Mojo DeVille, who’s lovely voice is featured in “That’s Fresh” invited us to film her and the general scene at the Condor Club in San Francisco for a music video. We had no idea what an amazing treat we were in for. Beautiful creatures, wily characters, rowdy patrons, fiery spirits and the enduring bones of a long standing venue made for an unforgettable adventure.
It’s taken years, but we’re really excited to announce that the Gadgetbox Album is finally here!
Essentially, the story is that Andy Zenczak opened up his studio to us and assembled a series of fabulous musicians who streamed through the studio over the span of three days. The musicians had no idea what they were getting into. They arrived and were pulled right into improvised live recordings that we later rearranged. The result is a rich mosaic of sounds and harmony.
Lately I’ve been riffing on the guitar for my 9 month old daughter, Olivia, every night. Today I decided to take a moment and do a quick recording and bounce of some of the tunes I’ve been riffing on. We’ve been playing it for Olivia and so far she’s been sleeping sounder than ever before! Fingers crossed, maybe this will make life easier and happier for us all.
On December 2nd, 2011, I became a father. Knowing that life was soon going to be dominated by this beautiful and strange alien being, Rob and I spent some extra time in 2011 partying and playing tunes. In particular, in 2011, Deepfried switched technologies and adopted Ableton Live in place of their home brewed sound blending software, the MAX/MSP cuisNart.
After some tweaking and adjusting, tethering foot peddles and ipads to the computer, we reached a new plateau of sound composition. The results are reflective of the process: a flowing, intuitive, rhythmic journey. Often starting with a guitar loop, and evolving into a rich composition, Deepfried songs blend various live instruments and custom beats with a dash of home brewed artificial intelligence.
We’ve got an entry in the Radiolab Remix competition. We would LOVE it if you would vote for us and get your friends to vote for us. We think Radiolab is the coolest thing since the Mini Moog and would love nothing more than to win a trip to meet Jad and Robert and tour their studio.
