BentFest Performances

I've got tons of photos and videos to dig through when I get home from NYC (tomorrow) but for now, here's my Bent Fest performance from Saturday, and the set I did at Silent Barn in Williamsburg on Sunday. Its been a great weekend, and musically, this was a pretty fun experiment.

NYC Bound - Bent Fest here I come!

Leaving tomorrow afternoon for some dj gigs and BentFest 2010. I've just packed the most ridiculous amount of electronics into 2 suitcases that I will end up paying a fortune to take on the plane.

Anyway, Come check out the Voice of Saturn stuff at BentFest this weekend. I'll have sever VoS synth, sequencer and filter kits along with me, as well as a fully built sequencer for sale. I'm also bringing along a few of my telephone microphones to sell. I've only got a few parts left, so I probably won't make many more of these.

If anyone reads this blog - hope to see you in New York!

recompas performance, with 5 Drummers!

Saturday we had a really interested Recompas show at the Star Bar along with Noot D'Noot and the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra. My "score" can be seen to the left. I was basically going for a great big kraut-rock/drone explosion, and I think we executed it rather well. We managed to have 5 Drummers playing at once, with help from members of Noot D'Noot, A Fight to the Death and more! Below are some videos.

Help Bent be Awesome!

So Wednesday I'll be flying up to NYC to participate in BentFest 2010. Really looking forward to hanging out with some fantastic designers and musicians (see previous post for more info). I wanted to post up the kickstarter widget for Bent. They still need to raise some money to help make sure the fest really kicks off. Donations are really appreciated, and there are different levels. One of the prizes is a Voice of Saturn synth.
