At the beginning of November in 2013, a rather special event took place one night at the Mayan Theater here in Los Angeles. The Gaslamp Killer, with the aid of 14 immensely talented musicians, unveiled an incomparable live music experience, much to the mind blowing delight of those in attendance. This event was known as The Gaslamp Killer Experience. Electronics, strings, brass and percussion all came together to illuminate original productions of GLK, in a collaborative musical event that surely burrowed itself into the fiber of every person in attendance. For those of us not fortunate enough to have witnessed this special occasion in the flesh, GLK has compiled the sounds of that evening into an amazing live album.
The Gaslamp Killer curated a 15-piece band of incredibly talented Los Angeles-based musicians including Amir Yaghmai of Jogger on guitar, Kamasi Washington from The Next Step on saxophone, one of LA’s most sought after musicians, Gene Coye, at the drums and trumpet player Todd Simon, founder of The Angel City All-Star Brass Band. The recording captures the collaborative performance in which The Gas Lamp Killer acted as a modern age conductor, using his iPad to interact wirelessly with the band.
