About Me

Psychaudio is a renegade music collective based in New York City. Lead by Omercan Sakar on drums and Martin Seiler on Saxophone, Psychaudio implements experimental electronics into their acoustic setup of Trumpet, Saxophone, Piano, Bass, and Drums.

Their signature sound, dark and brooding as the bowels of a city at night that is in fact anything but asleep, reflects the real New York as well as the personalities of each of the band members. Caleb McMahon on trumpet, Eva Lawitts on bass, and the pianist Vladan Mijatovic comprise the band’s line up of NYC’s forefront music pioneers along with Martin and Omer.

Their debut album, „Connect“, contains original compositions shaped by late night gigs at Nublu, a legendary New York underground venue. It’s a mirror of the city, the musicians, and where art is headed.

An acoustic and electronic display of New York as well as the world, „Connect“ came out of the five musicians involved, and outgrew the sum of it’s parts: Eva Lawitts, a Brooklyn native and lifetime New Yorker. Martin Seiler, born and raised in Germany, one of Europe’s highly acclaimed Jazz Saxophonists. Omercan Sakar, drummer from Turkey, an experimental entrepreneur in music, a Brooklynite for a decade.. Caleb McMahon from Saint Paul, Minnesota, NYC’s wild card on Trumpet and Electronics. And Vladan Mijatovic, a Carnegie Hall performing Pianist and virtuoso sound designer from Serbia.

Between those five musicians in Psychaudio, a storm brewed up that was captured on tape, and is being released into the world on their debut album „Connect“.

My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-11-09

Jazz is open waters... When you jump in, you find yourself immediately in to the vast complexity or simplicity of the reflections of your consciousness and the consciousness of the others who are also in the water flowing and floating around... If you are lucky enough to start understanding the freedom of expression and freedom of transforming your thoughts, emotions or experiences, you will find yourself dancing on a wild wave or floating on a silent river peacefully, enjoying the moment you are in and interacting with your surroundings. There you are, you find yourself in the open waters... Enjoy and improvise...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
