What I’m aiming for would probably be music in the stylings of r beny and @stripes, with a little more emphasis on pop-structure and rhythm.
ann annie is probably my biggest inspiration right now, I’d like to try and emulate her style and wonderfully melodic composition while still maintaining my voice and staying true to myself, something I feel like I’ve been pretty good at doing since I started making electronic music in a trial version of FL Studio ten years ago.
I feel like you can hear “my sound” in everything I’ve made. I take a lot of pride in that feeling, even though I’m not necessarily technically proficient and I don’t have “a producer’s ear”. The latter being a big part of the reason I stopped working ITB. I always worry that someone will scoff at my lack of production chops. Maybe I read to much g*******z? Maybe I just like being able to turn knobs.
I want to build a 6u with four voices focused on live performances. I think I’ve realized that I’ll be using the Electribe 2 as my main sequencer for this duty because it’s so immediate and it works well in a live setting. Right now my live setup is the E2 and a Volca FM and I find it plenty useable for my current needs, but I’d like for my sound and process to evolve a bit, hence the move to modular. O_C and maybe something else down the line will add some random aspects to sequencing to keep the sound interesting.
I think the end goal is for me is to have somewhat repetitive themes and melodies that evolve and morph together using gates and timed LFOs to trigger effects and events. I’ve really enjoyed Clouds for this type of use and would like to add some other looping/direction-changing delays to push that aspect a little further, possibly a DLD or Magneto and maybe a Chronoblob. These will probably come later, as I still have a lot to wrap my head around with Clouds.
Okay I’ll take a step back from my verbose posts about my philosophy and goal as a modular synthesist. Sorry if I’m too long-winded, but I want to share my experience with this community and grow with it. I’ve been involved in a number of forums in my life. Lines seems to be a place that fosters artistic (and personal) discussion and growth in a way that makes me feel compelled to share my story.
TLDR: I really like ann annie and run-on sentences.
