Deep Space Chordal Loneliness // #JAMUARY2020 Day 7

See the Synthuary label for more. Synthuary because these are the Jamuary synth videos. More below.

"For day 7 of Jamuary I delved into some deep space ambient and chordal loneliness. Channelling feelings on loneliness in ourselves or within the random chord shifting ... romantic, emotional discussions aside I really enjoyed creating and then sitting within it's sound world for some time letting it play."

"Is there anything like getting reacquainted with a synth you already own and falling deeply back in love? Loving the gear you have is the best cure for GAS, and right now I could sit and jam with the Minibrute 2S all day long!

This jam probably could have finished at a couple of different points, but honestly I was just having too much fun, so I hope you can indulge my self-indulgence! The "Filtered Ping Pong" delay on the MS-CDR70 certainly helped keep my attention though - it can be kinda subtle or get totally weird!

My next few jams are probably going to be focused on my favourite subject: turning synths into drum machines; so strap in and get ready for more beats where there should not be beats."

"I recorded my Jamuary2020 Day 07 synth improv video from Bittersweet Cafe in n Louisville, CO while enjoying a cappuccino ☺.

One again this is on an @Apple iPad Air with no external synths or audio processing.

#AUM is the host. I started off by improvising a loop with a bell pad sound using @sugarbytesofficial Factory synth performed with GeoShred Pro as a MIDI controller using @audio.damage Enzo looper.

I then used @audio.damage granular synth Quantum to make a textural bed underneath. The source is from an original field recording I made New Years Eve 2018 in a tube station in London. It's about 200 people singing the same song as they jam into a tight tunnel to access tracks below ground. I build a loop using @audio.damage Enzo. The @Eventideaudio Blackhole appears throughout the signal flow to give the piece some sense of space.

I then live programmed the drums and bass elements using @olympianoiseco Patterning 2 with the circular grid and with real-time recording with pads on the glass.

I finish off with a little distorted lead using GeoShred Pro with Factory synth.

A tech note - this was all battery-powered and also wireless as I used AirPod Pros to monitor the iPad and used AUM to record digitally record the session. GoPro Hero 7 was used for the video. It all fit into a small sling bag 😎."
