“We have harmonies, which you have not, of quarter-sounds and lesser slides of sounds. Divers instruments of music likewise to you unknown, some sweeter than any you have, together with bells and rings that are dainty and sweet. We represent small sounds as great and deep, likewise great sounds extenuate and sharp; we make divers tremblings and warblings of sounds, which in their original are entire. We have also divers strange and artificial echoes, reflecting the voice many times, and as it were tossing it: and some that give back the voice louder than it came, some shriller, and some deeper; yea, some rendering the voice differing in the letters or articulate sound from that they receive. We have also means to convey sounds in trunks and pipes, in strange lines and distances.” —Francis Bacon, c. 1620
The Eaton-Moog Multi Touch Sensitive Keyboard
In addition to my time as Marketing Manager at Moog Music, I also did printed circuit board design work for Bob back in the 90s. The Eaton-Moog Multi-Touch Sensitive Keyboard is the main project on which I worked.
Billy Cardine :: Moog Lap Steel
Mix cutting-edge electronic vibration control technology with an instrument born on a train track, put it in the hands of musical omnivore Billy Cardine and the result is music with one foot in the past, one foot in the future and both ears wide open.
It can’t all be about experimentation, at least not in my book. You have to leave the lab every once in a while and put it into practice. My album Xenography was created to not only scratch my creative itch, but to put into practice the techniques I’ve learned over the years.
“…an album of inspired soundscapes. Feel free to stream it first if you have any doubts. Rest assured that mere seconds into the first track, you will know that you are in capable hands.” – Ted Stahl
On “Xenography” an array of synthesizers, piano, nylon string guitar, Moog Guitar, shakuhachi and voices pure and processed, come together to give you, if nothing else, a grand tour of the inside of my head.
