Whirlwind & Storm

   (0 reviews)

This was an experiment with the Moog synthesizer and a four channel open reel tape deck. Ken originally recorded this in 2004, and made it into a 2-CD set, but it was never sold or advertised until 2014 on his Bandcamp site. It is explained on the site as such:

Originally intended to be a two disc set, each one continuous track of 80 minutes, and playable together as one 80 minute piece on two stereo sound systems for a surround sound effect. These CDs had to be edited into 4 separate pieces, two for each disc, in order to fit this format. Each pair can still be burned onto one disc and played together, but they also work as a continuous extra-long album of synthesizer drone works.

This is the last recorded sounds from Ken's Moog muSonics minimoog unit before it was given over to capable hands for restoration. The synth was run through a four-channel tape deck, with the first channel recorded onto the second, the second onto the third, and the third onto the fourth. After that, the tracks were processed with a Lexicon effects module to give each disc a "characteristic" of its own.

The gallery shows the original picture for the 2-CD package with tray card, and individual covers [plus tray card photographs] if it was packaged as two separate CDs. Also, the Bandcamp photo is different than all three of those.
