"🌐 ✨ 𝗕𝗢𝗥𝗟𝗔𝗡𝗗𝗢 𝗟𝗢𝗢𝗠 🧙‍♂️ 𝗶𝘀 𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸! Three years after it’s initial release, I made a music video for this track, containing the final album audio master. ℹ️ ❯❯❯

This video was recorded 2021-JAN-23 and 2021-JAN-27. I fed the MIDI data (or what was left of it) of my 2018 track BORLANDO LOOM into Cubase Lite - a free version of Cubase 1.0.

Cubase Lite (running on the Atari 1040STE) sends the MIDI data to three Roland JV-2080 synthesizer modules in stack mode. Obviously one JV-2080 would be enough to play back this track. But since I currently got three of those things in the studio, I thought more blinking lights and more screens look cooler in a video.

The JV units then send the MIDI into an Akai S1000, which again is only in the video because the MIDI monitor modes on that thing look interesting. The S1000 sends the MIDI to my old MacBook running Snoize MIDI Monitor, which is displayed on the EIZO CRT screen.

The Amiga 1081 CRT monitor shows either a VHS version of the original 2018 Borlando Loom Blender animation or NesFX (the MIDI visualizer on the Wayfar MidiNES). Audio in the video is not live, but from the album master.

BORLANDO LOOM is a cyberpunk ambient soundscape recorded between 2018-APR-12 and 2018-APR-14, using a Roland JV-2080 synthesizer module. Mastered in 2019 and released in it’s final form on 02/02/2020 as part of Cyberspace Database 1.0.

Cyberspace Database is the result of a 5 years long exploration of Cyberpunk Ambient themes. A journey through the timbres of classic digital and analog synthesizers and samplers with focus on defining the pillars of the SemiconductorWave genre.

Cyberspace Database is available as big box physical release and 24 bit download on Bandcamp as well as on most streaming services."
