John Freidel is an electronic musician from Lincoln, Nebraska. Freidel currently performs with a stack of hardware synthesizers and drum machines. Freidel’s music frightens you into dancing. The synth tones employed twist melodies in and out, while the bass and drums physically smack you in the chest. All the while, his domineering stage presence, with an ominous glowing costume and visual projections, create a surreal performance. His music brings to mind John Carpenter’s film music as well as current dark synthwave artists Carpenter Brut and Pertubator.
