1. the real yr3wk45...

    i had a brief naming regime change, it lasted only a week, so in some places (and indeed in the video itself), last week's LHC 2.1 was called yr3wk45...

    but really it's just an extension of yr3wk44, (LHC 2.2)

    this is the real yr3wk45, me on the mopho & Darren Smart on the drums... (with Tom Esteves on Pin-Heading & Phone camera)...

    the naming thing arose out of a change i've made in my working process...

    because i could split the LHC version into 2 halves i took advantage of it to "miss" a week of the longcat weekly improvisation...

    but i actually did the improvisation last week, i just left it until now to post it...

    just as i did an improvisation this week - but i won't be posting that one until next sunday...

    it means that i have more time to get the video/sound together, and also i hope to be a little more regular with the posting, before it went up either on the day i did it or the day after, or a couple of days after, and i do the improvisation whenever i want to in the week...

    anyway, much complex, needless talk... enjoy the video

  3. another outing for the longcat hadron collider, in honour of the large hadron collider in CERN.

    different drummer, but otherwise the same musicians as in september...

    me - Robbie Knight (longcat): Moog Opus 3, Mopho, Rhodes, Voice,

    David Lintern: K-station, Omnichord, Kaospad,

    Gareth Mitchell: Guitar, Voice,

    Tony Cannam: Voice,

    Kieran Doherty: Drums,

    we recorded 40 minutes of music, this is the last 15 minutes, chapter 2...

    this is the longcat weekly improvisation for last week, it took me a whole lot of time to get it ready, and hence it's thursday of this week before it goes up...

    my intention is to do an improvisation this week, but put up chapter 1 of the LHC2 as this week's improvisation, giving me a week's leeway in the future...

    anyway... enjoy x

  4. recorded on the last day i had that moog rogue, popped over to soundspecies henry the next day to get my moog opus 3 back, the end of the 1st exchange of the "north london moog exchange programme"...

    the mopho being the spring '09 must have item for the longcat weekly improvisation, played through my ROLAND KR33 keyboard, the piano being my beautiful GEM RP-X piano module running through my ROLAND A-30 gigging keyboard...

    synths effected by the arcdev industries Dubb box, a mac version thereof would make me so so happy...

    all that sound passing beneath the watchful eye of Blood Sunset Studio...

  5. with the ever wonderful moog opus 3, and the insanely addictive tone matrix from andre michelle...

    it's freely usable so long as you have the most recent flash update, it reminds me of early software drum machines like hammerhead...

    it seems he is creating a whole reason-ish music creation world online all run with flash, it's quite heavy on the CPU but very interesting x

    the moog is still missing it's string sound, but one of it's faults allows me to just have the filter with no sound underneath which you hear at the beginning... i love this synth x
