SOUNDSCAPES CONCERT SERIES: http://soundscapes.us
Sunday, September 4, the Soundscapes Concert Series returns to the
Nazareth Center for the Arts with Modulator ESP of the UK.
Modulator Experimental Synthesis Project, a.k.a. Modulator ESP,
performs improvised music that explores the boundaries of dark ambient,
drone, Berlin School sequencing, and noise using modular synthesis,
real-time sampling, sound manipulation, and live looping. Eschewing
playing along to pre-programmed, structured backing tracks, Modulator
ESP prefers something a bit more freeform. This is the revelation he
had upon discovering bands like Arc, RMI, Redshift, Airsculpture, and
Arcane who were doing a more retro-styled improvisational take on EM.
Modulator ESP has been described variously as "vintage synth overload
to propel you into the outer reaches of the cosmos" and "one man will
descend to (this) earth in a hail of analogue synth tones; called upon
from the singular consciousness of John Carpenter and Vangelis - like
a 2046 dystopian dream with the optimism of Jean Michael Jarre, and
Modulator ESP loves playing synths because he loves the electronic,
synthetic, other worldly nature of the sounds. This makes Ambient,
Berlin School EM the best style for his interests. He plans to stretch
the boundaries by incorporating some of his progressive influences.
Doors open at 7:30 pm and the concert is at 8:00 pm. The concert is
free. Donations are requested to support the musician and to enable the
Nazareth Center for the Arts to pay operating expenses. The NCA is
located at 30 Belvidere Street, Nazareth, PA 18064 just off of Route
191 on the southwest corner of Belvidere Street and South Spruce
Street. Check the NCA site for parking information.
The Soundscapes Concert Series is the concert companion to the Galactic
Travels radio program on WDIY-FM and to Thought Radio on WMUH-FM and
