Magicfunk was a collaboration in 1986 with Thomas Sullivan - Bass, and Dan Martin - Drums; It was based on a step sequence I programed into the Korg Poly-800 and transposed with the keyboard for the chord progression.  I remember having to hit the sequencer button with my nose since both hands on the keyboard.  I used the Korg Polysix for the resonance unison bass keyboard intro.  It was recorded live into a cassette boombox.

Shrieks started with an improvisation:  Mike on the drums and me playing bass on the Polysix, we then arranged and overdubbed parts that fit with a Korg X3; Mike played organ, then we took turns playing parts of the solo.  The Polysix arpeggiator changes phrase length at one part in polymeter with the steady drum beat which makes an interesting  phase shift that was a little challenging to play with, but I like the result.
