Falconeer is an instrumental audio/visual project bringing the spectacle back to live music in New Haven, Connecticut. Blending over the top synth pop and retro game influences, Falconeer builds on vintage synthesizers, modified videogame consoles, and a bit of tongue-in-cheek nostalgia for hyperbolic electronic hits of the 80s to make a sound somewhere between Kraftwerk and LCD Soundsystem. As a performance Falconeer uses mechanized sounds, but the human element never leaves the equation. All of the songs have a goal, and the whole production is carried out by one man, live on stage, without the aid of a modern computer. The culmination of years of experimentation with electronics and chasing classic sounds, Falconeer began in earnest in 2017 with a collection of animated and constantly moving tracks that conjure dreams of electric sheep.
