Novation // Patricia Wolf - Performance

Published on Feb 24, 2020 NovationTV

"In this video, filmed at Holocene, Portland, electronic musician, synthesist and sound designer Patricia Wolf performs with SL MkIII at the centre of her setup.

Patricia’s music-making setup comprises several machines: a Novation Peak polysynth; a Boomstar 3003 semi-modular synth; a Make Noise 0-Coast modular synth; an Elektron Analog Rytm drum machine, and OTO BIM and BAM effects units. All her sound-generating devices are connected to a Novation 49 SL MkIII controller by a mixture of MIDI and CV connections. By using templates in the SL MkIII to control multiple parameters across all her devices, Patricia is able to focus her attention on one main control surface — the Novation SL MkIII — while maximising the technological potential of all her synths.

Novation // Patricia Wolf - Profile

"In this video, Patricia Wolf discusses how she takes a two-stage approach to sound design. “In one way, I focus on the technical aspects of it, especially when there’s new features on a synthesizer that I’m not so familiar with. So I’ll play around with that and really think about what it’s doing.” Then, once she’s familiar with her machines and their respective capabilities, she’ll free herself from thinking on a purely technical point of view and consider her machines as an ecosystem, playing in harmony. 'It’s nice to let go of that technicality and just think of it as a living, electric energy that you can morph and change and start feeling for its creative potential.'"

  1. A bit better than most, but still part and parcel with that genre of mechanical repetition that I have never recognized as music. Chopin made music. Duke Ellington made music. Keith Emerson made music. Machines do not make music.
