Electronic music project Digital Geist from Connecticut rewires R.O.T.O.R.
Jun 2016 27

Release first caught on to Digital Geist in early 2003. This electronic music project from Fairfield, Connecticut has pressed on a with a few releases and multiple remixes.

Digital Geist is an enduring project that was spawned in an 1999 viewing of the sci-fi cult film “R.O.T.O.R.” (1987) by Cullen Blaine. The aim was to recreate the badly composed mono voice and background music.

Digital Geist’s Alex K brought forward this idea and has created an entirely new audio experience to the cinematic background of film. It is being offered as a limited edition video with separate music clips on a branded USB stick.

- Since Digital Geist has done mostly instrumental music anyway, it became a really fun challenge by the end and the ROTOR project has inspired me to try this type of audio/video approach again in the future, says Alex, who’s daytime job is post-production engineer.
