Xeroid Entity's First CD, Moons of Saturn, Available Here
We are very proud to offer at the electro-music.com online store the first CD released by Xeroid Entity, Moons of Saturn. Xeroid Entity is a group made up of three of the founders of electro-music.com, Howard Moscovitz, Greg Waltzer and Bill Fox. The music is difficult to classify; certainly it is electronic. Somtimes it is very relaxed and understated, similar to what is called space music. Sometimes it is more energetic and a bit agressive. At times, the music is jazzy. The only rule is to enjoy playing. Moons of Saturn is a very enjoyable listening experience.
Xeroid Entity in Performance
This release, while recorded in the studio, is made from live performances in early 2003. There was no overdubbing or post processing used. All of Xeroid Entity's music is spontaneous and improvised. The group uses some unusual instrumentation, which explains the unique sound of their music. All three musicians play Nord Modular synthesizers. Bill Fox also plays electric guitars though electronic processing chains. Howard Moscovitz sometimes plays the Neckville electric/MIDI banjo. These instruments are quite rare. The legendary Bela Fleck plays one as well. The MIDI banjo can control any synthesizer. On this CD, Howard used the banjo to play sounds that resemble electronic drums.
We think any electronic music fan would enjoy this CD. Odds are, this will become a collectors item. This release has a production run of only 75 disks. They are professionally-made limited-production CDRs of very high quality. The disks are shrink-wrapped full-sized jewel cases with attractive color artwork.
Moons of Saturn
All three musicians in Xeroid Entity participate in the Xeroid Entity forum here on electro-music.com. They are happy to answer any questions or discuss any aspect of their music. This should enhance your enjoyment of their music.
Xeroid Entity will be touring during the summer of 2003 in the United States and Canada, including an appearance at the Different Skies Festival at Arcosanti, in Arizona.
