Morgan Geist /
RENDEZ-VOUS 1er ANNIVERSAIRE / 1st ANNIVERSARY
friday, february 12th
MORGAN GEIST (Metro Area - NYC)
To make a long story short ...
The seeds of obsession sown, the idea of acquiring one of these
fascinating instruments increasingly occupied Geist’s young mind.
He distracted himself by making tapes of groups like UTFO and
Whodini off of New York radio stations and borrowing scarce
Depeche Mode and New Order imports from a European friend
at school. Finally, Geist’s dream came true in the form of a
four-track tape recorder, a primitive sequencer
and a synthesizer (not surprisingly, a Roland). He was 15.
Four years later, Geist left the East coast for Oberlin College in Ohio.
Initially inspired by England’s take on techno in the form of 808 State
ART and Black Dog Productions, his newfound proximity to Detroit
allowed him to track the genre back to its Motor City innovators such
as Derrick May, Carl Craig and Underground Resistance.
