Like our popular PIANOSCAPE disc, VIBRASCAPE presents the sound of the vibraphone in a uniquely Optigan fashion. The keyboard tones are arranged as rhythmic patterns that create hypnotic, pulsating soundscapes when multiple keys are played. (This disc is not particularly suited to melodic playing). The chord buttons feature sustained bowed vibraphone chords. The special effects switches keep the groove going with rhythms from the Maestro Rhythm King MRK-2, a rhythm machine from the Optigan era.
SPECIAL EFFECTS SWITCHES: 1. Samba, 2. Rumba, 3. Bossa Nova, 4. Bolero, 5. Go-Go. LEFT HAND: Bowed Vibraphone. RIGHT HAND: Vibraphone Rhythms. Vibraphone played and recorded by Mark Greenberg. Music produced, edited, and mastered by Pea Hicks. Disc creation software, disc production cover artwork and jacket layout by Robert Becker.
