The Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble and strings perform the entire Depeche Mode album Violator, start to finish, completely live, with no pre-records or sequencing. For the 20th anniversary of this auspicious album, hear it live, as you have never heard it before.
The Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble combines acoustic instruments, electronic hardware, composed material and structured improvisation. The Ensemble treats analog synth as a rare and unpredictable performance instrument. The Ensemble’s contemporary electroacoustic music, is performed and recorded live with no overdubs or sequencing.
Also appearing: Monks of Doom. Monks of Doom were formed in 1986 by four members of the ever-popular college/indie rock band Camper Van Beethoven.
Released twenty years ago in 1990, Depeche Mode’s seventh studio album continued a commercial and artistic flirtation with the American west, the guitar, the synth, and the sampler, all while stretching the structural form of the pop song and was named one of Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
