LR2- M. Geddes Gengras – ‘Choices’ CDr $7(US)/$8(CAN)/$10(EU)
Two pieces of frantic modular synthesis by Los Angeles’ M. Geddes Gengras. On his second release for Ekhein, Gengras takes the possibilities of chaos and unpredictability within his growing modular set up to the next logical space. Avoiding the cliches of present day synthesizer based music and focusing on more abstract textures and approaches in pacing and the listeners endurance for sounds presented. East coast tour starting 9/21.
LR3- Earn – ‘Performance II’ CDr $7(US)/$8(CAN)/$10(EU)
The second “Performance” release documents a set at the BCA center in Burlington, Vermont during the US tour with Mirror To Mirror in November of 2011. Performing using only live cassette playback and manipulation of guitar recordings as the sound source. This release captures a more subtle, ambient side in a number of shorter pieces with a finale of heavily layered waves of loops using the 4 track recorder as an instrument, with detail paid towards the mixing of sound and the speed of the cassette as a tool for expanding melodies. Recorded by Oliver Mitchell, mastered by M. Geddes Gengras, and photos by Greg Davis.
