MACHINE 475 PERSONNEL

Richard Lewis, mastermind and professor, more nurturing than he cares to admit, has finally learned the vocoder, which had been a lifelong goal. He was once in the 80's pop group Movieland (album and video on RCA records, if you can find them). He was also part of the influential cult band called the Jellies. Two old singles by the Jellies became so popular that they have recently been re-released: "Jive Baby On A Saturday Night" and "The Conversation".

Danielle Meara, sitar and keyboards. Danielle studied hindustani music at Salem State University and graduated with a degree in music in 2011. She has been composing music since the age of 13. www.evor.com/fragilefear/

Dan "Purple" Hayes, master of the theremin and purveyour of the turntables, has been a part of the underground dance music scene since the 1990's, when he worked at the Paradise and M-80 nightclubs and frequented the Axis, Avalon, and Aria nightclubs in Boston. At the time, DJ Purple Hayes was known for his sets at many Boston after-hours parties. www.myspace.com/purplehayes8/music
