This is an original composition, played live on the Eigenharp Alpha and looped for some parts.

It uses a single sound on my Moog Slim Phatty for all the sections of the song. This one of the challenges that I've been setting for myself. I want to create only a few very expressive and versatile sounds that I perfectly learn to play on the Eigenharp in all their nuances, as opposed an arsenal of thousands of sounds that are totally unconnected from myself.

Here I'm driving the Slim Phatty over Control Voltage, giving me an incredibly detailed connection to the expression of the sound. This is possible thanks to the Expert Sleepers ES-3 module which converts the data from the Eigenharp over digital ADAT audio to Direct Current.

Pressure on the keys is tied to volume, left-right movement to filter cutoff and up-down movement to pitch. I'm additionally controlling distortion through the breath pipe of the Alpha and delay feedback through its strip controller, both are AudioUnit effects from Rob Papen. The looping is done through Mobius and is controlled through a Rig Kontrol USB MIDI footpedal.

Unfinished and unpolished experiments with the Eigenharp Alpha, mostly to document my learning process and to share it with other Eigenharp players or people that are interested in its possibilities.

Don't expect anything well rehearsed, it's a raw outlet

Don't expect anything well rehearsed, it's a raw outlet of what I'm currently playing around with!
