Here’s a mix of the four previous practice phrases combined. The GMS preset that I programmed and used to create the phrases reined them all into the same general tonal center (basically harmonic minor). Imagine something like this with expertly played live drums and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what the Ostracon show sounded like last night.
Here’s another phrase from my practice session prior to Wednesday’s performance. This sound was made with a monophonic patch I programmed for leads. I routed the GMS to the MKS-80 and recorded a MIDI loop so that notes were purposefully overlapping. Next I let that record while adjusting various parameters on the synth.
Low-Gain shared this video with me as inspiration for our performance tonight at the Honey Lounge. Although it’s a few years old, I hadn’t encountered it before. I enjoyed it thoroughly (several times) and thought it would be good to share it here.
