After a nice break during christmas/NY Im back into working on the Sekuential live techno and a remix for FutureForm. It will be a little while until I pick up some pace with updates but for now Ill share with you a picture of my newly built modular keyboard voice and a jam using the ERM midi clock Analog Rytm and modular rack.
So after two weeks of shuffling and shifting countless cables and objects I had myself a little jam, enjoy it. Expect weekly sessions once I get the overhead GoPro setup sorted. This setup also has a little way to go to be fully realized, but after some years experimenting with various improvisation techniques its really heading in the right direction.
Well its been a busy day, almost gutted the entire studio to make way for a new minimalist lofty workshop. Ive been slowly converting my workflow from a central production and mixing suite to a separate sound design station and nearby live jamming setup. I’m one of those people that need to have a nice well organized space reflecting my mental workflow, plus there is never any room for friends to set up. Its going […]
So after sound designing more loops for the Ableton back end I just got my hands on the Storm app for my Analog Rytm. Loving the euclidean beat generator and everything randomizer. Just about to put some of my own samples into the on board memory and sit down with it for a while to learn more of the Scene and Performance features. Good times, love this thing. The video below is a jam with […]
So the setup is taking shape, chancing on some new quality audio assets gave me inspiration for an interesting format that lends itself to the APC 40 workflow I have been developing with Ableton Live. A thought also crossed my mind to start developing a sample CD in the form of construction kits and one shot sounds, it may possibly lead to some revenue from all this work since there isn’t a strong techno scene […]
As time draws on the setup is evolving (mostly on the digital side at the moment). A new set of loops have been added on the Ableton side, some of my own and some from a new sound designer I have discovered. Most are around 2 bars in length and serve my loopy dark techno very well. I have made a quick 20 minute recording of the looped sounds ill be using, with a bit […]
Not the best camera angle, but should give you an idea of a bit of my workflow with the Rytm and Samplr. Next week ill add the loops I have been working so hard on. This one is largely a Rytm jam.
