This is a quick video about using the new Multi Mode Divider from AE Modular to sequence drums in interesting ways.
This is the very first ever festival to celebrate electronic music in the Begavalley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales in Australia! Ths is an initiative of the Bega Synthesizer Club in partnership with the Bermagui Make & Create Group, the Begavalley Shire Library and Navigate Arts.
We will have a full day of workshops on building and using synthesizers, talks and presentations, jam sessions and an evening of live performances and dance well into the night.
The event will be held at the Murrah Hall, about 10 minutes south of Bermagui. A historic location which has hosted many great and small musical events and is situated in the beautiful bush near the coast.
The 5th Volt is set to perform that night and it will be my first ever live performance!!
In this video I explain the advanced configuration modes fore the TOPOGRAF drum sequencer module from tangible waves.
Using the TOPOGRAF and TRIQ164 to sequence KICK, DRUMS010 and LOPAG for percussion and the NYLE filter to wail in an increasingly frenzied lament.
When you set your filter’s resonance and cut off frequency JUST SO that it sings, but a fraction more and it would scream … then move back a little and towards it again. That’s resonance surfing and the AE Modular filters sound really beautiful while doing it.
I’m just amazed how things are going this year, it’s a crazy roller coaster ride! It’s a year of firsts for me: First time making music, first time uploading videos to a YouTube channel, first time contributing a track to an album and now this track has been played on the radio on the Star’s End show from Philadelphia.
This is what the about page has to say about this show: ” STAR’S END is (with the exception of “Music from the Hearts of Space”) the longest running radio program of ambient music in the world. Since 1976, STAR’S END has been providing the Philadelphia broadcast area with music to sleep and dream to. “
My favourite band of all times, Tangerine Dream, is being played there alongside Steve Roach and many other classics and new comers to spacey electronic music.
And now The 5th Volt has been included alongside these heroes of mine!
Trying for something faster this time. The AE Mini is really great for sequences using the lo-fi delay and then going through the Zoom for reverbs.
In this video I’m showing how I’m using the NYLE filter in the AE Modular system from tangible waves.
Today we released the first collaborative album that features the AE Modular synthesizer. I’m happy that so many people helped with the production of this album and that we found so many artists that contributed their work.
I’m also very proud to have one track on this album myself … this is my very first release of my music on Bandcamp!
