A REPRESENTATION OF PATCH LIVE:
HOW AN IDEAL LIVE MIXING BOARD
CAPTURE WOULD SOUND

A CELEBRATION OF THE VARIOUS
LIVE PLAYERS OF PATCH - 
THE MANY CROSSED MERIDIANS
OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

"PATCH HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PASSION PROJECT OVERSEEN BY ME, BUT OVER THE YEARS, THE LIVE BAND HAS AMASSED A GROWING REPERTOIRE OF PLAYERS. "MERIDIANS" CELEBRATES THE LIVE BAND, WHERE, RATHER THAN SPENDING HOURS AND HOURS MAKING A STUDIO BASED RECORD, WE TOOK LIVE UN-EFFECTED TAKES. WHAT WE PLAY LIVE IS WHAT YOU HEAR ON THIS RECORD. THERE ARE BACKING TRACKS WITH DOUBLED VOICES AND ELECTRONICS, AND THESE ARE PLAYED OVER VENUE PA'S ON TOP OF OUR INSTRUMENTS. THE REST OF THE TAKES ON THIS ALBUM ARE RAW, IMPERFECT, CATHARTIC IN-THE-MOMENT CAPTURES. 

THESE ARE THE LIVE VERSIONS OF FIVE OF OUR FAVORITE SONGS SPANNING THE "PRECLUSION" ERA, EVOLVED FROM THEIR STUDIO COUNTERPARTS VIA THE DEMOCRACY OF THE ENTIRE BAND OVER THE YEARS.

TAKE A LOOK AT ALL OF THE PLAYERS WITHIN THE PATCH REALM BELOW IN THE PHOTO GALLERY. EVERY MEMBER HAD A HAND IN SHAPING/CONTINUES TO SHAPE THE DIRECTION OF PATCH WITH EVERY PRACTICE/SHOW. THIS RECORD IS FOR THEM, MADE BY THEM."
