"Technorgano" was the result of an interest in making techno like music without MIDI or sampling.  I was virtually penniless at the time.  I wanted to create a form of organic techno, hence the name "Technorgano".  I used scraps and whatever cheap effects I had lying around.  Fellow SOI member Kevin Hodgson was kind enough to lend me his Moog.  And so I recorded this CD "Hello" in my basement apartment on a four track during the summer of 1999.

The title of the clip below, "Molested Balloons", pretty much describes the song.  The rhythms are all based on balloon sounds manipulated through effects.  A Moog and a mandolin manipulated through effects were used for melody.  I was inspired by
Judy Dunaway to do this song after I heard her work with balloons.  I was driving home in my car while listening to a community radio station that was doing a spotlight on her 1998 CD , "Balloon Music", which had just been released.  I was so enthralled I pulled into a mall immediately and bought some balloons.  And so there I was, a grown adult sitting in my car in a mall parking lot playing with balloons to the amusement of passersby.
