electronic space music
Moons of Saturn was recorded in 2003. It is available at electro-music.com Here's what vidnaObmana had to say about Moons of Saturn:
As you well know, I'm not so into Berliner school-orientated music but what you achieved on this album is far more than just being influenced by this genre. The experimental vein of the album is really interesting and the moody tonalities you use on the keyboards is very soundtrack-ish. Especially the first 4 pieces are really strong and fascinating.
Some comments from Mark Andrews on Xeroid Entity's performance at the Deer Head Inn (January 2004):
I saw Xeroid Entity play live improvised electronic music last night in a small jazz club in Pennsylvania. Wow! Congratulations to Howard, Bill and Greg! Three full hour-long sets of pure inspiration. It amazed me that three very different musicians can improvise on over ten synths at once and make it sound like they could read each other's minds. In honor of playing in a famous jazz joint, they even incorporated a little "beatnik" style bongo and wah-guitar section during one piece. And Howard later took off on an avant garde jazz piano solo during the 2nd set. All combined with Greg's Nord Modular comping and Bill's amazing E-bow guitar work. Lot's of fun. I wish there were more opportunities to see shows like that. Put me on the list, guys, when the recording is done!
Robin Miller's thoughts on the Deer Head show:
I had the opportunity to hear Xeroid Entity live at the Deer Head Inn in Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania - a respected jazz club that has launched many fine acts. I must say it was highly enjoyable. I am only sorry our party's plans allowed us to stay just for the first set. As I told the Inn's owner and the group during their break, it was highly enjoyable and "transportive." If that's even a word, it describes as aptly as I can the out-of-body experience one feels with their music (and I was drinking cranberry juice). Being live, at first I wanted to watch. Then I closed my eyes and didn't want to open them. The sounds took me away from the here-and-now as it progressed so musically from movement to movement. Not just showing off samples or just emulating anything you've heard before - but "real" music nonetheless. I am not astute in their instrumentation, so I can't say I could identify this box or that, just that they were so together, as any musical ensemble strives to be. Their preparation showed. And the sound quality was like a fine stereo and no louder (or softer) than I play mine at home. Try to hear them for yourself. I hope you agree - Xeroid Entity is art.
