Don't Die is Greg Marasso and Tom Mackerness. Eight years ago, after receiving music degrees and playing in groups like Go National, Fulcrum Break, and the Popesmashers, they began to compose, produce, and perform homemade electro-acoustic soundtracks. The now San Francisco and Sacramento based duo blend downtempo, ambient, electronica, and avante-garde music with conventional instruments.
Greg plays drums, percussion, marimba, keyboards, samplers, and synthesizers. Tom plays bass, violin, effects, voice, computers, melodica, and flute. They combine live recordings with sythesized textures to construct magestic and unusual soundscapes.
Don't Die produce and project videos for their music at art and music events. They have made four albums worth of custom made electronic gypsy duets. Don't Die is always interested in performing at art shows and adding unique sounds to film and video.
