MONOPOLY CHILD STAR SEARCHERS (ex-The Skaters with James Ferraro)

Charles Berlitz, former agent for boy band, The Skaters, has been inventing landscape music for years, and runs his own productions company called PACIFIC CITY SOUND VISIONS. Engelbert and Humpledinck have raved that: `Monopoly Child Star Searchers is a fusion music, but not a fusion of genres of music, but t…hat of a fusion of the Stars, the Sun, and the Tschungle!` He has albums out on Olde English Spelling Bee, Rose City Aquariums Unlimited, and Blauwe Oceanic Records. Charles will be presenting to the East Coast his new sound `StarSwept`, which he explains as: “A memory blast of the beauty and evil that was experienced at the Spectacle of Light Festival in Salt Lake City 1988.” Expect immediate Hallucination. (Alec Baldwin)”


“(…) like Caspar David Friedrich, i bow my head in deep mahalo and aloha…. because there, at Kealakekua, i learned how important beauty is. it is that deep, beautiful pallet of colors. that heart of the metaphorical Cetacean Nation. that collection of water, coral reefs, cliffs, spirit, animals, salt, trees and waves. which made me resonate myself with the artist. it’s an egg, the artist that radiates either mystical realities or actual facts. sprung from the Olde Saturn. my music is a landscape. a ku’ono for your mind to hike in. for the exploration of a personal jungle. for the atonement of a world out there, above there, in there. a spring of harmonies. a bay of sound. a natural and abstract composition, rooted in romance and subconsciousness. Dolphins Into The Future has released albums on Kraak, Notnotfun and Release The Bats, and has upcoming releases on Aguirre, Experimedia, and Olde English Spelling Bee.”

“Filmmaker and musician Floris Vanhoof (Belgium, 1982) approaches the celluloid of his films and the electronic components of his instruments closely. Electronic circuits are vivified inspired by the liveliness of what happened around structural film and West Coast Free- and Tape music. With an arrangement of electronic gear and film- or slide projectors he searches for the essence and potential of multi media performance. Every concert becomes a hybrid form of projected images, an electronic patchwork and field recorded sounds. After releases on Breaking World Records and Taped Sounds his Vinyl debute came out on Ultra Eczema. A split with Dolphins Into The Future will be released by Experimedia and he’s now recording for Kraak.”


“Family Underground is a duo out of Copenhagen- Denmark. Formed as a trio in 2000 under the name F,.L.O.W.E.R- Aquiring the name FU in 2003, in recognition of the need to express a new way to bend and mend the traditions of psychic sound wich has been the creative core in the band. Weaving intricate layers of electric storms always with the love for pulsing rhythms. Inspiration and motivation throughout the whole existence of FU has been the will to try and explore some of the same questions what others before us has asked.”
