SYNTH-O-RAMA

Playing around with some varied synth voices on a new project. The recipe cards that come with the Arturia Microbrute-- those perforated orange sheets behind the keyboard in one of the images (you put them over the console, and they’re marked up to direct knob-twiddling for the creation of certain timbres)-- allow for templates I can tweak for further editing of unique voices. Pretty cool. I’ve also looked up some patches on mbpatches.com, and originally I was noting each URL I cribbed from for recall, but I wound up tweaking them all so much that eventually I didn’t even bother with that. Instead, the photo documentation of knob settings (plus post-it note to remind me of modulation actions) in the other image depicts the high-tech method I’m using in case I ever have to recall any of those. And of course, none of this is just an excuse to mess around with my synth. No siree Bob. Not a chance.

FIELD RECORDING: KNOCKIN' DOWN ICICLES

A recent audio document of winter destruction. The other night, while raking snow off the roof, I took the opportunity to knock off some of the gargantuan icicles flourishing there, with pleasingly cacophonous results. Edited from a somewhat longer session. No EQ or dynamics processing applied.
