New Experimental Improv Release “Miracle Eater” by LSD

One of my improv mentors Dino J.A. Deane played an experimental improvized set with as part of the trio LSD at the Muse Performance Space in Lafayette, CO last Friday. The lineup was:

Sound Design- Dino J.A. Deane
Sax- Bret Sexton
Electric Guitar and Electronics- Farrell Lowe

They just released a recording of the performance on Bandcamp.

Dino was performing with two iPads running an audio interface and controller. Dino’s has a variety of posts on the topic of performing with iOS so rather than spoil the fun, I’ll direct you here http://jadeane.com/blog.

Season 2 of Sonic Encounters Soundscapes Podcast Underway

Each episode contains original improvisational soundscapes and songs created with synthesis and sampling to capture, disassemble, reassemble, and shape the sounds around us. Episodes are usually story-driven so check the episode notes for hints as to what’s going on with each individual piece.

I also make original cover art for each episode which can be viewed in the Soundcloud version. For example, Season 2 kicks of with with a new track called “The Department of Entropy”.

In a deep dark corner of universe, ancient bureaucrats monitor and nudge the machinery that controls the decay of the all things. Sometimes they dance. Welcome to the Department of Entropy.

Journey with Elektron Analog Four Continues + $100 Rebate on Analog Four MKII or Analog Rytm MKII Through September 30th

I just spent an intense month going deeper with the Analog Four MKI to get ready for a recent Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup presentation and performance I did with Brian Horsfeld (a.k.a. The Aefonic). He owns A MKII so I got to spend time checking it out as well.

The larger size, OLED screen, more dedicated and the back-lit buttons really improve the workflow on the MKII and give you better perspective on the state of the machine. Check out Cuckoo”s video on what’s new.

I was already pretty handy with the A4 but prepping for this meet up really took me to the next level and I have to say I consider this a real desert island since for me now. One thing that surprised me is how often I use it for drum sounds.

If you’re in the market for an Analog Four MKII and Analog Rytm MKII now is a good time to buy as they have $100 rebate which lasts till September 30.
