This is a rather long post (with no pictures!), but I wanted to show you what happened in 2020 with your support, despite a difficult year for all of us, and what are the plans for 2021. Please read on and see at the end what lies ahead for 2021...
I released a video to celebrate the Birthday of my mother. I did not know she would pass away at the end of the year just after Christmas.
I performed a KZSU 90.1FM, Stanford, for Day of Noise 2020 and on the show Sound Wheels run by R Duck.
FM+1 Mystery Event was on the 16th February at the Armory Club, still co-organized with Phuturo and with guests: normalien, Jack Hammer XL, and Bealzebabe... This was the last public performance of Jack Hammer XL, he passed away shortly after this show.
I started to produce regularly "Live From the Studio", with a weekly schedule. I received many Modular Synth Artists.
I made a video for NPR Tiny Desk Contest
I performed at Resonant Frequencies 026.
I wrote a short history of Electronic Music in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I released a video on the Birthday of my Sister, who passed away many years ago.
I performed at the Colorado Modular Synth Festival]
I finally got the new Buchla 208c and did a first test drive.
Alvie Adams did a cool artist review on Balanced Breakfast site.
I performed for New York Modular Society.
I performed at Burning Man at Camp Synaesthesia.
I performed at DNA Lounge in San Francisco for Star Crash: From Afar.
I released some new t-shirts, designed by Tech-15.
Like every year, rented a house for my birthday and recorded some music (a new album?). We went around Elk this year.
The online magazine HI-Res Edition did a cool review of the album Symphoney.
I performed at Redacted, a modular synth event Alex Barnett setup with no public and social distancing. It was very nice to meet fellow local artists again.
I performed as part of the band PWRLZRD for Balanced Breakfast Rock Lotto at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco
I hosted Frequency Shift on my channel. This is n event dedicated to women and non binary artists.
I performed for Modular Houston.
What 's coming in 2021
I should perform a quadraphonic piece at Synthplex 2021 in Burbank CA in October. This is a major festival of modular synthesizer and electronic music on the US West Coast. It got postponed a few times due to the pandemic, I hope by then it will be ok to have live events again and I hope to see you there.
"To the Stars" should be released as a DVD in 5.1 sound, so you can get a quadraphonic experience on your home theater system. It is a work in progress and in binaural format on Bandcamp.
There is more to come, a few projects I have in mind. I will keep you informed, but if you know any opportunities, please feel free to reach out, or if you want to tell me more about you, your projects for 2021, in any domain, I'm a good listener, and I really would like to hear from you.
Thanks for reading this far.
