So my friend Chris turned 40 last month and I played a secret birthday part gig for him.
I was kinda fraught with concern about this gig as I haven’t played out in 6 years and my studio was only recently rebuilt. Â There was a lot of ground to cover and reworking of music to figure out. Â I considered bailing on it several times due to sheer frustration.
I’m so glad I didn’t! Â So now I should give a big shootout to Deftly Demolition for asking me to play. Â Thanks, D!
The whole thing was a surprise and included several others paling including myself, DJ Darryl Hell, Journey To The Center Of The Colon and David Doktor. I was kinda amped for my set and began prepping for a couple of week before. Â So glad I did.
I had an amazing time playing. Â Most of the stuff has never seen the light of day outside of my iPod. Â It was nice to play it for fresh ears and get some feedback. Â I rolled out the Krsna lunchbox synth for the first time and the lord god Krsna didn’t fail in amazing people. Â Love that. Â Also brought out Black Sheep! Â Black Sheep! to the gig. Â Both provided nice ambient noise madness in between songs.

It was fantastic meeting new folks like Rob from Component Records, DJ Darryl Hell, Elizabeth from Pattern Behavior and Ed from Journey To The Center Of The Colon. Â I feel like you need to see a video of Ed aka JTTCOTC in action to get how massively awesome he is live. Â Amazing.
I’ll be posting more files from it soon on my Soundcloud page. Â For now here’s the first song of the set, my new theme song. Â Just in time for the end of 2013.
Some very great things also happened that night which I will be able to divulge soon once I am given permission.
Ok. Â Back to the lab. Â I got a mic to grab!
