An inspiring video from Moog Music featuring Rusell E.L. Butler.
Side note: I'm truly humbled and honored to have Russell as a supporting member of the site, as well as Moog Music as a sponsor on the right.
"Today we debut 'Sonic Origins', a new video series that explores the origins of creativity and seeks to unearth the underlying elements of artistic identity. The series kicks off with Oakland-based producer Russell E.L. Butler.
Techno-rhythmic emancipator Russell E.L. Butler has a lot on their mind: while dealing with the loss of gear and more importantly some dear friends in the Oakland Ghost Ship fire, they are also releasing a new EP and celebrating their recent addition to Moogfest 2017. Here, Butler opens up about taking inspiration from their Bermudan roots, connecting with one's various identity consciousnesses, and, ultimately, music as self-liberation.
For the filming of the first Sonic Origins, Russell composed a hard hitting improvised modular session titled 'Sirens From a Distance' using four Mother-32s, a Make Noise 0-Coast and more.
