Switched on Synths is always a good time at the House of Targ (and they have a couple of excellent lineups next months, headlined by Rational Youth and Steve Summers). This edition saw a return by For Esme, a hot set from Montreal's Saxsyndrum and the inimitable Infinity's Astrum (aka Nick Doyle) and his box of many wires and switched and doodads. Here's Nick!
So many dials ...
began as a duo of Nick on drums and David on sax, with both piloting an
array of electronics to boot. Lately they've been joined by David's
occasional Year of Glad collaborator, A.P. Here's Nick!
Saxophone action with David!
More A.P. and Nick!
Nick goes electronic!
They were a heck of an act to follow, but For Esme did a pretty capable job. Here's Martha!
Guitar action with Nathan!
Percussive action, and also Dave on bass!
The whole lot!
More Nathan and Martha!
Another solid synthetic night.
