harazard de uno

harazard de uno from abre ojos on Vimeo.

"an anniversary, a house guest and a pleasant reminder

fifth in an ongoing series of live sound & visual improvisations using a custom eurorack modular synthesizer and quartz composer on a macbook pro.

"you can access the video and an mp3 version from the site

if you have the bandwidth and are a vimeo user when you log in you can download the original video file from the bottom of the page for a better qual vid.

attached is the pic of the set up for this track, its my current live set up that i've been testing - modular & mic into xstation- xstation via usb into Ableton- some effects on them plus an instance of absynth all out via xstation into amp/pa/mixer then visuals are evolution xsession (wots with all the x's?) controlling quartz composer.

on another note i have just finished a dvd compiling the first four abre ojos a/v tracks, if any of your readers want a copy i'm happy to trade for their own music CD/DVD or it can be purchased for $15USD via paypal posted anywhere. it also includes the tracks as mp3's for transfer to their non video device... they can email via the website if they are interested"

  1. I see a ChaQuo in there and a Z5000?

  2. Can anyone tell me what that box is sitting on the laptop? What does it do? Thank you.

  3. It's an Evolution XSession midi controller.

  4. @ ghostdog- yup the ChaQuo is such a fun module so many options (so little time)

    @ drfresh - the Evolution Xsession is used for controlling the visuals in Quartz Composer - but it can be used to control anything that has midi capability
