Dekalb, Illinois experimental rock band CMKT4 stopped by Theatre Intangible for an improv and artist showcase while on tour. You may know drummer Austin Cliffe as Creme Dementia on the circuit-bending blog GetLoFi. We’ll release the artist showcase in the near future, but for podcast episode 23, we present to you the improv: Artificial.
Artificial stars CMKT4 (Austin Cliffe, Zach Adams, and Jeff Cox) and regulars Laurence Crow and Craig Schenker. CMKT4 played a variety of circuit-bent toys, a guitar synth, and hand-made bottlecap contact mics (which they make and sell.) Craig played saxophone and Larry played laptop synths and sampled Craig’s sax. I did the live mixing, editing, and mastering.
This is a pretty insane improv, and it may turn out to be one of my favorites. Enjoy.
