About ten years ago I was doing "hand held" music shows with minimal hardware glitch pieces like the Nintendo gameboy ROM carts Nanoloop and palm Pilot software. You can hear some of those pieces on my Handheld Music EP.

Enter the new decade and the IPad app version of Nanoloop. Enter this EP of seven tracks.

These were recorded raw direct to stereo WAV as a sound track for a live music and video gig I did for Halloween 2011. Each track had a corresponding horror movie cut up and manipulated in real time with video effects live from a Korg Kaoss pad.

The tracks themselves were in various working states on my IPad waiting for the right moment that would force me to finish them. The horror gig seemed as good as any.

While the main programming of each part was done the final playing of the track involved a lot of live mixing with the master grid and substantial tweaking of each part along the way. I had rehearsed the basic structure of each song but it's safe to say there is also a fair amount of improvisation and jamming going on here as well. Thus the word "live" in the album title.

Unlike most "8bit" music from the kids these days my sets (as always) are varied. There is some faster 4x4 beat driven techno here but most is as atmospheric and experimental as all my other work. I guess even within a popular genre I still can't help making it non commercial. C'est la Guerre mon amis

For those that dig something glitchy and all over the place I give you the soundtrack to Discordia October 2011. Enjoy.
