The Collectiv @ WVKR

I’m pleased to report that we not only survived our first live radio show unscathed and without major technical difficulties, but we had a fantastic time joining Vassar for Radio Active Lunch!

Our set kicked off with an improv electronic jam by Psychic Napalm (consisting of Carl Welden on theremin/vox, Rob Snyder on laptop, and Dana Flavin on bass).

Bob Lukomski followed with a short solo set featuring sequenced analogue synths, vocoder, and an iPhone as a central processor. Stochastic (Kris Bernard) then contributed a dark & moody piece featuring granular synthesis and otherworldly vocal samples. Creeper (Jack Peeler) followed up with his signature gritty, glitch-y, and undeniably danceable sound. Ghost Orchid (Amanda Newman) then mixed things up with an electronic piece for sword dance, drawing influence from the middle and far east.

The set was rounded out by an improvisational jam featuring several of today’s Collectiv performers.

Here’s what it looked like behind the scenes…

Sadly due to technical difficulty (the only one!) we were unable to get a recording of our set for the archives. If anyone listening to the stream happens to have one, we would love to get a copy.
