Acid Flute Knallgelb

I am so excited to finally have this new track published! It was a long journey, to get it finished.

Based on an initial jam with a Volca Drum, a Volca Bass, a Behringer TD-3 (which I call my „Acid Flute“) and two multieffect devices (Zoom MS-70 for Volca Bass and TC Electronic Skysurfer Reverb for TD-3), I was quite content with a rather minimal / reduced, strong acid character. Initially…

It seems, I cannot stay minimal. Once I worked on the parts in Ableton Live, I started enhancing. Some arpeggios were added by VST synths, all tracks got multiple effect additions.

Still not being really convinced, it took me quite a while to find the missing parts: One day I heard my daughter talk to her friend about some dresses – they were really excited about the „knallgelbe, neongelbe“ dress they talked about (that’s yellow, neon-yellow). Sampling this, I found the missing part for the track. The vocal sample got heavily processed, some parts stretched, some with a delay or gated, nearly everything added with Valhalla Shimmer reverb goodness and finally this added the missing spice to the track.

I am proud of this piece of music and hope, you like it, too!

You may find the track on many digital music platforms, if you like to give it a try. Perhaps, it makes you dancing, too! 😉

New track „See The Stars“ out now!

I recently bought this little drum machine beast, the Korg Volca Drum. I really enjoy jamming around with it, as it delivers deep sound creation functionality together with an easy comprehensible, Korg-Electribe-style sequencer.

So why not create a complete track from the 6-pattern device, I thought? Four patterns for the drums and percussions and two for constantly changing sounds based on the profound sound of the box should be a good basis for a minimal techno, house track.

Good idea, as I had a lot of fun jamming around, creating the flow and playing with the Volca Drum. Everything has been played live in one take, out-of-the-box, the only two additions are a guitar pedal that was used for additional delay effects and a little bit of multi-band compressor added in Ableton Live 10.

I hope you enjoy this track, too. 😉

You can find it on all major streaming and music download platforms and on my Bandcamp site. Here are some links:
