The Gatherings 17 November 2012

by Chuck van Zyl + Terry Furber

The Night Watch 01:04:26


In 2012 Chuck van Zyl joined forces with fellow synthesist Terry Furber of the duo Orbital Decay to play several live concerts featuring their performance collaboration "The Night Watch" - which included the use of Furber's renovated 1969 Moog 1P modular synthesizer. The duo made their concert performance debut at The Gatherings Concert Series on 17 November 2012.

Creating layers of space out of pumping sequencer patterns, strident lead lines and harmonies warm and golden Chuck van Zyl + Terry Furber explore the inner darkness of electronic music, yet out on the verge of ethereality their music gleams like new. Existing on a plane outside the oppressive rush of modernity this music quotes the classics of Spacemusic without mimicking them. Their musical sensibilities evoke a sense of discovery, with each concert marking a new frontier of sound.

Recorded live on 17 November 2012 at The Gatherings Concert Series at St Mary's Hamilton Village in Philadelphia, PA.
