Quick Synth Improv From Scratch - Nord Lead & Zoom 1201

Published on Mar 4, 2020 ChrisLody

"So being the total masochist that I am I've taken on another daily music challenge for March over on Instagram linked to the Electronic Curiosity Collective that come with a set of suggestions you can try for each day. Today's suggestion was to improvise something completely from scratch. So I took it upon myself to create a sound and record something as quickly as possible. I've truncated the sound creation down as much as possible as it get a bit dull, but it took me about 10 minutes to go from a standing start, create a sound whilst coming up with ideas and put this together. Not bad :)

So obviously this is played on the Clavia Nord Lead with the Zoom 1201 providing reverb shown in the frame on a couple of blocks of wood, proper low tech solution. I've been experimenting for a long time trying to move away from playing diatonic notes and chords (notes within a fixed scale) as I increasingly find it boring to listen to and play, so this jam is me exploring just that. Ends up sounding a bit unpredictable this, a kind of untrustworthy vibe maybe."
