Recorded at The Baby G (Track Could Bend #39), June 5, 2018.

Barry Prophet - [last section]

In between homes, the TONE festival was kind enough to let Track Could Bend share its space at The Baby G for an extra-early outing before their event. A touch less intimate than the typical TCB surroundings (though brought in a little closer by bringing the action down off the stage), the trade-off was a chance to have an excellent sound-tech and a big PA to listen to some electroacoustic explorations. It's always a joy to have the series serve as a meeting place for emerging artists as well as those with a longer track record of enriching the city, so I was quite honoured to have sculptor and sound-shaper Barry Prophet in attendance. With his Moog theremin and sundry other electronics, Prophet created some very tasty oscillations, setting the tone for the night.

[The next Track Could Bend, with sets from Debashis Sinha, Luyos MC and No Seas, will be taking place at its new home in the basement of Wenona Lodge on Tuesday, August 7th.]
