Modular - A More Melodic Sputnik

Published on Feb 23, 2018 Mike Thomas

"A slight departure from the drone/noise/atonal pieces I've been creating with this setup. This piece has a combination of sequenced (but randomly-arranged) and generative melodies. Managed to eke out a little rhythmic cymbal thing, too.

I know my last few vids have been super low-tech video-wise, but sometimes I just want to capture something and move on. Hopefully these vids are still of interest :-)"

Ratchet and tweak with Arturia MiniBrute 2S by Olivier Briand no words

Published on Feb 23, 2018 Olivier Briand

"Ratchet and tweak with Arturia MiniBrute 2S by Olivier Briand is a compilation of 4 improvisations demonstrating the Ratchet Fonction of the gate track, that permits to repeat the step 1X (normal) 2x 3x or 4x, wich is an intersting features but needs a fast and short EG setting. By the way i did some insane tweaks because i can't stop doing that kind of nasty things...."

EMS Synthi-100 at Radio Belgrade 2018 - the "Emperor of Synths"

Published on Feb 23, 2018

"Visiting the Electronic Studio Radio Belgrade and talking with Svetlana Maras about the renovated incredible EMS Synthi-100 plus their plans for the future.

To describe the „7200 Patchpoints - Emperor of Modular Synths” can only be a humble attempt within 15 minutes (even out of 2hrs video content). But, besides some unprecise details due to this improvised conversation it should serve as a first insight for everyone who is seriously into Modular Synthesizers plus provide a short impression of what is much more exact in the scientific exploration apart from popular youtube. Notice also, that dedicated people worldwide are working on the EMS Synthi-100 conservation, restauration and keeping/bringing it back to vital life again for composers, researchers and artists. The knowledge and magic of this cultural icon won´t get lost for the upcoming generations of enthusiasts. Lets start in Belgrade, where Number 4 is back again!!"

Best Ambient Synth Shootout #47: Waldorf Blofeld - Song 3

Published on Feb 23, 2018 Christian's Sonic Spaces

"This is the third song with the Waldorf Blofeld. It's a table-top 25-voice polyphonic, 16-part multitimbral, digital synthesizer capable of wavetable synthesis and analogue modelling.

I used for the recording the following FX chain:
Waldorf Blofeld - Pigtronix Echolution 2 Deluxe - GFI System Specular Reverb 2 - Alesis 3630 - Elektron Analog Heat

The signal goes via a small Behringer mixer straight into the pc.

To create the complete song I recorded consecutively several stereo tracks. The final song was then mastered with just a bit EQ and compression on some tracks and some limiting on the master track.

Well, I decided to go back to the basics, but at the same time make something useful for the synth community and do a kind of competition (I like competitions;-). What's my best synth for ambient music :-)"

Album Heart Murmur by Kai Niggemann - Split Tape with Buchla 200e & Mini Buchla 200e DIY-Papercraft

Update: It looks like one of links below went to a previous release. It has been updated. Apologies for that!

Kai Niggemann wrote in to let us know he has a new release on Bandcamp, titled Heart Murmur. You can find the embed above. There is a 10" vinyl version that comes with a little Buchla 200e papercraft pictured below. For MATRIXSYNTH readers, Kai is also offering the papercraft for free, or rather just the cost of shipping. If you'd like one you can PayPal Kai 4 EUR at, or email him directly if you have any questions. The design of the papercraft card and the entire sleeve of the record was made by superdefault, a graphics design freelancer with many references in the international music scene from Berlin.

Details via BandCamp:

Deluxe package 10" vinyl of Kai Niggemann's vinyl debut. Recorded live in Berlin on a Buchla 200e Electric Music Box, meticulously mastered by Rashad Becker (Dubplates & Mastering) and pressed to vinyl in the highest possible quality, this album comes in a special package with an abundance of neat stickers and cards related to the artist and his instrument

Includes unlimited streaming of Heart Murmur via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Kai Niggemann’s solo debut, an all original album of outrageous poetically abstract music created live and without overdubs on a Buchla 200e Electric Music Box, one of the rarest and most sought after electronic music instruments.

Working on the platform since 2013, Kai Niggemann has become one of Germany’s leading artists who perform live with a Buchla 200e. His style is an electro-acoustic storytelling, a clubby dreamscape and a poetically-abstract kraut-infused energetic mix of new Elektronische Musik with contemporary club culture.

Nerds love the technology and clubbers love the throbbing drive of the basslines. It’s all improvised and recorded live in Berlin — yet it sounds meticulously crafted in a dark basement studio throughout the entire last winters.

Kai is a member of the 30-piece kraut-noise-jazz collective “The Dorf” and the electronics duo “The Last Books” (with Achim Zepezauer), performs and records with Mia Zabelka (Vienna) as “Redshift Orchestra”, cofounded the internet-computermusic “European Bridges Ensemble” (EBE, and the electroacoustic duo “Resonator”.
His most recent releases were the CD/vinyl “Lux” (feat. the noise drone artist N), “EviL/EvyL” and the cassette “Made in Österreich” with The Dorf (feat. Caspar Brötzmann & FM Einheit (Ex-Einstürzende Neubauten) or “Thinking Light” by Redshift Orchestra (duo with Mia Zabelka).

He performed concerts with Mia Zabelka (Wien), Yoshio Machida (JP), Trap & Zoid (BE), Stian Westerhus or Shahzad Ismaily (with The Dorf) among many others.

Besides the Buchla he often uses other sources for his sounds and musics, such as fieldrecordings, a noise choir, DIY-soundmakers and acoustic instruments. He is artistic co-director of the theater company “PARADEISER productions” (with director Ruth Schultz), performs solo and with partners, teaches courses in Sounddesign at the Academy for Fine Arts in Münster, Germany as well as music-electronic workshops (“soldering under supervision”) together with sound artist Stan Pete."
