Former State of Being guitarist/keyboardist Michael Demagall has spawned a pair of new projects. Appropriately enough, each project explores one of his instruments: Q is a guitar-based project, while Syn explores a funkier electronic realm.

State of Being founding member Christopher Foldi has started a new electronic project called frigiD touch. From Christopher, "The vibe is retro/future/club/euro, combining the glitch and glitz of Goldfrapp with the allure of Bryan Ferry and futurism of Gary Numan." Check out the frigid touch on myspace for the latest material, including a cover of the Classics IV's [Spooky].


Christopher Foldi is playing with a new live group called The Deadward Goreys. Their debut gig was September 29 at Cleveland Public Theatre. Their next show is Friday July 25 as part of Ingenuity Festival 2008. Check out the Deadward Goreys' myspace for more information, music and photos.
