Cable Patch Kids use toys and groove boxes, old synths, drum machines, effect pedals and a ton of patch cables. While not averse to utilizing computers for editing and remixing compositions, the collective creed is to keep the spirit of an old school machine jam.
The various members of the Cable Patch Kids have between 25 and 3 years of experience twiddling away with gear.
Other names the members either used or were associated with are : Derek Lotek, Buen, Silverlage, Alis, JJ Nova, 37ghost, The Super Heroes of Tomorrow, Dezah... to name a few.
We are passionate about creating interesting mega arrangements of found sounds, overlapped rhythms and just general sound collage.
Occasionally, at underground parties or art openings. Live is best. Our geographic disparity makes such things difficult, but we have a plan to get out more often.
