Syntax Error biography
There are several musical projects named Syntax Error.
(1) An experimental music and media project based in Toronto, Canada.
Members: Isosceles_CAT (Programming, Sequencing, Sound Design) & Jaf (Bass, Sound Design, Loops)
They use whatever objects, instruments, hardware & software they can find, build or buy to create music and explore interesting sounds.

(3) Syntax Error
syntax error started DJing in 1998 with Drum n Bass and Psychedelic Trance in several underground clubs. His musicstyle changed to the "4x4 movers" and was fixed after he visited the Tresor Club in Berlin for the first time in end of 1998. Until now he played in several stations for example the Fusion-Club in Münster or Tresor- Berlin. His style is a kind of abstract electronic shit and groovy experimental stupid rubbish. He has big preferences for hard bumping groovy beats, strange noizy synths and deep distored organ-basses. Check out his "some fucking rubbish" live PA, which is now available to be played in those dark dingy dungeons. He is also known as the mechanoid disruptor...Syntax beam me error!!!
Aliases: Christian Schachta, Snork

They released two albums, the first "tigerns natt" (Night of the Tiger) and then, yes, another album called: Hejdå Hallå (Goodbye Hello). All albums featuring many songs that are good and or even better.
(5) Another example of a Syntax Error is the one who recorded various types of breakbeat electronica (often with a very old school feel) for the Tzanda label at the start of the century: his raucous live sets would often be performed in front of a wall-sized naked full-frontal photograph of himself. Syntax Error used used an old apple 64 k mac running the pre audio version of Cubase, a cz100, Roland d110, boss dr660? a modified Roland TR505, Casio FZ1 and a collection of guitar pedals. Syntax Error now records and performs under the name "dalsyn" & "asbo11" (31/05/2007 by Syntax Error AKA Dalsyn).
