Last night I performed as part of the Brisbane Synthesizer Orchestra. Something like a synth version of a Hot-Rod show there was an awesome audience turn-out for this festival of cables, knobs, synthesis. Of particular interest to me was the beautiful sounding Buchla Music Easel and the regal Eigenharp.
Mixed by Andrew Gibbs of the Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation i’m hoping we get to hear the audio soon as i’ve no clear idea what the mass sounded like, being focused mainly on my contribution to the greater mass. There was some video shot as well so that could well be worth looking out for.
My setup was comparably minimal though I felt like I had enough to deal with. Roland just recently released the System 100 plug-out, something I was hoping they would get to and it got some good use. While all the functionality is not available through the hardware interface there is enough to encourage serious patching and consideration for performative controls in much the same way the Nord Modular affords.
After the gig I could not sleep so I produced the following “comprovisation” – finishing off the mix this morning. All synth is System 100 with WebSDR running through the Scooper pitchshift / sampler and both running through the Demora delay which is being modulated by the Analog Ordnance Quad LFO. Loops were recorded on the Loopstation and mixed with the live processing.
