Press release:

Brainstatik to Perform Free Concert at New Hope Arts

Stockton, NJ (Nov. 29, 2006) -- The instrumental progressive rock
band Brainstatik will perform a free concert -- two full hours of
all new improvisational "Holiday Music from Outer Space" -- on
Sunday, December 17 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the New Hope Arts
building, corner of Bridge and Stockton Streets (upstairs) in New Hope, PA. There is no admission fee.

Brainstatik features Stockton, NJ guitarist Robert Burger on guitar
and guitar-synthesizer. Burger's solo project "The Gak Omek" has
released two albums, The Return of the All-Powerful Light Beings
(Fossil Records) and Alien Eye. Described as a progressive rock
interpretation of ancient and modern mysteries, the Return of the
All-Powerful Light Beingsâ is one of the most imaginative new
offerings in the progressive rock (prog rock) style. Burger's style
has been compared to Robert Fripp, Steve Hackett, David Torn, and
Pat Metheny. The new CD takes cerebral music to a new level by
incorporating majestic guitar playing, electronic percussion, and
cosmic synth sounds. The Return of the All-Powerful Light Beings was
voted one of the Top 20 Progressive Rock Albums of 2004 by
Progressive Soundscapes Radio, Sea of Tranquility, Nucleus, and
Radio Gnome.

Mike Hunter of Trenton, NJ plays the 12-string Warr touch guitar and
6-string electric with South Jersey based Irish traditional/ Celtic
rock group The Stone Soup Band, as well as his solo ambient drone
music under the "Ombient" moniker. His music has been described as
ambient like the random symmetry of wind chimes, the sound of
vehicles moving on some far distant highway, and the warm hum of
high tension power lines.

Glenn Robitaille, a resident of Dunellen, NJ plays acoustic and
electronic drums. Glenn's style includes a love for odd time
signatures, time changes, polyrhythms, and the pallet of sounds
available through electronic drums. In previous lives he played
drums for Solar Circus, The Callipygian Blues Band, and Gangster

Jim Silvestri of Wood-Ridge, NJ has been playing bass for 30 years.
Jim started his musical career with the classic rock band Rushlight
in the late 70s. He also appeared with The John Michel Orchestra,
The Stardreamers, The All Star Jazz Orchestra and was a founding
member of the progressive rock band Ghosts on the Skyline.

George Mahlberg lives in the Manayunk area of Philadelphia, PA. When
not installing and training users of editorial publishing systems,
he hosts a weekly radio program, Nocturnal Transmissions, on WPRB-FM
103.3 in Princeton, or can be found simply sitting under the stars
and pondering the vastness of the Cosmos. A multi-instrumentali st,
George performs on a Chapman Stick Bass, sitar, Theremin, and his
venerable BC
Rich Eagle bass.

Brainstatik will be joined by a very special guest Cyndee Lee Rule
of Trevose, PA on violin. With her 5 string Viper Violin, Cyndee Lee
Rule has performed with such legendary spacerock musicians as
Hawkwind's Harvey Bainbridge and Gong's Tim Blake. She has toured in
the UK and has performed at the famous Melkweg Club in Amsterdam.
She also performs with Philly-area spacerock band Scattered Planets,
and is working on tracks for Scattered Planets' upcoming CD, "Deep
Space Psychosis". Cyndee has also collaborated through the internet
with various artists, including Systems Theory and Space Mirrors.
Steven Davies-Morris and Greg Amov of Systems Theory were very
instrumental in the production of Cyndee's debut Viper album,

Brainstatik co-founder Ken Palmer, an art director at Bloomberg and
resident of Crosswicks, NJ plays synthesizers and serves as
recording engineer for the band's music. He is the founder and host
of the Cosmic Coffeehouse (, a bi-monthly
event in that showcases unique local musicians. He previously played
keyboards and guitar in the bands E. Echo-K and Liquid Idiot.

Robert J. Burger and Ken Palmer formed Brainstatik in 1995. For the
past eleven years they've recorded and performed completely
improvised and spontaneously composed instrumental music. Their
sound has been influenced by everything from progressive rock,
electronic, and world/ethnic music. For more information, visit

During the concert, attendees can view Works in Wood, a juried
national exhibition featuring more than 125 pieces by 44 artists on
display at New Hope Arts. The exhibition features sculpture, artist
designed furniture and woodturnings by nationally and
internationally recognized woodworkers such as Mira Nakashima of
Nakashima Studios, Phillip Lloyd Powell, Jeffrey Greene and artists
from as far away as California.
