BUSY BEDS- MUSIC PRODUCTION
Busy Beds is the project of Tyler Agnew, also of Everyday Life and Blue Plutos. The project’s new EP, The Internet is the Real World, veers in an entirely new direction — one where ethereal soundscapes and lush samples are incorporated. Like Everyday Life or Blue Plutos there’s an incorporation of serene folk-minded acoustics, but Busy Beds seems to be more embracing of the electronic side, which perfectly matches ASTC's music style and influences. The result is an unpredictable soundtrack, a rare balance that captures several audiences attention.

li sabas - musician
LI is a literary, visual, and performing artist born & residing in New York. His multidisciplinary body of work draws from a wide array of mentorships and self-learning, which uniquely culminate into a plethora of poetry, compositions, film, and more. The eclecticism of LI's work does not take away from his philosophical axiality; on the contrary, the diversity of styles and tones LI internalizes centers around his multifarious comprehension of self. Thus, LI's work documents an exploration of the infinite question: "what is 'I,' & why?"
