I used some time this weekend, to dive into the soundscapes of my machines. As the Hardware-Jams group challenge was to create a track inspired by „food“ in any of it’s flavours; be it great moments with family and friends around a large table or munching crackers on the sofa.
As life’s a bit hard, lately, I chose one of my favourite sweets „Salted Caramel“ and jammed to it.
Currently I am working on a track called „Body Control“. Initially, I planned to create some dark techno style, minimal music with fierce acidy arpeggios. Well, the outcome was quite different, again, the patterns morphed to become a techno house track with some trancy elements. Ok, accepted, that’s nice, too.
In this jam, I played the different patterns and transitions live on my Electribe 2s as well as on the Korg Volca Bass.
In my latest post, I posted a video of a melo-technoid-wave jam I recently played. As I am quite proud of the melodic progression and the sound design of the track and of the transitions played in live, I decided to release this exact take.
The song was written and performed live solely on my Korg electribe 2s, using some samples I created with elf-audio’s brilliant Koala Sampler app. It was recorded live as a one-take in Ableton Live 10 via a Zoom R16 in audio-interface-mode. In Ableton, some EQing and compression was applied for final mastering, no effects, no cuts, no additional programming.
You may find the track on all major streaming platforms, find some links below.
