Late Night Noiz For Late Night Fiends
This piece was written after seeing the horrific murder of George Floyd. The piece is designed by the sound of an inhale and an exhale. This...representing the breath that George Floyd tried to acquire.

The entirety of the piece is eight minutes and forty-six seconds long.
The duration of his murder and fight to breathe.
Both of the audio and video slowly fade to black for the duration of the eight minutes and forty-six seconds.



- for more noiz:
Created during The Plague.

still fetch over $550 without any expansions & is featured
onboard in the new Roland Jupiter-X & Jupiter-Xm.

Simmons Digital Clap Trap w/ Original Box, Manual & Gated Snare & Wood Block Mod?

via this auction

This one was spotted and sent in via M Me.

Pic of the inside below.

"Simmons Digital Clap Trap
original boxed & manual & 3 eproms
(with “Gated Snare, wood block & surprise :-”)

Something that rarely comes up especially with the mod on this version. This is a genuine Simmons unit which was adapted to include a ZIF ("zero insertion-force") socket and a removable panel so the chips could be swapped without unscrewing the whole case. This one is loaded with a Gated Snare chip – sounds superb working on the fly!
If you're looking for interesting synth snare sounds and noise hits, look no further. This is a simple unit, allows you to balance between a gated snare and noise sound which is controlled/manipulated by an analogue circuit.. Pitch and decay adjust for each sound. Very nice sound and surprisingly useful for such a simple device. You can trigger it from an external trigger or audio input, manual trigger button or use the auto-trigger mode (with adjustable speed). The humanizer feature alters the pitch of the snare. To hear the humanizer, use manual trigger and play it very quickly.

fully functional and in nice condition !
original box and manual included, 220V."

The additive-synthesis function give you the ability to create your on waveforms by mixing the amplitudes of the 24 harmonics using the keyboard. 24 custom waves can be stored and used with either oscilator.

Self-Playing Synthi

Published on Jun 5, 2020 blwvideo

"I've gotten a little bit fascinated with creating note sequences on the Synthi. This patch uses the sync relationship between osc 1 and 2 and the trapezoid to create stepped pitches. The joystick transposes both vco's. This was a live take of the patch, with a second pass with the filter self-oscillating added for another layer."

Anciana SD032 by Tonylight of LepLoop Featuring the Arpopone+Multicassa+0coast

English translation below.

“L’estate scorsa in montagna ho registrato circa 90 brani live, a mo’ di improvvisazione jazz ma elettronica, diciamo, utilizzando due dei nostri strumenti lep: 3

Leploop Multicassa e un Arpopone, più qualche effetto. Mi sono volutamente limitato nel set up per rimanere più concentrato e creativo. Poi verso fine 2019 ho chiesto all'amica Philippa Nicole Barr di operare una selezione delle 90 tracce. Giornalista freelance australiane di Wire di base a Sidney che avevo conosciuto a Milano nel 2012 per un’articolo sulla scena musicale sperimentale milanese, Philippa mi sembrava la persona più adatta per aiutarmi in questa impossibile selezione, anche stimolato dalla sua lontananza da Milano.

Cosi Philippa ha selezionato 5\7 tracce io ne ho suggerite un'altro paio e alla fine ne abbiamo tenute 6.
Philippa mi ha suggerito di intitolare le tracce con qualche nome in italiano perchè all'estero sarebbero suonate piu' particolari, esotiche.

Cosi ho trovato i nomi di alcune erbe selvatiche commestibili che si raccolgono in Val Trompia, dove ho la casa e ho finalizzato le tracce. Anciana è il nome di un'erba selvatica commestibile in dialetto valtrumpino.
Poi Philippa ha chiesto ad un suo amico fonico australiano di fare il master, David Matthew, un produttore di musica elettronica che si fa chiamare anche B.I.N.T.

Poi ho chiesto all’amica Judy Rhum se le andava di pensare alla copertina. A Barnaba è piaciuto così tanto il tutto che, oltrea a farlo uscire per la sua etichetta Sangue Disken, ha confezionato pure un video per il il brano 'Farinel', tutto girato dalla finestra di casa di sua mamma, dove è bloccato dall’inizio del lockdown causato dal Covid-19.” (Tonylight, 2020)"


"Last summer in the mountains I recorded about 90 live songs, like jazz but electronic improvisation, let's say, using two of our lep instruments: 3

Leploop Multicassa and a Harpopone, plus some effects. I purposely limited myself in the set up to stay more focused and creative. Then in late 2019 I asked my friend Philippa Nicole Barr to make a selection of the 90 tracks. Australian freelance journalist from Sydney based Wire that I met in Milan in 2012 for an article on the Milanese experimental music scene, Philippa seemed to me the most suitable person to help me in this impossible selection, also stimulated by his distance from Milan.

So Philippa selected 5 \ 7 tracks, I suggested another pair and in the end we kept 6.
Philippa suggested that I title the tracks with some names in Italian because more particular, exotic sounds would be played abroad.

So I found the names of some edible wild herbs that are collected in Val Trompia, where I have the house and I have finalized the tracks. Anciana is the name of an edible wild herb in the Valtrumpino dialect.
Then Philippa asked her Australian sound friend to do the master, David Matthew, an electronic music producer who also calls himself B.I.N.T.

Then I asked my friend Judy Rhum if she wanted to think about the cover. Barnaba liked everything so much that, besides making it come out for his label Sangue Disken, he also made a video for the song 'Farinel', all shot from his mom's home window, where he is blocked from the beginning the lockdown caused by Covid-19.

EMS VCS3 The Putney Mk1 Semi-Modular Synthesizer w/ DK1 Keyboard SN 349

via this auction, also on Reverb

"PHYSICAL CONDITION: Excellent- Super clean all around. Some of the black lettering on the front is spotty but everything is legible. Some of the knobs have very minor scuffs that one could only see upon close inspection. A few minor dings on the wood cabinet but nothing that catches the eye. Overall, the physical condition of this synth is excellent.

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - Maintained by a consummate professional. This synth is 100% original with no modifications or repairs. This synth is in excellent working condition. Lights and meter in perfect working order. All knobs and switches feel good. Patch bay and pins all in good shape. Overall, the working condition of this synth is excellent.


Roland VP-330 MK I Vintage Synthesizer String Machine Vocoder

via this auction

"This baby has definitely been around the block, cosmetic condition is rather poor but it works as it should, mic pre is clean and vocoder and synth voices work well. These MK I editions do have a highish noise floor, and sounds warm and a bit grainy but that’s a synth from the late 70s for ya. I had all the small electrolytic capacitors replaced 3 years ago ($600) as recommended by my local tech so there’s a few decades more life left to them."
