Many thanks to Avant Music News for making Transparent Points on Four Axes a pick of the week.


new from pan y rosas

New, and available for free download from the netlabel Pan y Rosas–Transparent Points on Four Axes.

Transparent Points on Four Axes is a layered, electroacoustic studio collaboration from double bassist Daniel Barbiero, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Ken Moore, and modular synthesist Dave Vosh. Each track began with a ground layer of a composed or improvised performance on double bass or synthesizer, in tandem with a directed, auto-generated soundscape produced by an analogue modular synthesizer. The tracks were finished with a further layering of synthesizer, electronics and percussion. The result is a richly textured music growing out of the dynamic interactions of sound shape, color and line.

Daniel Barbiero: double bass (tracks 2, 5, 6, 7 & 8); Sylosynth app (tracks 1 & 3); Microbrute synthesizer (track 4).

Ken Moore: Crackle Box (track 2); MiniMoog (track 8); Emax sampler (tracks 1, 5, 6) ; tam tams (tracks 3, 4, 7); steel pan drum (track 8); glockenspiel (track 8); bells, bowls and other percussion (all tracks).

Dave Vosh: analogue modular synthesizer (all tracks).

Recorded January & February 2018 in Silver Spring MD, Upper Marlboro MD, and Cuyahoga Falls, OH; assembled in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, February 2018, at Anvil Creations Studio.


2017 electronica fest at national electronics museum

Tomorrow night the 2017 Electronica Fest, the annual event organized by Dave Vosh, takes place at the National Electronics Museum, from noon-nine. I’ll be closing the show in a duo with Ken Moore on analogue synthesizer–an instrumental format we used for our recent release Lunge. I’ll also be sitting in with Bourdon, the electroacoustic duet of Curt and Dani Seiss. 1745 West Nursery Road, Linthicum, MD.
