Minirig: Retta

Minirig: Retta from CatManDeux on Vimeo.

"Alessandro Cortini’s masterful Retta from Forse 3, loosely adapted from the Music Easel to the 0-Coast. This song reminds me of an ascension to Heaven. Dedicated to my late dad on Father’s Day.

The usual caveats, this is not a note perfect performance but served as a inspiration to learn my instrument better. I get carried away with the dynamics but it’s in keeping with the spirit that pervades Cortini’s works.

Tech notes:

Retta translates to 'straight line'.

Think of the top line of SQ1 buttons as the 5 pitches from the Easel sequencer along with an octave transpose, and the bottom line as the 3 preset voltage pads on the Easel keyboard. I “play” it manually to allow for the musical chaos of imperfections."
