Ewan chats to Holy Nothing ahead of their SXSW debut set.

Directly from Porto, Portugal, this electronic music trio travels deep into the exploration and experimentation of what a lab full of synthesisers and grooveboxes can produce. When mixing tropical rhythms with industrial vocoders or diving danceable grooves deep into hypnotic ambiences, everything seems possible and unexpected in the hypertextual language of this band.

So it is stated by their debut album ‘Hypertext’. The sum up of a year of exploration, experimentation, failure and accomplishment, brought up by the creative madness of their peculiar rehearsal and composition sessions.

This musical exploration is charged even further by the live projections created specifically to make the links between the knots. Music and video are symbiotically performed to generate a profoundly immersive voyage.

Ewan talks to Producer Ross Dinerstein, Director Jason Cohen, and Compaq Co-Founder Rod Canion from the documentary film ‘Silicon Cowboys’.

Launched in 1982 by three friends in a Houston diner, Compaq Computer set out to build a portable PC to take on IBM, the world’s most powerful tech company. Many had tried cloning the industry leader’s code, only to be trounced by IBM and its high-priced lawyers. Silicon Cowboys explores the remarkable David vs. Goliath story, and eventual demise, of Compaq, an unlikely upstart who altered the future of computing and helped shape the world as we know it today. Directed by Oscar-nominated director Jason Cohen, the film offers a fresh look at the explosive rise of the 1980′s PC industry and is a refreshing alternative to the familiar narratives of Jobs, Gates, and Zuckerberg.
