Too tired to sit around and chat we just started to play and had this recorded, mixed down and on the web site in under two hours!

Bicycle Powered Madness

paul

The first public performance organised by The Magnificent Revolutionary Cycling Cinema. We put on a 20 minute performance. Live loops made by thrashing a bike with some drum sticks, followed by some live guitar and a it of audience participation. We mixed down the loops in the studio into this…

Studio version

Update : George from the Cycle Cinema made some recordings of the gig including a live recording of our performance.

After Tim left the band we realised that we couldn’t perform the old material. This meant that we were free to experiment with different ways of working. We started playing with Ableton Live on a laptop. We soon discovered we could build up tracks much faster, almost in real time. The following tracks are edited versions of tracks which were recorded in one take.

The artwork is another old kozyndan CD cover.

Demo 2 – April 2004

At this point we had out live set more or less ready to go. Shortly after we got the demo together Tim left the band so we never got to play most of this material out!

The artwork is care of luckydisc.com, who did sell blank CDRs preprinted with some rather cool artwork (they seem to have closed shop now but you can still find some of the artwork at kozyndan.com).

DAC Installation 2001

demo1

The DAC installation was an all day event in June 2001 in the Cambridge Museum of Technology featuring installations and music. The following tracks were written for an installation I built using small speakers playing down large cardboard tubes. The tunes were mixed to sound good on the tubes but the final mix actually sounds pretty good on more conventional speakers.

Float

We did a performance i the evening with me doing a live mix of this material while Paul and Tim played Bass & guitar.

First demo

demo1

This was our first demo from 1999 when we were still called MKUltra. This demo got us a place in the Cambridge Band Competition and a chance to perform at ‘The Junction’, Cambridge in front of a packed audience. The crowd liked us and we even got some record company interest!
