Pat Gillis began performing as TL0741 in January 2005, presenting structured improvisations on analogue modular synthesizer and effects combined with pre-recorded material. The sounds of TL0741’s alchemical multiverse arise from everywhere: nocturnal insects, incomprehensible voicemails, obscure antique pornos, treated instruments and decontextualized / processed location recordings. Synthesizers are persistently exploited for drones, unstable automata and inharmonic gestures harnessed from the electrons. By design, no two performances of the same piece are alike. Recordings of these have been the basis of each new CD release or fodder for further manipulation deployed in entirely new material.
