Christos Koulendros – modular synth
Walter Wright – AVSynth

Two PeterB modulars and video, rehearsing for Performance Lab. New setup, long score, exploring the interaction between the two synths. Video runs independently, although patterns and phrases in both audio and video are similar. This, I believe, creates a richer, perhaps more challenging, experience for the viewer.

Michael plays a tin pail, rocks and a microphone, Christos plays his modular, an energetic duo, literally (or litter-ally) bouncing off the walls. Dei sings. Christos joins Elka Bong for the last set of the tour, and it’s a good one. We load out, Xander helps with my PA. Dei and Al head home, as do Mary Ann and me.

Spring miniTour 2018: Day 7

Dei’s mic isn’t working so it’s acapella for her, and for an encore a monologue about the colors purple and mauve, a matte black train, time travel, and her uncle’s house in NY that straddles the US/Canadian border. Elka Bong up next, I run Geometry 01, perhaps not the best choice, we’ll re-evaluate next week. Finally Andy Laties, shakuhachi, and Jack Wright, soprano sax. The audience are all over 65, gray haired, retired artists from NYC. We’ve given them something to talk about.

We load out, back to Al’s, snacks and small talk, in bed at 1am.

Spring miniTour 2018: Day 6

March 28, 2018

Up at 9am, administrivia … Al makes coffee, “deja vu all over again”. We go for a walk in the woods, up to the top of the mountain in the state park behind Al’s house. I forget to turn on ‘Map My Walk’ but take umpteen pics of dead leaves, another animated panel series in the works, as if I didn’t have enough projects. Back home, scan for brain-eating ticks, all clear.

Top o’ the mountain

Dan Andreana brings his latest home-built sound project over, we set up and jam in the studio. Our second recording in two days, it’s a good one, minimal –

Geometry 4, a new Processing sketch, which includes gradients that take advantage of the Jones’ MVIP. Basically the same patch that I’ve used for the last month.
