released September 2, 2022
The first of two nights opening for Stick Men. Night one, recorded by Robert Frazza at the Sellersville Theatre, is a 34 minute improvised sonic journey for acoustic-electric guitar & electronics for the unsuspecting audience there. These improvs resemble dreams in a way. Dreams can suddenly take crazy turns and morph into other scenarios, atmospheres, and places in a flash. At least that is how it feels to me sometimes as I am playing. I hope you will enjoy this recording. Thanks to all the listeners at Sellersville Theatre performance. It was indeed a pleasure to play for you, and meet you after the show! Thanks to my friends Stick Men (Tony, Pat, Markus) as its always an honor to open for you, and to Robert Frazza for the great sound! Thanks to Leo at MoonJune for making it all happen. -tm
Tim Motzer - Live at Sellersville Theatre (1k060)
"Taking center stage in a chair, he tricked everybody by strumming an acoustic guitar, but it quickly became obvious that this wasn’t going to be a solo, Windham Hill-style set when he started playing it with a violin bow. From there, he took off on a non-stop journey setting up finger-picking loops that sounded sometimes like Leo Kottke and others like Derek Bailey on speed. Psychedelic fuzz-guitar solos screamed out of this acoustic instrument one moment, then he beat it like a percussion instrument with twang. Motzer is gifted with a melodic sensibility that he likes to shatter into shards and then bring back in another form. He created a totally free-form improvised ride, but one that had a magnetic center. It was a night that felt good for the future of Prog in many of it’s manifestations."
