Armen Nalbandian | prepared fender rhodes

The recording was made by performing primarily on the inside on the fender rhodes treating the rhodes like a percussion instrument, manipulating the hammers with drum cymbals, snare drum heads, wrenches, mallets, and keys. Nalbandian also employs an analog delay pedal as well as a wah-wah pedal.

Recorded at The Roundhouse
O'Neals, California on June 21st 2007

Recording Engineer | Nino Moschella
Mix | Nino Moschella
Album Artwork | Ara Nalbandian

Spontaneously composed by Armen Nalbandian and published by Blacksmith Brother (BMI) unless otherwise noted below

"Blues to Steve Lacy" is composed by Dave Douglas and published by Green Leaf Records (BMI)

Thanks | Ara Nalbandian, Chris Bravo & Noise Boutique, Dave Douglas & Greenleaf Music, Fred Frith, Roswell Rudd, Nino Moschella, Charles Alexanian, Columbia University, WFMU & Transfigured Night, and Bill Dixon

"Young Kings Get their Heads Cut Off, is an abstract and experimental improvisation for prepared fender rhodes, full of distorted reverb, controlled delays, noisy feedback and altered hammers for a unique percussion, all recorded live with no post-production - john cage would have been proud."
