REDEMPTION AT PULPIT ROCK: Live Dawless Outdoor Jam on #Volca #Modular #Keys #Drum #Bass Zoom #MS70

Also a custom DIY stand .. still in dev!

Continuous live dawless jam / improvisation Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes in Mount Victoria Blue Mountains Australia on Korg #VolcaDrum #VolcaModular #VolcaBass #VolcaKeys Solo on KO2 Reverb & Delay on Zoom #MS70CDR directly recorded on #ZoomH6 plus ambient sound no other processing Video: filmed on GoPro 5 in HD, the moths are added as an effect in FCPx, aim is to have more natural, epic backgrounds in future with real time natural sound mixed in.

Normally: All the Volcas and the KO2 are routed through MickXer 5 into 1. That then goes into the Zoom MS70 delay/reverb in stereo, then into the Zoom H6 recorder which powers my Beyer DT770 headphones for great mix balancing in real time. The volcas are sync’d as usual in a cv chain with each others in/out and v Drum as master. Also the Zoom H6 will eventually record 3 stereo tracks simultaneously (the vKeys and vModular through the effects) the vDrum and vBass (direct) and the two mics recording the ambient outdoor sounds live. For outdoor jams, power comes from normal phone style powerbanks 10000 & 20000mAh and I use the myvolts ripcord 5V to 9V USB adapter

VOLCA MODULAR: FIRST EXCURSION – No Talk. Instructional try 1 hr after box opening! #Volca #Modular

Obviously modular tends to be skewed more towards sound design than musicality (mostly), so please take that into account on this first run through – Been wanting to get the modular since it came out but wasn’t high on my list. But had a try out at a local music shop yesterday and was very impressed – you can certainly get sounds out of it that a basic east coast style analog synth can’t. Even in this first take super encouraged by some of the possibilities. Much of it is accidental (unless of course you have a wall of modular synths and you see this as a little toy to play with on the plane), but those new to it would likely be inspired to dive in deeper! Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes on Korg Volca Modular (after one hour unboxing) Minor additions from Volca Beats & Strymon Blue Sky

“OMMADAWN Pt 1” IMPRO based on Mike Oldfield’s original Cover on music tech guitars sax clarinet

Ommadawn by Mike Oldfield – Performed, reimagined © Gary P Hayes

Ommadawn was one of my favourite albums as a kid, and it became a masterpiece in my mind – and while playing with some cinematic drum samples today I thought it would be fun to weave my setup around the opening section (which contains the chords of the final build up section of side one of course) – it is not meant to be a slavish cover (although there are a couple of close sections) but an homage of sorts.

There are a few edits as the original jam went on for 55 mins! – so a couple of sections miss the ‘development’ as I was playing/programming bits in, especially the chordal arpeggios in section 2 … Played on Roland #SE02 Behringer #ModelD Elektron #Digitakt & #Analog4 Waldorf #Streichfett#Volca Drums Korg #Kaossilator Pro Arturia #Keysteps Novation #BassStation2#Casio Piano Strymon #BlueSky Korg #Kaoss KP3 Roland #System1 Soprano Sax Classical Guitar Bliss Clarinet and ESP #LTD 8 string guitar

WINGS OF DESIRE 2119: Angelic Analog EDM. #BehringerModelD, #SE02, Analog 4, BlueSky, #BassStation2

Composed & performed © Gary P Hayes Very loosely inspired by one of my favourite films ‘Der Himmel über Berlin” and the recent passing of its star Bruno Ganz.

Performed using (with no post production): Roland #SE02 Behringer #ModelD Strymon #BlueSky Elektron #Digitakt & #Analog4 Waldorf #Streichfett#Volca Bass Drums Arturia #Keysteps Novation #BassStation2 Casio CDP200R #Piano Arturia #iSEM on iPad & Akai #EWI 4000s through Behringer EM600 delay

RAVEL IN ANDROMEDA: Analog Synth Story Impros. SE02, Model D, Analog 4, Keysteps, System 1

Note: At 14:50 the volcas power off (dodgy Volca mix unit) meaning sync to the Model D and SE02 go off temporarily, I restart it of course without skipping a beat, sort of 🙂
