Rising Crimson Tide
Video: 1984 Audio: 2004 I rediscovered this piece recently and thought to share it here. The visuals I made back in my video studio in 1984: Chromaton 14 Analog Video Synthesizer, NTSC Chromascope Analog Video Synthesizer, Modified Apple II+ Computer with genlock board running the CEEMAC visual composition language, Modified Commodore C64 Computer running Microflix, lots of video feedback. The audio is my live performance on the Kurzweil K2600, part of the webcast series "Art Music Coffeehouse" that I produced at that time. That much said, none of this stuff matters much. Is it art that can still be enjoyed today, even as a very small low resolution video file? It might work on a phone. Probably look awful on a big TV. No matter. Those that like this sort of thing will find "Rising Crimson Tide" the sort of thing they like.

Synthetic Pleasure (Plaisir Synthetique)
This is a performance of Jean-Marc Matos & Company in front of a large crowd at the Festival de la Rochelle in the south of France, July 1983. I performed the video live during the live dance presentation using the Chromaton 14 Analog Video Synthesizer, the Adwar Special Effect Keyer, and my homemade camera-monitor chain for video feedback. It was sponsored by the French Ministry of Culture. I created the music with the EML 400/401 Analog Sequencer, my Creatronics modified Casio M10, Harald Bode's Barberpole phaser, and one of the very first Linn Drum machines programmed by the famous blues guitarist Dave Fields at the remarkably precocious age of 14. Consider it "Techno" style EDM anticipated long before the genre emerged.

Witch of Wishes
This is a performance from Spring 1981, forty years ago. I was hired by Digital Keyboards to modify the GDS Synergy synthesizer. I used a piece of white felt to make the instrument presentable while it was disassembled. It was a very early FM synthesizer that used the digital oscillator design from the Alles machine at Bell Labs. It is a credit to Mercer 'Stoney' Stockell, Tom Piggott, Dennis Breifel (RIP) and the crew at MTI Crumar. I offer this music as a credit to their work.

Glints of Light
This is in memory of my long lost friend, talented animator and visual artist Charlie Case, who set my music to his visions of alien worlds and golden symbols. We made this work together back in 2010. Wishing him well where ever his spirit may be.

A Walk In The Woods
Walking in the woods in a finger-picking guitarist sort of way. Melodic nostalgia for Hawaiian slack-key guitar. In the last minute, minute #4 of 5, we emerge with frosted string piano sounds to fly in ethereal flight over a beautiful landscape. Was it a dreamscape? Shapes of keyboard and keyboardist ebb and flow in perspective-altered fluid patterns amidst pretty natural trees and such. Like it was all drawn on the back of one of Salvador Dali's napkins.

ARP 2500 Celebration
At the office of Retrolinear, a repair shop in North Wales, PA where this instrument has been under restoration and repair, on 9-9-20 we made this video as the first celebration of this instrument's new musical life. We are observing the 50th anniversary of the release of the ARP 2500 Modular Synthesizer in October of 1970. This instrument has three keyboards, two of them monophonic (one note at a time) and one of them duophone (two notes at a time). It was designed as a studio instrument, not something you play live but an instrument used to layer sounds one track at a time. Modern modular synthesizers have been influenced by this seminal historic instrument. I played these instruments extensively starting in the fall of 1971. At Sinergia Studio in Honolulu, HI, under the tutelage of my mentor and teacher Peter Coraggio, we established an ARP Dealorship where we demonstrated, taught classes and sold the entire line of ARP synthesizers. The flagship instrument was our ARP 2500 Modular. It was great fun to play a restored ARP 2500 as we honored the memory of Alan R. Pearlman, the founder and inventor of the ARP Synthesizer. Support the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation (https://alanrpearlmanfoundation.org/) and visit EMEAPP to join and support them as well.
