LIFE TIME: Dawless No Pause Hardware Jam on Elektron #AnalogFour mk2 #VolcaKick #Arturia #Microfreak

The Volca’s are having a little rest this weekend, also I am making them more modular (so I can mix and match smaller configs of them for outdoor use) so … I have had an Analog 4 mk1 since they came out back in 2013, and even had two of them for a few years. But it kinda got buried a little in my dawless studio. So literally got this mk2 yesterday and loving the ergonomics of it… this is the 3rd little loop jam I did with it. Rather than use a track for bass drum and of course it is only 4 voice poly, so I added the Volca Kick and Arturia MicroFreak to build out the piece.

MEGALONG: FEAR OF FIRE. Outdoor #Volca Impro Jam. #Modular #Keys, Ewi 4000s #Strymon Blue Mountains

Please note I was affected by the Australia fires in mid December meaning we evacuated mid to late December because the largest fire in Australia’s history, Gospers, got within 2km of our house after two months of smoke and alerts. This piece was performed the evening before many of us were told to get out of the area, the first time on Nov 12. Continuous live dawless jam / improvisation (note the drone shots are me flying/filming, after the jam, so obviously not a synch recording!) – only the locked off camera is the actual performance. Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes at Hargraves LO Blue Mountains Australia on Korg #VolcaBass #VolcaModular #VolcaDrum #VolcaKeys. Solos on Akai #EWI 4000s Reverb on #Strymon #BlueSky – the four volcas and 1 Ewi are routed through the tiny MyVolts MickXer, a passive stereo 5 into 1 box. The stereo output of that goes into the sampler/JamMan and the stereo from that sent through the BlueSky to the zoom H6 Licensed orchestral loop (from Nano Muzik Loops) on Digitech JamMan Solo XT directly recorded on #ZoomH6 plus ambient sound no other processing.

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

Ambient Electronica/Dance GaryPHayes GaryPHayes Music Hardware Jams Review Volca

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
