6-15-2013 Michael Rabito - Live on Music With Space

autonomicdrone.jpgMichael Rabito is a musician that has been discovering his propensity for the fusion of opposites for many years now. He started taking the electric guitar seriously when he was eleven and was playing out professionally by the time he left for college with his band in Vermont.  After a move to Boston the bringing together of the free flow of improvisation and the rigidity of structure increased as he played with a group of Berklee College of Music musicians for about five years. During this time his interest in loops, synthesizers and keyboards began to grow and helped to fuse space, harmony, action and dissonance. This has all culminated with his latest project back in the Princeton area called Manifested; A progressive fusion of funk, rock, dance and ambient music that has brought the group to New York, Boston, Philadelphia and many points between within their first year. They can be heard here with more information at their facebook page. Michael also performs interactive ambient space music with local visual artist Ted Klett. They will be preforming at Art All Night on June 15th -16th and can be heard at on the AutonomicDrone soundcloud page.

11-24-2012 Chuck Van Zyl - Cenotaph

Over the course of his musical existence Chuck van Zyl has developed a signature exploratory style. By blending the primitive machine beauty of classics like Ricochet with the highly formed values of more recent groups such as Redshift and Arc, his solo studio works are the result of a persistent creativity. With Cenotaph (70'22") Chuck van Zyl has melded the intimate with the epic. Fans will find the results of this release riveting. Its tone veers from synthesized and atmospheric, to the reckless energized pulse of tumbling sequencer patterns, on down to a somber interiority - moving between the three in an impressive aural narrative. With plenty of cool modulated effects, ethereal Mellotron begot harmonies and melodies, and interlinked shifting arpeggios Cenotaph seems timeless in its purity. Tune in this evening to hear selected tracks from this new release.

8-18-2012 Kohoutek - Live Return Performance


THe WPRB studio will again be graced with a live performance from Kouhoutek.kohoutek11709.JPG

Formed in Washington DC in 2003, Philly-based experimental collective Kohoutek plays improvised psychedelia, ranging from unsettling, discordant noise to delicate melodies, inspired by such varied musical entities as Can, Amon Duul 2, Ash Ra Tempel, TradGras Och Stenar, Dead C, Skullflower, Sun City Girls, Hawkwind, This Heat, Sonic Youth, Bardo Pond, Ghost, Taj Mahal Travellers, Sun Ra, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Van Der Graaf Generator. They inhabit a world where drone, musique concrete, and noise coalesces with cosmic folk, where doom and sludge metal merge with jazz-inflected polyrhythms. All Kohoutekperformances are rituals channeling untapped energy transmogrified through pure expression and response to the immediate environment.

"Lossless Loss," their second studio album released on Prophase in 2009, covers most of the dynamic stylistic stylistic range Kohoutek is known for: abstract and textural sound, atmospheric rock, harsh noise freakouts, clattering percussion, guitar heroics, and alien electronics congealing to form a multihued psychedelic extravaganza. Recorded deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in September 2007, the five members embarked on a psilocybic twilight journey, and this 44-minute aural excursion is the result. No overdubs and minimal editing create an experience as close as possible to a Kohoutek performance. With longtime core members Scott Verrastro (percussion, flute), Craig Garrett (bass) and Scott Allison (electronics) augmented by Vic Salazar (electric guitar) and Damian Languell (vocals, harmonica, clarinet, didgeridoo, Space Echo), Kohoutek forge their own path in the improv universe, and "Lossless Loss" is another burning fragment of this fleeting sonic comet.

Quite a treat to hear and quite a treat to meet and shake hands with the master Edgar Froese himself.

3-17-2012 Tim Motzer and J A Deane - Live on Air

Tonight's program will feature a live performance from Guitarist Tim Motzer and multi-instumentalist J A Deane. Dino J.A. Deane

J A Deane: Over his career multi-instrumentalist, sound-designer, conductor Dino J.A. Deane has demonstrated an innovative approach to the world of music. Deane pioneered the use of live-electronics & live-looping in Indoor Life a popular art/punk band from San Francisco during the early 1980's. There he played trombone controlled synthesizer that emulated the sound of an electric guitar. Soon afterwards he was touring the world as the electro-acoustic live-sampling percussionist with Jon Hassell.That collaboration resulted in the ground breaking Power Spot recording for ECM in 1986, produced by Brian Eno & Daniel Lanois. During that same period Deane became a close collaborator in Butch Morris's real-time composition creations called Conductions and in 1995 co-produced Morris's epic 10 CD box set Testament for New World Records. Deane coined the term live-sampling, which means to record members of the ensemble while in performance, manipulate the sound and play back the recorded audio as part of the piece, all in real time. He is considered a master in this field of performance. Deane also has an extensive background in sound-design for theater and dance working with writer directors as diverse as Sam Shepard, Julie Hebert and Christoph Marthaler.

Machine Eats Man aka,  Mohamed Ragab...coming to the USA al the way from Eygpt.

Analog & digital synthesizers , drum machines, sampling, programming & Theremin sounds take nothing away from a traditional making of pure electronic music & add to it the haunting sound of an army of Egyptian percussion instruments.

Machine Eat Man's shows usually feature stylish background visuals/video art, as well as different formations for live performance:

 

 

...and...

Duality Perspective: Boston based Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) Electronic and Ambient duo consisting of multi-instrumentalist Jason Felitto (bass, keyboards) and drummer/percussionist Kyle Ruggieri. Born out of their shared love of IDM Electronica, Duality Perspective combines organic and electronic instruments, live looping and improvisation layered with contemporary classical compositions to create a sound that is both uniquely varied yet strikingly their own.

1-28-2012 Kohoutek - Live

kohoutek11709.JPGFormed in Washington DC in 2003, Philly-based experimental collective Kohoutek plays improvised psychedelia, ranging from unsettling, discordant noise to delicate melodies, inspired by such varied musical entities as Can, Amon Duul 2, Ash Ra Tempel, Trad Gras Och Stenar, Dead C, Skullflower, Sun City Girls, Hawkwind, This Heat, Sonic Youth, Bardo Pond, Ghost, Taj Mahal Travellers, Sun Ra, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Van Der Graaf Generator. They inhabit a world where drone, musique concrete, and noise coalesces with cosmic folk, where doom and sludge metal merge with jazz-inflected polyrhythms. All Kohoutek performances are rituals channeling untapped energy transmogrified through pure expression and response to the immediate environment.

"Lossless Loss," their second studio album released on Prophase in 2009, covers most of the dynamic stylistic stylistic range Kohoutek is known for: abstract and textural sound, atmospheric rock, harsh noise freakouts, clattering percussion, guitar heroics, and alien electronics congealing to form a multihued psychedelic extravaganza. Recorded deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in September 2007, the five members embarked on a psilocybic twilight journey, and this 44-minute aural excursion is the result. No overdubs and minimal editing create an experience as close as possible to a Kohoutek performance. With longtime core members Scott Verrastro (percussion, flute), Craig Garrett (bass) and Scott Allison (electronics) augmented by Vic Salazar (electric guitar) and Damian Languell (vocals, harmonica, clarinet, didgeridoo, Space Echo), Kohoutek forge their own path in the improv universe, and "Lossless Loss" is another burning fragment of this fleeting sonic comet.

Please do tune in for what is sure to be a memorable performance.

10-08- 2011 - Bernhard Wöstheinrich Live!!!

Bernhard started in about 1987 to intensely experiment with his own soundsand tunes after he found out that drawing and painting simply weren’t enoughto adequately express himself. He went about to find something that mighthad a more “performing” approach. Inspired by the likes of Einstürzende Neubauten and other informal and experimental music, he finally began towork in a very personal way to compose and record some early tapes.

Bernhard leads his own solo project "The Redundant Rocker" and his maincollaborator is Markus Reuter (in CENTROZOON). He has also worked with IanBoddy, Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, No-Man singer Tim Bowness, Conrad Schnitzler,and Synapscape's Philipp Münch. He has released music on a variety of labelssuch as DiN, Burning Shed, Tonefloat, Unsung Records, and continues to push at the boundaries of rock, electronica, and the avant-garde.

Bernhard elicits meaning from abstraction in electronic music and painting.He has studied graphic design and has created an eclectic body of work inboth graphics and music. Using a compositional approach akin to his work asa visual artist, Bernhard usually begins by improvising abstract sonic structures which are subsequently developed into an increasingly detailed aural picture.
