At Critter & Guitari, we like to make music anywhere: the kitchen table, backyard, the recording studio, in the middle of anywhere. We're bringing our Pocket Pianos, Kaleidoloops, and Video Scopes for one night only for folks to jam on and explore sound with.
Chris Kucinski and Owen Osborn have been making music together since 1998. They began building battery powered home-made electronics as a way to take their art/jam sessions outside, and eventually gained enough intest in their simple instruments from friends and consumers for Osborn to open the Critter and Guitari online storefront. As the original beta testers, Kuckinski and Osborn have developed various games, rules, and scenarios to guide their improvisations, and every sound recorded by their Kaleidoloops is saved to flash memory, uploaded, and tagged in their ever growing online database. They came to the WFMU studios with a sack full of children's instruments, some guitar pedals, and many generations of their own musical hardware for a series of free-roaming, circuit-bent mini odysseys.
