I’m happy to announce that Matt Borghi & Michael Teager‘s new live album Awaken the Electric Air: Live from Star’s End, October 20, 2013 is now available. As the title indicates, this is a recording of our full live set on WXPN’s Star’s End, a pillar of ambient music hosted by Chuck van Zyl. This performance was part of Matt’s and my exhilarating promotional tour of Philadelphia. Our set included renditions of two selections from Convocation as well as a number of new pieces. Aside from being broadcast live over the airwaves, our performance was for an intimate in-studio audience during the 4:00 AM hour following our 10.19.13 performance at The Gathering.
From our newsletter’s official announcement:
“The music on this CD comprises live renditions of several selections from Convocation, as well as new compositions that include fresh performances by Teager on flute. Recored live at Philadelphia’s WXPN in the World Café Live studio and housed in packaging that’s comprised of original photography by Star’s End host and veteran electronic musician Chuck van Zyl. Our brief time in Philly was magical and welcoming; it’s satisfying that we were able to truly represent these special moments musically, and with the help of Echoes producer Jeff Towne the recordings are superb.”
We’re proud of this performance and happy to make this available to the public. To keep from stealing Convocation‘s thunder, this is somewhat of a “soft launch” for now. The album is currently only available for hard copy purchase – a digital release is months away. Until then, hard copies may be purchased via Kunaki or at live performances.
