Autumnal jam w/ Elektron Octatrack MkII, Deckard's Dream, Moog Sirin, Minitaur, Strymon Ola, Big Sky


Published on Sep 9, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by the changing of the seasons here. On this track, I make good use of its fantastic compressor, as well as the Octatrack's ability to incorporate external gear into the scenes and an overall mixed, cohesive sound.

While exploring the Octatrack further, a used Deckard's Dream went up for sale in my town for a very good price. It is no exaggeration to say the Deckard's Dream (or rather its inspiration, the Yamaha CS-80) has been the sound of my musical imagination for my entire life. When I brought it home and paired it with the Octatrack, this improvisation finally made sense and came together. And yes, I think the Deckard's sounds just as good as I'd hoped. I'll probably show it in some more "traditional" ways soon.

Elektron Octatrack MkII — Sequencer, samples (drums, weird loops), effects for external devices, master effects
Black Corporation Deckard's Dream + Strymon Ola + Strymon Big Sky — Pad
Moog Minitaur — Bass
Moog Sirin — Lead

Written over fragments of the last couple of weeks, performed live, and uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master.
