Modular Synthesizer by Bit Reduction

Burning Chrome featuring Bit Reduction & Prospero electronic improv sessions

On September 12th, Bit Reduction and Prospero took to the stage at Burning Chrome.

Bit Reduction

For this performance he patched a modular synthesizer system from scratch, building the sound up cable by cable, using very little external gear. The only preconceived notion was to exploit feedback paths. As such, the result was unpredictable, harsh, and largely unpleasant – in the best of ways.

The result was an eclectic and memorable experience that left everyone calling for more. Follow Craig Renaud’s project on his soundcloud page and stay tuned for future performances.

Prospero

Born as a solo project in August 2001 under musician and DJ Wade Anderson, Prospero’s music fuses traditional industrial electronics with a variety of acoustic percussion and exotic instruments. In their fifth album “Paradise or Apocalypse” Prospero continues to explore new themes galvanized by the addition of tribal and folk elements as well as vocals from Sandford and Veela.

What is Live Improv?

The idea is for the musician to approach the show with no pre-conceived idea’s about re-producing tracks. Some elements including sounds, instruments and patterns may have been researched but no practiced and no sequenced. There is no plan about what to play or when. What happens at the show will be all created and programmed on the fly.

BIT REDUCTION

Power noise & gritty ambient project, a mesmerizing blend of distortion and harmony.

And this month’s awesome poster is a special contribution from Mr. Mike Mleczko who squandered lab time at Stanford creating nano-etchings into a polymer film covered silicon wafer.
The design you’re looking at is in the order of microns.
