    Biography

    The indie electronic band Barcelona (1998-2002):

    Barcelona was an indie/new wave/pop band from Arlington, Virginia consisting of Jason Korzen, Jennifer Carr, Ivan Ramiscal, and Christian Scanniello. The band addressed geeky themes in many of their songs, such as "The Downside of Computer Camp", "I Have the Password to Your Shell Account", and "Paging System Operator", about a boy who contacts someone in Sweden whom he believes to be an experienced cracker, using a BBS, only to find he is also a thirteen-year-old.

    1998: Formation
    Barcelona was formed in 1998 by Korzen and Carr. The pair recruited Ramiscal and Scanniello and began writing and performing original songs that year. Later that year, the group met producer/engineer Trevor Kampmann (also known as Trevor hollAnd) and began work on their first LP, Simon BASIC, which included the single Why Do You Have So Much Fun Without Me?

    1999: Simon Basic
    The band signed to March Records in early 1999 and released Simon BASIC on that label in June 1999. In the fall of 1999, they embarked on their first tour, mainly on the East Coast, but also including Chicago. The band performed to indie rock fans at places like MIT. The album takes its name from the Simons' BASIC programming language, developed for the Commodore 64.

    2000: Zero One Infinity
    In 2000, the band began work on Zero One Infinity, again with producer Kampmann. The album included I Have the Password to Your Shell Account (which received some circulation on the Internet), Studio Hair Gel, Robot Trouble and Kasey Keller, an ode to the US soccer goalkeeper. "Studio Hair Gel" and "Robot Trouble" were both released as singles prior to the album and included remixes by the likes of Figurine and Dntel's James Tamborello and Baxendale. The band toured again in the fall of 2000 on ZOI, and the album was well received.

    2001: Transhuman Revolution
    Barcelona recorded transHUMAN revolution in 2001 again with Trevor hollAnd. The album includes the singles Everything Makes Me Think about Sex and Human Simulation. Shortly after the album's release, the band played their final show at The Metro Cafe in Washington, DC in February 2002.

    Post-Barcelona
    Jason Korzen formed sprites with his wife, Amy Korzen. Both Christian Scanniello and Ivan Ramiscal, who were also in Barcelona, have contributed to the project. Ramiscal formed The Positions.
