Chain D.L.K.

"Minneapolis Summit" is the name that was given to the improv session that took place on October 1st 2001 and that saw the participation of local Jon Nelson (aka Escape Mechanism), Steev Hise (Portland, Oregon), Jon Leidecker (aka Wobbly, from San Fran, California) and John Heck & Lloyd Dunn (aka The Tape Beatles, from Prague). The peculiarity of this experiment is that the five guys did not plan or rehearse any of this, they just met inside a Minneapolis radio station and set up the toys they brought along (mainly laptops, samplers, digital players), digitally recording them through an analog board. The outcome is three long songs of which only one is included in this 3" mini CD. 21 minutes of real time cut & paste performances with found sounds, samples, political and non vocal recordings from different sources and people etc etc. A second mini CD and a video CD related to this project will see the light soon as well. In the meantime you may find more info or buy your copy at
