The Melting Transistor with Mike Hunter… Petrifried

The Melting Transistor had the pleasure of playing with Mike Hunter this past weekend. Mike brought out his Modular Synth and an Analog Sequencer. We had a great time and a Great Jam. I hope you dig it!

I hope I’m not redundant but Floyd said it best so I will just copy what he wrote before.

The Melting Transistor are proud to announce the release of two new bandcamp albums featuring two excellent local musicians. The first one features Mike Hunter who many will know by his artist name Ombient . Mike has released several albums of excellent ambient electronic music and also hosts a radio show called “Music with Space” on WPRB in Princeton. Our music has been featured and we’ve performed live on his show but this is the first time we’ve had the opportunity to record together. Mike was kind enough to bring his Moog Sonic Six synthesizer to the studio along with his guitar resulting in two extended improvisations.

As if that were not enough, we were also fortunate to play with guitarist Karl Fury who brought over a very cool electronic guitar and with his laptop produced some wildly experimental sounds. The session with Karl resulted in three long recordings that we believe contain some of the best material that we’ve recorded so far. We invite you to check out these albums on our bandcamp page and feel free to download them as well as our other material.

The Melting Transistor had the pleasure of having Mike Hunter join us for a great jam. Mike is a great friend and a WPRB DJ hosting the show Music With Space. Mike has had us playing live on his show twice and is kind enough to play our music regularly on his show. I hope we get to present more jams with Mike Hunter present.

Optimus Spacemus By The Melting Transistor

The Melting Transistor recorded Optimus Spacemus Like all the recordings that we have done to date. Our jams are unedited or minimally edited. All tracks were recorded live with live looping and recorded only in stereo with no multi-tracking. Enjoy the journey that is Optimus Spacemus.
