Recrochet




Crochet is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn

Recrochet is a process of creating sounds on a modular synth by interlocking loops of noise so that they sound a bit like early Tangerine Dream

Another Buchla self-player. Mainly using the 296 Spectral Processor and taking 4 different frequency outputs from it into 4 LPGs and then randomly panning the result with the 102 Stereo Locator

Feeling Waspish


Messing on the Modcan. In particular, I'm exploring the very interesting Cynthia Twin Wasp Filter. This is based on the EDP Wasp multi-mode filter, but it has two of them, controlled by one set of inputs and one output

Also in this patch is a simple drum machine setup using the sequencer trigger outputs

Theres also a tiny bit of reverb from the astonishing Roland R880 mainframe reverberation system

Electronic Music Sound


Got my new copy of Electronic Sound - I am featured on the CD that comes with it if you order it here. Yippee!

Piano Foxxy


Had a great session with John Foxx again last week. The album is coming on very nicely. Here is Foxxy in some down time

Miniature Moog


Check out these mini versions of Moog Modular modules. They look pretty interesting if you want to build a compact version of a classic Moog system without spending 100k and using up one whole wall of your studio. I have no idea what these sound like and how they feel to use, but going on the specs and the fact that they are made by a division of Club Of Th Knobs, who have been specialising in accurately cloning Moog modules for years, I guess the chances are they will be pretty good

I put together a system in Photoshop that fairly much matches my original Moog 3C, just for fun (although its missing the big matrix mixer). I don't intend to buy any Aion modules at the moment, I just wanted to see what a mini Moog modular 3C would look like, OK?

Wrangler Soup


A few weeks ago we (Wrangler) played as part of Subliminal Festival in Manchester. Our set was 80% new material - woo! Heres a small bowl of it:

Performant




Another side of the Formant Modular - this thing is crazy - like a drunk uncle at a wedding party
