Gabes DJ Set 2015-03-19

I got the chance to play the regular Mixology night at Gabe’s in Iowa City, and for the past few weeks I’ve been collecting tracks I wanted to play and fiddling around with a DJ setup for them in Live. I had two impulses — play current and current-ish music that I like, and to […]

Live @ I Hear IC 2015-02-20

http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2015-02-20-Live.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2015-02-20-Live.mp3 The idea of I Hear IC is to gather people from Iowa City to present brief performances in a local coffee house. Peformances were in the range of 10-20 minutes. Other performers on this night included Jazz singers, an improvisation from two Iranian musicians and a small ensemble improvising a new soundtrack for […]

Live @ PS One 2013-03-19

It was cold and snowy and there wasn’t much in the way of an audience, but I got to try out some new stuff. Starting about 14:00 I have a section that samples (well, granulates) Milk & Eggs aka Jordan Sellergren. It ultimately bears only the most tenuous relationship to the original music which is […]

2012-11-17 Chaircrusher DJ set.

So this was a vinyl mix, which means it isn’t as perfect with respect to mixing as my Ableton Live sets. It’s more fun, and scarier, actually, and track ordering is more spontaneous. I did a few level adjustments and cut out the skips at the end of Mercedes Boy, but other than that it’s […]

Chaircrusher Live @ Gabe’s October 11th 2012

I had a fine time, though it would have been great if more people showed up — I mean I’m used to playing to mostly empty rooms, but we had guys in from out of town who hit a deer trying to get there. But hey, Thursday night at Gabe’s — hard to draw a […]

Past Shock – Chaircrusher Live 1996

My friend David Talento was trying to organize his studio and found some cassettes I’d sent him in the 1990s. The real find was what may be the last remaining copy of tracks by Jason Welch, local rave promoter and sometime musician. But I’ll deal with that stuff later. One of the other things is […]

New Music @ Bandcamp: David Talento + Kent Williams Memoriam

http://chaircrusher.bandcamp.com/album/memoriam Recorded this last Saturday Night. David Talento came for a short visit and we set up and jammed with what was at hand. I’m a huge fan of what David got out of the DX27 and an EH MemoryMan pedal — he could do a whole live set just with that.

Chaircrusher Live @ Blue Moose 08-04-2011

I played last night opening for Ex-Action Model, Binary Marketing Show, and Dream Thieves. I’d have to say that this may have been the strongest bill I’ve ever played on. Totally rad. But anyway here’s my set.

2010-12-04 KRUI DJ Set

[audio:http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2010-12-04-KRUI.mp3|titles=2010-12-05-KRUI DJ Set|artists=Chaircrusher] http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2010-12-04-KRUI.mp3 I usually have a track listing, but I left it at the studio last night, so you’re going to have to be surprised. Various 80s dance pop obscurities and hits, some house and a lot of Detroit techno, ending up with the Afx remix of 808 State’s “Flow Coma”

Attack of the KRUI DJ Sets

The past 2 Saturday nights I spent in the KRUI studios playing vinyl. I make no great claims for my mixing skills, but I guarantee this is 100% real for better or worse. Rather than, as I have in the past, manually type in an HTML table, I made my track lists in Google Docs. […]
