gimme some 300 series jams

Post by dogoftears » Mon Apr 16, 2012 8:42 pm

I don't own a Wiard 300 but i've always wanted to. Perhaps one day I will.
I would love to hear audio and/or video of some 300 series jams or demos. There is a lack of them on youtube and even in this subforum.

I'm sure you guys make recordings with this stuff, can I pretty please listenz?? I used a system in person once (Bryan Carrigan's) and it was one of my favorite things ever...

Perfect timing on this thread. I get my first two modules this week! A waveform city and a dual borg! Ive dreamed of a 300 system for so long. My ultimate plan (itll take awhile) will be 8 300 series and 2 rows of euro wiard/malekko.

Thanks. I love it and it's my main modular despite the fact that I have choices here. The Wiard is amazing.

Jez Creek AKA Modulator ESP and myself jamming to Vertov's "Man with a Movie Camera" last month. All of the sequencer bits were done on the 300-series box0r. Wiardists may recognise the wogglebug noise at the beginning as well.

Wow Norman! That is awesome. Thank you this is exactly what i meant with my OP. wonderful sounds and a cool video. what other gear is being used? the Wiard looks beautiful there on your right.

If I may make one criticism: MWaMC is one of my favorite films and i think your performance renders it as background imagery, rather then focusing on the film itself. I could go a step further and say that an MWaMC soundtrack "should" be more percussive/rhythmic or less melodramatic, but whatever. I am not criticizing the quality of yr performance/music, more like the juxtaposition of the music with the film. Did you play for the entirety of the film? Is it improvised, structured, both?

Also whoever the projectionist is it looks like they used the wrong sized gate so the perfs on the print are showing!

I'm just completing another virtually all Wiard track.

The ones already up are;

Clockwork UFO
Through the Gates
This house is like a Ship
I thought I had lost my Friend

They are generally more on the experimental side(ish). The new one is more on the melodic side.

All are at Soundclick (see below)

oh and these are for two seperate projects.

it's a pity I've yet to finish the latest Wiard track because that shows the capabilities within a more conventional melodic structure. Here's one of the sequences within it just on it's own.

http://soundcloud.com/chamomile-shark/la-belle-sequence

In the meantime two more experiemental things, both are just Wiard plus a couple of other modules

Permutations - it's a single "voice" - ie one FM'd oscillator to LPG to VCA - with the pitch, envelope shape being modulated.

http://soundcloud.com/chamomile-shark/permutations

Meadow. Several runs of different grasshopper, mosquitos, bee and bird sounds. Needs remixing as there are too many mosquitos

Well...there's a bit of a backstory - I had originally compiled a set of berkeley routines & tempo mapped the sequencer parts to them but when I got to Jez' place the night before the gig the DVD was fucked so we had to find something quickly, hence "MWaMC". Although I like that one, if I were to play to a silent (have accompanied "Faust" and "Hotel Imperial" before, the latter very successful) and had to pick one I would have chosen "Beggars of Life" or "The Woman Disputed", and if I'd known we were doing MWaMC, I would have programmed sequences to match the action, probably more percussive like you said. so yeah, it was a bit backdropy really, though not from choice.

I used a Korg Lambda and an Alesis Ion, Jez had a Blofeld, and an Akai....something, I can't remember the model number. I also used my Blacet modular for a later sequence. a 2-modular gig! Decadent.

if you feel like engaging in some web archeology there are still quite a few soundfiles of 300-series provenance here:

The yahoo group rules are still in force but they're pretty toothless by current standards.

happy hunting

Yes, I thought that too.

Unfortunately after I had taken the patches apart.

But no matter, it was supposed to be a naturalistic piece
