    About :

    This video is a good sized highlight from Monday's show on Brixton Radio (which was my 59th!)

    There are two main sections:

    • First, a rather organic section where I'm using the contact microphone (at the top of the modular case) to manually trigger sounds and create a somewhat ambient soundscape.
    • Second - a much more sequenced section where I'm accompanying the modular with some synth strings on my trusty Prophet Rev 2. This section was actually quite a bit more melodic than I normally play and was even in a major key (so somewhat happy sounding).

    The Setup in Detail

    I have kept the modular set up almost as it was for my recent Electronic in the Tower gig I did - so using two cases (the left hand side of the wall). This is explains why the right hand side is hardly used in the video. I did however change the patch a little bit in the middle of Monday's show to add a lot of modulation to one of the voices that is generating chords. (Hence some dangling wires that aren't as neat as usual!)

    The whole design for this patch is that I can take either one or two cases to play live without a major reconfiguration. So for the tower gig I took 2 cases, but for Hive Fest this weekend I will just be taking the bottom left case. That one has all the most important stuff and should work standalone.

    We will see how well this plan works! Basically the things I will lose from the upper left case are:

    • 3 extra percussion generating modules

    • One of the chord generating voices

    • A noise source (which I've been using to generate ambient noise washes and rises and falls)

    • The ability to do all of the ambient/generative stuff at the start of this video.

    • 6 knobs allowing me to quickly dial up and down rhythms.

    • Some master buss functionality (master stereo filter and compressor)

    • That still leaves me though with:

    • 4 x percussion tracks (samples rather than the additional analog percussion that the top left case adds)

    • 4 x other sample tracks

    • 1 x chord generating voice

    • My 2 main voices.

    • Delay and Reverb effects.
      Which is plenty to make some electronic noise!

    I think there will still be some re-patching required today to prepare for the trip to Amsterdam but hopefully it's something that I can do in an hour rather than the whole day it would normally take me to create a new patch from scratch!

    New Enduro Release

    On Friday, the 3rd and final part of my Enduro release with fellow #hive music producer @primaudia came out. This version we call the chill edit - and it's the one that I focused the most on, taking some of my favourite parts from the radio edit, adding some synth arpeggios and creating a slower more ambient track. You can check it out here in all the usual places:

    We are really happy with our Enduro series - in the end creating 3 very different tracks with some common elements rather than simply making alternate mixes.

    Enjoy and I hope to see many of your at #hivefest!
