Open the Light

There is something more that shines through all that we do and feel. Deliciously polyphonic and full of healing love, “Open the Light” is a gift made of gifts. Thank you so much to Alexander Bernat​, who has taught me and so many others about power of kindness and the joy of giving. Mad Dog Friedman on oak flute and Theremini. Alexander Bernat on Celtic harp.

Drones for Peace Launch

It’s done. 17 tracks and over an hour of pure Theremini bliss. Not like anything I have ever done.  Not sure who might like this. Not sure why I am releasing this. Ultimately I feel if you resonate with it, I would be be happy to give it to you, it is all about connection and healing, so just message me on Facebook at facebook.com/maddogharp and I will send you a free download code.

The Whole

A taste of the last tune from my new live solo Theremin CD, Hand in the Machine. (Download at maddogfriedman.bandcamp.com.)  I wanted to try and make my Theremini into an an electronic singing bowl that shimmered with harmonics and dripped with drone.  My pedal board along with its Electro-Harmonix Superego and  Ravish Sitar pedals figure predominately in this ruse.  I finally got my “AIR HARP” spaceship to take me where I want to go. Now I am not sure if I will ever be able to find my way back again. 

Hand in the Machine (Oh Why Oh Why Oh Why?)

My hand is deep in the machine on this one, not caught there, but flapping around like a fish, and with each wiggle to try to get off the hook, I feel like I might break free!

Fixing the Faucet

This is the latest taste of my peculiar illness. This is live, solo Theremin therapy. I hope you find some relief in this as well.

Please let me know what you think.  We were trying out some new effects today!

The Mojo Medicine Show is an unique blues duo that blends the jug juice of 1930’s juke band music with the electric kool-aid jams of the 1960’s.

The original Mojo Medicine Show toured the western slopes of Colorado in the summer of 1976. This ragged and hairy troupe of musicians, Gypsy fortune tellers and belly dancers performed their way into the hearts of many a mountain town. It is in this tradition of Colorado’s own home grown, psychedelic, back porch blues that the Mojo Medicine founder, Mad Dog Friedman, decided to create a unique blues duo that captures the spirit of those amazing times. This new incarnation of the Mojo Medicine Show features Mad Dog Friedman on harp, vocals and Theremin and Dan Crecco on washboard, percussion and iPad synth. The modern Mojo Medicine Show puts down the real deal, hippy trippy blues seldom heard in this day and age. From their contemporary, simple, heartfelt, rural-rooted blues to their vintage, analog, improvisational, experimental, aleatory ‘lectronica, the Mojo Medicine Show offers a unique alternative to today’s throwback, retro-folk and refracted root music scene.
