thanks!

im sure i'll make some more focused sounds and actual songs and what not with it later, but right now i'm having too much fun just patching and getting to know the modules.

this is all very exciting

i like sitting down for a while, hitting record and patching - and then taking what i learned from that patch session and incorporating that knowledge into a track. great fun!

ammo case of rainbow spaghetti = awesome

there's some cool sounds in more-cables that sound like a bagpipe or some kind of middle eastern instrument :sb:

here is another track!

http://soundcloud.com/donaldcrunk/behold


it is all tuned by hand, six passes, same modules as above. mainly drones, very simple patches, but i like how its dynamic.

blastin off some more sounds on this glorious saturday!

a pair of noisy patch experiments - http://soundcloud.com/donaldcrunk/loud-cables

a pleasant musical sound - http://soundcloud.com/donaldcrunk/a-workers-palace



being able to tune reliably only a half step is a big roadblock right now for music making with this device. but i will manage.

thank you sir! i admit to visiting your website many a time as well. are you still moving to chicago? i'm 3 hours south, but i'd love to get together and jam when/if you get settled in. it would be crazy.

I would definitely be down for that, and am definitely moving. Near the end of July. Thanks for visiting. I'm hoping to continue the operation in Chicago and hopefully expand it.

new track added today, this one is created with the casio RX-1 and korg monotron. used a lot of found sounds for this as well, and did some vocals (if you could call them that).

i've been slacking on releasing to my soundcloud lately, i'm in the midst of like 3 other musical projects at the moment that are all going to be released in their entirety. too much musics

here she is, play her loud!

oh thank you! that is high praise indeed. i am in fact not recording to tape, but i do spend a great deal of time trying to make it sound like i do!

i think it's a combination of the shortwave-radio noise + acoustic instruments + compressors that make it sound that way maybe. who knows. thanks for the listen!
