Lost Waves Improvisations

Yesterday I released a live Lost Waves improvised album. The recording is the second part of about two-hours of an improvised performance in Brooklyn, NY on July 26, 2019. I livestreamed the first hour on Instagram and recorded the audio to my laptop.

If imperfections in music are what makes it human, this live album is very human. 🙃

All sounds were created on the Teenage Engineering OP-1 and Casio SA-46 with 2 effects pedals to control live looping, pitch-shifting, reverb and delay. The drum sounds were sequenced on the OP-1.
