday programme for Salem Civic Center on 7th Dec, and Virginia Tech on the 8th Dec:

    details regarding the segment:

    Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, David Wiley, Music Director
    Jeremy Kolosine, Technologist
    David Wiley, Conductor & Pianist

    F.J. Haydn & Leopold Mozart "Toy Symphony" [First movement, Allegro]

    Kolosine's parts will basically be the percussive runs originally performed on the toy drum,rattle, triangle, toy trumpet, quail(cuckoo?) and nightingale, but will instead be replaced by electronic circuit-bent & modified toys (ie: the circuit-bent furby will take the nightingale part)

    *11/01/2007: Receptors rocks Reykjavik / NY / Roanoke!
    A productive few weeks on the receptorsmusic front..
    Played the Iceland Airwaves festival! My show on Friday night at the Barinn Airwaves club went good and got a great reception from the small but enthusiastic crowd, i must have had a dozen or more people come up to me and ask about or comment that they dug it. Receptors also got a nice pic and positive mention by Billboard's Katie Hasty in the daily review paper that comes out there (will post soon). All the acts were great that night, but i particularly liked Van Of Two's stuff. Also met members of Iceland's Hellvar who i will be working with soon.
    The next morning to my amazement i woke up early enough to catch the ride to the legendary Blue Lagoon party which was memorable indeed.
    Iceland Airwaves home
    While in Reykjavik i also made the acquaintance of the members of !!! , Annuals and Of Montreal, among others, all of whom were a funny and nice bunch of guys, and showed a curious and sincere interest in the gameboy applications in my music. I also got to catch all of their shows on Saturday.
    Then it was back to NYC where Glomag and Receptors played an 8-Bit Operators '80's gameboy covers war at some giant party opening for the B52's! Us 2 old grey boys have to do that again soon !
    Back in Roanoke, had a quite productive meeting with Roanoke Symphony Director David Wiley regarding a joint project for this season's holiday program(stay tuned for more on that)!

    *09/11/07: new tracks new york :
    Now up here and on the myspace.com/receptorsmusic page... I did yet another version of Hawkwind/Robert Calvert's "Aerospaceage Inferno" done solely on 1 grey gameboy with vocoded midi stylyphone,prompted this time in preparation for a request at this saturday's NYC Tank show I'll be playing at with Glomag, Nullsleep, Touchboy and Dan Winckler. I've been playing this song since i was 15 and to me it's like musical comfort food as is the entire "Captain Lockheed & the Starfighters" album! This saturday I will also do a new Kraftwerk cover ;) and a few new originals from the forthcoming Receptors " LO " CD nearing completion finally...
    ( it seems now that the "Wanna Hold Your Handheld" may be materializing into an 8BitOps title instead ;)

    *08/07/07: 8 bit-friendly skies...music for airplanes!
    It was exciting to discover that Receptors' version of Kraftwerk's 'Trans Europe Express', from the 8-Bit Operators album, was flying thru the skies on the American Airlines inflight 'Buzz' playlist all last month!
