OMG SO SIQ!

I was so bummed I couldn’t make the the talk yesterday - fingers crossed there was some documentation!

Wild to see some of his Buchla equip. I saw some of the home made boxes at the Tudor conference at Weslyan last year, but had no idea about the extent of the Buchla stuff (those touch-plates < 3)


#1797

5 months into modular and just starting cello. Can’t wait to be playing these two together!


#1798

Had a lot of fun messing around with this rungler patch the other day - running all the outputs through my modular. Everything is clocked chaotically from the rungler:

Here’s some sound snippets mixed down to stereo for the curious:


#1799

I was fortunate to hang out with Tudor’s boxes while studying music at Wesleyan!


#1800

so sick!

If you’d be willing to share, super curious what’s going on with the dcblocker~ object in yr patch. Is that for bringing CV back into Max-land?


#1802

Thanks. I’m trying to decide what to do with them now. In a sense they are 8-channel non-durational compositions, but I do feel the need to do more with them. It’s just that every time I start to chop them up or edit, they lose the chaos that makes them special…

The dcblocker~ is just filtering out anything < 20hz, from the helpfile (part of JASCH objects):

I should probably use biquad~, but dcblocker~ is easier to remember than those coefficients!

After recording these I realised that Xaoc Drezno and Meng Qi Karp can produce lots too.

edit - looking at this again it only filters out very low frequencies (like < 0.5 hz) but also removes any offset, of course. Maybe I should be using cross~ before recording too…


#1803

ME too!! When were you ther?


#1804


#1805

Yeah, you know from experience, the strings don’t sound too good like that.


#1806

i have even heard of people attaching the viola neck to the body before playing it.
(macbook works fine tho, btw)


#1807

Where’s the face plate of this O_c from?


#1808

Nice setup. Just got a cello as a gift a few months ago, never played before and starting to try to both find out how to approach it, practice actually playing it and how to incorporate it with monome/arc and/or push2. Any sounds out there on what you’ve done with these together?


#1809

Well hello there new friend. I’ve been waiting so long to meet you, let’s make some noise, shall we?


#1810

Damn, I want mine :slight_smile:.
What was your order number ?

It looks awesome in copper…


#1811

61

I have solder a detached trim pot back on. The top module didn’t fit the frame perfectly, so I have a twist tie in lieu of a screw in one corner. But given the trials he’s had with his manufacturer, I’m not really surprised about these things. Just a bit of a delay before I get some sound out of it, stay tuned…

EDIT: Yay! that seems to have worked. It’s ultra-noisy, and I honestly can’t tell how much of that is by design or due to build quality, but that’s sort of what I expected.

EDIT 2: Ah, managed to dial a lot of the noise out. Starting to gel…


#1812

Awesome, looking forward to mine arriving … guess a while yet for it to appear in Europe
Let’s hear more ( perhaps time to revive the mescaline thread :))


#1813

What’s the name of this creature?


#1814

It’s the Folktek Mescaline. Really excited for mine.


#1815

Nothing yet! The way I’ll be approaching it is creating harmonic drones or simple melodies on the modular to improvise on top of. Eventually I want to get a piezo pickup, Walk and Morphagene to do some live looping/mangling. You could certainly do something along those lines with push!
