finally some music
i have finally broken the silence. the last few weeks i was busy making
sounds again and assembling them into pieces. actually, one of them is
already quite matured.
after having been busy with non-straight beats for quite some time. i
decided that it was also time to depart from the structure of 4/4 resp.
8/8 measures and made a piece which has a 6:8 timebase. that is basically
like a waltz, but more high-resolution. makes for very interesting grooves
once you get used to it.
also, i went into depth with a software synthesizer that features a
multi-routing matrix. back in the days, i once had an analogue synthesizer
(an oberheim matrix-12) i had borrowed from someone,
which also had one of those. i remember that i found it the most
fascinating thing back in those days ... even more so than modular synth
systems. well, these days you can do a lot with software, so there's no
need to lug around big pieces of gear ... even though they do have a
certain sex appeal. still, in the end it's about the music, not the tools.
one thing is for sure: the sounds you can make with multi-routing matrix
synths are still among the most sophisticated creations possible. i like
them a lot, because they are yet another example of sounds only possible
with electronic instruments. at least i could not think of any physical
instrument that could do the same thing ... maybe an organ, but i am not
ok, back to the studio
