Small Electronic Oddments

September 16, 2018

This is a slow electronic piece on these devices: Yamaha QY-10 (from the 80s!), MakeNoise 0 Coast, Korg Volca Sample, littleBits synth, Korg SQ-1, Korg Monotron, homemade Monotron CV box, one delay pedal. The QY-10 programming is probably 20+ years old. Live recording…

When I was living in a cave in the Spiti Valley in the Himalaya, the only instrument I found was a chromatic harmonica. I bought it in the provincial capital, Kaza, charmed by the idea of playing an instrument that requires strong lungs in a thin oxygen environment. My struggle with that is evident, here, in this cover of my Robot Song “Battery Heart.”

(The original, studio version of “Battery Heart” is here.)

The great writer Harlan Ellison passed away this month. I sent him a letter in May, just to thank him for his work and (more significantly, to me) his righteous energy for social injustice and artists’ rights. He was a cantankerous fellow, and not without flaw, and I felt, since I was visiting L.A., that I had to send a “fan letter” and here it is. (This was typed out on a balky typewriter, so do forgive the flaws.)

If you have never read Ellison, try out Deathbird Stories or Angry Candy  (here is the first story in that collection, “Paladin of the Lost Hour”) or his humorous essay on “The 3 Most Important Things in Life”.
