On July 11, 1krecordings and web.illish.us kicked off a live in-studio webcast series called 1K Sessions at Philadelphia’s 1K Recordings Studio with a performance by avant-rock trio BASE3, which includes 1K label founder Tim Motzer. This monthly series will feature artists on 1K Recordings, as well as other international musicians. This innovative series is designed to allow fans a firsthand glimpse into the traditionally private and “band only” studio experience, while also transforming the localized studio space into an international performance venue.
Viewers from the Netherlands to Romania to the US were able to tune into an hour long, absolutely mesmerizing set by BASE3, featuring Tim Motzer on electric guitar and efx, Barry Meehan on bass, and percussionist Doug Hirlinger. Their debut album, Darkmatter, was recorded during a one day studio improv session much like this one, and it’s clear that the group works best in a live environment that allows unlimited freedom for their improvisational tendencies to run amok. While the trio establishes a solid groove for a foundation, their playing style is largely in-the-moment and constantly shifting directions, from contemplative, intergalactic ambience and bliss to feverish outbursts of extreme precision.
Be sure to tune in this Sunday August 8, 2010 at 2pm EST to webillishus.com/watch for the next edition, which will feature a performance by Tim Motzer’s solo guitar soundscape project Tilomo. Also, be on the lookout for the upcoming BASE3 release, a collection of live recordings captured from Philadelphia area concerts, titled Live From Earth (1k017).
