Combining two art students and a derivatives trader into an all-encompassing art project was surely a novelconcept. Autograf — formed by Jake Carpenter, Louis Kha, and Mikul Wing — craft a shimmery mix offuturistic electronica with a D.I.Y. ethos that melds the skills from their former day jobs. The trio put theirtalents together at a gallery exhibition, where Carpenter, a sculptor and painter who worked as a welder in afabrication factory, and Wing, a street artist, created an installation that included a homemade robot.As the electronic music scene reached a certain peak in 2015, the group wanted to bring a level of artistryback to the genre.
After remixing songs by a string of prominent artists like Lorde, Odesza and Pharrell, theyreleased their first original song, “Dream,” a languidly sensual track that recalled their most creative output.A month later, they dropped the electronic disco “Running,” another glittery gem, which featured an originalart piece to accompany the release.
The third track in as many months, “Metaphysical” again featured Autograf-created mixed media artwork, as well as vocals from sultry alt-R&B singer Janelle Kroll.In early 2016, the trio released their debut EP, Future Soup. The release coincided with the opening of theirFuture Factory art space and collective in Chicago, which exhibits works by local artists as well as an 8-foot700-pound sculpture the band created under the same title as their EP, Future Soup
. Autograf is roundingout the year in fine form, having announced a 30+ date North American tour with Goldroom. Flexing theirability to play live at hard ticket venues, the tour will serve as a perfect take off for new music in 2017, in theform of the Future Sauce project.
The first bit of music to come from the project has been the aptly titled‘Future Sauce’ single, premiered by Billboard in October 2016.Autograf’s forward looking philosophy and artistic talents has led them to design their own live show andstage installations, which they hope will revolutionize the world of electronic music.
