A lot of people ask me : Is that a Moog? or That's a Moog!

But the best was the lady with her husband who asked "So you found this?" "No I built it" "You found this by the side of the road? That's Amazing!" hmmm.....

Did an all-modular show supporting Honda's ASIMO robot a few years ago (see pic)

A woman came up afterwards and asked "so, you're controlling the robot with all these cables, right?"

one of his clients runs in and says "HOLY SHIT, NO WAAAAAAY"

then runs over to the $10 pink piano toy in the corner and plunk plunk plunks on that for 20 minutes.


That guy has his shit together.

I have worked a ton of shows doing everything from tech work to security. One show I was side stage on the floor the whole set for a local opener band. After the set a bunch of people came up and told me how great of a show I put on. Then at a dance event the MC was mentioning the same band playing a future show and pointed towards me causing everyone to cheer me on. So I have basically got the reputation of the phantom member. I am pretty good friends with that band so they luckily don't mind too much all their credit gets diverted to me.

2 best comments to some shows I played in Japan a few years back:

"It was interesting but boring"

"Your music made me want to eat cantaloupe"


And after a show back home in Chicago:

"What the fuck was that? Its not even noise."

You guys are lucky. My friends come over and flat-out refuse to even touch my gear. It's almost like they think it runs on nuclear power or something and they'll grow another arm. I twist the fuck out of the knobs to show them it's all good, but no dice. I just want someone else to play with my stuff. waah


Don't frett! I'll glady play with your gear nanners

That reminds me of comments me and my brother got after doing our first noise/drone/mess about.

"I can see what you are trying to do but, no!"

"So is this dungeon music? you should use samples of women screaming"

I played with three friends for several years, including a rack of frac gear that was mainly used for "On the Run" in our set-long Pink Floyd medley.

One night after three sets of 100% covers, (Floyd, Allman Bros, Zappa, Cars, REM, Residents, Springsteen, ZZ Top, Hendrix, Neil Young, Rush, etc etc etc), a nice lady came up and asked, "So did you guys write *all* those songs?"

Yes. Yes we did. meh

Nothing against the kaoss pad, but running $25,000 of analogs through a $400 processor doesn't make much sense.

If you don't have $25,000 invested in your modular, you don't need to worry. The Kaoss Pad is great fun.

I've only played out like 2-3 times, years ago. Ran into a guy I had a class with once, drunk out of his skull and got "what the fuck kinda gear you got man, it's like you got a fucking modem with you".


Once had a bandmate who'd attach himself to one technical term and use it over and over again completely out of context. His favorite term: LFO.
As in, "that sound needs more LFO's man" and "what sort of LFO do we need to get a bass sound like that". I tried to explain the whole modulation thing, but the dude just wanted more lfo's.

I have had every version of the Kaoss Pad. If you get the gain right the KP3 can work well with modulars, especially live. the earlier ones less so.

However it is a damn shame they never made one with with really great converters, or at least SPDIF. I don't like to use them in the studio very much
