MAKEUP & VANITY SET
MAKEUP AND VANITY SET (Telefuture Records/USA) is an American fantasy-arpeggio band. Over the past decade, MAVS has scored two films and released ten albums, including an 8-bit remix of the first PROTOMEN record, the CHARLES PARK TRILOGY and 88:88. During that time, the band evolved into a collaboration between synthesist Matthew Pusti, drummer Christian Williams, and filmmaker Joey Ciccoline. MAVS has worked and performed with PILOTPRIEST, INFINITY SHRED, BIG BLACK DELTA, SONOIO, ANAMANAGUCHI and THE PROTOMEN. The film score featured in 88:88 accompanied the film to the Venice International Film Festival, a selection of director Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien) and actor Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, Shame).
While known for extensively varied styles of music, Carl Peczynski, aka Rolly Mingwald, pulls inspiration from the culture he loved growing up - the music, the films, the cars - “80s everything” as he puts it. As well as taking inspiration from the past, he looks to the present and beyond; to those creating contemporary music modeled after decades-old hardware and music genres.
