Via Dana Countryman on his gear and the upcoming shows:

"Hi Friends,

Jean Jacques Perrey and I have finished recording our upcoming MOOG CD. It will be out on September 25th, on Oglio Records.

We'll be doing special concerts in Seattle (Aug. 27th), San Francisco (Aug. 29th) and Hollywood (Aug. 31st).
Please check our web sites for more info."

"I have a big ol' modular synth in my home studio.


It's mostly Dotcom, with about 25% MOTM modules. I've been working with the legendary Jean-Jacques Perrey for the last couple of years, and we've just completed a new CD of crazy, "Moog" tunes. It comes out on Oglio Records next month.

We're doing a series of concerts on the West Coast at the end of this month to promote the CD. BTW, these are the FIRST concerts that Jean-Jacques has ever done in AMERICA. At age 77, he is still going strong, but who knows what will happen in the future. He is still one creative and brilliant guy, and it's a pleasure to be so lucky to work with him.

Meanwhile, I'm continuing to add to my modular -- trying out different modules from various companies, - selling off ones I don't use, etc. I have no problem, having a "Franken-synth"!"


  1. It's sooo oogie boogie good.

    Smile across my face. W00t!

  2. Glad the CD is finally coming out. Been waiting since I got a listen to one of the tracks in his home studio 3 years back...

  3. I think Dana was and maybe still is working on his solo album. He had JJP guesting on some tracks and then I guess it evolved or they just decided to do a real album collaboration.

  4. Hey isn't that Mini Me's dad?
