This drone got out of hand. It started with two oscillators and 4 filters then some modulation of the filters, some delay and then a bass, some percussion and playing some notes on the keyboard with real time modulation of delay time via the mod strip.
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.
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.
Just a droning meditative piece to celebrate that winter is slowly ending and that we can look forward to warmer weather.
Here is a little jam from my new studio setup. After many weeks of low energy, creative block and procrastination I finally took the time to sit down with my synths and try to merge them all together into a short jam.
Just jamming with the AE Modular …
This is my second jam for Jamuary 2022. This time I’ve been playing a lot with modulation. Random modulation of the Nyle Filter via the RBSS, LFO modulation of the Core.ae from Wonkystuff and a rhythmic modulation of the waves from the Wavetables via the SEQ8 sequencer. The cool thing in modular synthesis is that you can use a CV/Gate sequencer for so many other things than just pitch.
My first jam in 2022 … enjoy the sounds of the Wavetable module which is going through a delay which is just so slightly modulated to produce a very satisfactory wonky sound.
This is a xmAEs patch which I came up with, as usual completely by accident with detailed explanation of the patch in the second half of the video.
Just a quick jam with the TBD and Cirrus in the really small Synth Explorer system.
