Mitchell uses a mixture of modern and vintage gear to create soundscapes inspired, in part, by the work of mid-century electronic musicians.
The performance comes from the 2014 Knobcon synthesizer convention. Mitchell’s live rig consisted of two signal generators through guitar pedals, EMW-200 mini-synth, Roland SP-404 and a mixer.
The track is a live version of When Robots Started Dreaming, from the album City Of Chrome And Glass. See atomicshadow.com for more.
“The basic track was initially put together from a stereo recording that I made in an old elevator equipment room,” notes Mitchell. “There were a lot of open faced relays clacking open and closed.”
