it's good i guess but doesn't it seem like cheating
sometimes, this gear fetishism? just splurging a load of $$$
for more varied / nicer / richer sounds? it's not exactly
inclusive, i think wave choppin' in free / pirate software
etc is more ethical. though i guess i would say that being

When are we going to hear your music, mermaidman?

you can definitely make a whole album with something like
jeskola buzz on a pentium mmx you find in your dads garage
and its amazing and even interesting conceptually. when im
lazy i play around with korg gadget and it would be enough
to make a whole album with it

you must admit though, that there is something in the sound
of some machines that melts your face

i bet it all can be emulated with a pc these days. but i
also think its actually easier to buy some machines, than
waiting for the right software to come out. a midi verb ii
for example cost me 30 bucks and its just awesome. nobody
wanted to emulate cheap 12 bit delays, because why should
they. so the only way to get this sound is by buying this
clunky rack piece

arca is producing mostly on a computer. and his stuff is
versatile you could say. but im getting ear fatigue from his
shit. and i think its because he made his stuff with just a
few tools, mainly with izotope iris. its missing some
frequencies in the spectrum, its missing the muffelige,
pappige, versiffte rundheit

yeah i like the idea of making the best of what you have but
i wouldn't say no to a eventide rack

i had an eventide space and hated it because it wasn't very
transparent; it was kinda like having your original sound
and then adding reverb on top of it instead of melding your
sound & the reverb together. it also sounded very cold to
me. but it seems the older eventide rackmounts are still
held in high regard, it's too bad they're expensive as fuck

of course, this is coming from someone with an alesis
microverb III in his rack, so i may not have room to talk.
but then again, it seems a lot of the older braindance stuff
was done on alesis reverbs, so maybe that's why i'm so
partial to it. i'm now mostly trying to find good reverb
pedals for my setup, the 2 i have my eye on right now are
the afterneath & avalance run from earthquaker devices.

there is not so much new technology happening music wise,
eh? im always looking for stuff. physical modelling and
working with dynamics based on simulations of physical
behaviour is interesting. making sound on a GEFORCE GTX 1080
could be interesting, too


also additive synthesis stuff i dig


warp artists from the 90s until the noughties lived in the
golden age. on one side, they could buy an analog moog for
150 bucks in a thrift store because people wanted to buy the
new stuff and got rid of the old. on the other side
computers were getting more powerful, every year (i have a
macbook from 2013 with 16gb ram, new laptops mostly ship
with 16gb ram, stagnation that never happened before) so
people could have bedroom studios and experiment with
powerful new software

today we still have all these possibilities, but they are
available at different conditions. at the end its the music
that counts. if its good, its good. who cares how its done.
but i like technology. and i like to find out about stuff
and search for machines and concepts. for me its a big part
of electronic music

that's more of a bricasti or a quantec you're looking for

yeah I love gabor lazar's last album, I read he's using
reaktor for sound with max for sequencing. possibly a modded
lazerbass, it has that really raw additive sound.
