Sound Designer, Engineer, Composer & Performer

Archive for September, 2010


For the second time Todays Art Festival in the Hague has programmed the Structret performance. A project from the Art Science department of the KABK art academy in the city. I was invited to join in again because I was involved in the first performances in 2006.
Last time I took my analogue Doepfer suitcase synth. I however came up with another setup.
This time it’s digital synthesis vs. feedback loops.
The set up consists of a Clavia Micromodular synth played with a midifader box. Processed by a TC Electronic Nova Delay pedal. The feedback loop back into the Clavia synth goes via an Electro Harmonix Bass Big Muff. The Clavia patch consists of four individually controllable fm synthesis networks involving some ring modulation too. Pretty complex stuff (there are 12 sine oscillators & 4 ring modulators involved in total!). So I added some global paramaters to make nice ‘sound mass’ changes possible.
This soundfile is the first test with the final setup. I did a tiny bit of trimming at the end and I compressed it a bit.
Not my best playing I guess, but what the hell….. enjoy.
