Crash Landing (Live)

While preparing for our performance at the cOMMuN cIRCUiT Noise Festival, which unfortunately was canceled, we assembled the machines at FFS II to do some sound experimentation.

This track, titled Crash Landing, is an electronic experiment from the session.  It’s noisy!  Just the way the Imbued Vagary Noise fans like it!

littleBits Korg Synth Kit

Finally checking out my littleBits Korg Synth Kit.  First impression is that it's not too bad.  Some of the connections are a little "iffy".  Need some more time to experiment.

Utopian Gong (Live)

This track is taken from Imbued Vagary’s improvised, live performance at SHAPE Solstice Arts Festival on 06/20/15.  It features MC2P4 (Synthesizers), Ttam Troll (Synthesizers), and LTJTHC (Electronic Percussion).

Though the recording is a bit distorted, it represents the intensity of our performance.  The battery of LTJTHC propels the song forward while Ttam Troll pulsates a Minimoog Voyager Electric Blue bass line and MC2P4 solos over top on his Korg Z1.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse was a family restaurant located near Chambersburg, PA.  Back in the mid-'80s, it was the scene of my very first public performance as a musician.  I was in a group assembled by my first electric bass instructor, Howard Bly, and consisted of students he taught.  This group was comprised of Jennifer Coffey (Piano), Dirk Frey (Guitar), and myself (Bass).  

On this evening, we played spiritual music in a talent show and though we performed admirably, we were beaten a little boy who sang.  We didn't have a chance.  The cute little kid always wins at a talent contest.

Our little group went on to have a few more performances at local churches before we all moved on to more contemporary musical pursuits.  Dirk and I formed The Secret Society (rev1) with Scott McConnell.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Here is a photo I managed to take this year (2015) when I visited the establishment.  It's a church now and they were having an indoor yard sale.  Where you see the small PA system on the right hand side of the photo is where they had a small stage located all those many years ago.

Radio Shack’s Fail is Ttam Troll’s Gain

It’s sad that most Radio Shack stores are closing.  I could go into the details of this but it has already been much talked about.  You can read about why it failed here.

Fortunately for consumers,  Radio Shack’s demise means that there are some good deals to be had.  While looking through my local store, I came across some very cheap MIDI couplers and the littleBits Korg Synth Kit.  With a savings of about $50 on the kit, I had to pick one up.  Let the synth building begin!

Electronique 5

Recorded live at Der Palast des Goldes in 1989, this shows that Imbued Vagary has been creating electronic Noise for a long time.  Originally titled, Ride it To... (Bugs in the Rug), this improv shows that a Yamaha DX-7 can be used to create Noise too.

Those with sensitive hearing..  You better grab some ear plugs!

Liner Notes:
It has been stated that any art that is perfect is boring in and of itself. True art is a capture of a moment in time out of many moments of boredom and inactivity. To that effect, we present a collection of captured moments for your consideration. Is it perfect? No! But it captures the essence and passion of the moment and that is what this release is all about. Capturing moments of electronic impulses embedded in plastic! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it!

Hummbucker

Floating Fish Studios held Synth Jam 2015 - Snow at FFS II on 02/21/15. The ensemble gathered included Dave Chandler (aka Thee Sub One Genius), M Scott McConnell (aka MC2P4), and Matt Norcross (aka Ttam Troll).

The 2nd sonic exploration of the session produced the Noise track, Hummbucker.  The music jaggedly lurches forward just as Ttam Troll does in silhouette on the left side of the screen attacking a Roland SH-09 and Sequential Circuits Prophet 600.  MC2P4 is off camera to the right on the Moog Sonic Six while Thee Sub One Genius is front and center driving from Ableton Live.

Hold on… This ride gets bumpy!

Storm Clouds

Floating Fish Studios held Synth Jam 2015 - Snow at FFS II on 02/21/15. The ensemble gathered included Dave Chandler (aka Thee Sub One Genius), M Scott McConnell (aka MC2P4), and Matt Norcross (aka Ttam Troll).

The snow storm could not deter the three core members of Imbued Vagary from creating icy electronic music.  The six sonic explorations ranged from ambient soundscapes to Noise.

This live improv is more akin to ambient soundscapes and is titled, Storm Clouds.

Remembering Dan Ebeling

Today's a bit of a sad day.  It would have been my friend's birthday.

I only knew Dan for a very short time.  During my first (and only) year at IUP, Dan asked me to join him playing bass in 10 O'Clock Jazz Band.  I wasn't very accomplished at that age (18) compared to others in the band but I think Dan saw the potential I had and wanted to help me grow as a musician.  Thanks to him and many others at IUP, grow I did during that year.  At the end of the school year, Dan asked me to perform beside him during his Master's Recital.  I remember being very honored that he asked me.  Dan was a great musician and, to me, and even better friend.  He is missed.

Let the Noise Flow

Floating Fish Studios held its first Synth Jam Session of 2014 at FFS II on 04/11/14.  With a concentration on Noise, the ensemble gathered included Matt Norcross (aka Ttam Troll) and M Scott McConnell (aka MC2P4).

MC2P4 sends the output of his original Korg MS-10 through an arsenal of Korg Monotron synths and pedal effects to create a whirling dervish of sound while Ttam Troll manipulates the control panel of a Moog Little Phatty to add even more sonic aggression.

Remembering Miranda

Today would have been my littlest friend's 23rd birthday. Though she plays at Rainbow Bridge now, I know she'd still love to hear me sing her favorite little song...

Prancing Merrily

With the recent loss of Edgar Froese, founding member of the band Tangerine Dream and an electronic music pioneer whom passed away after suffering a pulmonary embolism on January 20th, I’ve been going back through our catalog and rediscovering song ideas that are heavily influenced by his work.

Here’s a song idea from 1990 that was created at Der Palast des Goldes.  Another which was recorded under the Any Questions? moniker but resembles more of an Imbued Vagary styling.  If I didn’t know better, I’d think this was from an early ‘80s era Froese, Franke, Schmoelling line up Tangerine Dream release.  

MC2P4 takes the reigns of our Korg DW-8000 and wails over top of the driving Ttam Troll music sequence which percolates underneath.  It might be a tad long but, hey, Any Questions? is known for doing things over and over, again and again.



P.S.  This photo was taken on 11/24/90 at the very first Any Questions? live performance.

Korg Dastardly Dynamic Digital Drums

In yesterday's blog post, I spoke about our Korg DDD-5 drum machine.  Well, here is the box to our one-of-a-kind Korg DDDD-5.  The extra "D" is for "Dastardly"!  This unit was a collaboration between Korg and Kendal Chandler.  Kendal  added the extra "D".

P.S. This was purchased on 12/23/87 at Washington Music Center (Chuck Levin's) in DC.  I have the receipt if you don't believe me.

Never Had A Name


It's hard to believe this improv was recorded over 25 years ago.  In September 1989, we were exploring new sonic territories at Der Palast des Goldes studio.  Though we had a newly christened band name, Any Questions?, this improv really falls more in line with what has become our Imbued Vagary project.

We had a relatively modest (for us) studio set up at this point.  This was before we had a sampler or our E-MU Pro/Cussion so my trusty Korg DDD-5 drum machine handled all drum chores.  Korg ruled our set up in those early days and you can hear MC2P4 laying down a menacing synth bass line on his Korg DW-6000 while he adds additional melodies and sounds on our Ensoniq ESQ-1.

My nickname for this improv should have been Ttam "Never Stops Soloing" Troll.  Upon listening to this, I can tell that I'm firmly locked into Program 58 on my Korg DW-8000.  I was still quite new at playing synths in 1989 but, listening back, it doesn't seem like it took me long to get the hang of it.

This improv, entitled Never Had A Name, really did have one.  Oh well, I hope you enjoy it!


P.S.  This photo was taken on 11/24/90 at the very first Any Questions? live performance.
