modular notes about the track:

Main sequencing for pitch and some gates from winter modular’s Eloquencer, the drums are triggered out of 1010’s bitbox. The intro beat and outro beat are effected by a mutable ripples, the main beat has some slight effect on it, percussion is also spit out from the bitbox. Bitbox has 3 LFO modulation inputs for various purposes and the triggers mainly come from Joranalogue switch 4 and Shakmat’s time wizard.

Bass sound from AJH transistor core VCO is heavily effected by Happy nerding FX aid (not sure which effect tho) but also runs dry into the Hexmix system and another copy travels trough the wonderful Arcaico ZAAR where the filter is modulated by Xaoc devices Batumi.The LFO and the envelope triggers follow a sequence out of ST modular Path. There is also the bizarre Jezabel pkhia filter that deforms the sound a bit.

Main melody out of Plaits, into ZVEX lo fi junkie, Pkhia, FX aid… Further up the track the melody is also delayed by Strymon magneto.

Intelijel Atlantis kicks in with an ethereal pad sound that passes Xaoc devices Belgrad, and  a copy of the sound goes out of the rig for some extra juice by 2 pedals in chain, Cooper FX arcades (tape dly) and the Demedash T-120 VHS delay. 

When the break kicks in Atlantis’s filter is modded with a trigger from Shakmat White gallop.

The overall mix in the hexmix system adds up 2 aux effects, mutable clouds and FX aid ( not sure which setting of this one either) but not all tracks get these effects.

Not mentioning all the other utilities, multi’s, envelopes, submixers,VCA’s but they are in there somewhere.

[moosdohmen]: The Proverbial Farm started for me as an experiment to combine dub chords with ultra-long envelope release times. Using the Ensemble Oscillator as the main sound source, I added various harmonic modulations. For contrast I used some field recordings, vocal samples, plus different types of noise. All sounds except the beats are processed in the Chase Bliss Generation Loss guitar pedal, which adds extra lo-fi grit and character. I kept the beats pretty laid back, to keep the listener’s focus on the droning evolving sounds. The track was recorded in one take to stereo, and then mastered in Ableton Live.

The sleeve picture is taken on the isle of Vlieland, a huge source of inspiration for me. There is no farm there.

Paul Alstein: Second Summit was born on a rainy afternoon in Amsterdam as I set out to recreate the sound of the rain tapping against the windows of my studio. For this I overlapped various recordings of clicking and popping sounds coming from Mutable Instuments Plaits in LFO-mode. Some of the rain sounds were filtered, other were sent through some delay.


I combined this with an old recording that I had saved on my Make Noise Morphagene (chords with lots of doppler shifts). These recordings occur twice in the track; the second time it is pitched down a few semitones to create a darker ambience. The idea behind this was to recreate the feeling of reaching the top of a mountain only to find that the actual summit is still way ahead of you (happened to me more than once).

The 4 compositions on this album are made of harmonic chord progressions using Neo-Riemannian translations. Neo-Riemannian theory is a collection of ideas and models of music theorists such as David Lewin, Brian Hyer, and Richard Cohn and is named after Hugo Riemann (1849–1919), a German musicologist, who had proposed in the 1880’s a system of harmonic transformations that related triad chords directly to each other. The idea behind this theory is that motions between proximate triad chords can be described by a few basic transformations that change only one note from the chord a half or whole tone up or down. NR-transformations were implemented as algorithms in the firmware of the Ornament & Crime Eurorack module. The O&C module generates quantized voltage signals that can be used to define the individual pitches of three oscillators such that they produce musical triad chords.

7 track LP - find it on bandcamp HERE


The Krell Patch is a challenge to replicate the sound and structure of the Krell song (from SF movie Forbidden Planet -1956) with a modular synthesizer. 


J Daniel Cramer is bringing Krell music to the next level with his modular, as the Krellberg Variations.

Full English Breakfast contains 7 tracks (404 seconds each) that are cuts from a live performance in London during the fall of 2022. 


This unique modular music sounds like an orchestra from an other planet that is playing a composition in scales that are not related to earth and humans, but definitely very organic!


Daniel made a youtube series of 45 videos about The Krellberg Variations.

modular notes about the track:


As a celebration of 50 years Serge, this Nordlys EP was performed on a 4U Serge system built by Gregory Delabelle (the artist) himself.


Accidental Patterns 1 is is a fast moving melodic arpeggio. Nordlys understands the art of creating a story with subtle movements. He adds small amounts of sounds, such as herb leaves that make the difference between an ordinary dish and something delicious.


Accidental Pattern 2 is a pulsating polyrhythmic trip, bare and pure. 

Both tracks are 404 second cuts of a live recording.


Accidental Pattern 1+2 is …an accidental accident: while checking the mastering of Accidental Pattern 1 and Accidental Pattern 2 it turned out that they blend perfectly together! Accidental Pattern 1+2 is a continuous crossfade mix between both tracks.

The result is a trip of 404 seconds, enjoy!

3 track EP - find it on bandcamp HERE


Organisme is a 3 track EP from the mind of Onsturicheit (Peter Moorkens). 

“Organel” starts with abstract chants that evolve in a slow moving whirlpool, lifting you up and letting you look down on new worlds that pass by in slow motion.

“Celdeling” is a sonic representation of the production process of organic structures: reproduction via cell division.

“Membraam” sounds like the inside engine of an organic structure. A lot is moving, but we’re stuck inside.


“Organel” and “Membraan” use the following setup: https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1365069

For “Celdeling” this set has been used: https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1786054 , with focus on 3 Moog Mothers en Medic melodies (4 voices controlled by the Erica Black sequencer) 

In addition, the following cases were used for this EP: https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1923635 and https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1909896

J Daniel Cramer is known for his Krellberg Variations. Krell refers to Forbidden Planet, the beloved 1956 cult-classic of Sci-Fi cinema. The film's soundtrack (by Louis and Bebe Barron) lacks real-world references. 

J Daniel Cramer is taking this to the next level: he is modulating the sound of oscillators in such a way that they become living organic creatures. 

The great thing about A Canon of Valor is that it sounds small and vulnerable instead of bombastic: on the silver screen of your imagination you don’t see spaceships at warp speed, but strange creatures wobbling around in their nests made of cosmic straw. 

It's like an orchestra from an other planet that is playing a composition in scales that are not related to earth and humans, but definitely very organic!

How does modular triphop sound?

It sounds like Halfgeleider.

Raw, dubby-around-90-bpm, nostalgic without getting cheesy, samples: many elements that will remind you of the british Ninja Tune label downtempo releases, but at the same time also very now-2022.


No single track of 404 seconds track this time, but a 20 minute flow of 3 tracks of 404 seconds.
Why? Because 20 minutes and 12 seconds is much better to immerse in the world of Halfgeleider (Maarten Voeten).

This raw slow music is a perfect 20 minute sound meditation workout for your mind, although this is not "ambient music" at all. 

Why don’t you try it yourself: you can pay what you want anyway… but your mental healing is guaranteed! 

modular notes about the track:


Robert Pabst:

'404’ is deliberately composed for modular404 where all tracks are exactly 404 seconds long and all sounds need to come from the modular.

To make sure it’s exactly 404 to the millisecond, I’ve set up WestLicht Peformer to 120 BPM, which rounds off to the second.

It has six sections of exactly one minute, and a 44 second outro. Each minute is closed by a break.

 

I used Plaits as the main VCO for this track which bleeps every 10 seconds. The ‘end of minute’ bleeps cascade with increasing resolution.

Why so mathematical? It’s about time running out as tension grows.
The track ‘paints’ a DoomsDay machine that builds up energy with every minute passed.

The ambiance is enhanced by the ticking clock, with a manual wind-up at the start (evil is man made).

In real life, this is my IKEA kitchen timer, recorded with a field recorder and loaded into BitBox.

The BitBox also plays acoustic percussion, which are slams on the rim of a real kick drum, recorded by myself at Abbey Road Amsterdam and loaded as a spliced sample in BitBox. So no factory samples are used.

 

The Rhythm is super simple, but it becomes complex because of the Desmodus Versio with lots of modulation, specially the gate to the ‘f*ck shit up’ CV makes a great ‘burst’ effect. With every minute passing, new Plaits parts are added, like notes drowned in reverb, hats, a snare solo, drones and finally the super saw with distortion from Ruina Versio. The drones are recorded in the DAW and further processed with DearVR 3D ambisonics. When you listen with headphones, you’ll hear them move all around you. There’s a tone added from Mordax Data, which is tuned to 404 Hz. Most of the track is recorded in one take, but additional material is added with extra takes. Having the machine running at 120 BPM makes it easy to add more layers without cutting and pasting. It also gives you the opportunity to modulate manually. However, the patches use the eight LFO’s from OCHD, four LFO’s from 1010Music Toolbox and the amazing Curve Tracks from WestLicht Performer.

 

The polyphonic pad is coming from a second BitBox and played manually with the on-screen keyboard. I demonstrate this technique a lot in my videos.

The final seconds are used for a ‘time’s up’ by the kitchen timer. Obviously, there was a bit of post-production involved to make a perfect fit.

Stefan Robbers:

This track was composed and recorded with my first eurorack modular setup mid 2014. I was invited for one of the legendary Noodlebar sessions at Roodkapje Rotterdam to play live. This recording is the final rehearsal in the studio a few days before.

I do not recall all the modules used, but to name a few that are for certain: Mutable Instruments Braids, Makenoise Maths, MFB Osc03, Qu-Bit Nebulae, Koma SVF, Doepfer SEM filter, Doepfer A-149 1/2, Tiptop Z4000, Circuit Abbey G8, Intellijel Dixie II and uVCA-II, Cylonic Cyclebox.

modular notes about the track:

Thierry: "I use to work and think about modular music as painting and drawing. The background of the tracks in made with the sounds recorded in my garden: bugs, birds and noise which are blurry as dry pastels, the sharp sound of Rings is my asian ink to draw thin lines, the Moog organic sound is oil fat and dark paint and I like to introduce color with Clouds, fed by the Expert Sleeper samples made with Rings sounds. Maths is used to finish as mixer, attenuverter, AD and LFO as well as the Moog. Hermod is the brain."

    modular notes about the track:

    The recurring growling sound is the word "Waveform" produced by Plaits in its last green mode stored in the sample memory of Magneto and pitched down. The same Plaits module produced the low drone which was stored inside Clouds freeze buffer; Plaits was then free again and able to output the random hihats audible from the middle of the track. 

    The other melodic sparse notes come from Basimilus Iteritas Alter and Dixie II+. 


    The sequencers are Hermod and Marbles, this last module's pitch output shaped by Scales, by selecting the notes manually.

    modular notes about the track:

    "Retrospect is recorded on a stereo track in Live10. When I got Contour1 (Joranalogue) in my rack I started out using it as a VCO. The main lines in the track are recorded samples from sequences done on Contour1 with several FX that I recorded a few months back. I came across them when I started Retrospect. The samples were cut in different clips which are sequenced by ST modular's path. The melody which kicks in half way is sequenced by Eloquencer and spit out by 2hp Pluck and travels through several destinations. It took a lot of time to get the track right, but as mentioned in my bio, I’m just scratching the surface and the learning path is far from an end. I just hope you enjoy it."

It runs on one repetitive sequence (like Berlin school music) programmed on the Stillson Hammer MK 2 (which was clearly a game changer when it took place inside my rack) and is played and tweaked live via the offset capabilities of this amazing sequencer. Previously played during an “Ambiant Lay Down”’ event in Brussels, cYclIc bAckgrOUnd was Recorded in one take in january 2020 via the stereo output of the Befaco Hexmix.

    modular notes about the track:

     

    bassline

    DPO through plague bearer for extra distortion, through A106-5 to tame it. A mod wheel is controlling the filters, making them scream towards the end. Sequenced by either a Moskwa, or manually by pressing René notes. A dubbed Shapeshifter part through Polaris is adding extra unharmonic metallic noise klangs as well

     

    main sequence

    E370 in morph+fold mode, using just a simple sine, going through an E440, sequenced by Metropolis (several stored variations of the main sequence), I'm opening up the wavefolder and E440 cutoff manually, and "play" the metropolis throughout the song.

    - percussion is Rings + Elements, getting triggers from two outputs os Branches + some random modulation

     

    keyboard pad sound

    2 channels of E370 in morph+cloud mode, through clouds with manual pitch shifting (oct up and down), played live on a keystep

     

    bass drum

    basimilus iteritas, triggered by the reset pulse of the 7-step sequence on Metropolis

     

    Pulse Mandala: "A lot of things are modulated, and others are manually tweaked. It took me a bit of rehearsing to get the right take down in one go. I recorded multitrack (6 parts) for better balancing the mix & FX afterwards."

    SONICrider: "I recorded live in one take – 5 versions of the “TIMELESSNES” arrangement as a stereo recording (Mackie 1604 VLZ pro into Ableton via UAD Apollo). Mastering with Softube Console 1 Solid State Logic SL 4000 emulation and LUFS metering obtaining a -14,1 LUFS. After mastering and listening the 5 version 3 are favs: those 3 shared with friends, musicians & modular404 to select the final version."

    “However, Struggle” relies heavily on the Verbos Complex OSC provides the main sequence, which is run through an Intellijel Rainmaker and a Makenoise Erbeverb to create that dense ambience in the background.

     

    The bass is classically sequenced.

     

    All additional pads and melodies are played live via a quantized pressure points and through the same effects chain on top.

     

    Drums: mainly Hexinverter Mutant Bassdrum and Snare and the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteras Alter, run through the Mutant Hot Glue.

     

    All ambience channels where run through a dbx compressor to achieve the pumping side chain effect halfway through.
