Friday's sure-to-be-awesome concert with High Wolf, Hair and Space Museum (members of Midday Veil), and Megabats will also feature local synth guru Norm Chambers aka Panabrite. Panabrite's put out some great material on local cassette label Gift Tapes, as well as way-cool imprints like Bum Tapes and Digitalis (who released his stunning, hypnotic Contemplating the Observatory).
Chambers will be contributing to High Wolf's must-see set, adding some local flavor and far-out synth textures. High Wolf operates behind a nigh-impenetrable veil of mystery, so it's remarkable word about this guest appearance was able to get out.
Gift Tapes founder Jason Anderson has described Panabrite's music as a "submerged journey toward a glowing pearl," and said of a recent live set that Chambers "[created] some truly vintage new age scores to a fantasy landscape degraded on VHS.”
The Road Goes Ever On echoed this sentiment, saying Panabrite "makes electronic music that could score 1970’s National Geographic films of coral reefs and deep sea exploration."
This is great news, and if you'd like to hear some of Panabrite's trippy sounds for yourself, Contemplating the Observatory is available as a free download from this link. We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday--it's going to be a mind-expanding experience.
