In 2000, Mikael Jorgensen and fellow NJ-expat Chris Girard were working on music together. They summoned Mr. O’Keeffe to Chicago to apply his rhythmic sensibilities to some songs, and thereby formed the first incarnation of their band called Pronto. After listening to the basic tracks, which were expertly played and recorded, a decision was made to abandon most of the instrumentation, and replace them with synthesizers and music technology of any variety.

The analog synthesizers and music software provide a stimulating context for these songs to unfold and develop within. Here is a case of an electronic music record that doesn’t fully appropriate the “clubby” or particularly “dancey” cliches.
