White Dog - Harvestman [Prairie Fire - 2010]

The SK-1 was pretty much one of the last keyboards manufactured by Casio that was cool.  Along with its more sophisticated cousin, the SK-5, the SK-1 made sampling technology affordable back in the mid-80s.  I still have mine from way-back-when which I bought at the K-Mart I was the cleaning person for.  Still works like a charm...  Of course the one other cool thing about the SK-1 was it's tone-building engine which I don't think any other synth had...

White Dog is a noise project from Canada, and this CDr release does feature an SK-1, with contact mikes and field recordings.  And as such, you really wouldn't know it without looking at the back of the sleeve. 

There's some amazing sounds here that make me wonder how they manage to produce from such basic equipment.  The whole recording sounds like it could've been performed outside somewhere.  (In a largely rural place like Canada, anything is possible though...)

This release is limited to 65 copies, so this may be hard to find.  But if you're a big fan of Wolf Eyes (come to think of it, that name...), it's probably worth looking for.
