Video Original Ableton Wavetable Preset “Numbers” on Push 2

A quick post to share a video of a new original preset that’s in progress on the most amazing @Ableton #Wavetable#synth. This one is inspired by Kraftwerk and it called “Numbers” 😀. #SaturdayNightSoundDesign.

This was made entirely with Push 2 without using a mouse. As I’m using Push I incorporate the touch strip, velocity and pressure into this sound.

In a related note I’m slowly working my way towards a whole pack of Wavetable presets so subscribe to be notified of my progress along with other Modulate This! posts.

Tangerine Dream

Catch Up on Tangerine Dream

I was a HUGE fan of Tangerine Dream but I have to admit though that in the last 15 years or so I kind of lost track of what they were up to. Back in the day I played the vinyl albums for the Sorcerer soundtrack and Stratosphere until I about wore them out.

After Edgar Froese had passed in 2015 I figured the band had stopped. But I recently discovered the recent release of Quantum Gate / Quantum Key.

In 2015 German Electronica visionary and leader of the band Tangerine Dream, Edgar Froese, died, two years before the band celebrated its 50th anniversary. However, Froese had elected as his successor as leader of the band Thorsten Quaseschning who, along with Frose’s wife, Bianca Acquaye and other members Hoshiko Yamane and Ulrich Schnauss, have continued to work as the band. The result of this work is the album released as ‘Quantum Gate’ which was released in September 2017.

From <https://www.progradar.org/index.php/2018/04/30/review-tangerine-dream-quantum-gate-quantum-key-by-jez-denton/>

The band released a combined album in 2018 called Quantum Gate / Quantum Key in 2018 which is the best way to jump into all this https://open.spotify.com/album/4bM1e39z09Me0YdaoB0SWQ?si=VmZNE4m2SGOSzgQgZprcDg.

As I said, I’d lost track of the band, so I took a look at the lineup from the Wiki Page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangerine_Dream and saw that these members were not only selected successors but active members for quite a long time. The timeline stretches back to 1967 but I just captured from 1996 on and highlighted the current lineup throughout.

Click to Enlarge

I was so happy after my first listen of Quantum Gate / Quantum Key as these songs  reminded me of Tangerine Dream from the Sorcerer and Stratosphere days but also offered an updated sound and aesthetic but still clearly Tangerine Dream.

I was also to happy to find out they continue to play live as a three piece with interesting  visuals and lights that compliment the show but the focus is on the music. I was especially happy to see Hoshiko Yamane’s stripped-down Ableton Live rig with Push 2 with live violin (which you’ll see in videos below).

To help get you up to speed on the this incarnation of the band and how they choose songs from the back catalog check out this 2017 interview which also has an excerpt from a live performance.

When you are ready to take a deeper look take some time to drink in this 2 hour and 13 minute performance from Boiler Room x Dekmantel Festival 2018. They play some of my favs in this set such as “Betrayal” from the Sorcerer soundtrack, “Love on a Real Train” from Risky Business soundtrack and even “Stratosphere”!

This is 1 hour and 15 minutes set is from the same tour. The audio isn’t quite as good be you feel more immersed in the visuals.

Closing Thoughts

Tangerine Dream’s use of cinematic and narrative arcs – especially with Sorcerer soundtrack and Stratosphere – really inspired and informed my approach to instrumental music, especially for my studio album Fear Cannot Save Us. I discuss some of this during my interview on Art + Music + Technology Podcast interview with Darwin Grosse. So it’s so great to have rediscovered Tangerine Dream’s on-going musical journey and live act. I never thought I’d get to see Kraftwerk and I’ve seem them twice now. Maybe I’ll get to see Tangerine Dream someday as well.

I kind of have Quantum Gate / Quantum Key on repeat right now, but after I listen a few more times I look forward to hearing even more recent works soon.

Anyway, if you were a Tangerine Dream fan and lost track them as I did, I hope this post will help start to get caught up as well 😀.

(Mark Mosher Music News) (Modulate This) ableton live 10 Microsoft Surface Synth: AALTO Synth: Ableton Wavetable

New Microsoft Surface Announcements Including Surface Laptop, Pro, Neo, and Duo + My Journey with Surface for Music Production and Performance So Far

My Journey So Far with Surface

I’m a big fan of design of Microsoft Surface computers and have a Surface Laptop and Surface Pro 4 that I use for every day computing and for music applications like Ableton Live and virtual synthesizers. I literally have trouble using computers that don’t support touch displays and pen – haha.

Using a Surface Pro 4 and Pen to Manipulate Ableton Wavetable

Here are just a few videos where I took advantage of the pen in synthesis.

I also use my Surface Laptop for my live Ableton Performances like this one.

Of course while the devices are super light and the designs are quite fantastic as a live musician we can always use more oomph and connectivity. So I was excited to hear that Microsoft held an event today announcing the new Microsoft Surface line updates plus a look into products they will be releasing all the way out to the holiday season of 2020.

Official Product Videos

There are some great new updates coming to the line. Here are the official product videos.

Surface Laptop 3

Yah, removable hard drive!

Make a more powerful statement with new Surface Laptop 3. Sleek and light, it travels with ease and delivers improved speed and performance, all-day battery life, and outstanding graphics. Now in two sizes and two elegant keyboard finishes. Fuel your ideas with Surface Laptop 3.

At the office, at home or en route, new Surface Pro 7 adapts to the way you work with laptop-to-tablet versatility. And now, it delivers more power than ever, with a laptop-class Intel® Core™ processor, all-day battery, and improved graphics — plus more multitasking connections, including both USB-C™ and USB-A ports. More power from the Pro you know. Surface Pro 7.

Product page is here.

I didn’t find a product teaser for this but they cover it in the presentation summary below. Here is the product page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/surfacehttps://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/surface-pro-x/8vdnrp2m6hhc-pro-x.

Featuring blazing-fast LTE connectivity,3 our thinnest Surface stands out with industry-leading performance and a stunning, virtually edge-to-edge 13” touchscreen. The Pen stores securely and recharges in the luxurious, Alcantara® covered keyboard, complete with backlit keys and large multi-touch glass trackpad.

More on the Carbon Dioxide Ensemble

The Carbon Dioxide Ensemble is a collaboration with Thomas Lundy, Victoria Lundy, and Mark Mosher. We focus  on live improvisational performance of Musique concrète. In this unique act Mark uses the Elektron Octatrack dynamic performance sampler to live sample Thomas Lundy as he manipulates a Copper Heart and other objects with dry ice. Victoria Lundy accompanies on Theremin. The only audio source for Octatrack other than drum samples is the input from the contact mic on the Copper Heart. We then support the show with interactive visuals with live camera input.

Check out this recent performance behind-the-scenes performance video in collaboration with filmmaker Taylor Dunne.

Behind-The-Scenes Notes for My 2010-2015 Dark Sci-Fi Techno Show + 2013 Cover of Daft Punk”Derezzed” (Mile High Edit)

What follows is a rather detailed journal of my 2010-2015 Dark Sci-Fi Techno Show.

What Motivated Me to Write this Post…

While I was working on a playlist for the upcoming Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup 7th Birthday Party at Tilt Arcade I thought about Tron which made me think about a cover I’d done back in 2013 of the song “Derezzed” by Daft Punk.

My cover of “Derezzed” (Mile High Edit) was really an illustration of the show concept I designed and performed from 2010-2015. While that show was performed with all original music I also thought it would be fun to do a cover with the same show design – because – well I love Daft Punk. So let’s start with that…

Video “Derezzed” Cover (Mile High Edit)

I re-sequenced the song from scratch (no samples for the original were used). I performed the music and visuals live in a single take with no edits.

My rig at the time was Ableton Live, Percussa AudioCubes, Moog Etherwave Theremin Plus, and Tenori-On sending MIDI notes to an Ableton Rack with VSTs. I used the Machine to control the arrangement in Ableton on-the-fly and to live sequencing the parts I wasn’t playing live as well trigger clips in Live to automate changes in Resolume. The AudioCubes were used to trigger and control effects through gestures, as well as add 4 more dimensions of gestural control for effects for the Theremin. I used the Tenori-on to improvise a lead :^) More on all this below…

Background & Show Design

I created the show concept in support of my original alien invasion sci-fi theme concept albums Reboot, I Hear Your Signals, and – at the time – the forthcoming Fear Cannot Save Us.

Note: These albums are available on Spotify, Apple Music and most other outlets. The albums are free “name your price” on Bandcamp.

My design goal was to have the audience more easily relate to what I was doing with a complex and abstract rig by incorporating controllers that offered real-time visual feedback. This would allow them to correlate what I was doing with what they were hearing from the speakers. As the show evolved I amplified this further with projected visuals with real-time FX using only live camera input.

Visually the show design was a inspired in part by Tron, and John Carpenter’s “They Live”. I also used additional lighting to create shadows inspired by German expressionism films like “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari“.

Here is an example of a live performance. More videos from shows at the bottom of the post.

Live Album and Concert Video: “Live at Mountain Skies 2019”

In early May 2019 I flew out to attend and perform an original electronic music set at the Mountain Skies festival near Asheville, NC. It was a really fun weekend and I had a great time performing one track from 2014 album Fear Cannot Save Us, plus 4 brand new songs. Checkout a video of the entire set below plus a brand new live album from this same show.

Live Performance Video

My full performance is available on YouTube. It’s a 1080p video with live album audio mixed with live room audio so if you have a chance play it on a big screen with headphones or a home theater system :^)

You can jump to individual songs within this video using links below.

  • 00:00 – “Gonna Rise Up” (Octatrack MKII, Analog Four for leads)
  • 3:13 – “The Strange Case of the Dancing Automatons” (Intro is field recordings in Octatrack MKII, rest of the song is ALL Digitone)
  • 09:11 – “Disconnected” (Octatrack MKII, Analog Four MKI)
  • 14:20 “Techno Planet” (ALL Analog Four MKI :^) )
  • 19:29 “Mind the Gap” (Octatrack MKII)

Live Album

I’ve also released live audio recordings of the songs from this set as a “name your price” album on Bandcamp. These songs are presented as I performed them to 2-track during the show with no edits other than trimming and fading to break the continuous set up into this 5 song album with minimal gaps.

Performance Notes

The music was performed using only Elektron Analog Four MKI, Octatrack MKII, and Digitone with no external gear other than a CME Xkey Air 25 MIDI controller which I used with the Analog Four. Original field recordings made on location in Boulder; Denver; Bath & London England. I vocoded my voice in the studio using Ableton Live and Tone2 Electra2.

Visuals provided by Michael O’Bannon.

Photos from Event

Thanks!

A big thanks to Tony Gerber and Mike Metlay for organizing the event. Also a big thanks to all the volunteers at the festival, Radio Spiral, the venue White Horse at Black Mountain, and all the other artists for making it such a fantastic weekend.

Trippy Teaser Video for my Alien Invasion Song “Infected” + Thoughts on 2019 Visuals

Last summer I was experimenting with some interactive visuals with live camera input (as I do) to create an an alien overlay on my face. Was this inspired by John Carpenter’s They Live? Of course it was – haha.

I thought it worked really well for my song “Infected” from my album REBOOT and made a teaser video which I posted on YouTube and Instagram.

“Infected” is very trippy track where an infected human begins to sense they are merging into another consciousness. Available on Spotify, Apple Music, and beyond…

Alien Invasion Series

For those new to my music, I have three mostly beat-driven cinematic electronic music albums. REBOOT tells the invasion tale from the human point of view. I Hear Your Signals is the same story from alien point of view with inverted emotional curves. Fear Cannot Save Us is the third album, released in 2014, tells the story of the transformation of a human to an alien hybrid being. In 2019 I released the single “Disconnected” which is relate to this story.

Alien Invasion Concept Albums

Visit my Music to listen to all these works.

Thoughts on Visuals for My New 2019 Performances

Phase 1 – Focus on Music and Collaborate with Others

I’m preparing a new show for 2019 to perform many new songs I’ve composed (like “Disconnected”) and to bring back some songs from these previous albums that I’ve never played live. See my home page for events info.

For earlier shows with this set of songs I’m just going to focus on the music and collaborate with visuals artists where possible.

For example, My first performance of this set will be at the Mountain Skies festival http://spaceformusic.net/mountainskies/ at White Horse, Black Mountain just outside of Asheville.

For this festival I’ve asked the amazing Michael O’Bannon to do my visuals. Michael had done some of my visuals in the past at Electro-Music NY I’m really excited to collaborate with him again. You can see a photo and video of a past performance where he provided visuals below.

Phase 2 – Incorporate New Visuals & Still Collaborate with Others When Possible

After I’m satisfied that I have a solid set on the music side, I’ll circle back and start working on original visuals. I have many new ideas on the look feel and technology behind this which I’ll blog about here in the future.

That being said I love collaborating so I look forward to also doing some shows with other visualist even after I have my own companion visuals.

My Conversation with AfroDJMac on The Music Production Podcast #99

I had a great conversation with Brian Funk (aka AfroDJMac) for episode #99 of his Music Production Podcast. You can listen on iTunes or Stitcher or Google Play  or on YouTube (which also includes video footage). There are lots of detailed show notes and links from the conversation on the episode landing page

Mark and I had an excellent conversation about his work as a synthesist, composer, and live performer. We discussed his musical workflows and use of visuals in his performances. Mark also deconstructs and takes us behind the creative process of his newest single “Disconnected.” This episode is loaded with both practical and philosophical wisdom from Mark’s diverse and extensive experience as an artist.

I also discuss the local scene such as Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup, Beat Cypher, and my work with (no)poem, the Carbon Dioxide Ensemble, A.I. Winter and more. Again, links to all that in the detailed show notes and links from the conversation on the episode landing page

Also, my cat also video bombed the conversation at 35m27s. Brian was kind enough to render an excerpt so I could crate this short clip :^)

Here is the video for the full of the conversation.

Thanks again to Brian for inviting me!
