1. Press Cafe


    from stretta Added 8,671 68 7

    A demonstration of an application I wrote for the monome 256. Press Cafe creates different pitched rhythmic patterns based on which button is pressed. The patterns are represented by animating the LEDs. Each pattern can be edited directly on the monome 256. visit my blog at http://stretta.com to find out more, and download the max patch

      • Introducing the Moog Polyphonic Theremin


        from Moog Music Added 10.4K 55 4

        Introduced in 1928, the Theremin is one of the earliest and most widely known electronic instruments. Played artists that manipulate invisible energy fields around antennas which control the pitch and volume of the sound, Theremin music has distinguished hit records from such diverse artists as The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Clara Rockmore and Linkin Park. Today (April 1st), Moog Music designers carrying on the legacy of visionary founder, Robert Moog have announced the first major technical Theremin design advance in over 40 years. The PolyTheremin™ incorporates bleeding edge IsoDirectional Inductive Oscillator Technology, to isolate space around five individual pitch antennas thus enabling each to be played simultaneously (finger-by-finger) without interference from its companion antennas. This revolutionary concept breaks the long held belief that the Theremin could only be monophonic instrument. The PolyTheremin ships with Dorit Chrysler's instructional video "Playing the PolyTheremin is Even Easier Than Playing a Monophonic Theremin."

        • Will Gregory's Moog Ensemble


          from Andy McCreeth Added 14.6K 46 3

          The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble first performed together in 2005 as part of the Bath Festival, recreating some of the ‘Switched on Bach’ arrangements of Wendy Carlos in the Seventies. As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, the keyboard-player and composer Will Gregory is one of the UK’s leading advocates of using synthesizers and electronic instruments to create new sounds and reinvent old ones. The band perform a mixture of specially composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film scores. This was filmed in May 2014 at a rehearsal for their forthcoming shows.

          • Wetten dass..? (LAB BINÆR vs. FERCHAU) #5


            from LAB BINÆR Added 3,571 37 0

            What once started out in laboratories of scientists and nerds, with the goal to mimic the sound of instruments, soon become an indispensable asset to the music industry: The synthesizer. Therefore our fifth clip is dedicated to this ground breaking, technological invention. Using the appropriate emulators we composed an engineering hymn specifically for this clip. The visuals were created by reconstructing the original synthesizers (Minimoog, Roland-TR 808, Roland SH-101, Akai MPC2000XL) using the individual components of an iPhone 6 and a Nexus 5, which were in turn animated frame by frame. The sheet highlights display the actual operated controllers and buttons. Enjoy! Here you can find the previous clips an a making of: vimeo.com/album/2705406 Concept/Realization: WWW.LABBINAER.DE Mastering Sound: michaelfakesch.de --- Was einst in den Laboren der Wissenschaftler und Nerds, mit dem Ziel begann, den Klang von Instrumenten künstlich nachzuempfinden, wurde schnell zu einer unverzichtbaren Komponente in der Musikindustrie: Der Synthesizer. Daher widmen wir den fünften Clip dieser bahnbrechenden, technischen Erfindung. Unsere Engineering-Hymne haben wir unter Verwendung der entsprechenden Emulatoren eigens für diesen Clip komponiert. Für die Visuals haben wir die Original-Synthies (Minimoog, Roland TR-808, Roland SH-101, Akai MPC2000XL) aus den Einzelteilen eines iPhone 6 und eines Nexus 5 nachgelegt und Frame by Frame animiert. Die Folien-Highlights zeigen die tatsächlich betätigten Regler und Tasten an. Viel Spaß!

              • A Brief History of the Minimoog, 1970s


                from Moog Music Added 1,292 28 1

                Follow the life of the Minimoog Synthesizer from its inception through its prolific contributions to poplular music throughout the last 4 decades. In this first installment documenting the journey of the Minimoog synth through the 1970's, we explore the musicians and the people that were instrumental in bringing the instrument to prominence. We also sit with one of Moog Music's earliest engineers, Bill Hemsath, who recalls the process of the Minimoog's birth and sheds some light on what sets the Moog synthesizer apart from other analog synths.

                • Long Distance Poison - Signals To A Habitable Zone - Signal I


                  from Fin Records Added 1,343 19 0

                  Music - Long Distance Poison Video - Matthew Caron From "Signals To A Habitable Zone" LP/DVD/HZ Signal Sync Blueprint - available from Fin Records here: bit.ly/MucRlz After a few years of consistently dazzling live audiences in that most-jaded Earthbound portal of New York City, Long Distance Poison have released compositions via Thurston Moore’s label Ecstatic Peace and Steve Moore’s (Zombi, Maseroti) imprint VCO. Long Distance Poison have now created two pieces of true experimentation, laid out for Earth People on a vinyl slab: “Signals to a Habitable Zone”. In response to the work of controversial California astronomer Stephen Vogt, Long Distance Poison have utilized two distinct "signals," (songs for the stars) also set to visual accompaniment by director Matthew Caron and included on a separate DVD. Long Distance Poison are not in this simply for "good jams," nor as the result of heavy psychedelics intake, as a casual observer might imagine—quite the opposite, their creations are methodically structured and planned out, and at the root of each composition is a core concept, a distinct and pre-ordained reason to exist. The recording that you now hold in your hand, Signals to a Habitable Zone, represents the latest plateau in Long Distance Poison's voyage ever-upward, utilizing theoretical physics and astronomy (somehow a perfect fit with LDP's music) to quite literally reach for the stars, or more specifically a planet or planets, whereupon the life granted by a red dwarf star is possible. In the Summer of 2012, the musicians will be doing a live transmission, a performance before a live audience, as part of a sesquicentennial celebration of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, beaming the signals into space via ham radio. As a matter of usability, the two signals have been designed "universally," so they can be transmitted to any number of possible habitable zones—zones and planets that will be continually discovered due to the work of NASA's Kepler Mission spacecraft. So, what we have here, in addition to being an exercise in enjoyable listening in the realm of contemporary electronic music, also serves a purpose extending beyond mere entertainment into extra-terrestrial communication, arguably at a time when our planet is most in need of "outside" consultation. You can choose your level of enjoyment and/or participation with Signals...—play the record, play the record and the DVD, or play the record, the DVD, and also build and use the HZ Signal Sync (blueprints included in this package), thereby creating optimal settings for the transmission of these signal-songs to a habitable zone. So listen, enjoy, and know that somewhere out there, a kindred spirit in a neighboring galaxy may be listening, too.
