mark verbos - live PA, Septmeber 25th, 1999
Recorded live in Mark Verbos' studio as a demo of what his live act sounds like. Obviously this is a little dated, but is presented for the sake of history. Equipment used was an Akai S-5000, Alesis MMT-8, Roland TR-909, Mackie 1202 and Boss SE-50.
mark verbos - acid live PA, April 4th, 2005
on the heals of the successful, old school acid live acts played by
Mark Verbos during the Winter Music Conference in Miami, this set was
recorded in New York to showcase the sound of one man and Roland's
masterpieces, the TR-909, TR-707, TR-808, MC-202 and TB-303. All music
was improvised and recorded live to DAT. Tipping his hat to the acid
revival, Mark returns to his roots at 118BPM!
mark verbos - analog hardware live PA, June 26th, 2006A little acid, a dash of minimal and tons of noise and dub effects. After a year of touring the new/original style of live act this set was recorded in one take in Mark's Brooklyn studio. Still no pre-programming, edits or samples. The gear was all analog and the technique was improvisation. Slow and dark.
