A video come out back in October from Synth jockey Peter Grenader, who’s worked with Danny Carey numerous times, in particular his Toolbox synth from recent Tool tours and the track Chocolate Chip Trip. Below is a Youtube clip of him twiddling some knobs on Danny’s synth. Importantly this video has a comment:
Yup! Was just over there last week, going to be back this week. Working on a a couple of projects with him currently. One is directly TOOL related, so i cant speak about publicly and the other is getting two “e “series Buchla synth modules integrated into his vintage Buchla 200 (before the E series) , with an additional power supply required to do that right. Of course there is also our ongoing project we’ve been working on together for years – determining if elves are real without the aid of liquor. 😉Programming 21/7 time for Tool in the age of COVID – YouTube
No idea what will come from this, we can speculate that it’s some kind of new recording, but who know really. I get the impression that while Tool are probably doing some writing in this downtime, I imagine we’re quite some way from this material coming to fruition. Perhaps there’s something in the works though….
