The Galaxy Electric - Buchla Cosmic Drone - Session 1 - Modular Drone Music

Published on Nov 21, 2019 The Galaxy Electric

"The Galaxy Electric - Buchla Cosmic Drone - Session 1 - 11/18/19 - Modular Drone Music

Relax and tune into our live weekly Drone Sessions. This inaugural session involves a drone featuring 4 Buchla style square wave oscillators starting in tune a couple octaves apart. As the oscillator frequencies drift apart by way of manual control beating ensues. Listening to droning oscillators can serve as an aid in a meditation practice as there is no sudden changes in sound. Just smooth drifts in pitch and the resulting beat frequencies. Drones can also serve as an ambient track to have on while doing tasks that require intense focus. The slow yet progressive nature of a drone performance can help one focus on tasks without distraction.

The electronic music instruments used in this performance of modular drone music are the Buchla Music Easel, and a small system involving a Buchla clone model 259 Programmable Complex Waveform Generator, Buchla 292h Dual Lowpass Gate, and 281h Dual Function Generator in the Buchla LEM Powered 3 Boat."

"Augustus Green of The Galaxy Electric uses a Buchla inspired modular synthesizer system to demonstrate making a randomly generated pseudo sequence using the 266r Source of Uncertainty Buchla clone, 280r Quad Envelope Generator Buchla clone, 1979 modular Dual Algorithmic Oscillator DAO, and 292c Quad Lopass Gate Buchla clone. The DAO is a dual version of the masterful Émilie Gillet's Mutable Instruments Braids. The new dual interface design and electrical engineering to assure Buchla system compatibility was performed by 1979 modular. The HARM and TOY* Algorithms are featured in this patch. The varied pitches as well as the animation of the DAO's parameters are being generated at random by the Source of Uncertainty. The 292c Quad Lopass Gate is used as a dual VCA in this instance and is being animated by the 280r Quad Envelope Generator. This is a modular synthesizer tutorial and demonstration that focuses on the Buchla modular synthesizer system."
