Tau Tau New York, NY alumni
Tau Tau is New York-based multi-instrumentalist, composer, and Forbes 30 Under 30 listee Conrad Tao, who constructs proudly synthetic and unabashedly heartfelt pop out of monolithic synth patches, iPhone apps, YouTube videos, GarageBand, sonic detritus, and a trusty Casio Privia PX-330. His first album, Eyelids, made up of sugared melodies, internet horoscopes, and ASCII poetry, is both “a reaction to personal events and a love letter to an ever-evolving, constantly chaotic digital culture – an attempt to marry the personal and universal in an immediate way.”
Conrad also records under the name Ribbons and Bows, where he takes a spin at the noisy side. Ribbons and Bows is halfway to Sleigh Bells with the fader cranked to 11. Ribbons and Bows makes trash pop for today’s disposable world.
