Electronic Memory is a duo composed of Mike Hunter on looped guitar/synth and Ken Palmer on synthesizer. Mike and Ken have performed at the Electro-Music Festival, the New Jersey Festival of Electronic Arts and the Event Horizon concert series, among others. They’ll bring us their mind-expanding style of ambient space music.

Mike Hunter hosts a weekly program of ambient and space music on WPRB in Princeton NJ. Find out more about it here. His workaday title is “Principal Technical Architect – Cloud Realization”, which has to be the coolest job name ever. He also performs solo under the moniker “Ombient”.

Ken Palmer is a graphic artist and Photoshop wiz during the daylight hours, but after dark he morphs into a synth genius. One of his mods has been featured in Keyboard magazine and he performs as a soloist “Pyxl8r”. He also runs a concert series in the Trenton area called Cosmic Coffeehouse. Some of his pieces are available for audition here.
