>>a seasonal sub-series of Eklektro Karavan Breakbeat of the Week >>
(free-form cyber-jam videos: shot, edited and uploaded from the road)
(from the Solar-Sonic studios of EklektroKaravan's rotating nomadic cast and crew!)

(vids are listed in descending order: blogger style)

Happy May Day! This month Eklektro celebrates 5 years of tech-nomadic living...
commemorating our west coast landing, orbiting of LA, followed by the many karavans that ensued... who knew? More news on the DVD soon...

LAST WEEK! (4/15/04) episode numero cuatro::

reaching the southern terminus of this year's migration, a month of adventures develop upon
one magic beach! Revelations indeed, released in 4 pieces ::
"Revelations" (episode 4)
(quicktime mp4 movies)
'drive' 2:40, 8mb : Observations of a virtual astronaut, plying the alien atmospheres
'arrive' 2:50, 8mb : Solar-sonic: made in the shade? "Stuck" in paradise!
'thrive' 6:40, 15mb : DJ Propane Albatross sets it up: Spring Equinox party: Playa de Passion
'LIVE' (with The Alien Children) 15:00 (coming soon hi-res on DVD!): Beach invasion: Semana Santa family jam. Try a taste-test by clicking EklektroDesperado then checking out part 1 and 2 of SemanaSanta... enjoy!

"Revelations" was shot, edited, produced, uploaded by E>K>G "on location"
in vicinity of Playa Mal Paso (Beach Shitty-Road), estado de Nayarit, Mexico
(this is what happens when the spaceship sits still for one entire month, in paradise):
All electronic music composed, recorded and remixed by E>K>G(reg)/eklektro.net
additional vocals by iMagika (also to be appearing full-length hi-res on DVD).
MC'd by alter-ego Transgressor: (the 2 performing-artist entities within one person finally split at the seams with an outpouring that couldn't be contained in real-time, nor one timeline!)
continued thanks to hermano Pd/Paolo. expatriate thanks to Aaron (DJ Propane Albatross) and artist AndieAlive.com as angelic welcome-wagon to the region; to the unknown owner of this tierra privada for unwittingly letting me stay crash-landed here; Los Monos Varios and everyone who helped stoke the fires and ring in the Spring at Playa de Passion; and super-especial thanks to La Familia Lamp y amigos, for a Semana Santa surprise beach-invasion: camp-out / cook-out and jungle jam we'll never forget! Muchas gracias! (this last bit accessible via
EklektroDesperado)
and as the fates do dictate: "Revelations" will be the title for the first of several Eklektro DVDs to be released in chapters over the next year. As our digital nomadic debut disk, "Revelations" is targeted for release in May04 upon return to LA. Yes indeed, extravagant excerpts of this rough-cut Breakbeat of Week episode will be available in hard-copy high-res full mix version! Please email to be kept abreast of release date info.
