The R Duck show is live electronic music sculpture. A long running 2-and-a-half-hour friday night radio program (since 2001) broadcast live from Santa Cruz, Ca. The host, R Albert Duck, sometimes with guest artists, assembles and re-assembles various sound sources to create a living aural landscape for listeners to enjoy at home in comfort, perhaps with a cup of tea and a tasty snack treat. Enjoy a live appearance for the opportunity to hear some ear teasing delights and join the taste-test of the evening's chocolate, or in season, sample some home grown honey from the R Duck show downtown studio apiary. The R Duck show sits inside an improvised musical moment.
R Albert Duck is an audio/video artist with a history in electronic music spanning two centuries, from writing generative music software for his, then new (1983), Olivetti M-10 to assembling a modern VCF for eurorack. His sonic ventures defy linear logic, often proceeding in what would appear to be backwards trajectory - only to arrive yet again working in the present time. He has performed in a variety of musical settings including: artist in residence, sound engineer, drummer, percussionist, re-inventor and software beta tester.
