Photay is the talented electronic musician and fellow Hudson Valley native Evan Shornstein. He has done a handful of select performances with in-depth full-band orchestrations of his electronic music and I must say it's really unbelievable. For starters it's pretty rare to see ten young people on stage in an indie band at all in this age of DJs and four-piece rock groups. On top of that there is just something special about hearing this fantastic electronic music brought to life by the human touch.

Anyway, I got to record the very first Photay Ensemble performance and it still sticks in my memory as a really special night of live music.
