LIVE: Project/Object @ Valentine’s Music Hall, 10/26/11

Ray White with Project Object

Project/Object gave Albany a fun glimpse into ’70s Frank Zappa music in a club setting. From the instrumentation to the dancability to the voices, one got to hear Zappa’s signature style throughout the show.

Being up front, I was particularly entralled with Ray White’s performance, as he was quite a visual showman. Another Zappa alum Ike Willis also got down on guitar. The song “Hot Rats” was very well sung by Ike and was performed as a duo, which was a treat.

Atop the keyboards was a new instrument utilizing static electricity that was a cool part of the show. The keyboardist could also play the keys with a harmonica in hand – a nice trick.

It was a fun show, and a big crowd of Frank fans were in attendance for the two-set-long performance.

    I can’t believe I missed this! Ah!

  2. Eric Svalgard says

    The Theramin is actually not a new instrument. It was invented in 1928. What is new is that I am using it’s CV (control voltage) for various parameters of the Moog Voyager.

  3. Mr. Reidy says

    thanks eric, It was new for me.
