mjf @ First Street (ask Garden Stage)

m.oe keyboards, loopers, sample pads 

“Music to make the body move and the mind wander.” 

An alumnus from the mjf Soundcheck programme, keyboardist M.oe creates piano-centred, jazz-inspired harmonies, supported by gritty, glitchy beats with complex grooves and driving rhythms. 

He likens the sound to an 808 synthesiser that suddenly became sentient, forcing its way out of the drum machine and into the real world whilst the soundtrack of its life plays in the background. M.oe’s tracks are thematically open and ambient, and in a live context he adds improvisation on resonant bass synths played 4 octaves too high… 

M.oe’s aspirations are to express what can’t be verbalised, and to invite people to connect with that through movement and thought, exploring the increasingly blurred lines of the human experience.
