Video My Set at Beat Cypher July 25, 2019 Performing New Song at 382 BPM.

This week I composed a new pieced called “Press 3” which starts of at 80 BPM and makes it all the way to 764 BPM 😯. He

Here is a video snippet where I’m clocking along at 382 BPM.

Thanks J.L. Kane for hosting and Mechant Metrique for shooting this on his phone.

Soon after I did a live studio recording of the piece and released as the first episode in Season 3 of the Sonic Encounters Podcasst.

I’m using Ableton Live 10.1 Suite, Push 2, Novation Launch Control XL, Suface Laptop 2, Outer Spaces reverb (Max for Live), and U-HE Zebra 2 and Hive.

Live 10 is Here – Watch Video Lessons

live-10

Ableton just released the final version of Live 10 today. I wanted to pass along a link to a set of videos they have to help you learn Live 10…

https://www.ableton.com/en/live/learn-live/.

The videos offer an overview of Live 10, Setup, Interface, Instruments & Effects, and Workflows.

In a related note, I’ve been running 10 in beta since September and the beta was so solid I gigged with it. I installed the final version today without issue and am up and running making music and sounds with Push 2.

I’ll leave you with a little video I made with the beta using the new Wavetable synth.

Thanks for reading,

Gig Notes: Denver Synth_Drone Collective November 26th, 2017, Textures Ambient Showcase

I’ll be performing as part of the Denver Synth_Drone Collective for the Sunday November 26th Textures Ambient Showcase at Mutiny Cafe in Denver – a perfect way to wrap up your Thanksgiving weekend :^). We’ll be the only act and will perform from 7-10pm. Below are my rig notes for this event for which I’ll be playing music plus performing visuals for the entire night. Here is the event link.

Modelling the Rig

For this show I’m doing visuals which means I’ll be using a Windows 10 laptop with a touchscreen. To keep the rig lean, I’ll use the laptop for my audio rig as well.  For visuals I’ll be using live camera input and video field recordings from my travels.

More on Denver Synth_Drone Collective

The Denver Synth_Drone collective is made up of artists bios+a+ic, Kuxaan Sum, Mark Mosher, Chris Sessions, Sean Patrick Faling, and Chris Frain.

The collective does improv limited by the following rules. Each member plays:

  1. One synth at a time
  2. Only a single note at a time

Of course once a note is triggered members can change the timber and pitch any way they like. It makes for super interesting drones, chords, textures, and movement.

To get a sense for this, check out a recording of our last performance on bandcamp https://symbolicinsight.bandcamp.com/album/13th-planet.
