DreamsOfWires - 'Setsuko' (AJH Synth Mini Mod & Roland SH-1)
Published on Mar 12, 2017 DreamsOfWires
"Recorded live, no overdubs or post-production. I've been watching a few lesser-known films of Setsuko Hara just recently, one of my favourite actresses, so I thought I'd make something very loosely inspired by her.
Initial sound is the SH-1, all subsequent sounds are from the Mini Mod.
Sequenced using Genome on an iPad, selecting patterns in real-time, into an Expert Sleepers FH-1 to control the SH-1 and 3 Mini Mod VCO's, each on independent midi channels in order to play multiple notes simultaneously.
Recorded into two channels using AUM on the iPad via an iConnectivity AUDIO4+ (which also sends MIDI to the FH-1) with Virsyn's AudioReverb as an insert effect.
The video editing isn't as good as I'd have liked, but my ancient PC makes it a laborious and sloppy task.
Please don't ask me to explain the recording in any more detail than this, thank you.
Film scenes from 'Priest of Darkness' (河内山宗俊, 1936) and 'Temptation' (誘惑, 1948)."
