Event 002: Record Store Takeover
Saturday Dec 21st, 2019 1-3 PM
Little Horse Vintage, Books, Vinyl 820 Main St. Louisville, CO
I’m happy to announce a special event at Little Horse Books, Vintage & Vinyl in downtown Louisville. I’ve arranged with the owner to do a record store takeover with the Synth Patrol.
On this mission, the Synth Patrol squad will be meetup members The Aefonic (aka Brian Horsfield), Cold Future (aka Victor John), monoscene (aka Christoph Scholtes) and Newecho (aka me). We will be live sampling random needle drops on random or shopper-selected vinyl to improvise a live soundscape. I’ll accompany all this with psychedelic visuals.
There is free parking downtown on the streets and at the Library. Within a two block radius you can grab lunch or drinks at one of many restaurants, shop for vinyl and vintage at Little Horse, listen to the performance, grab a beer at 12 Degree Brewing (which is in the same building), stroll about and buy local, wander over to Tilt Arcade, and/or finish off your afternoon at the amazing ice cream at Sweet Cow.
Here is a video ad I created illustrating some psychedelic visuals.
Event was fantastic. Thanks to all who came out. Below are some videos from the event.
First up a 1 minute clip from my favorite part of the show. We were live sampling random Iron Maiden samples from vinyl. Brian started this off with a cool muted musical bed and the others join in. I love the look on Christoph and Victor‘s faces as the piece emerges. I was focusing on improvising visuals at this point. There is such a pure joy in improvisation when movements come together like this.
Here is a 6m30s of GoPro highlights from the 2 hour performance.
