/ˈbär, sto͞ol astrəˌnôt/
Barstool Astronaut is a musician/composer based in Raleigh, NC who blends the sounds and inspirations of ambient, downtempo, and IDM electronic music. The instrumental soundscape includes percussion, acoustic and electronic drumming, as well as synthesizers, samples, and piano.
The sound is dynamic: at times an ambient piece offering solace, while at other times it encompasses energetic and complex rhythms that demand the listener’s attention (often in the same track). To date, Barstool Astronaut has created 5 albums, the last of which, “Space Tourism”, released on November 15th, 2022.
