i was afraid it was just gonna be all percusion
yeah, the carrot flute was excellent.
in the last tune, the guy second from the [our] left, is playing a bassline on something that sounds like it has a short delay on it. What is it?
rad! i wanted to see footage of this for a while: are you something to do with this jp?
We now need a porkestra.
@zanf: you are right (i should have never posted this here... you can look through all our secrets) it's an eggplant with a very short delay and she's playing it with a wooden spoon.
@cbit: yes, i am part of this. guess which one is me.
OMG I am profoundly in love with these guys, I want to marry them x10!!!!!!
it's an eggplant with a very short delay
haha that's so cheating! couldn't you create an echo chamber out of... celery or something? ;)
ace work by the way!
holy lols at the carrot (or whatever) flute!!!!
we loved your gig @ synch (athens, gr)
jp - how much of the performances are prearranged? if you tell me its all improv you get 10000 bonus points
@delete: synch was quite hard for us & the vegetables. we had to do the soundcheck in the open greek sun. the vegetables didn't like that. :-)
@mynameismud: some parts are improv some are not. the piece in the beginning has a precise score. the second piece is improv. the last in the video is 50% improv.
but we don't use playback or anything like that. only very few FX. at the moment only reverb and some delay.
this is awesome! it's going to be all over the net in the next few days. good work jp.
you should do a tour but instead of playing music venues, all the stops should be farms.
