Added some new features to my Monome sequencer for Beard-o-Bees. Live keyboard looping, new system for accents, live drum rolls.
Stoked to listen @jlmitch5! Wish we could’ve played a show at the last MOTS, but I will hopefully be down again for a future event!
Same! Saw some pictures and videos on instagram, looked like a great time. Ended up attending a wedding reception that evening, so couldn’t make it out
Gotcha! Yeah was a great night- let’s plan on meeting up at one in the future!
Thank you for posting this !
I really like the first track.
I’ve never seen strictly come dancing but ballrooms make me think of Hookland & M John Harrison short stories and ghosts…
featuring Norns and foulplay with samples from the fantastic Spitfire Union Chapel Organ library
I’ve got a show coming up this Thursday (11/4), so after exploring for a while, I settled on a patch and went to work. These three were basically all the same patch (with some variations of tempo, modulation, and muting):
If you happen to be in Taipei this week, come on out to Ivy Palace Thursday night (11/4) for some modular fun and DJs.
As always, thanks to the community here for the knowledge, laughs, and inspiration. I dip in and out, and it’s always a rewarding experience when I carve out a little time to see what’s happening on Lines
Lovely moods and tones, abstract synths combined well with field recordings. It would pair nicely with visuals, or in an installation. Enjoyable little EP
I realized that whenever I start a patch I always steer towards harsher, more dark-sounding drones. This feels like the same kind of thing as when I compose music for piano – why do I always write music in minor keys? Here’s me trying to do the opposite! Hooray!
Ugghhh. This is so good. I keep telling myself, “no, it’s fine having a five- or six-module setup. What am I really missing out on?” What I’m missing out on is this kind of complexity. This is just so sonically dense. Damn.
Here’s the first video from my new EP, Cells.
@zuliani thanks. The first vid had a bunch of modules going, but the second and third had like 5 or 6 going. I played a few shows out live, and learned that if I want to keep the case under 6U (plus a few externals), play for longer than 15 minutes, and still allow me to go on a modular journey and keep it engaging, I needed to build a bunch of small patches across multiple modules so I could transition/layer them and keep things moving. I also am not an analog purist, and some digital modules can do great things without needing 10 other modules. I thought the “Metal Strings” piece you’ve got up on YouTube is so great. Drone on, my friend
I was really enjoying the brittle, unstable lead that I stumbled across yesterday
Dramatic, cinematic, psychedelic sounding modular piece that I composed, recorded and lost all while trying to get something together for a live performance. I just couldn’t re-create this vibe after changing a few things, even though it was the same patch.
Finishing some songs for a release next year — made a few short videos using some stock footage.
Just released a new album, volume 1 of a 3 part series.
New live set up on my bandcamp for October:
Here’s a section of a musical project I finally got around to finishing and putting up, set to some footage I took on my phone from last night’s train ride from Manhattan back upstate.
(You can listen to / buy a digital copy of the album @ https://zuliani.bandcamp.com )
This is outstanding - thank you for sharing it! I’m looking forward to parts 2 and 3.
Thanks Bob, they’re coming in November and December
