Performance and Production Notes

This is another piece inspired by the ground-breaking work of Louis and Bebe Barron on the film Forbidden Planet.  I use oscillators as the primary source for the piece.

Blofeld + Launchpad Pro + Octatrack
Blofeld + Launchpad Pro + Octatrack

The soundtrack is live improvisation using the Waldorf Blofled synthesizer with custom programs from INIT. The Novation Launchpad Pro grid performance instrument was used to perform notes with pressure on the Blofeld. In addition to live manipulation of the Blofeld through it’s hardware interface, I  live sampled and live looped the audio coming out of the Blofeld into an Electron Octatrack. From there I used the Octatrack’s chromatic mode, morphing with crossfader, and did live sequencing with trig automation. The Octatrack also provided additional effects.

I recorded a video of me performing this piece in the studio https://youtu.be/atDFO0YnnrI
