New Colorado Modular Synth Society Compilation Album + Listening Party

Spreading the word. The Colorado Modular Synth Society has released a compilation album from some of their members over on Bandcamp.

Colorado Modular Synth Society Compilation Vol. 1

https://coloradomodularsynthsociety.bandcamp.com/

The Colorado Modular Synth Society’s mission is to connect people with information, inspiration, and a community of peers fascinated with Modular Synthesizers.

This compilation is the first snapshot of a growing scene of Colorado artists using Modular Synthesizers to compose and perform their music.

It is a showcase of the variety of timbres, textures, and sounds that are generated with Modular Synthesizers and the different styles that artists create using them.

Now let the control voltage take you on a musical journey.



Links to artists’ social media and websites are available on the individual track pages. Check them out and support the artists.

All proceeds from compilation album sales will directly go towards activities of the Colorado Modular Synth Society. Come join us!

Listening Party

They are having a listening party tonight.

We are so excited about our release but also excited to be a part of a vibrate modular synth community worldwide! With Bandcamp waiving their fees today, we decided to throw a listening party for a bunch of fellow modular synth artists that have music on Bandcamp. 

Tonight we are live streaming on YouTube and Twitch. We are joined by Johno from Dotwave Podcast and Modular on the Spot. We will play clips of various artists all evening including artists recommended by DivKid and other big names in the modular scene!

Mystery Circles is giving away some merch too!

We will be starting at 9 PM MDT.

Head over to the CMSS Youtube and CMSS Twitch to subscribe and set reminders!

(Modulate This) Music Monday

Music Monday: “Digital Graffiti” a Free Compilation Album by Denver/Boulder Producers

cover

I have something special for your Music Monday. It’s a new compilation album called Digital Graffiti Volume One featuring 7 tracks from 5 Denver/Boulder Artists including yours truly :^).  Kudos to Kent Barton (SEVEN7H WAVE) for all the time he put into this. I’m super honored that Kent included me.

One thing that all these artists together is that we all met through the Ableton Denver User Group (which is now going two-and-half years old). So, that said, don’t be a complete studio vampire and get out of your basement from time-to-time and find others on the same path. There is strength in numbers and sharing ideas.

There are a few other reasons I’m sharing this as my Music Monday. First it contains seriously cool tracks so get out your nice headphones. Second,  to give you a glimpse of the strong indie original electronic music movement in Denver. I feel very lucky to have settled here.  Third, to encourage you to band together with your local and interweb friends work on collaborations like this. It’s a great way to get more exposure for your music and get to know your fellow artists better. It also helps break down genre barriers and allows the promotion of electronic music in general.
