‘Synthrospections’: monthly series of livestream concerts
TO BE NOTIFIED OF THE NEXT LIVESTREAM ‘SYNTHROSPECTIONS” CONCERT PLEASE SIGN UP HERE.
‘Synthrospections’ are solo keyboard improvisations using my considerable collection of vintage synths, Rhodes piano and other keyboards. So expect some electronic cosmic ambiences with jazz angularities and abstract grooves.
To add a sense of risk, each concert will be entirely improvised. Something from nothing. No prepared beats, sequences or tunes, just impromptu stream of consciousness constructs, inspired by the adventurous ‘happenings’ of early 70s electronic pioneers like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, but also the spirit of that era’s Miles Davis jazz-rock alumni (Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea) as well as the ethereal moods of German ECM label sonic landscapes.
The performance will be recorded and then released as an album on the Sargasso label shortly afterwards.
The concert will be on Zoom and will be followed by an informal chat.
See you there!
