It sounds very interesting, latigid on! I hope you can post some examples on MySpace. (thanks for adding me, by the way!)latigid on wrote:That's what we do, Muse. Live drums, Moog Voyager, Rhodes, Space echo, VERY minimal sequencing (the drummer goes out of time anyway ) and all into hardware keyboards only, no sampling bar minimal phrase looping on a digital delay, MIDI used almost exclusively for sysex transfer.
I either like to classify (not that everything needs classification, but it helps people understand your sound) the music as experimental dub/funk/drum'n'bass/ fusion or perhaps progessive electronic, which is actually a style according to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_electronica , but I'm not sure we mean the same thing. Kind of along the lines of "music for musicians," but it is still listenable to a general audience; the listener takes as much depth as they like. Much of the music is fully improvised, and songs can go for 30 mins.
From your description, it's a shame we don't live in the same city, country, etc. I would love to be a part of a band of that sort.
I currently live in the antithesis of a synthesizer-friendly city. For example, at my last gig, everyone thought it was funny that I was playing a Radio Shack keyboard... not knowing, of course, the relevance of the name "MG-1..."
