The Electronic Closet

"Geomancy/Night 1980-1982" is a recording of an experiment in improvised live performance of Electronic Music by a single performer pre-computer (MIDI) control.

 I had (have) been influenced by Artists- Wendy Carlos (Switched on Bach- 1968), Emerson, Lake and Palmer (Oh Lucky Man- 1970), Larry Fast (Electronic Realizations for Rock Orchestra- 1975),Todd Rundgren (Initiation- 1975),Tangerine Dream (Phaedra- 1974),Yellow Magic Orchestra (Yellow Magic Orchestra- 1979),Brian Eno (Here come the Warm Jets- 1974) , Kraftwerk (Autobahn- 1974), Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft (D.A.F.)-1980 Gold und Liebe. 

All these influences can be found in this recorded live improvisation. (remastered by JCG 2022 from the vinyl pressed by Music from Memory 2015).

In 2015 I was "found" by Music from Memory... I had sent out cassette tapes in the late 1970's early 80's 
all over the world. It was part of the musical independence movement (Punk/New Wave) 
happening in San Francisco and other Cities around the world at the time. 
 Apparently one ended up being kept for near 40 yrs. somewhere (much to my surprise). 
Being the nomad I have been, it was very difficult to locate me.
 But Music from Memory did and negotiated to print Night/Geomancy to vinyl.
