  "...The R Duck Show is an exercise in experimental music, and according to its host, "an experiment in releasing our expectations of what 'music' is." Part mash-up, part psy-trance, part independent beat music, R Duck's audio montage will push the boundaries of your musical comprehension..." from Vision Magazine
by Indigo Moonstar

The R Duck show is a cooperation between man and machine in order to sculpt organic, improvised electronic music. The show nods its head toward old time variety shows and modern radio -life in the day- spoken dry as the coastal sands at low tide. Tune in for live improvised electronic music drama, performed by the host and a rotating chamber of special guests, using a variety of multi-effect sound processors, a studio microphone, a pickens of conventional and unconventional acoustic instruments and mass market software run on a handsome custom built portable computer designed by Happy Guy studio.

Every week, story and music strive to describe contained space by including all it is not and remembering all it is. The proximity with its surroundings gives absolute love, existence dependent on the other with no concept of fault, error or judgment. Shifting the outline of sounds and their content through the use of electronics, the host of the R Duck show blurs the outline, spilling contents, mixing one to another, finding a new figure when each piece births a new outline with and without pieces distinctive to the original, lying completely separate but completely dependent on their mutual presence.
