BILL T MILLER drifts deep into the SYNTHY MOOGY drone dream ORGY OF NOISE realm wandering lost in time searching for a glimpse of fragmented reality while under a simulated HYPNOSIS TRANCE melting within explorations of splintered glitch dimensions. Drone pulses from Headroom Studios mutate into covered bridges tunnel tripping into abandoned building rust into floating alien outpost airstream trailer control room into staircase escape options and back into the simulated real world of normal BTM grey matter.
There are two different MIXES / CUTS for this video…
- Deep Synthy Instrumental Mix-
pure synth drone mix, where you interpret your vision of what you see and hear.
-Hypnosis Narration Mix-
under self-induced hypnosis BTM reveals his inner dialog ramblings.
Pure MOOG SYNTH DRONE with Moog Werkstatt & Moog Taurus II & AniMoog app recorded at Headroom Studios Boston by BTM. Special THANX to SHERI & ZIGGY CAT.
Musician Producer Engineer, BILL T MILLER's earliest surviving recordings as an ARTIST. http://billtmiller.com/arp/ Recorded in 1976 at BTM's Bungalow Bill Recording Studio in North Hollywood, California on a white-face ARP ODYSSEY into a REVOX A-77 Tape Recorder bouncing the tracks sound on sound overdub style. Originally released on CASSETTE on BTM's label Moon Records in late 1976, shortly after graduating from College for the Recording Arts in San Francisco and moving to LA. * stream or download free audio: http://billtmiller.bandcamp.com * also available on limited edition CASSETTE !
The original audio reel to reel tape has been re-released 38 years later on the Autumnal Equinox 2014.
This recording is actually four different songs, all on ARP ODYSSEY. These electronic music excursions from 1976 give you a glimpse of future BTM experimental rock bands like: OBE & ORGY OF NOISE & ZONKULATOR.
Starting from BOSTON on a road trip to ASHEVILLE, NC heading to MOOG headquarters for chance to play all the MOOG instruments on their showroom floor at MOOG STORE, then zipping up into the Blue Ridge Mountains for a live improv Orgy Of Noise session (with ANIMOOG iPad and custom BTM made Spring Hurdy Gurgy Cirgar Box Thumb Piano) then back the next morning for a TOUR of the MOOG FACTORY with our generous guide JIM from MOOG and then back to Boston.

MOOG STORE & FACTORY
All the SYNTH sounds were created on MOOG ANIMOOG app for iPad.... but MINIMOOG VOYAGER, LITTLE PHATTY, MOOGERFOOGERS from the Moog Store are pictured in the video and photos. The Moog Store & Factory videos and one of the angles on the Mountain Jam were shot on iPhone or iPad using Super8 app & Tilt Shift for the tunnel time lapse. The main camera for Mountain Jam was a Panasonic = DVX-100B video camera, the audio was direct Animoog iPad and the BTM Spring Thumb Piano into a Roland Cube Battery Amp and was captured live to video with a Shure SM-57 microphone. If you listen carefully you can hear the air of the mountain winds and the roar of motorcycles on the road beyond.
