Railroad Earth
At the basis of this performance recorded Friday at Railroad Earth are two self-playing patches Don and I drafted beforehand, with some manipulation occurring during the performance. Sadly not included on this direct recording were some interesting additions added by other artists moving through the area where Don and I were set up.

Self-Playing Patches

The recent work Don has been doing on both the 200e as well as the Synthi - pieces in which the instrument is not manipulated during the actual recording - has piqued my curiosity about the Self-Playing process.

In response to the remarkable set of 200e experiments Don distributed via .zip archive earlier this week, I offer my own set of Self-Playing Series 200 pieces. Here are both links:
