Alba Ecstasy - Radio Waves

Alba Ecstasy takes us deep on another space jam. He's using an assortment of fun gear on this track, with the drone provided by SoundScaper. This one takes a while to build up, but it sounds gorgeous with all the layers he introduces.

"Coming back from a one week exhausting trip, The Journey to the Edge of the Universe continues with Ep. 6 based on OP-1 - radio, SoundScaper - drone, Quadnic-Braids-Tides-Clouds - drone and sequence, microKorg - lead, Virus Ti2 - pads, Circuit - drumbs, bass, sequence."

Upcoming update of SoundScaper app

The upcoming update of SoundScaper app will greatly expand the features of oscillator control. SoundScaper oscillators is basis of experiments with the sounds construction. With these additions you can create much more new, exciting and unexpected sounds and textures.

Among new features - enhanced noise control, different kinds of distortions based on simulations of unstable work of clock and pulse-width modulation modules, amplitude modulation, new possibilities of controls by the trigger, and even frequency modulation for the final mangling of samples.

And even more. This update will contain a lot of predefined oscillator presets with the most unusual sounds ready to use in your soundscapes.

IPAD APP CAFE: I Am a Noisey Person!

In dealing with the title of today’s blog post, I am reporting on the results of an experiment I performed with DRC Polyphonic Synthesizer, AUM and FieldScaper. For the uninitiated, AUM is a utility app that allows you to use and mix several apps and effects. I have previously covered AUM in another post. Likewise, FieldScaper is a field recording/audio-mangling app, also covered by a previous post(feel free to look through the archives). New to the table is DRC polyphonic Synthesizer. DRC is a free app that models an analog polyphonic synth, utilizing two oscillators, a sub oscillator, ring modulation and noise. It has all the usual accoutrements (filter, envelope generator, et al) and an effects section. What’s interesting to note is that the delay and reverb on board can be modulated by an LFO. Because of this feature, I began my sonic brew.

Emptiness Of Reality (Live)

This album was compiled from original tracks of my video demos recorded at live performance on analogue tape on Sony TC-510-2 Tapecorder without mixing and post processing. In videos were used others copies that were processed especially for these videos. Although video don't have name of tracks but these tracks were created as single compositions previously and were used in demos.

These compositions assembled from pieces of real world sounds and fictional samples convey a sense an illusion of reality also as in these compositions usual sounds become something completely different and create another reality.

These compositions are sound art that I create basically with use two my applications SoundScaper and FieldScaper. But also I use many other audio equipments for creating original samples that I use further in these apps.

For samples in these compositions were used synths Roland Juno-60, Korg MS2000, Yamaha DX21, Moog Slim Phatty, Moog Etherwave Theremin, Clavia Nord Lead 3, Casio CZ-101, Polivoks and several DIY soundboxes. For processing source samples I used Roland RE-201 Space Echo, Roland SDE-2000, Akai MFC42, Eventide Harmonizer H949, Yamaha REV7 and several others. Original tapes digitized by RME Fireface UCX.
