This is a video from LITTLESCALE youtube channel.
Here are some video to show the power of the Midibox SID , a synth based on the SID (Commodore64 MOS voice chip)…
This is an interesting E-musician TV interview.
As we can see the Cortini’s set up is based mainly on analog stuff and software based enviroments:
The Buchla is his main tool, the euro is the modular for “sperimental sounds” (he keeps the Havestman modules on their own…), while the Sunsyn is his polyphonic beast.
As he described , all the sound are “replicated” (as much as possible) on sw for live use.
The other intersting thing is that he somehow changed the way NIN approach to live music, becoming more synth based while before him it was completely sample-based.
Cortini left NIN , and prooduces his music as “Blindoldfreak”.
GlitchDS is an homebrew application for composing/performing glitch music on the Nintendo DS.
It’s based on samples , that are played by masks and that can be altered with modulations and distortion.
The result is really interesting and is like having a micro laptop for your glitch needs that can travel in your pocket!
I made this video demo during a composing session, so it can sound not so “groovy” or complitely logic in some parts, but can be interesting to show some of the power of this software and how it works.
I forgot to say that it’s sample based, but you can load your own samples with one shot sounds but even loops and then experimentation starts!
I’ve done this video to show the Yamaha VSS30 in the sample editing territory…
A simple plick made beating two pens together near the onboard mic can be transformed in a rhythm…
Something like the bouncing ball by Aphex Twin…
I’ve made this video to demostrate how the the yamaha VSS30 can mangle the internal waves.
Everything is done only with the VSS , no external efx and NO samples.
A great example of tweaking in IDM style!
