Finally, edited some video from the Philly SYnth Meet on December 3.
En lieu of me actually having anything to post that I made (it’s been a month of drawing) I have these three videos I’ll put up instead. The first two I found about a year ago and were instrumental in my getting into modular synthesizers. One is Charles Cohen working his Buchla Music Easel. I saw Charles at a synth meet-up here in Phailadelphia about the same time and he’s just great. The second is The Subliminal Kid working a big Macbeth M5 with a Moog sequencer. I really like how the beat just kind of appears out of no where. The third movie here I just found today. It’s Keith Fullerton Whitman playing his modular. I have a couple of cds from KFW (Generator is my fave) and I just have no idea how he’s pulling the sounds and sequences out of this thing.
A short thing made for a little video.
It’s arranged in Ableton Live, the synth is Sonic Charge’s Synplant, and the numbers came from a Speak & Spell. “Four” and “Six” are from somewhere else, actually, but I don’t remember where.
Here’s the movie. Roscoe Riley is a book series that I illustrated. The final book, number seven, was just published a couple of weeks ago so I thought I’d commemorate the event.
