itijik BLOOD in the STREET (Kendrick Lamar Acapella)

video upload by itijik

New from supporting member itijik.

"I fight the world, I fight you, I fight myself
I fight God, just tell me how many burdens left
I fight pain and hurricanes, today I wept
I'm tryna fight back tears, flood on my doorsteps
Life a livin' hell, puddles of blood in the streets
Shooters on top of the building, government aid ain't relief
Earthquake, the body drop, the ground breaks
The poor run with smoke lungs and Scarface
Who need a hero? (Hero)
You need a hero, look in the mirror, there go your hero
Who on the front lines at ground zero? (Hero)
My heart don't skip a beat, even when hard times bumps the needle
Mass destruction and mass corruption
The souls are sufferin' men
Clutchin' on deaf ears again, rapture is comin'
It's all prophecy and if I gotta be sacrificed for the greater good"

KORG MS20 MK1 (Type 35 Filter) w/ Original Case

Sherman Quad Mod Filterbank

via this auction

"The Quad Mod Filterbank

95 were produced. Mine is #80. Legend goes Herman Gillis created the QMF at the request of the Chemical Brothers. They own #1. They wanted a compact way to connect multiple fliterbanks in a compact space. This is a very special beast to say the least. Listen to the chemicals if you want to know what it can do.

The receipt above shows I am the original owner and that I purchased it directly from Sherman.

History of the unit
Essentially been in a climate controlled box for 20 years. It's a long, winding, sad story. I have finally let go of the dream of someday using it. It's time to go. It was out of a box for maybe 8 months with 20 hours of use tops. I put velco on the bottom because I didn't want it to even move. I left the velcro in case you want to do the same. I have considered it one of only a few prized possessions in my life. (Including my Latronic Notron which I'm also selling.)
It has always been safe and protected humidity free.

I believe it is the QMF with the least amount of use in existence. I have no way of proving that, but my situation is pretty unique. Maybe Herman has one stashed away unused.

There was never a manual. Just the included flyer above in the photos.
The internal power supply is universal. It takes an IEC cable which I LEFT OUT for weight and because if you're like me you have too many already.

The QMF was carefully packed in a large double walled cardboard box.

If you're in Canada, Japan or Europe I might consider an offer since this is so rare, but it needs to be one I don't want to refuse.

Good Luck

Runningonair - Ceres (Music Video)

video upload by Runningonair

New track from supporting member Runningonair.

"As the first track in a larger Sci-Fi music project, 'Ceres' focuses on the dwarf planet of the same name as a possible agricultural hub for the outer solar system. The soundscape is clearly influenced by early Vangelis, in particular the blade runner OST, this is intentional, as I want the full work to draw on cyberpunk, synthwave and soundtrack sources.

It took some time to find the right approach to completing the video, while I have some knowledge working with graphics and video, creating an entire Ceres based civilisation resplendent with vast solar panels arrays and purple LED illuminated green houses, was way beyond my skill level, not to say anything of the time involved. Instead, I have settled for video of Ceres’ current state, overlaying regimented crops colour corrected for the afore mentioned LEDs. The star fields, as usual, convey best the enormity of space, but also, in this case, the aspiration that at some point humans can achieve these remarkable feats. Whether the result will be for the benefit of many, we can at the least hope for a beautiful dystopia.
Two videos acted as the original inspiration for the Ceres project
1. @ParallaxNick
This deals mainly with the past and present of Ceres
2. @Isaac Arthur
and this deals with the future.

Monome Norns Fall, Dave Smith Evolver and Strymon BigSky

video upload by Luca Longobardi

"A Chromotherapy Session For Miniature People

I particularly love the kind of sound that came out of this setup. The Norns running the Fall script and the Dave Smith Evolver are playing in unison via midi.
The sound of the Norns is filtered by the Input Hack of the Evolver while its 4 LFOs create a movement of the 4 oscillators that generates a melodic looping line.
The Strymon Bigsky adds the right space for the warmth of the analog circuit to express itself at its best."
