Strayed into the realms of 5/4, pentatonic and whole tone scales as well as some Eastern flavours, which i love.. enjoyed the constant of a drone bass using an octave pedal.. every now and then you can hear the crowd of people chatting.. ! 🙂
I always intend this type of work to be good to work to, or to meditate or do yoga to… if you try, will you let me know if it is helpful for concentration or for clearing the mind?
London Analogue Festival 2014 was in The Bargehouse at The OXO Tower, on the South Bank in London, it took place in the Summer.. fantastic venue, an untouched, undeveloped bargehouse, enormous.. we were right in the top.. amazing textures on the walls, i am sad to this day that i didn’t manage to take photos of it inside.
finally got to release the video of Jono Podmore and I ..totally analogue equipment..
My gear? Korg SE 500 Stage Echo Tape Delay, Arp 2600 Synth, Sennheiser Hypercardioid mic, Mackie 1202VLZ
Jono’s gear? Longwave handmade Theremin, Mackie 802 VLZ 3 mixer, Mutron III+, MXR Carbon Copy, Lili 004 – handmade Ring Modulator, Filter, 2xLFO
Wonder if anyone can understand the spoken word stuff? It’s using some amusing texts, check the book titles in the youtube listing. wink emoticon !!!
SO LOVE THE DIRECTION OF THIS IMPROVISATION.. !! Perfect conditions, lovely gallery, great energy.. It all came together.. This is the direction some of my work is now heading in, it’s taken a while but finally beginning to see the wood from the trees.
I knew i was going to love singing with a Theremin.. it just was going to work wasn’t it? Jono is a super maestro on it, as you can see from this short clip. Hopefully we will be doing some more performances in the not too distant future… 🙂
A lovely festival in Essex on the island of Mersea. All the proceeds go to children’s charities – this year we raised over 12 thousand pounds. Thanks so much to the fabulous Simon Deards for putting together this video.
