Happy to be #965!

thanks!

It has been a while since I had time to record a video! Started a new job and all and performed for the first time (and second time within a week).
I performed this track at Arcana in Durham. Unfortunately I only got a few grainy videos to show for it. So here is a simplified studio recording.

Sounds lush! Some of the sounds remind me of what Autechre were getting out of their Nords in the mid 90s.


Here's my latest one, maxing out a single track on the Digitone..

Are you using the reface dx here or is it just backdrop? Love that keyboard!

This week:

Lovely track! Nice lush sound design. That setup looks great btw; I like the placement of the three volcas at the top.

I only used the DX as a controller, in the tutorial video, which was recorded in the same session:

I'm late <_<

Finally got around to doing a tutorial vid (my original intention) rather than just a music video

Featuring last weeks track!

Somehow messed up the recording this week and  only got a mono version sad
Can't go back or re-record since the patch is already gone. Such is the nature of live recording...

This is great! I may have to come up with my own set of dice to direct my patches!

I'd love to hear what you come up with! the modular has always been an interesting instrument compositionally, as you're working a lot more on creating a 'system' to create a song moreso than doing traditional sequencing and songwriting

with that in mind, I would think that some sort of direction relating to the overall 'structure' of the patch would be the most potent form of inspiring new work

rhythmically: 16th note straight sequencing vs free running lfo clocks only vs krell patch syncronised clocks only vs clock divided rhythms only
harmonically: restrictions on voice or polyphony, specific directions to change keys mid track, (single voice polyphony can let you go crazy with fm for example, something you can't do when trying to harmonise multiple voices)
texturally: directions about thickness, loudness, and when to include/exclude textural content
formwise: juxtaposition between different sections (a section and b section leaning towards different 'genre') very specific buildup breakdown sequences

Sounds sweet!



Here's a version of my weekly beat (plus a second piece, made up on the spot) from this week recorded in my garden today:

I once forked a project by Tom Whitwell and started customizing it to my needs. The idea is to describe an entire album worth of tracks with specific constraints and directions. I may need to revisit that and implement your suggestions. You can play with it here: https://codepen.io/kohlhofer/live/PmgwjB

Right now I have just enough time to make a track each week, though sad

Been meaning to start putting up some videos of my WBs for a while. Is this something people like watching?

This weeks tracks is a live noise-techno jam with my puredata rig and a portabella

Can not speak for all the people but I enjoy it smile

Here is mine this week. 4 phase shifted LFOs at the helm.
