This video documents an improvised piece recorded on June 26, 2011 with David Andree, John Keston, and Jared Smyth. I was playing the Roland June-106, triggering the Roland MKS-80 with the GMS, and playing a few notes on the piano. David was playing acoustic guitar, cassette loops, reel-to-reel loops, percussion, and melodica. Jared was on a Monome running Grainslide, and live looping. Checkout Jared’s original post here.
This is one of many GMS driven MKS-80 clips I recorded into my Live set during the Ostracon performance last night. We have video from several cameras and a multitrack recording of the event, so keep an eye out for a live show video soon.
While practicing for our performance today I took some time off to experiment a little bit with the MKS-80. To create this sound I held down a chord and turned up the LFO routing to the VCF. The LFO was set to the random waveform with the frequency set to a little bit more than fifty percent.
