glomag - Roland & The Lamprey

from by Blip Festival



Glomag emerged from the NYC chip music scene around the dawn of the 21st century, writing music on Game Boys and performing local shows. It is his contention that his interest in music and art grew out of an early obsession with Astroboy, coupled with the formative experience at 10 of finding a trilobite fossil in his schoolyard. He once pulled a small pile of aluminum cones from a garbage dumpster and attempted to sell them to the Museum of Modern Art. Truth.

His first release on 8bitpeoples, DaMaGe, will soon be followed by Roland and The Lamprey. His work can also be heard on 8 Bit Operators on Astralwerks Records as well as various compilations. He has performed on three continents in clubs, museums, galleries and festivals including sold out shows at the yearly Blip Festival in NYC. His compositions have been presented at Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The American Center in Paris and on television and radio in the US, Belgium and France. His music is a major part of the award winning internet series This Spartan Life which he also writes and directs.
