Album Notes

My friends at KFJC 89.7 FM Foothill College, in Los Altos CA, invited me to perform live as part of a four hour special featuring my music. Because this station is special to me (it's where I performed my first live event ever, in 1980) and because they celebrate experimental music, I wanted to play an improvised concert as much as possible. Some of this gear appears for the first time in my live rig. This means that I make mistakes, and sometimes the notes aren't perfect. I like this because it's real, it's what I do. You can see a bit of my process, warts and all. (Some of the ideas here surfaced on my 2015 album “Filaments” and some find their ways into other tracks as they evolve.) - Robert Rich

Robert Rich played DSI Prophet 12, Korg M3, Eurorack Modular with SynthTech, STG, Intellijell and other modules, lap steel guitar and PVC flutes, computer control from Ableton Live.
