a hands-off one-note synth solo

I'm tempted to delve for details, but that seems... unwise.

Well, how could you play a keyboard while you've got those jumping jitters?


To explain both the "dancing video" and the "one note solo" biz in one fell swoop, both were me, in my true teenage glory, mocking the rock of the day, I think. Regarding the hands-free solo, my band was the only "new wave" group in this teenage battle of the bands - the rest of the bands were still pretty steeped in Music Store Rock, if that makes sense. So my band felt we were the edgy (ha!) agitators. For every band/instrumentalist that played as many notes-per-second as possible, we/I were minimalists by design, so I made a show out of playing one note or fewer, ala Ron Mael.

Now, the basement video is a little harder to explain, given that I'm still in shock myself for having just discovered it. I'm one of those "I don't dance, I'm a musician" musicians. I *sorta* tried dancing once at a high school graduation thing in Australia. Don't ask. And I waltzed for 4 minutes at a then-GF's brother's wedding, only because it would have made her look bad if I didn't. Seeing myself twerking and fizzing out in the video I've shared as an analog  teenage hairstyle is baffling, but I'm certain there's a heavy degree of piss-taking going on. It's not like I danced around in the basement when the camera WASN'T on!

Anyway, I'm glad if you guys have gotten a kick out of this clip. Even friends who've known me for ages ain't seen something like this out of me!

This is an odd synth from Analog Solutions that most may have never seen.  Once in a while i'll toy around with it.

I was half expecting Booji Boy to pop out during the first slice here - this should be the theme to his feature film debut!

Ha,  now that's a name from the past.  The Devo guys got their start down the road from me in the Kent/Akron area.  Mark (one of the founders) was very into synths, and IMO, a real inspiration to bands that synthed up music later in the 80's.   And far as boogie boy...that's got to be one of my favorite weird, and I do mean weird, videos.  Devo with Neil Young and boggie boy playing the moog.  ;D

Glad the reference has such resonance, as it were! Yeah, DEVO were such an influence on so many of us, it seems. My high school nickname was Mothersbaugh Spud.

I posted this on the Prophet 6 page, so I won't ramble on here. Just to say, this is a final mix of something I posted last Christmas. It's 65% Prophet 6, 34% Prophet 5 and 1% Dopefer DE. A bright, bit-too-lite pop song...
