WE ARE KYN
KYN was born out of the shared experiences of Josh Casey and Yari Bundy during and after graduating from Mills College in Oakland, CA. Both came to music later in life, Yari beginning with djing and turntablism in highschool and Josh with classical piano, music production and djing while attending community college. Since their formation in 2015, KYN has been honing a sound that evokes emotional minimalism, visceral imagery and deep introspection. Since releasing their debut EP Worlds in April 2016, they have been performing around the Bay Area, collaborating with dancers, and touring in the US and overseas. After returning from Berlin in November 2016 from a crowdfunded project to attend the Ableton Loop Conference, they were reinvigorated and inspired to create a kind of music that explores themes relating to trauma and anxiety while simultaneously creating addictive grooves and sounds that explore the full spectrum of emotions. Bringing together their education in experimental electronic music from Mills with their love of rhythm and atmosphere, they perform live shows that not only highlight their undeniably infectious chemistry but their ability to create immersive sonic landscapes that seamlessly maneuver between sound design, dance and ambient music.
