Modular Synthesizer Ensemble - Ernst Krenek Forum 2019

Published on Feb 25, 2019 Modular Synthesizer Ensemble

Buchla 100 & eurorack system workshops.

"The Modular Synthesizer Ensemble consists of a fixed setup of 12 Modular Synthesizers and a repertoire of compositions written particularly for the ensemble.

The ensemble members are changing from project to project and will be introducing and guided by Gammon to present the musical outcome live as an ensemble. Furthermore the project offers the possibility to relate on the local sociocultural conditions and develop a individual format. The process of sound generation with the analog Modular Synthesizer can be experienced and created by by the participants themselves. Proceeding from the individual sound material we will experiment, invent, try out, improvise, interpret and compose. A simultaneous inventing and performing process of electronic music is emerging, with the aim to interpret compositions and present them live as an ensemble.
The Modular Synthesizer Ensemble enables a similar challenge to experienced musicians, modular enthusiasts or people with no previous knowledge because of its unique musical and social acoustic experience. The focus during this sensual and musical process is listening to each other and a collective ambition.

LeafAudio Microphonic Soundbox - Audio Demo

Published on Aug 3, 2017

"Here's a first demo of our Microphonic Soundbox. It's ready and will be available as a DIY kit and ready made unit via

It is an acoustic instrument which I created 20 years ago and finally we made it public now to share it with you. 2 internal contact mics can be amplified (100x Gain) and mixed to the mono out as a line signal. If an external signal is inserted, mic 1 is switched off. Supercool for creating otherworldly sounds and ambiences, great for processing with hard- and software."

Creating a new acoustic synths label for these moving forward. No, guitars don't count. Guitar synths, however, do. :)

Improvisation for Modular & Electric Piano

Published on Feb 15, 2017 rupertlally

"A short improvisation, using the sample and hold on the Harvestman Polivoks Modulator to provide some slowly changing pitch cv to 3 modules: Braids, Tides and the Leaf Audio NBTA, whose envelopes are slowly being triggered from the 4MS QCD. The mix is sent through the Intellijel Rainmaker and Clouds.
I'm improvising along with the modular using the Nord Electro 2."
