Simon C. F. Yu’s The Exotic Experiment is a futuristic ensemble that provides audiences with a multidimensional media experience. The band features a host of multitalented musicians who specialize in breaking new artistic ground. Tenor saxophonist Sean Nowell pushes the timbral boundaries of the saxophone by using cutting edge multi-effect pedals. Violinist Tomoko Omura takes her violin to another dimension using wah-wah and whammy pedals. Bassist Evan Marien has a magic ring that controls wireless dubstep effects and earth-shaking grooves, and drummer Tobias Ralph is a master of electronica and drum and bass beats.
This group of ambitious artists is led by the human multi-tasking machine Simon C.F. Yu, who composes and arranges the band’s songs, shoots the video and photos, manipulates the video projections, and controls the laptop, iPads, and Kinect platform simultaneously to create the ultimate audio-visual experience.
