Here’s the second microtrack from a series of experiments featuring the Korg Monotribe and my SCI Pro-One. It would be remiss to leave out the use of the Memory Man on the Pro-One for some distorted dub-delay. This particular piece has odd times and flams happening that were a bit of an accident. It could of been caused by dropping a beat somewhere using the active step function on the Monotribe, but I was also synchronizing with the DAW, so my sync loop may have been misaligned. In any case I liked what I heard and let it form the basis of this study.
Here’s the first in a series of microtracks I’ll be sharing here on ACB that I produced with a Korg Monotribe synchronized in a variety of ways with my SCI Pro-One. The nice thing about the Monotribe is that it has sync in/out that works perfectly with the Pro-One gate in/out functionality. I wasn’t sure if this would work or not so my friend Lukas brought his over and we tested it before I committed to buying one. I was quite pleased to find out that it works both ways meaning I can either sync the Monotribe with the LFO on the Pro-One, or sync the Pro-One to the tempo on the Monotribe.
This is another piece from a stockpile of synthesizer tracks that I’ve been sitting on for a while. Locus 13.07b is a study in polyrhythmic arpeggiation produced using the Roland Super Jupiter MKS-80 and the Roland D-50.
This is one out of a collection of synthesizer tracks that I’ve been sitting on for a long time. Apart from the percussion, Libration (not to be confused with liberation) Dub was made entirely with the Casio CZ-1000
analog phase distortion synthesizer.
Recently I participated in a performance with a collective of musicians called Coloring Time. The show took place on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at the History Theatre in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota and was sponsored by McNally Smith School of Music. Performers include: Crescent Moon (Kill the Vultures), Kristoff Krane, Chastity Brown, Aby Wolf, Peter Pisano (Peterwolfcrier), Joe Horton (No Bird Sing), Michelle Kinney and Melissa Mathews (Mississippi Peace), Chris Thomson, Bobby Mullrennan (No Bird Sing), Casey O’Brien (Face Candy), John Keston (Ostracon, DKO), Graham O’Brien (Mississippi Peace, No Bird Sing), and many others. This video is from the last six minutes of the performance. Apparently there’s much more to come. If it’s as lovely as this segment I will share it here when it shows up. Enjoy!
