Synthi Group Vol. 1

Synthi Group

One of my recordings has been included on a compilation of tracks recorded by members of the Synthi Group, and made available through Clinical Archives as a free download.

The track was the first of 35 recordings of free-running, self-playing Synthi patches recorded straight to Pro Tools with no processing, overdubs, or editing. I'm planning on making the remaining pieces available in the future, and a few more from that project are sprinkled on my websites.

Third Collaborative Performance


Our third live improvisation together - this time at Eyedrum in Atlanta on July 20, 2009. The excellent photography provided by artist Alex Kvares can be viewed in entirety here.

This set is the first not performed exclusively on Buchla instruments, but rather through the developments made on his recent "Work Order" series Don decided to include his remarkable EMS Synthi A as well with interesting results.

Our intention for this performance was to take advantage of the opportunity to perform at a higher volume than we had previously, and rely on some techniques which couldn't be as well explored otherwise.


Second Collaborative Performance


Our second collaborative performance was for the second CitySkies Electronic Music Festival on May 23, 2009 at Kavarna in Atlanta, Georgia. An excerpt from this performance is available on youtube.

As an additional point of reference, a projected presentation of Smith, R. D. (1998) 'Social Structures and Chaos Theory' Sociological Research Online, vol. 3, no. 1 was included.
