My foray into live performance. I set up a patch with the Generalized Resonator and controlled the VCO pitch and other tracking parameters with the keyboard. I’m playing the monophonic keyboard in this performance. A cool feature of that keyboard was a random sample and hold switch that I used to spice things up. Note that the patch sounds a lot like a step sequencer. But it’s not. I seldom use a step sequencer, because I find them overly deterministic. A sequence-like effect is obtained by a combination of LFOs. The live sound was powered by a 400-watt Cerwin-Vega amplifier driving two Cerwin-Vega PA speakers with 18-inch woofers and horns. It was magnificent! This recording is the best quality of those posted here, due to the use of metal tape without noise reduction.
