Saturday's "Miami Monstrosity" mini festival at Churchill's features, unsurprisingly, a wildly divergent mix of styles in its all-locals lineup. But among the artists who depart most drastically from the venue's usual sounds is Static Moon, a.k.a. producer John Paul Sindoni. A multi-instrumentalist on the South Florida scene for the past decade, in high school he formed a rock band, Deezal, with buddies who included Rachel Goodrich. But what most have likely heard are his lush collaborations with local trance god George Acosta, who Sindoni met when both attended the SAE School of Audio Technology.
