Czech Mate: debut tomorrow night at The Wisco

What is Czech Mate?

Image by Katesteeth

Czech Mate is my new project based on improvisation and looping.  I play my guitar and drum machine through my 2880 looper and craft instrumental sketches on the fly, mixing and remixing live with the little digital 4 track.  Guitar parts will spawn out of my delay, tremelo, fuzz, and volume pedals.  A lot of jams will just happen through playing with the rhythmic delay pedal.  On some songs I may pitch shift or reverse parts too, so things start to really morph into something unexpected.  Then I will play over the loops with more guitar parts or drum kit.  For people who know my past experimental sets as Nasty Thom & The Dirty Husbands (wonderfully named by John) this will be a lot like those.

I am playing tomorrow night at The Wisco with Forget The Times and I can’t wait.  Those guys really play!  Come see for yourself!  Tomorrow, 9:30pm, $5, with Troy Schafer’s band Rain Drinkers.
