RAVENSTINE, ALLEN/WHEELER, ROBERT: City Desk.
In 2012 Pere Ubu’s original synthesiser player, long out of the game, and their current synthesiser player met to be interviewed for a documentary about their shared use of the EMS series synth. (American analogue to the VCS3 over here). As a footnote they played together, because they could – a short exercise that turned into a 2-day session when it became clear to everyone that something important was happening and it shouldn’t be impeded. These two CDs are the result of those sessions. Rich, layered and subtle, all human and machine life is represented; a reminder if one is needed of the organic complexity and warmth of early modular synthesis - before keyboards came into the picture. Just a handful for first comers I’m afraid. Nice packaging.
