Hosted by Chris Conway (well-known local musician) & Bob Bryars (Quad Studios). Quadelectronic is a unique inexplicable monthly event. More of a "happening" than a regular gig. An improv, jam, workshop event for those that love to experiment and interact in free improvisation.
"Cities In Flight" documents one of the finest, and certainly the most consistently great, diverse and creative of events to date. So good in fact that we "had to release it". Funds from the sale of this will be split between UT and Jim Tetlow who is otherwise financing all the recording, editing and duplication out of his own pocket. Good of him, but we know there's bound to be some of you out there that would love to hear this!

This page documents the genesis and history of Quadelectronic, which grew from gigs organised by Chris Conway at The
Musician in 2004 to 2006, then "Impromptu Electronic" sessions at Bambu in 2007-8, involving local musicians from Chris Conway improv projects: The Planet Scanners and Continuum, along with projects involving the Freeman brothers (Alto Stratus, Endgame, Extremities and Triax)....more
