Signals with Shivasongster returned to the interwebs on 10/20/11 after a hiatus of a couple months due to our travels in Ireland, EM2011, and other priorities. Now back as a monthly program, Signals is offering me a place to once again experiment with new sounds and put myself out there as an improv/electro artist. Its some of the most fun I’ve had musically.
Show #13 featured the following:
ElectroWednesday – A combination of prerecorded composition in Reason 6 accompanied by live instruments through various effect pedals.
Crush My Mouth – An expanded version of the song debuted at EM2010 that kicks off many of my electro performances.
Tobit’s Demons & Warwick’s Robots – Two connected pieces debuted at EM2011. These began as experiments on a Boss Looper pedal (which I sold last year). Later I reconstructed them in Reason and use a JamMan to perform them live.
Sunday Beat – A newer Reason 6 project with live overdubs.
Life After – Another newer composition in Reason 6, based on some sounds from a Korg Triton Extreme.
Pentangle & Maya – Solo electric guitar versions of the acoustic pieces that debuted on my album Bloomsburg to Bangladesh, also performed at EM2011 with fellow EMer Robert Dorschel.
Tune in next month (11/17/11) Check schedule for latest info.
