Generative CLOSE ENCOUNTERS road trip with norns “pixels”, Wingie MKii, Bastl Kastle Drum & TX-6

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Devils Tower is on the horizon. Pixel static notes and MIDI data. The Kastle excites the Wingie.

Alien welcome melodies played backwards and forwards, but probably never in the right order. Only 1970s practical effects here. Or is it all just CG?"

Harmonic halls of noise - Prismatic Spray, norns “pixels”, 1010music lemondrop and TX-6

video upload by Arman Bohn

"The Prismatic Spray provides most of the sonic textures here. The notes it plays are controlled by a single pixel grooving along on the screen on the norns. The sound is then chopped up by the lemondrop and played back at various octaves. The Norns also provides five channels of sine wave drones. Everything is mixed in the TX-6.

You can pick up the Prismatic spray on my tindie shop:"

teletype/just friends grid instrument played through chase bliss mood mk2

video upload by Matt Lowery

"I made my first teletype/just friends grid instrument, then played it through chase bliss mood mk2

I'm giddy with excitement today, because after studying the teletype grid ops for a couple of days, I was able to whip up my first playable instrument this morning before I'd finished my first cup of coffee. The ops are so powerful and accessible! I've never played a melody on an instrument that I coded before, so I wanted to share this video as a kind of mile marker. It's nothing fancy- just a row of faders that send note data to Just Friends over i2c and a giant button that sends triggers. The cool thing to me is that I had this very simple idea and was able to bring it forth into existence in about 15 minutes. That's a new and special feeling."

Meditative infinite reflection pool - 1010music Lemondrop, TX-6, Monome norns “pixels”

video upload by Arman Bohn

"Floating in the ether. My script 'pixels' sends out some vibes in G Phrygian. The notes being determined by the graphics. The 1010music Lemondrop granulates the live input from the norns. The TX-6 mixes it all.

I’ve really enjoyed the lemondrop more lately. That’s great it turning things into swirly soundscapes."

2023/06 - Norns Dub

video upload by Stereoping

"Summer tunes warmup. The Monome Norns running the beautiful 'RAINDROPS' script is sent through a DIY-PCB Juno-6 Chorus with Stereo-mod. The Norns is intentionally not temposynced and accompanied by a modded Alesis HR-16 which makes funny things when one of the Voice Eproms is removed. The HR-16's audio runs through a Yamaha CS-5 lowpass into a DIY Axoloti-based effects unit with lots of knobs for realtime tweaking Reverb/Delay and a little granulizer. The HR-16's midiclock drives a Volca Drum with Midi-Out-mod. The Volca's sequencer's Midinotes (incl. probablitiy and ratchetings) are converted by a little DIY Midi-box into the suitable notes for the Solin8 (starting at 3:10), a cheap 8bit-glitch teensy-based WAV-Drumsounds-Player with downsampling faders.

"Exploring the superb Graintopia script for Norns by infinite digits (

Navigating around 3 audio clips drawn from my outtakes library with the help of the 16n faderbank.

Audio recorded direct to camera with no external FX. Everything you hear is taken straight from the Norns.

(Apologies for the screen flicker. Could not get it to match any of the frame rates I tried. This was the best compromise)"

Great Conjunction FM Fragment Synth Prototype

video upload by Arman Bohn

Great Conjunction FM synth prototype - it’s working! #synthwave #chillwave

"This is one of my favorite pieces I’ve made for a long time. I had it running for around 40 hours this week. The Norns is running my 'pixels' script, which is generating some sine wave blips. It is also sending mini note data to the Prismatic Spray which Casts a haunting melody over the top. Everything is running through the lemondrop, which chops and slices and dices."

Melancholy ambient tones w/ monome norns & Roland J-6

video upload by Arman Bohn

"My norns script 'pixels' drowning on some long notes and plaques. The rolling J6, providing some randomized backing chords. It’s nice to get back to the roland and it makes me think that I should work on a chord generating device. #tinystudio #generativemusic #ambientmusic #electronicmusic #synth #ambient"
