Track: Marooned (Yamaha EX5, Digitone, PEAK, Blackbox, Guitar, Zoom R24)

"I tried to create a #Triphop track in the style of Massive Attack. As seen in the video, this was done #DAWless on hardware #synthesizer: Digitone plays the drum pattern and the Novation PEAK and also provides the MIDI clock. EX5 is in it's 16 voice performance mode, song sequencer playing a chain of 4 patterns (intro, verse, break, silence), providing pads, sub bass, the harp sound and some sound effects. The pad sound is a pure saw wave routed through the additional audio outputs into my pedal board. I use the Strymon Big Sky's brightness setting for creating that sublime filter sweep effect. The 1010 Music Blackbox is synced to the Digitone, playing back the guitar and vocal track recorded previously. Music recorded, mixed and mastered on a Zoom R24, as can be seen in the video. As also seen in this video, absolutely no skill whatsoever is needed for playing this live, but the preperation for this took quite some hours. :-)

If you like this track, you can download this track on Bandcamp or on Spotify:

A trip hop track created on my hardware synths (Yamaha EX5, Digitone, PEAK) plus electric guitar, recorded, mixed and mastered on a Zoom R24

endless nights
and long summer days
watching the clouds fly
in the endless blue sky

year after year
day after day
time goes by slowly

leaves in the wind
mist in the trees
summer moved on

river runs slow
moving the shores
time goes by slowly

carried away
wave after wave
washed up on the sand

sun sinking slow
on the horizon
holding your hand

time goes by slowly
