Transgalactic Electro-cellist Michael Kott Part 1

Michael Kott and I have been discussing him being on the Twisted Groove for a long time now. He is often times out of the state or out of the country touring and it’s hard for him to commit to a show. The other week I got a call from Michael wanting to do the show. So we put all previous plans for this weeks show on hold and got Michael into the studio for some live treated cello and we also preview music from his forthcoming album and some tracks from a recent live performance. Get ready for some Transgalactic Electro Groove….

I don’t usually do holiday themed Twisted Groove shows but with some prompts from some friends I decided to do a Halloween Special. It was fun to create and varied musically. The show contains everything from horror movie soundtrack music to Black Sabbath. Super fun show…
