After trading in his keyboard as member of now-defunct New York cult band Apes & Androids, Morgan Z, aka Chrome Canyon, has spent the past couple of years creating music fit for a sci-fi disco party. Using a mix of rare analog synths like the Korg PE-1000 and Theremin, and inspired by dystopian daydreams, his original productions could very well be the B-sides to the Tron soundtrack, or the score of a Lars von Trier film. We recently spoke with Chrome Canyon about his days as a classically trained pianist, movie soundtracks, and his recent signing to Stones Throw Records. He headlines Mezzanine this Friday with support from Peanut Butter Wolf, Jonas Reinhardt, and Shock.
