Chris Korda
Chris Korda
Chris Korda is an innovator in electronic music, and pioneered the use
of polymeter in techno and electro in the early 1990s. Polymeter is
the use of multiple prime meters (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 etc.)
simultaneously. When a song's instruments are in different meters,
they "drift" (shift phase) relative to each other, and periodically
converge much like the planets in our solar system. The result is a
hypnotic, trance-inducing interference pattern of rhythm.

Chris will be performing all new compositions, using custom sequencing
software written for the occasion. The compositions explore
permutations, many of which won't repeat themselves for thousands of
years. Chris Korda's previous recordings were released on
International Deejay Gigolo Records and Kevorkian Records, and are
available online at YouTube, Internet Archive and elsewhere.
