Joystick Performance

Post by TECHTAX » Wed Feb 15, 2017 7:18 pm

Lately, I've been playing around with different uses for my V2 Joystick from BL. on live stuff.
In this Performance it is controlling:

-Bi-Polar pitch quantization on 4 different Osc.
-Cutoff Frequency with random Woggle FM input on 4 Separate Filters

It makes for a pretty neat "One Knob to Rule Them All" type of performance tool.

Let me know if you have any questions, and I will try my best to explain in more detail?

Here's my first public appearance drenched in melancholy and based on my 7u case.
As you can see I'm still wiggling with caution :oops:

Any thoughts or feedback would be highly appreciated! :razz:

Thanks a lot for sharing. I found it an ethereal, floating journey, and I thought it was very evocative.

I think it'd be even more of an intense journey if it was half the length. My primary feedback would be to focus on concision. The different movements wouldn't wear out their welcome. I also wished for a few more really deep bass bits, and perhaps in future compositions more dynamism in density, tone, or energy might be worth exploring. (For some reason I found myself thinking of Eno's The Ship).

But as a set of moody, tonal soundscapes with clear melodic anchors, I dug it. :tu:

Thanks for great insights noisejockey!
My next appearance is in couple of weeks, will try to pay attention to the things you mentioned while preaparing for it!

My first live performance on my Eurorack system.
This was during the January session of Modular on the Spot in Los Angeles.

Did this last night. First solo synth show. I think it went fairly well. Just a 104hp skiff with some Turing sequencing and some sines.

Tight and rich for a first time out! A short set with lots of detail makes a strong impression. Yay for the BitBox!

Nice, Ryan! It's an extremely nice way to wake up with a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. I love that you constrained yourself to such a small setup for a 15-minute set; that's something we should all aspire to, and it'd be nice to see your ModularGrid layout for this set. Kind of wish the samples changed more over time, but the energy crescendo made sense as an organic evolution, so that was effective.

I liked the period footage, too - unusual but pastoral, I think it fit very well. A bit disappointed that Kepler wasn't part of the projection. That cat is epic. :lol:

Thanks, Nate. Yeah, I totally agree about the samples. My plan was to record four tracks on a looping cassette and mix them in real time but the looping cassette didn't want to take four tracks and I just ran out of time. This was a kinda last minute set.

This was the rig, minus the chord organ and plus a Bubblesound Diod filter:

Also had a Ditto Looper and EHX Cathedral reverb.

Sample & Fold Performance

Post by sammy123 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 10:35 am

Hi everyone. Here is a Quadraphonic performance by my trio Sample & Fold from Sunday. We performed live at MKESYNTH.02, which was/is a synth meetup in Milwaukee.

The recording has been remixed to stereo.

since I went 100% eurorack recently, I'd like to share two performances with you. An improvised techno set and an experimental / groove jam.


first the techno set:

and this is the experimental set:

Last Friday I had a gig here in Hamburg, Germany, at a bar called "Golem", they have a really tiny cinema downstairs, on the screen were video sequences by Roland Barkey, who also filmed the evening and made the video (thanks, Roland!).

[video][/video]

I have a handful of patches on the Buchla which serve as "starting points" for my improvisations, which I loop live on the Octatrack, so there are no pre-produced sequences or audio files – I literally fly by the seat of my pants (not being a native speaker, I hope I got the right colloquialism).

Hope you enjoy it nevertheless.

EDIT: updated broken video link

Here is from 13 July, 2017. Just modular and Eventide pedals plus Ableton Live for looper, recording, and giving mixing flexibility that I haven't found a hardware mixer that is capable of.

Live techno set from live stream

Post by Tubefund » Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:19 am

Someone let me use their studio so i was happy to play over a large PA system to really get those subs banging. Nothing fancy but had a lot of fun. Small pre patched modular. No pre sequences, did that on the fly and some just before recording. Sequenced with beat step pro and baby8 seq. volca beats and some samples played from radio music and disting Mk4 thru clouds, spring reverb and mixer FX.
First 18 minutes just wiggling and tuning osc and things.

I liked this very much! Lots of moments of violin-like articulations, like around 21 minutes, that are really quite poetic (and yes, you nailed the "flying by the seat of your pants" aphorism perfectly). Really liked the imagery projected during your show, too.

Lemme fix that video link for you (you must remove the S from "https"):
[video][/video]

I am always a sucker for sweeping ambient soundscapes with beats, so that was cool. Kind of wish you had your video a lot bigger in-frame; the TV is a nice gag at first, but it gets in the way of us seeing your performance in meaningful detail. We're all nerds here, we wanna see what you're doing! :bananaguitar:

Introducing Mutant Modular

Post by Damasene » Wed Sep 06, 2017 2:14 pm

Hey wigglers! Hexinverter Électronique have recently started a new video project, inviting electronic artists to have a jam with the full range of Mutant Drums, the rest of our modular system, and whatever else they fancy. We're calling it Mutant Modular.

You may have already caught the first instalment via our fb page or matrixsynth, a slice of moody, atmospheric techno from Josh Korody aka Nailbiter, filmed a few weeks ago in our Montreal studio. Anyway, lots more is in the pipeline!

Recorder and modular, from a concert in Oslo organized by Nymusikk. Quite experimental sound-based piece. I used mostly Clouds and a delay in different modes.
