Subnautic is the creation of two San Francisco
based jazz musicians, pianist/keyboardist Jacob
Elijah Aginsky and drummer Eric Garland.
This project is best described as “Acoustic Trip-
Hop”, with live drum&bass, downtempo-jungle
and acid-jazz thrown in for good measure.
After being nominated by the SF Weekly for a
WAMMIE for BEST NEW JAZZ GROUP in
10/00, keyboardist Jacob Elijah Aginsky said in
an interview “ . . . that’s what’s so exciting about
Subnautic is that it’s the music of the day while
retaining the integrity and spirit of creative
improvisation. We play to a packed house at
Bruno’s and it’s like a concert, and then we
pack up and go play the same music at the
chill-out room of a rave and everyone’s dancing.
.” Drummer Eric Garland agreed. “What we’re
trying to do is create a defined musical space”,
he says. “It doesn’t matter wether we’re
classified under acoustic trip-hop or live down-
tempo . . if people come away from our shows
with a sense of having travelled somewhere,
then that’s all we need.” (SFWv1, 10/00)
Subnautic has played extensively throughout
the San Francisco Bay Area, and boasts a large
and devoted following.
