New Song (Cumulus 2 – The Bridge)

Part two in the tentatively named Cumulus series. Based entirely on the modular synth, with the exception of the kick drum. This track continues to explore the theme of sound textures started with the Cumulus 1, but this time with a higher tempo.

The track was recorded in 3 different layers, with no sequencing or MIDI. The clock came from Pamela ;-). The Morphing Terrarium was used as the primary sound source, except for some guest play from time to time by the Bubblesound VCOs. Only reverb was added as an effect while mixing the 3 layers. There are no other computer generated effects.

Of course, all 3 layers where recorded as 3 continues ‘live’ recordings, each track ‘over dubbing’ the previous ones.

Hope you like it!

Not really news…

Posts are rare these days, but rest assure there are a lot of things cooking in the Glitzerstrahl labs. The modular synth is taking up a lot of time, but most of it is pure explorations and learnings at this point. Not so much actual music being made.

I’m slowly working on the next Cumulus track, which I plan to pull in a more melodic direction, but I want to use it as an excuse to experiment with a workflow that utilizes the Maschine as well as Live in the setup. Therefor it’s taking longer than usual.

Keep tuning in, there’s lots more coming!

In the meantime, tell me what you are working on! Any modular / analog stuff happening?

New Song (Cumulus 1 – The Engine Room)

This is a track made entirely with my modular setup. There is no external sequencing or MIDI involved, but some effects like reverb and echo were added through Ableton during recording. Other effects, like the distortion you hear on some sounds, came from patched in guitar stomp boxes.

Each ‘layer’ was recorded separately with a XAOC Moskwa sequencer providing the clock.
