Rucci Maximal Drone (x2), Strat, Moog DFAM (x2)

Published on Jun 2, 2019 Kris Lennox

"I was speaking to Michael a few weeks ago RE his instruments. I noticed his Maximal Drone a while back, but had picked up other gear in the meantime. I got round to ordering some of his items, which arrived yesterday. I'll possibly post some music with some of the other toys in the near future.

Warning to UK residents: I paid almost £60 just on customs charges (!). Postage alone added up to the price of a reverb pedal.

The Maximal sounds great. Quite lo-fi, but when ran through some outboard, it really comes to life. When I head it, to my ear it was begging for some guitar. Nothing complex or technical, just textural for setting the mood/feel.

The guitar is a '94 Strat ran through a Mesa TC-50. Great sound. Every note comes through clean; no distortion-blurring. I didn't film the guitar part, given it is just a few chords. Also opting to keep the video all-synth.

The DFAM section is quite the contrast to the sense of freedom of the first half.

Interesting meter in this piece (15/8).
