Video captured by a friend and great musician Ilona Kudiņa. A special feeling when friends and colleagues come to support. I’ll be returning to Riga on August 31 to play with more of the material and with great Latvian musicians at the Latvian National Library Centenary Gala. Looking forward!
Excited to publish our first track “Day 16” with ABYSS live from Funkhaus studio in Berlin.
Project ABYSS brings together some of the most exciting and fresh faces from Jazz in Europe. Heavily rhythmic and melodic, fusion of avant-garde and jazz exploring the possibilities of electronics, ABYSS paints their musical journey with expressive strokes and intense improvisation.

PLUS Pedal, the world’s first sustain and sostenuto pedal for all melodic instruments, based around a proprietary audio algorithm that lets users capture and sample small parts of the connected instrument’s signal in real time and loop them into a seamless, warm, and responsive sustained tone.

Gamechanger Audio was founded by four friends committed to exploring the uncharted territories music electronics, to create devices that provide real value while stretching the imagination of both musicians and engineers.
The company has been praised for innovation in creating its inaugural PLUS Pedal, the world’s first sustain and sostenuto pedal for all melodic instruments, based around a proprietary audio algorithm that lets users capture and sample small parts of the connected instrument’s signal in real time and loop them into a seamless, warm, and responsive sustained tone; and its PLASMA Pedal follow-up, forming the basis of a unique approach within the realm of overdrive and distortion by transforming the connected instrument’s live signal into a series of continuous high-voltage discharges within a xenon-filled tube. The latter has since been applied to a 19” Rack format and Eurorack modular format.
The company intends to continue this path with it’s next product, MOTOR Synth, the world’s first electro-mechanical desktop synthesizer. Theircrowdfundign campaign is live until the 28th of June – back it and give youself an amazing Christmas gift!
