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.
