Live hardware jam (a collaboration with a member of Elektron!)

Jay Hosking

"A live, semi-improvised performance, all on hardware, and inspired by a new collaboration. Erik Angman is a Technical Writer at Elektron, but more importantly he's a musician with nuanced taste and subtlety. Erik reached out to me about the possibility of making music together, and after hearing his work, I was happy to oblige. Here, I use some audio stems from Erik as a starting point on the Octatrack, "shred to pieces" (Erik's phrase) and then reimagined. Finally, I made some additional melodic and rhythmic content via the Octatrack, Digitone, and Monomachine. I'm very happy with the results, and here's hoping it's the beginning of a beautiful collaboration!

Elektron Octatrack MkII — Sample mangler, performance mixer, scene maker
Elektron Digitone + Cooper FX & Chase Bliss Generation Loss (into Octatrack) — Warbly melody
Elektron Digitone (into Monomachine) — Swell pad
Elektron Monomachine MkII (into Octatrack) — Drums, bass, high synth, harmony synth, and performance mixer

Written by Erik Angman and Jay Hosking. Performed and recorded live by Jay, with EQ, compression, and limiting on the master."
