DGK’s Last Show at Try This #3 (Part 1)

Try This #3 was the last show ever for our trio DGK (Jon Davis, Tim Glenn, and John Keston). The good news is that Jon Davis and I have decided to form a new trio in the spirit of DGK with another extraordinary drummer, Graham O’Brien. The new trio is tentatively called DKO and we’re having our debut performance on Sunday, May 22 at the Honey Lounge in Minneapolis. Here’s a great sounding bootleg mixed by Isaac Halvorson of the first part of our final show. More to come.

DGK Improv with Drums, Soprano Sax, Pro-One, Monotron, Posc, and Grain Machine

This 1:52 minute segment of improvisation from the DGK performance at Try This 2 on March 25, 2011 contains drums by Tim Glenn, Soprano Sax by Jon Davis, and jumble sale of gear played by yours truly. These instrument include, in order of appearance, the Sequential Circuits Pro-One, followed by the Korg Monotron, my handmade Sonodrome Posc, and my Max for Live, granular synth, Grain Machine. Prior to this performance I had been limiting my palette of textures to the Rhodes and the Pro-One, but for this performance I thought I would try including the Monotron, Posc, and Grain Machine in order to draw from a few more atonal colors.
