Looking for a keyboardist who has the ability to create his own parts for our songs. Bonus points if you can songwrite/compose as well. More bonus points if you have a good understanding of music theory (and can teach me some of it, heh).
We are a new band (though in some senses a reincarnation of a previous band of mine) and our goal is to practice 1-2 times a week for a long time, then release an album and tour regularly, playing our original songs (and maybe a few covers here and there, but our goal isn’t to be a party band).
I have a good set of synth gear (including a Roland AX-7 keytar, a Korg MS-2000, a Yamaha DX-200, a Kaoss Pad and more..) that will be available for your use as a member of our band.
Our sound shall be full of texture and flavor, sometimes quite harsh. Not silly little synth tricks of our time that sound dated as soon as their recorded. Some influences (don’t worry if you haven’t heard of very many of these as long as you do have broad influences…): Skinny Puppy, Throbbing Gristle, Brian Eno, Pixies, Christian Death, NON (Boyd Rice), Tangerine Dream, NIN, Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Leather Strip, Laibach, Boards of Canada, …
Creativity is more important than skill, but you need to have some skill, heh. Our music is highly electronic, so you will be the star in some sense and will make or break our sound. Up for the task? E-mail me or leave a message at 760-912-1856 if I don’t answer.
