KORG Polysix Arpeggiator

video upload by Matt Wright Music

"I don't spend a great deal of time with arpeggiators in my normal course of writing or performing but one of my favorite use cases is to set one and then have hands free to knock around with other settings on the synth. That's exactly what's happening in this video. Hope you enjoy!"

"Also possibly known as a PE-1000, I picked up this keyboard a few months ago and finally got it cleaned up and the few small repairs done that it needed. It's a lot of fun to see what KORG was up to in the late 70's!

For this demo I used only the saw wave and just modulated the filter (called a traveler in this case) to get the different tones you hear. I gave just a bit of low end boost via EQ and I added plenty of reverb via Valhalla Supermassive."

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Pianist, composer and Musical Director David Cook was born in San Diego to a musical family and raised in Columbus, Ohio. Now living in New York City, he has enjoyed a varied career of performing, recording and producing.

A graduate of the University of Michigan school of music, David has music-directed and played for many notable artists, including 10-time Grammy Award-winner Taylor Swift, Thomas Rhett, Emmy/Oscar/Tony winner Ben Platt, Maren Morris, Shoshana Bean, Lizz Wright, Academy Award winner Jennifer Husdon, Kesha, Utada Hikaru, Halsey, NSYNC, Billy Porter, Tei Shi and Shayna Steele. He has also played piano in jazz groups led by drummers Mark Guiliana and Red Baraat’s Sunny Jain, guitarist Greg Howe, saxophonists Adam Kolker and Bob Reynolds, as well as two-time Grammy-nominated trombonist Alan Ferber.

David has released two critically acclaimed records on the Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records label: Pathway (2010) and Scenic Design (2015). Produced by Ben Wendel of Kneebody, Scenic Design features David Smith on trumpet, Wendel on saxophone, Matt Clohesy on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums. Two-time Grammy Award-winner composer and bandleader Maria Schneider says “Scenic Design is full of heart, intelligence, and simply fantastic playing… every piece thoughtfully carries the listener along with evolving nuance, expression, and harmonic details.”

David is a member of the faculty at Montclair State University as Adjunct Professor of Jazz at the John J. Cali school of music. He also represented the United States in 2008 and 2017 with ensembles through Jazz at Lincoln Center and the U.S. State Department. Those travels included Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait, and provided performances and clinics to audiences across the regions.

Other musicians that David has recorded or performed with include Dennis Chambers, Quincy Davis, John Ellis, Nir Felder, Tomas Fujiwara, Christian McBride, Donny McCaslin, Marcus Miller, Robert Randolph, Sachal Vasandani, and Victor Wooten.

We chatted with David on how he uses Sequential instruments in his music.

"In C" Performer for iPad & 50th Anniversary of "In C" - sfSoundOrchestra Event

iTunes: "In C" Performer for iPad - sonomatics

"Fifty years ago, Terry Riley essentially launched the Minimalism movement with the premiere of 'In C', influencing iconic composers like Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and John Adams.

Now, you are able to recreate history in the comfort of your own home.

'In C' Performer for iPad allows a single person to play 'In C', normally an ensemble work, as a solo performer. You can play the piece using the Built-In sounds, or via MIDI (through a USB camera connector or WiFi MIDI).

Double-tapping on a sliders will 'group' them together so you can adjust the volume of multiple instruments at once."

commemorating the 50th anniversary of
Terry Riley's In C

On November 2, 1964 at The San Francisco Tape Music Center, 321 Divisidero, Terry Riley essentially launched Minimalism with the premiere of In C. Performers included Jeannie Brecken, Steve Reich, Jon Gibson, Terry Riley, Warner Jepson, Stan Schaap, Sonny Lewis, Ramon Sender, James Lowe, Morton Subotnick, Tony Martin, Mel Weitzman, Pauline Oliveros, and Phil Winsor. Although this classic work is often cited for its influence on composers like Glass, Reich, and Adams, its use of open instrumentation and dynamic form determined individually during the performance is perhaps more radical, and certainly more relevant to today’s Bay Area experimental music scene.

This performance is also the “App Release Party” of a new iPad app created by sfSound’s Matt Ingalls and Henry Warwick from Ryerson University (Toronto). Prof. Warwick will be present performing on the app as part of the orchestra. This extraordinary piece of software allows one person to play "In C", which is normally an ensemble work, as a solo performer. In this this way, and in a first-of-its-kind performance, he will be performing as an ensemble, with an ensemble.

Malocculsion is the solo recording/performance moniker of Oakland based sound/visual artist malocculsion proto of Ratskin Records. Proto uses voice, tapes, loops, homemade electronics, and field recordings to create a dark mirror of the unknown through audio and visual trap door psychosis and high tension performances. Proto also runs and co-curates the Ratskin Records and Lewcid Joosebox imprints and often can be seen as the lead roadie for the Styrofoam Sanchez project. proto has solo recorded works planned for release on Tusco/Embassy and Ratskin Records.

Danishta Rivero (Voicehandler,Blood Wedding) and Sarah Elena Palmer (EFFT, Lutra Lutra) are Gosling: an electro-acoustic soundscape project that uses analog machines and acapella effects. The Gosling code of conduct is that each improvisation adhere to the journey of the sound, without rush, fear, or assumption."
