What is Doppler Effect?

Doppler Effect has been a creative force in music for over 30 years. Doppler Effect's founders began making music together in 1979. Since then Doppler Effect has had a long history of collaboration with a wide range of unique and talented musicians.

Doppler Effect's discography, spanning decades, is diverse. Over the years Doppler Effect has incorporated many styles and technologies in their recordings. From it's earliest live experimental music to the latest state of the art productions Doppler Effect has always been about boundless spontaneous musical and lyrical expression. In addition to Doppler Effect's own recordings, members of Doppler Effect have been involved in the productions of many other musicians.

Who are Doppler Effect?

Doppler Effect was formed August 14, 1980 by Kol Marshall, Nick Kane and Bob Plotlin, with the recording of "Sheesh Recorded Live". Doppler Effect credits John Cale as an honorary founder. Cale helped us decide upon the name Doppler Effect, and performed with us as his "back line" at our first live performance on November 27, 1981 at a club called Stillwend in lower Manhattan, along with Emory Anderson and Angela Guethlein. It was an honor and a privilege to perform with Cale, and an inspiration to us all.

History

Doppler Effect's founding members are:

Kol Marshall performs and sequences keyboards, plays guitar and bass, as well as other odd instruments and found objects, and vocalizes. Kol produces and engineers for Doppler Effect as well as for many other artists, labels, recording studios and corporate clients. Visit Kol's website at: www.kolmarshall.com

Nick Kane vocalizes, programs drum machines, plays guitar, plays odd instruments and makes found audio samples and sound effects. Kane has authored many of the Doppler Effect lyrics.

 

Bob Plotkin performs Violin, synthesizer, and vocalizess on many releases. Bob has written an ode to Splurge, submitted for our 20th anniversary.


Emory Anderson plays Tabla Drums, Bass, and performs Backing Vocals on many early Doppler Effect recordings. Emory also wrote lyrics and music for several songs which first appeared on the Hard Core 1984 album. Visit the History page where Emory tells the story of how Doppler Effect got it's name.

Angela Guethlein performed on many early Doppler Effect recordings playing keyboards and bass. She was also co-author of several songs from the 1984 era and performed bass and backing vocals during live performances.

 

John Cale led the first live performance by Doppler Effect with Emory Anderson, Kol Marshall, Bob Plotkin and Angela Guethlein as his supporting backline at a club called Stillwend in lower Manhattan in November of 1981. Cale was also responsible for helping choose the name "Doppler Effect".Here's a link to his web site http://www.john-cale.com/
