Michaelmatician maybe one of the most mysterious artists in Dallas. And he's pretty interesting, too: Instead of going by songs and albums, the electronic perfromer releases material as "sound units." And, instead of talking to the public, he has an intermediary known as Jeremy Shingles, who researches Michaelmatician like science on his blog, trying to figure out where Michaelmatician is.

To hear Shingles tell it, Michaelmatician is from the future. Or something. Regardless, it makes for a pretty interesting fantasy that's sure to appeal to fans of science fiction and electro-rock.

But beyond the website and music and a few live shows, it's been fairly difficult to put a face to Michaelmatician -- till now. His first public appearance comes in the form of his music video, which is called "Monitors Off" and is certain to appeal to nerds and Datarock fans. See the music video after the jump.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
