Playful: Buchla 208c Easel Command live west coast avant-garde synthesizer electronic music


video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"I am using the Buchla 208c music Easel Command along with the Make Noise 0-ctrl as a stand in for the 218 touch controller and wanted to continue exploring using a simple patch to create a large musical idea. This piece of music is called "Playful" and is for my son, who just turned 2. He has some medical issues, and we are so grateful that he is still with us. I didn't rehearse this beforehand and was just following the sound. I am still exploring using the pulsar into low pass gate 2 with the inverted envelope into low pass gate 1 to create different rhythms and have added pressure voltage to the complex oscillator modulation which is generating some nice harmonic side bands. I'm also using the envelope generator into the wave shaper, which is creating rhythms against itself with timbre. I am using the west coast technique of starting with something and spinning it out like a centrifuge. I'm processing the sound through a few eurorack modules that I will detail below. Hopefully this camera angle also helps you learn something!"
