Late this month, I’m going to head on over to Jack Straw Studios and record my performance for Sonarchy. That is a VERY long running program that airs on KEXP at midnight on Sundays. It’s a showcase that features all kinds of strange, cool and creative music. (Thus the totally ghetto time slot) Used to be that it was broadcast live, but that’s not the case any more. I don’t know when my show will be aired but you can be certain that the info will be on this site when I do. And don’t sweat it if you can’t actually be listening at that time. The shows are archived as podcasts for a considerable time afterword.
One could argue that I should be playing my songs since it should be out be then and I should be promoting it. But I don’t want to use the opportunity to produce material that will just sound a lot better on the actual CD. This is going to be an improvised, experimental set.
So here is my gear that I plan to bring to play: TOP ROW- Futureretro Orb (rotary sequencer), Vermona Perfourmer (quad analog synthesizer). BOTTOM ROW- Flame Clockwork (analog CV and gate generator), Vermona Kick Lancet (drum synthesizer), Vermona Retroverb Lancet (spring reverb+filter), Eventide Time Factor (delay). This is pretty much the same set up that I played at the Mercury in March. You may notice the prevalence of Vermona products on the table. It’s a odd German company that makes gear that seems to be tailored to suit odd people (like me)
