Recording: Kenton Smith

Artist: Kenton Smith

Songs: two unknown songs*

Recorded at The Steady Café (Somewhere There + MFS present), July 24, 2017.

Kenton Smith - [first track]

Kenton Smith - [final track]

Somewhere There asked me to help put on this night hosting some new friends from Atlanta. To complement the visitors (and to bring in someone from outside the regular Somewhere There circles), I asked Kenton Smith to perform some audio experiments. On the cusp of the release of his p0st3rb0y tape release, he brought a stripped-down setup to try something different, building elaborate tracks from just a Kaossilator and a multi-effects pedal with no pre-recorded loops or samples. That kept the music on the cusp of spinning out of control as it was wrestled into wriggling, glitched-out songforms.

* Does anyone know the titles to these? Please leave a comment!
