Missing Man Foundation

missing man foundation

Laptop ruminations meet unprepared guitar for a circuitbent listening experience. Missing Man Foundation is a live collaboration between Cal Lyall (Pfeuti, FDF, Cod Head) and Peter Slade (Pfeuti, Legofriendly). After the release of Panic Button on Soundispatch back in 2001, Missing Man Foundation had infrequent slots at events in and around Tokyo (Bullet's, Seco Bar, Velvet Sun), usually with a guest musician in tow.

More recently, MMF makes a more regular appearance at Test Tone, a monthly Soundispatch event at Super Deluxe in Nishi Azabu. Their music takes a semi-improvised approach with push-button guitar, sampler and electronics responding to the beats and shifting, filtered textures of the laptop.
