Door #24: Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht (Silent Night, Holy Night) - Synthmas '21

video upload by Synthfluencer

"Ho-Ho-Ho! This is Synthmas '21, the virtual calendar presenting a Christmas carol played by synthesizers - every day from 1st to 24th of December.

The song:
Maybe the best world's known Christmas carol, this song premiered in 1818 in Salzburg/Austria on the 24th. Unesco made it into intangible cultural heritage in 2011.

The gear:
I wanted to add something special to the last performance of my Synthmas calendar. What else could I choose than the Moog Claravox Centennial theremin. I was in doubt if I really should do a performance; we got that instrument 3 weeks ago and I could'nt really practice since then. So, I'm absolutely far away from being able to play the theremin in a decent manner. But so what, please don't be hard on me judging my very first steps with this tricky to play instrument.

In the second part as a littel redemption, the Yamaha CS-5 and Kawai S100F take over the lead voice. The Japanese duo is routed through the MODX fattening the sound with some bread & butter effects. Also this time I got the Kawai in tune, in a recent video the synth's tuning drifted away beyond measure. Instead I lost focus on the levels when I recorded the track. Sorry for the distorted pieces.

I wish all of you a peaceful Christmas time and I hope you enjoyed my cheesy little Synthmas calendar '21
