Inspired by Fluxmonkey's latest forum contribution, and emboldened by Muffwiggler's addition of the

tag, I decided to put a clip from last Sunday up:



Derek Holzer Live @ Die Remise, Berlin 1 Mar 2009

I was once told by my Butoh teacher, Joan Laage, that there is much more life in darkness than we take for granted. Turn over any stone in the garden and you will find a million living things twisting about, crawling over one another and skittering across the earth--all driven by the basest instinct to escape the light.

An improvised exploration of self-modulating synthesizer feedback. During the soundcheck, one of my Doepfer modules actually caught fire. The first thing which the audience encountered when descending into the small basement of Die Remise was the smell of burnt plastic.

Enjoy!

ps...pls let me know if this plays OK for you. On my laptop, the video has a pretty poor framerate, but I've been told on the Vimeo forums that it's my own problem somehow and that it should work for others.

My Powerbook G4 1.67GHz absolutely hates Vimeo. It's always a pretty poor experience. It could just be a question of pure horsepower & optimization.

That's my spec too.... sites like Vimeo are the reason the entire planet is slowly being turned into a waste pile. However, I really can't stand the quality/"community" around YouTube, so do I really have a right to complain? ;-)
fluxmonkey
Excellent! we must collaborate...

Yeah but the audio quality on vimeo is far superior.

I really like it but I guess some older machines can't deal.

yup - my old ibook 1.42Ghz is grinding to a halt on this too.
nice sounds though smile

it won't even start playing for me, and i'm on a dual 4GHZ with 4GB RAM and a broadband connection

LOVED the video! Low frame rate here, too, though.

I'd love a run-down of that rig, kind sir! Pictures if possible ;)

Self-made 8x8 Matrix mixer (pots too stiff to rock live, but just off-camera to my left, four channels used to cross-modulate 3xVCOs + VCF as fourth oscillator)

Not too many of my self-made modules here. I have some DIY delays, VCAs and lag processors laying around in another rack, as well as new 4U high format CGS modules in the works...

Best from Berlin!

Ditto, but shorter videos play just fine.

Great video regardless of it being choppy, audio comes through fine though.

That sucks that one of your modules fried. Hope its easily repairable or just not one of the more expensive ones.

There she is, the burned little witch. Wasn't too hard to replace, but kind of freaky to see smoke coming out of your rig any time, much less during the sound check....

I dig your stuff man!

Holy Scheiße, mein bruder! Is that black goo on the PCB from the IC or did someone put epoxy on it? What the hell caused that?

I believe the goo is from the socket... eek!
macumbista
That's the melted IC socket, mon frère... happens when acci-magically the polarity of the power to the chip gets reversed. How that happened, I still can't tell. The work of the devil, I suppose...

sounded even better than vimeo in person
