"Party Lines" is a record that features more vocal elements than all of my previous solo efforts combined. Many of the vocals were recorded from a Casio CK-500 "groovebox," which is a curious gizmo consisting of 2 tape decks, an AM/FM radio, and a keyboard. The audio from the CK-500 was often modulated with various Korg Kaoss pads, which then fed an Eventide H3000B harmonizer. Many drum tracks were recorded after the vocals were printed, giving me an opportunity to better match the vocal rhythms (such as they were) with appropriate rhythmic support on the drums. This record also features many analog synths including 3 Mother 32 semi-modulars, MicroMoog, MeeBlip, Cube, and MS-20, all driven by a Korg SQ-1 step sequencer, receiving its timing clock from CV derived from the trigger inputs of the live drums (particularly bass and snare drums). What? Well.
