Mike Silverman, known as That 1 Guy, is what his name suggests: just one guy. What's missing from his moniker is his strange array of contraptions and doohickeys he takes on stage, as well as the two hats he wears at the same time. It's hard to tell exactly what he's playing, a contraption of pipes, strings and effects pedals. The result is surprisingly charming, creating a sound similar to house music with a tinge of Gregorian chant, but all performed live instead of pre-recorded and mixed songs. The mystery of how Silverman creates the sounds is all part of the allure, he has said before. In another life, he feels like he would have been a magician, and that's just what he's doing for the audience—putting on a magic show. That 1 Guy tours relentlessly, and is a regular at festivals around the world.
