Aerate Sound is a Bangalore based A/V duo made up of Joe Panicker and Naquash. Their live sets merge a sound inspired by the sample driven hip-hop/beat culture (think DJ Shadow, JDilla) with video art and visual experiments to create a highly cinematic and immersive experience.
Their debut EP Only For External, in their owns words, is an attempt to capture the space they live in. Aerate Sound employ samples, abstract sonic patterns, field recordings and drum heavy instrumentation to weave a layered soundtrack of their daily lives. They are aided in the attempt by collaborators like Smokey the Ghost and Sandeep Madhavan (of The Burning Deck).
“Only for External” was launched in March 2017 via Consolidate.
