[EL010] PYXL8R – Live In Princeton
Ethereal Live welcomes PYXL8R to the net label for it’s tenth release. Ken Palmer is the man behind the PYXL8R name and is an active musician and graphic artist. Ken creates ambient and electronic music as PYXL8R, and is also a member of the prog rock band Brainstatik.
“Live In Princeton” was performed by PYXL8R and broadcast live from WPRB 103.3 FM in Princeton, NJ on Februray 4th, 2011. All music was created live with keyboards, percussion, voice, and effects only. No sequencers or recorded backing tracks were used in this set. This set featured Ken Palmer on synths and vocalizations and Kyle Palmer on percussion and ipad.
This release is a wonderful blend of dark and mysterious music, with a minimal approach, allowing each sound and tone to come and go as it washes over the listeners. “Live in Princeton” is fine space music that leaves a lot for the mind and ears to soak in. Highly recommended.
