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!
The first ever Eyeo Festival was last June and the second iteration looks to be just as amazing as the last. Here’s a video of a presentation that I gave at Eyeo last year on using digital imagery to generate sound. I also have the HTML5 slideshow available (use the left and right arrow keys to navigate). A big thanks goes out to Dave Schroeder for creating Eyeo and sharing these videos.
