Recordings of live sets at Metronome Coffee from last night. Thanks for John for taking the great pics!
Levels were a bit off, it clips more than I would prefer. I’m playing with a DinSync.info Drum Dokta prototype call Dr Protomonger and a Nanoloop 1.3 cart in my gameboy. I had decided to do an all improvisational set. I had no loops premade in nanoloop which is always a really interesting experience. I’ve been playing with nanoloop 1.3 long enough now i know it well enough to not feel overwhelmed doing something like that. Overall the set went well and i’m really happy with it.
Also playing that night was Nick Francis with his gorgeous custom MIDI controller the choppertone.
his stuff was this super chill downtempo stuff that was so much fun to listen to and watch him perform.
one of my favorite things about his performance was his wife. she was sitting in the front and he would look up at her for to make sure the volume wasn’t to loud or to quiet.
and closing out the night was gruvtron. aaron and kord where jamming on software that thier company has been developing for the iPad. this set was a lot of fun to listen to. they where doing a lot of the stuff on the fly so it kept me interested in where they were heading. The recording clips a bit as well.
Got a flyer made a full week ahead of the show. We may be the worst chiptune promoters ever…
Oh wait, that one guy in NYC..
Ok 2nd worst.
I’ve been working on a set using my new modular and nanovoice. I’m going to have the usual large effects setup KP3, a delay, SP404, but also adding the modular for more signal processing fun. We’ll see how well i can do it when i’m not in my basement. So far I’ve been pretty happy mucking about in my basement but doing it all live on the fly in front of people will be a little different.
I’ve been recording a bunch of foreign language stuff into my SP404 for layering at the show. I hooked it up to my cable box and ended up watching the Home Shopping Network with heavy feedback and delay. It was amazing! I have some of that loaded on the sampler as well. So if it goes totally wrong i’ll be able to fall back on that.
