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!
Imitation is Flattery was the motto for this patch challenge. This time I wanted a track that slowly builds up to chaos, blends into a blissful order and then returns to a crescendo with an abrupt ending.

Inspired by the awesome performance last Saturday by my friend Scott of Abre Ojos, I tried my hand at composing an ambient drone track using just the AE Mini and his friends the Volca Sample and my brand new Volca FM!
This drone jam was inspired from taking my AE Modular into the bush. enjoy the beautiful scenery and the jam!
This is an experiment with square waves and logic gates. Two oscillators are pitched slightly apart and sending square waves to a logic gate which sends out 3 different output signals: NAND, AND and XOR. Those are then going to various filters and delays before being passed through the MultiFX module.
More information available in the video description.
The AE Mini Modular is the perfect companion for the Zoom MS70-CDR multi effect pedal. After the last dancey track, I felt like making a dreamy track with just the Mini.
