VIDEO: Knytes begin a “war of synths”

After years of holding out, the mikroknytes have finally succumb to peer pressure by acquiring analog modular synthesizers. John was the first to bite, he picked up a custom built modular Norwegian synth guru Rob Hordijk. Severe Synth envy followed, which resulted in Derek filling up 2 shelves worth of Eurorack modules in a “trendy” Monorocket Skiff. Both have started recording and here is a little taste of mikroknytes to come!

VIDEO: Black Cat Backstage (1999) – Mikroknytes, Trance and the Arcade, and Chris Coady

Thanks to Marc Masters we have documentation of an early mikroknytes collaboration with Trance and the Arcade (Chuck Bettis) and Lostless at Black Cat’s Backstage on December 6, 1999. This was most likely the first time Chuck and I performed together before our duo collaborations which eventually lead to Brown Wing Overdrive 6 years later. The visuals were provided by Marc Masters, Gus Kyriacou, and Allan Callandar. My introduction in the video explains the concept for the evening.
