Young Scientist, Seattle’s original electronic music group, formed in the 1970s, reunites for an evening of immersive modular and computer based electronic music ambience with Marc Barreca, celebrating the release of his latest CD, From the Gray and the Green.
Barreca, a veteran Seattle electronic music composer, will be performing electro-acoustic loop-based compositions with modular synthesizer, MIDI keyboards, and computer. He has been making electronic music in Seattle since the mid-1970s, releasing a number of projects over the years on the Hawaii-based Palace of Lights label. His most recent releases include the solo CDs From the Gray and the Green, Shadow Aesthetics, and a vinyl collaboration with K. Leimer, Chains of Being, on the Spanish label Abstrakce Records.
Young Scientist was formed in Seattle in the mid-1970s by James Husted, Roland Barker, and Marc Barreca, performing for several years with analog synths, tape loops, and keyboards. Following re-releases of 1970s material on the German labels Bureau B and Vinyl on Demand, the group has reunited for a recording project with Marc and James joining forces for this performance of evolving, transportive electronics.
