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.
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.
Talking to HAND Tapeloop at Superbooth 2022
I had a wonderful time with Sascha, aka HAND Tapeloop in his studio which is actually right on the same grounds as Superbooth! Sascha’s perspective on making music with the AE Modular is shaped by his practice as a drummer and also from making music with tape loops.
Talking to Toby at Superbooth 2022
Here I talk with Toby who approaches the AE Modular by designing very creative faceplates and DIY cases.
Talking to The Tuesday Nightmachines at Superbooth 2022
It was great to catch up again with Felix aka The Tuesday Nightmachines at Superbooth 2022. He was instrumental when we set up the AE Modular Forum back in 2018 and he has done incredible work promoting the AE Modular systems with his videos, reviews and tutorials over the last few years.
Talking to Kyaa at Superbooth 2022
Here I had a great time chatting with Toms aka Kyaa who came all the way to Chicago to meet our small AE Modular group and to show off his newly developed 2AUTO module.
Keurslager Kurt at Superbooth 2022
I had the joy of talking to Zeno aka Keurslager Kurt at this year’s Superbooth 2022. We were talking about how he came to love the AE Modular system, how he started developing his own modules and what his new modules are all about.
You can buy Zeno’s modules from his online Tindie Store and you can find links to his social media and bandcamp pages on the AE Wiki Artist page.
Talking with Wonkystuff at Superbooth 2022
I’ve interviewed John Tuffen from Wonkystuff at Superbooth 2022 and we were talking about his path into AE Modular, his modules past, present and future and how he prepares for his amazing ambient performances.
Please visit the Wonkystuff website for more information about his modules and the AE Wiki artist page for links to John’s various artistic projects.
Robert’s Performance of the Demo Patch at Superbooth 2022
This is my first video from my time at Superbooth 2022. Here you can see and hear Robert from tangible waves perform the “Demo Patch”. This patch was used to showcase all the new modules we were presenting at the booth.
Presenting Euclid Grid
I’m introducing Euclid Grid by Kyaa, a new module for the AE Modular system. I have been a beta tester for this module and I’m incredibly impressed by it and had a lot of fun playing with it. You find more information on how to purchase this module here: https://kyaa.co/product/euclid-grid
