Jason Barnes | HyphenHub Community

Jason Barnes aka Cybrnetx transcends the limitations of music and performance and explores the realm of Transhumanism, and the idea of The Singularity. The human race is destined to evolve beyond its current mental and physical condition and limitations through means of self growth both organically and through technology. The mix of Glitchy sounds inspired by Heavy Bass Music expands across all genres of EDM, and are that of a cyberpunk/post human future. His unique sounds are influenced by work in the field of Artificial intelligence, and Prototype Prosthetics, and is birthed from the symphony of human and machine symbiosis. Over the years we have been involved in the development of advanced prosthetics focused on musical creation as well as advanced AI robots. These elements are are used in his live performance sets whenever possible and bring something new to the table. We are more than ourselves, we are more than thoughts, we are more than energy. We are destined to become fabricated hybrids of machine and organisms.

How the Light Gets In featured drummer Jason Barnes and marathon runner Brian Reynolds. Jason Barnes lost his right arm in a workplace accident. Following the accident he was fitted with a robotic arm developed by Gil Weinberg, founding director of the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology. With two drumsticks situated on his robotic arm, one controlled by Barnes and one by Artificial Intelligence which improvises off Barnes’ drumming, Barnes is able to drum faster than what is humanly possible. Brian Reynolds is a record holding marathon runner who also happens to be a double (below-the-knee) amputee. Reynolds is equipped with carbon fiber running legs, or blades, that allow him to run with ease.
