This week we head back to January, 2013 for the fourth “Show Without Words” in the Radio Free Charleston video library. This is also our only show with no host segments. By this point I’d run out of gimmicks.
Our music in this episode was provided by Doctor Curmudgeon and TriElement from Charleston and special guests, Grounded, from Asheville, North Carolina. Computer graphics throughout this episode are courtesy of Frank Panucci. The show kicked off with the cartoon, Too Many Amps For Doctor Curmudgeon by Jason Myer.
Our first musical guest for this show was Doctor Curmudgeon, who cut loose with a largely improvised nine minute sonic epic. This incarnation of Doctor Curmudgeon saw maestro Chuck Biel back in the saddle on guitar, loops, and power tools, joined by the amazing Sean Sydnor on bass, and incredible C.W. Riley on drums.
From Doctor Curmudgeon, the show blends into a performance from Asheville, North Carolina’s Grounded. In this show we brought you an excerpt from “Its Everything Except What It Is! (Improv 01)” You can find the full performance posted as an edition of Sunday Evening Video.
From Grounded, we meld into TriElement. Kenneth Booth, Dave Roberts, and Joey Lafferty man this tightly run progressive metal trio. We wrap up our show this week with two numbers from TriElement.
