            The Mutaytor Announces

            New Spring Dates in SoCal,

            Headlined Their Own Stage at Coachella 

Los Angeles – Avant-Guard art scene performance troupe The Mutaytor have announced new spring dates in Southern California including appearances at Pierce College on May 23rd, the Venice Carnivale on June 14th and the West Hollywood Pride Festival on June 21st and 22nd. They were also the only performers with a stage built entirely for them at the world renown Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. This was their second year at Coachella.

The Mutaytor features over 50 thundering drums, pyrotechnics, aerial performers, hi-tech laser projections and visuals, international break-beat science, dangerous stunts and over 15 tribal performers. The Mutaytor's electric stage show is like an auditory psychedelic assault that invades your body then overtakes you into a frenzy of blissful rhythms, tones and beats. Part Blue Man Group, part Stomp with a dash of Cirque Du Soleil, The Mutaytor's visual presentation is one-of-a-kind. Incorporating live swordplay, tribal fire dancers, tesla coils and drums from 4 continents, The Mutaytor spans cultural and historical timelines and beyond.

In 1996, The Mutaytor founder Matty Nash’s musical journey was forever altered by his first trip to the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock City, Nevada. Gaining inspiration from the experience of tribal drummers, fire dancers, body painters, and martial artists he returned to LA with a new sense of purpose. Over the next two years, Matty built a monstrous flame-throwing drum set and began to create tribal oriented rhythms, with enough groove to get people to dance. In 1998 he performed his first solo-drum show at Burning Man. The crowd took on a life of it’s own, and without prompting started dancing, stripping their clothing, playing with fire, and otherwise expressing themselves creatively. He termed this process of transforming his audience into dancing fiends “mutayting” and thus, The Mutaytor was born. For the first 2 years, The Mutaytor was a solo drum set act.

As the years progressed, Matty added more unique elements to the Mutaytor’s show: live DJ’s, fire performers, a flame-throwing drum kit with flaming drumsticks, performance art, tribal dancers, aerial artists, martial arts, hoop dancers, and dangerous stunts. Taking a page from Cirque du Soleil, he created a highly visual and interactive stage show that completely transforms every venue and audience. In 2000, The Mutaytor performed with tesla coil performance artist Doctor Megavolt (Dr. Austin Richards). This legendary concert placed Matty into a new realm of drumming history, as he performed on his drum set inside of a steel cage which was struck by 1.3 million volts of lightning courtesy of Dr. Megavolt’s tesla coil.

The first Mutaytor CD, Keepin’ It Surreal was released independently in 2001 and featured Matty’s drum music, as well as collaborations with DJ Satan on electronics. It was a blend of the tribal drums meeting electronic that have become staples of The Mutaytor sound.

In 2002, The Mutaytor started to break through the L.A. underground rave scene into more mainstream audiences. They headlined the City of West Hollywood’s Halloween Carnaval and Parade to an audience of over 300,000 people. The Mutaytor were also featured artists both days at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to an audience of 60,000. Under Matty’s direction, his group also began to use their music and visual performance to promote health and well-being by performing music therapy and education shows. The group was honored to perform for 2500 deaf students at Gallaudet University in Washington DC, UCLA’s World of SacredMusic Festival, CSULA’s Summer Bridge Program, Special Olympics Southern California, and many other civic and school events. They released their critically acclaimed second CD Island of Misfit Psience in July 2002.

The Mutaytor team just finished their new DVD, How To Change Civilians into Rock Stars and their new CD E:Ching – Mutayshuns Volume Four that are available as a two disk set. The Mutaytor will also be featured in several documentaries. The Mutaytor’s upcoming Southern California dates follow, come and get Mutayted!
