Loop singing and drumming: Soma Enner live west coast avant-garde synthesizer electronic music

video upload by EthanJamesMusic

"Here is another performance video using the Soma Laboratory Enner instrument, designed by Sistor. My goal for this was to make kind of a tribal ambient sound using my voice into the piezo pickup and by layering non metered finger drumming with a looper pedal, and then morphing into a meditative bass and synth sound. This synth is very geared towards both drones and rhythms, as well as using the piezo pickup with the case, spring, and rubber bands to make added percussive sounds. I'm very excited to continue exploring and find even more sounds. I'm making use of the resonance of the case to layer in my voice and finger drums. Later I fade to a drone layer with rhythm from the click part of the synthesizer. This synth is patched using touch, and I love the idea of having an instrument that I can use my hands on to create sound and have a direct connection to the music. I am using the west coast technique of starting with something and spinning it out like a centrifuge. I'm processing the sound through an Eventide H9 pedal with some reverb and a Boss RC-5 looper pedal. Hopefully this camera angle also helps you learn something!"
