Episode Summary

The Great Mundane
It's still early in the evening as local beatmaker/producer Jeffrey Acciaioli (the Great Mundane) lets a stream of rippling synth notes gush from his keyboard. A crowd of friends chant along in unison, and the minimalist backbeat is kept in check by "Uncle Joe" Acciaioli and Ian O'Brien supporting on guitar and drums, respectively. For "You Say So," a fragmented, jazzy hip-hop groove, our cameras rolled as the fading daylight cast a murky shadow over the room, adding an ominous feel to the crowd's warbled bellows. In a genre sometimes limited by its ability to translate to a live setting, the Great Mundane defies the stereotype of electronic musicians as mere button-pushers, pulling off a truly interesting and engaging performance that left us wanting to hear more. His spooky electronica lives and breathes in the moment, resounding with a dynamic presence in the fitting venue of his cramped, dimly-lit living space (a place he's "definitely trying to move out of" in the near future). "I think it really captured what was happening at that time," he recalls, referring to the sounds emanating from the darkened corners of his apartment, "that’s the kind of neighborhood, you know-- I've got some crazy neighbors."moreless
