Chris Davis is a member of Seattle’s kraut-synth jammers Brain Fruit, also a key member of the psychedelic dance collective MOTOR. This release is the first under his given name, and the first to dive into his abstract improvisations on modular synthesizer. Taken from a performance at the Seattle experimental meet-up series Post Terrestrial, this new CD is Davis stepping away from the tightly controlled and clever structures of Brain Fruit and out, even further from the improv techno of his MOTOR live sets. This is live improv synth work in the recent tradition of Greg Davis, Matt Carlson or Keith Fullerton Whitman.
Note: Chris has decided all forthcoming work in this vein will retain the Chris Davis moniker, while Chris will return to MOTOR shows and releases with a new project name.
