Electronic Voyager: Retracing Bob Moog’s Sonic Journey - OFFICIAL TRAILER

Published on Apr 30, 2019 Waveshaper Media

"Electronic Voyager is slated for release in 2020. Now in the final stages of post-production, the film is raising finishing funds via Indiegogo.

From Waveshaper Media, the Toronto-based production company behind the pivotal electronic music documentary I Dream Of Wires, seen widely on Netflix, comes Electronic Voyager. Electronic Voyager is a new feature-length documentary on electronic music pioneer Bob Moog – his story recounted through the eyes of his daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa. In Electronic Voyager, we follow Michelle on an emotional road trip journey across North America and Europe, retracing her father’s groundbreaking footsteps. Michelle’s voyage is an effort to reconcile the father she knew, with the world-famous icon. Michelle’s father is the late Dr. Robert Arthur Moog (1934 - 2005), inventor of the iconic Moog synthesizer. Moog’s archetypal synthesizers defined electronic music in popular culture, and revolutionized the sound of music across genres. The “Moog” brand became, and remains, the “Kleenex” of synthesizers, and a key part of that branding is Bob Moog himself; iconic photos of a young Bob, looking confident, determined, and surrounded by his own inventions, loom large in contemporary Moog Music marketing materials, and at Moogfest, one of North America’s biggest music festivals, dedicated to Bob’s legacy.

Growing up, Michelle had an inkling of her father’s fame, and of the importance of his innovative work, but had no idea of the depth and magnitude of his influence; he was, first and foremost, dad. When Bob passed away in 2005 after a brief fight with cancer, the curtains were pulled back on Michelle’s dad, and at the age of 37, Michelle was introduced to Bob Moog. Thousands of people came forward at that time with testimonies about how Bob’s instruments had inspired them, leaving their lives transformed. Discovering the monumental significance of her father’s life and accomplishments was the turning point for Michelle, and she’s gone on to dedicate her life’s work to preserving and celebrating Bob Moog’s legacy, as founder and Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation.

Electronic Voyager takes the shape of a road-trip journey, where the viewer is looking over Michelle’s shoulder as she travels to the places where Moog history happened, and meets the people whose lives were changed by Bob and his inventions, including legendary musicians like Rick Wakeman, Gary Numan, and Jean-Michel Jarre. Michelle hopes to uncover clues about who her father really was, and how his work not only impacted the world, but had consequences for her and her family. Every person that Michelle meets, who knew Bob, offers another piece of the puzzle that Michelle is driven to complete. For herself, and for the world, Michelle wants to reveal a full picture of who Bob Moog really was, the man behind the iconic Moog brand.

Electronic Voyager not only recounts the fascinating story of the most pivotal figure in electronic music’s history, but also sheds light on the personal and financial struggles endured by one of America’s true great innovators; it’s a universal story highlighting the difficult relationship between creativity/innovation and business/commerce."

::vtol:: last breath

::vtol:: last breath from ::vtol:: on Vimeo.

Recently I have been actively developing the concept of “passive instruments”. I understand passive instruments to be different multimedia objects that do not require management so much as co-existence with them based on relations born of a mutual “hybrid” symbiosis.

“Last breadth” is an example of such an instrument. The operating principle of the object is fairly simple – the exhaled air (its pressure and flow rate) activates the generative process, which depends on the exhalation parameters and is managed by the air movement in the organ. The object does not require any special game technique, although any change in the breathing (either premeditated or caused by physiological factors) is directly dependent on game dynamics and also on all the other parameters used to generate the sonic flow.

The idea of this project came to me during an emotional upheaval and concerns about my health that occurred all of a sudden. It is not as I had real grounds to worry about my life. On the other hand, however, the outcome is well-known and could happen at any moment. I don't feel any existential fear of death. On the contrary the “transition” is a wonderful topic for studies as part of art practice. I consider this object to constitute a deathbed mask – a ritual instrument of dying that can be played with when I no longer have any strength to use any other instrument. Until my last breath. And the final representation of the object was formed on this basis: sterile cyber-gothic, new rituals, the organs that support the functioning of the organ.

Kloob Blotet (Blofeld & Tetr4 joining forces)

Published on Apr 27, 2019 - Kloob -

"Testing some darky tones on these very cool synths.

The track consists of 4 sounds from Tetr4, whose audio outs are routed separately to the audio interface, and 4 soundscapes from Blofed; two background atmospheres and the deep ones played realtime. Its a nice sounding balance between analog and digital worlds.

Moreover, the Eventide Blackhole reverb plugin (very creative device) and Crystallizer (from Soundtoys) provide a great ambience to the track. It´s very interesting how good fx transform sounds… good discussion here :)

Well, this is not my usual stuff, but I really like the feeling I´ve managed. Maybe in a near future I’ll finish some tracks like this for a release.

By the way!!! A brand new Dark Ambient album will be released soon. Stay tuned!!!

Thanks for listening!
All the best!"

What is a "Touch Guitar" Synthesizer?

The "Touch Guitar" is a unique approach to guitar synthesis eliminating the need for pitch correction. (Pitch extraction is a method whereby an electrical sensor determines string vibration and uses this pitch reference to drive and external synthesizer). The "Touch Guitar" allows the musician to play faster than other guitar synthesizers. The fret board on a lead "Touch Guitar" contains ninety-six touch-sensitive frets. These frets do not physically move to actuate fret position. Because of the lack of any physical movement these switches should last for the owner's lifetime. A musical will no longer need strings or mechanical tuning pegs. The strumming section uses a spring loaded strum bar. the tension on this bar simulates the plucking motion of a regular guitar.

The "Touch Guitar" is engineered for total synthesis from a self-contained unit. It offers all the possibilities of a regular guitar...

"Yocto-808 Rhythm Composer, designed by German company Elicktronic as a faithful recreation of Roland’s legendary TR-808 drum machine! This unit is in beautiful cosmetic condition and VERY GOOD working condition. This unit features the Elschtroumph metal enclosure and looks fantastic. Shows just some general light wear and a bit of dust... A few notes regarding this unit: Firstly, to my ear, the Bass Drum Tone knob does not affect the bass drum tone in any way. Second, the Hand Clap sound needs to be properly tuned; to my ear it is very harsh as it is and does not sound anything like a hand clap. It does not sound like the Youtube demos of the Yocto. (The maracas sound fine.) Finally, the Cymbal sound also needs to be tuned, as it is very harsh to my ear; the tone knob does change the tone, though very slightly. Would I still use the hand clap and cymbal on a track? Yes. They are serviceable. Just not true to the original TR-808. With all that said, the unit otherwise preforms beautifully."

– 4 independent loop recorders with the option for individual clocking. They record triggering events, not audio.
– Clock generator with an array of dividers as a very powerful tool for rhythm synthesis.
– Wide range LFO (0.1 – 5000Hz) with variable waveform.
– Shaos – a unique pseudo-random generator based on shift registers with 4 independent outputs, sample and hold and other cool features.
– FX processor with CV control incl. CV control of the entire DSP’s sample rate.
