ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Prior to forming synthpop band Tycho Brahe with Georgina Emery in Brisbane in 1993, Ken Evans partnered with fellow electronic musician Paul Lawrence in a late '80s house music duo in Adelaide named Club House. The duo had a residency at an Adelaide nightclub called Infinity in September/October 1989, and would perform onstage with synthesizers, a sampler, a drum machine, hardware sequencer and four go-go dancers on podiums. A cassette player with a prerecorded 30 second "Club House Theme" was utilized between songs, to allow the half-minute required to load sample and sequence data from floppy disks into the onstage equipment. Whilst some 4-track cassette recordings were made at the time, none of those compositions were professionally recorded.

Ken Evans retained the programmed data and most of the equipment used by Club House. In 2017, working from the data programmed by the duo in 1989, which had been carefully archived on floppy discs and cassette tapes, and utilizing the same synthesizers, sampler, sequencer and drum machine used 28 years prior, Evans revived and reworked the Club House song "Acitech". Most of the original programming, sounds and samples remain, but with updated production. The mix is named the "Infinity Mix" as a sentimental reference to the nightclub where the song was performed live. Infinity, previously known as The Toucan, was located at 181 Hindley Street in Adelaide, and as of 2017 the same building still serves as a nightclub.

The recording is credited as "Tycho Brahe vs Club House" as it spans both bands of which Ken Evans was a member, and whilst not strictly a Tycho Brahe release, neither is it a Club House release - it stands as an odd hybrid utilizing the almost three decade old programming of one creative endeavor, and the production techniques of the other.
