Sci Fi

An Interview with SCI-FI

Sci Fi is a three piece touring instrumental act out of Wilmington, North Carolina that is relentlessly pursuing the quest for human understanding through the art of music. With the positioning of notes and rhythms, they have developed songs that reach out and take hold, and it is their vision to share it with the rest of the world.

Trinumeral Music & Arts Festival 2008

The 2008 Trinumeral Music & Arts Festival was one of the most unorganized, frustrating, ambitious, good time festivals of the year. With so many things that went drastically wrong the solid lineup and smooth production helped ease some of the headaches.
      

        The Trinumeral is a yearly music and arts festival held on the date which the day, month, and year align in an numeric sameness. The festival began on January 1, 2001 - 01/01/01 - and since has expanded to become a multidisciplinary event held every year on synchronized dates. Past Trinumeral events have taken place in Atlanta, Miami, Charlotte and Asheville. Their goal for 2008 was to offer over 40 musical experiences and over 40 visual and performing artists. The three day event took place at the beautiful Deerfields located in Asheville, NC.

FloydFest 2008

Floydfest 7 was, no doubt, a Family Affair.
dgffThe feeling of magic was in the air, as per usual, and some 15,000 music lovers, young and old, enjoyed livng in this enchanted village of whimsy in the heights of the Blue Ridge Mountains for four summer days.

Sci-Fi

Sci Fi finds their roots in jazz, fusion, funk, reggae and house music.

The charismatic trio of improvisational-minded musicians comes alive on stage amidst a richly crafted full-frontal sonic experience with jazzy improv swirling with harmony, melody and hypnotic rhythm.

Their live show is always high-energy and always inclusive (there is no staring-at-your-shoes-onstage allowed). Collectively, the boys in the band demonstrate a natural talent both as musicians and as entertainers. A solid sense of brotherhood and camaraderie defines the overarching energy allowing each live experience to resonate with a perfectly improvisational style, while maintaining their vision to share this live experience with the rest of the world.
