Ink and the materiality of painting are the true protagonists of this completely handmade videoclip, shooting the making of paintings in order to explore the creative process with a sophisticated visual language. The liquid Indian ink is lead by a path made of water on paper, to overcome the boundaries of contingency, while the content pays tribute to the previous research in animation and also to the origin of the audiovisual media.

The research explored by Eadward Muybridge with his Zoopraxography, and specifically his series Animal Locomotion, focused on the physiological motus, using examples such as birds in flight. At the end of the nineteenth century, Muybridge pioneered the techniques of analyzing the phases of motion, by pursuing research on physicality, which engages with the idea of repetition.

The movement of the wings during the flight of a bird deals with the same repetition that occurs within the human breath. Quoting the title of this track, when you ‘hold your breath’ it means that you interrupt the mechanic action of breathing, regardless if it’s crucial for life. It means that something might have a so powerful impact on your mind and your emotions that you can even suspend your biological functions to research an ecstatic suspension. Life keeps its mysterious meaning in this ‘something’: the miracle of the living beings and their movements, the lyrical purity of painting, the deeply sensitive allure of music, the universal power of beauty... A dark and deep landscape can be escaped by a flight, as much as a voice can rescue a listener from getting lost in a forest of sounds. Music and painting, that were historically the keys for the beauty in life, here work very similarly: according to ANGLE, both are analog and living, like a full-bodied material experience.

DreamsOfWires - AJH Mini Mod single VCO & filter

Published on Oct 16, 2016 DreamsOfWires

"This was the first recording I made with the AJH, just a simple, repeating sequence of notes (taken from a composition I'm working on), but I wanted to see how a single Mini Mod VCO sounded like with the filter and a bit of reverb. I'm gradually mixing the triangle, square and saw waves using the 3-channel mixer on the filter, also adjusting the filter etc. I found that both modules sounded really lovely.
I originally uploaded the audio to Soundcloud here:"

Minilogue Analog Kick Drum Synth

Published on Oct 16, 2016 RemixSample

"WARNING Watch your ears/speakers at 00:10. I was looking over the VOLCA Kick and then it hit me, I already own a analog kick generator, the KORG Minilogue! I hooked it up to the Line 6 Pocket Pod for added drive/distortion. I imagine that you can create really amazing kicks with some post processing. Btw, the patch 005 Ultra Low is a great starting point for kick drums."

Way Too Early - Ambient Moog Mother 32/Werkstatt, DSI/Oberheim OB6, Yamaha Montage, Octave Cat

Published on Oct 16, 2016 Earmonkey Music

"When you wake up way too early you get this.... I'm guessing if you asked people what synths are really nice for drones, the OB6 wouldn't be the first thing on the list. But with the X-Mod with VCO2 in LFO mode and the LFO working simultaneously, you can get some amazing evolving sounds. Add a Mother 32, a Werkstatt, and an Octave Cat run through the Roland RE-301, plus some funky digital stuff from the Yamaha Montage and you can be Ambient-ing all day long. The LFO from the Wertkstatt is modulating the LFO rate of the Mother. VCO2 of the OB6 is modulating Filter Freq and Norm to Band Pass filter for some melodic droning."
