"Modular Conveniences 2" [2.2 MB .mp3]
"Modular Conveniences" [3.5 MB .mp3]
"Kick Effects" [3.6 MB .mp3]
Short tunes (sort of on the noise tip) done with modular synth (or synth module) and used in recent videos.
Another multimedia journey (joke):
Artistic "problems" continue to be "worked through" on Vimeo (a more self-deprecating blogger might add, without the pesky inconvenience of an "audience").
In this case, the problems of how modular synth "monads" interact with found and manipulated video "entelechies."
Remove scare quotes for approximate meaning.

...from Ryz. Ouch.
"Gridhopper" was supposed to be a parody of multimedia journeys, guess I need to work on being even MORE desultory.
"glitchr" showed up in my twitter timeline today, smearing a slug-trail of typography into other people's posts as I scrolled (commencing from a small puddle). Funny -- thanks, Petra, for RT-ing.
(The balance of Jon Williams' tweet says "really proud of my dad for bucking the youtube real name bullshit")
Posted on Vimeo [since removed].
The music is a shortened version of a "Music for Sidstation and Analog Drum Machine" piece from long ago.
The grids are based on a video installation "LED GIF Grid CRT."

"Retro Synth Fantasy" [4 MB .mp3]
Was testing out a new sound card and wanted to strain the connection, so this tune has fast parts, MIDI echo, and gratuitous high powered flanging. (The card passed.)
Also, this is done in 3/4 with slightly uneven measures.
The synth is Retrologue, a softsynth that ships with Cubase. Basically I like anything with chords.
Update: minor tweak near the end; reuploaded.
