Odd Thing


A strange composition on the Arp Od(d)yssey and the matching Arp 1601 sequencer, alongside an Akai S612 sampler. I'm using the 1601 to trigger and pitch the Odyssey as well as the Akai (via a CV to MIDI converter). Its the same idea as this video. I love this patch! I shall call it THE REANIMATOR patch

Word of the Week #75


Cling Film




I have made a video to go with my latest Benge release (which I am sure you have already downloaded). The video was partially shot on my iPhone which I wrapped in clingfilm so I could submerge it in a tank of water which I then poured ink into. The clingfilm didn't work. And now my iPhone doesn't work. Never mind I needed an upgrade anyway

Mag Stash


I've posted before about vintage magazine archives (e.g. here), and I just found another one - this time UK music technology magazines from the 70s and 80s. Mu:zines is the place to go for a serious hit of prototypical studio porn. The way I found it was by doing a search for a review on a very obscure 1980s reverb unit (the Dynacord DRP16) and it led me to the online version of the December 1984 issue of Home Studio Recording magazine. So if you are like me and prefer buying pieces of equipment made yonks ago (they have a certain sound you know) then you can step back in time too and read all the latest reviews!

Green House


I don't know anything about this house like for example where it is or who made it and when (i'm guessing the 1970s) but I like it very much indeed:
