Arp Fields - ARP 2500 live in concert

Pablo Garreton

"Arp Fields, for ARP 2500 synthesizer.

The composition was performed live with an 8.1 surround system at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Cologne with the support of the Studio for Electronic Music.

All the sounds are generated live with the ARP 2500, the Doepfer modular is used as a mixer and for some LFOs. There is also an Expert Sleepers audio interface to send CV triggers to sync the spatialisation and some LFOs. All the pitches are manually adjusted with the controls of the ARP synthesizer. This modular system has a total of 12 oscillators. The synthesizer has not ever been restored, hence some parts where not working 100%.

All the sounds were spatialized with algorithms and LFOs in live with a custom Max/msp for the 8.1 surround system, controlled with a midi controller.

Composition, programing and live performance, Pablo Garretón
Sound recording, Simon Spillner
Video recording, Lucia Kilger and Helena Cánovas

Impro no. 572 - Arp 2500, EMS Synthi & Doepfer A100

"I found this video from when I was preparing and exploring for my concert with the Arp 2500 at the Studio for electronic music of the HfMT In Cologne. I’m am using ableton and M4L for synchro, custom LFOs and some mixing. After a while I decided I should do a piece only with the Arp 2500 sounds, as you can can see in my feed, I have a video of a live concert with this. Improvising in the studio is relatively easy compared to play in a live concert with this incredible machine, that has never been properly restored. The sound and the energy is still there anyway.

part I 0:00
part II 4:35"
