Recording a demo

So we're mid finished on a tour demo. 4 tracks, featuring our new member Duncan Tootill on trumpet, flugelhorn, synth and sampler. Blusher and Absolutely are done, Pluto and Supernova are on the way. Thank you RJ Gordon.

I also just got my hands on our sessions for the new EP(which will be nearly identical to the tour demo but better and longer)
Mike Amacio was wondering about with a flash drive for me and I picked it up. It was held inside a postage envelope, sealed with postage on.
He told me he sent it. He lied. It's cool though, we love him anyway

Data Dog EP and synth warehouse

Woah, earlier today I went to a synth warehouse in Hawthorne, NJ with Duncan Tootill, Adam Kastin and Weston Minisalli. Locked door, warehouse filled with analog synths and organs. Awesome spot. I want everything.
Mostly a draw bar organ and six or seven analog synths.

Then,
I heard the new Data Dog EP Night Light with Duncan and Adam. Robbie says its almost done and it sounds incredible. Really great production and songs. His mom and brother even sing in a choir at one point.

Date Tree


Duncan Tootill

So I think maybe the whole multimedia Elemeno thing has been a failure, so I'm starting an improv multimedia group called Date Tree with a rotating cast of dancers, musicians and visual artists. Last night was the first attempt with Duncan Tootill, Matt Gaffney, RJ Gordon, Annie Rigney, Lucy Wilson and myself. It was fun, and super loose.


Matt Gaffney

Date Tree sort of began this last summer with a few recorded improvs by Scott Davis, Duncan Tootill and Myself. I won't post them because they're both about 20 minutes long and contain less than 5 minutes of awesome each, though they were a lot of fun (and the only recording in existence that I play drum kit on)
