"Just a bit of fun using the SK-30 to create an imaginary soundtrack to... a video game? I came up with some titles, but I’ll admit it was late at night when I did all of this, now my right eye is incredibly bloodshot.

Maybe it’s the novelty of the SK-30. Normally I write and write and write with a new piece of gear (I did this with the Moog Matriarch too), and soon enough it’ll wear off and I’ll move on - maybe that’s just part of being human, or maybe I will continue to find great value in the SK-30. Something I really do value here (and could possibly do with other gear, but don’t) is just how easy it is to write music with, all by itself. It just works, of course, my keyboard skills leave a lot to be desired (I mess up plenty here, unfortunately, as this would have been fun to put into an album).

These tracks ONLY USE the organ and the monosynth. I still find the organ to be a pretty fun little part of it, surprisingly. I don’t understand organs at all, or why there are tones at regular and fraction intervals, but they’re all cool in different ways.

Eventide Space and Strymon El Capistan used for FX."
