Kassette / Tonn Recordings / 2019
A collection of recordings made between March 2017 and July 2018.
These are culled from a long-standing practice of improvised recorded studio performances.
Each piece was recorded direct to disc, as a single take with no overdubs, editing, mixing or other post-production techniques.
The principle instruments used in all of these recordings were the Verbos Electronics modular synthesizer system and the Roland Juno-6 polyphonic synthesizer JU-6.
These were occasionally augmented by the Yamaha CS-10 monophonic synthesizer, the Korg MS-20 monophonic synthesizer, the Roland SH-3a monophonic synthesizer and the Arturia Drumbrute Analog Drum Synthesizer. A small home made modular synthesizer (AKA the Junkbox) was also used on one track.
All effects processing was performed live using the Yamaha REX50 Digital Multi Effector, the Digitech BP8 Vacuum Tube Bass Preamp / Processor, the Strymon BigSky Multidimentional Reverberator and the Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo.
