If So, What? Music

Photay (Evan Shornstein) uses keyboards, sampling and loops to create future/electronic/funk that tells a story of the future of the global environmentalist movement. Photay’s debut full-length Onism is a reflection of tension in an age of climate change and social media addiction. The album's name comes from the term ‘onism,’ invented by pseudo-linguist John Koenig as signifying the frustration of being stuck in just one body that inhabits only one place at a time.
