Xeroid Entity is an electronic music ensemble consisting of Howard
Moscovitz, Greg Waltzer, and Bill Fox. Our debut CD is called "Moons
of Saturn" and is available at We've
captured a lot of good music at our show at the Deer Head Inn and have
released some of it on our second CD, "Live at the Deer Head Inn."

What’s the buzz about? After a wired holiday celebration last December,
the Electro-Music Chamber Orchestra returns to Sarnoff Corporation's
Auditorium on Saturday, March 15th with its mountains of synthesizers,
keyboards, sequencers, gizmos, gadgets, and electro-gear. Doors open at
7:00 PM for this ear- and eye-expanding event, with refreshments
provided by Grovers Mill Coffee and McCaffrey's bakery. Admission is
$10 for the general public; paying Friends of the David Sarnoff Library
and students 18 and under with a valid school ID receive a five dollar

This time around the infamous, mutating orchestra personnel have been
hand-picked by founders Howard Moscovitz and Greg Waltzer. During the
first half of the evening, various members will perform short sets of
electrifying compositions before returning in the second half as the
full Chamber Orchestra in a sizzling celebration of Spring.

The audience will meet Fringe Element, a quartet of electro-musicians:
Michael Victor, Greg Waltzer, Jose Murcia and James Lacey. Their
wholly spontaneous creations will lead everyone out of the ordinary and
into a world of unpredictable, flowing soundscapes. Their two CDs,
Rampant Biology and Organic Chemistry are available at Another of the evening’s permutations will see Greg
Waltzer leave the Fringe to build lush, ambient sonic constructs with
partners Howard Moscovitz and Bill Fox. Together, they become the
resonant force called Xeroid Entity. The evening’s mutations continue
with Howard freed of the trio to perform solo, bringing us deep into
the reverberating harmonies and silences of his own universe. He’ll
then be joined by thereminist Kip Rosser (Remember the theremin? The
electronic instrument that’s played without being touched!). The duo
will present their dreamy, evocative improvisations, soon to be
released on their CD, Exploration of the Black Exterior. The
metamorphosis will be completed in the evening’s second half, as all
personnel become the Electro-Music Chamber Orchestra. Their composition
will be an entirely new experiment in which the music is conducted by
utilizing a complex numbering system, under the direction of Howard

This feast for the ears is also going to be a banquet for the eyes.
State-of-the-art visuals will send the audience on a parallel trip
presented by Azimuth Visuals. The premiere diva of computer-generated
abstract images, animations, and original artwork, Hong Waltzer will be
processing and mixing video in real time. Inspired by the music being
created onstage, her dynamic collages bring even more depth to the
musical oceans.

Perfect for young and old, electronic music enthusiasts and traditional
music-lovers alike, this is a great occasion to treat aspiring
musicians to sights and sounds they’ve never experienced before. Don’t
miss this evening of boundary-breaking music making. Get a real buzz,
and kick off Spring with the Electro-Music Chamber Orchestra!
