Fun with the MicroStAEtion

I was inspired by Matt Wand’s jam at Superbooth and have been thinking about the little case for a while since. I think it is perfect for really getting to know one or two modules really deeply without being distracted by all the other modules in a bigger rack.

Here are my first two videos I made with this rack and I’m sure more will follow in the next few weeks.

Superbooth 2023 – HAND Hear what you see

Sascha is a really consummate artist and his work flows between the rhythmical (he’s a drummer by trade), the ambient (he gives workshops on how to make music with tapeloops) and the visual. For his visuals he’s interested in making sound visible by using old, fluorescent oscilloscope and sending audio into them which he programs using Pd, a graphical programming language for programming sound.

AE Micro Modules – Part 1 – Sound Mangling

Here I’m demonstrating the following micro modules which are great for shaping, distorting, destroying or otherwise mangling your sound: µTONE, µDISTORTION, µ2SIGAMP, µBITCRUSH, µSUBOCTAVE. The micro module system has been released mid last year and has already revolutionised the AE Modular system by tangible waves by making the modules even smaller!

Robert Langer – A Patch from Scratch

In May 2022 I visited Robert and the tangible waves team at their headquarters in Murnau in Bavaria. After a series of interviews and videos about the production workflow, Robert showed me his little sanctuary, a former chapel within the building which he has rented to play music and to get inspiration for his module creations. Here, Robert is showing us his process of creating a performance from scratch in the style of Klaus Schulze who had just died a few days before we recorded this video.

Live at Elk Elektronik in Wollongong

I performed live at the Elk Elektronik Synth Sessions in Wollongong, where I demonstrated how to create an 80’s disco track from scratch using the Synth Explorer from tangible waves with a few extra modules.

AEther Waves Vol. 4 – RELEASED!

It is my pleasure to announce the release of the 4th AEther Waves album made by the amazing AE Modular community!

Just like the volumes before, this album is filled with a surprising variety of styles and moods.

Please think of purchasing it so that we can support Musicians without Borders and the awesome work they are doing by bringing peace to war torn regions with the power of MUSIC!
