A live recording from last Saturday. I was doing a warm-up improvisation for a prog band Moonwagon at their 10th birthday concert. I joined them later on stage for a few older tracks (I was their keyboardist in 2008-2013 and was on two first albums). It was a hoot! Anyway, this one is a 6 min chunk of my 20 mins set. It was just me with three synths and a couple of damper pedals... they are extremely useful when playing alone on stage... the piece is again very 70´s... but this time it was what they asked for smile

Happy holidays etc, for all of you! Just one week to go!

Damn impressive chops!

The stereo effects are very impressive for live.  Fell like I'm in the room and hoping there was a fog machine going off to compliment the white noise. Aside from those damper pedals, it sounds like you may have three hands. Very full sound. Please let me know if you are ever playing anywhere near Brooklyn or NYC in general. Would love to see this live!! Merry Christmas

Thanks a lot! Yes, there actually was fog machine going off  smile Regarding the three hands, I actually often use a CD-player as a "helping hand" when playing live in a one man configuration. I usually prepare a sort of effect track with some pad sounds and FX elements in the right key. I let it run in the background and fade it in when needed to fill the gaps, when I change sounds etc. I also have a some long sounds that have certain amount of "life" in them, which are nice to press and keep on playing with the help of a damper pedal. To be honest, there was also a couple of bum notes before and after this particular segment...

Thanks! Much appreciated. Usually it is just me trying to survive and thinking "what I should I do next?" smile  But I somehow like the idea of having to more-or-less improvise in a solo live situation... it makes me try harder... like a swim or sink situation.

I agree the stereo is awesome on this and it would have been a trip to experience live.  A fantastic space voyage.

It's also what we asked for, and you delivered.
