in honour of 202:DAY, the ambient ping is presenting a special edition of drone:klub.
lyle crilly, dustin good, scott m2 & jamie todd will be doing a special presentation on the 202 at 8pm, followed by a full-on drone:klub open-improv session.
the roland mc-202 microcomposer was released in 1983 and combines a monophonic analog synthesizer voice (like an sh-101) with a two-voice sequencer (like an mc-4). there will be some personal stories, music examples and talk of mods and usages old and new.
droners, friends and audience are all welcome for this presentation and community drone immersion experience.
scalesofangels will be participating in the drone and hope to see you there,
drone:klub:16 on friday february 2nd at the roland inspiration centre (1179 king street west, suite 001, toronto, ontario).
attendance is free.
i wont lie.
in a bit of a creative fuzz.
what does that even mean?
i have two full albums of music finished and mixed.
when i listen to them i feel they are worthy chapters in the sound story i have been trying to tell.
i have music i am making that fulfills me.
but as of late, i have asked myself a difficult question.
creating is one thing.
creating when you feel a sense of indefinable futility is another.
there are times where i look at the immense possibilities and potential and wish to wade in it.
there are others where i am frightened by the possibilities and potential of all of the unknowns.
but for weeks i have felt as though i am pushing against granite.
i feel like a mouse drowning in a bucket.
the weight that gives my soul substance is the same weight that makes me feel as though my feet were rooted in stone.
a month of writing and recording ends with two nights of exporting.
new sounds soon.
ain’t it funny, that just when i feel as though, those black and white keys, are revealing themselves to me, as though through some kind of magical veil, that i discover a method of oscillating that is both a step back to comfort, yet a mystery through it’s lavk of convention.
discovering a new path.
‘3 minute inventions – 012’ was recorded using a roland go mixer, and is a blend of make noise 0-coast, arturia minibrute and roland gaia, sequenced using a arturia keystep, and modulated via korg and roland aira effect units.
thank you for watching the inventions. although more were recorded, this is the last that i will be posting.
stay tuned and warped.
scalesofangels will be participating in drone:klub:13 on thursday november 2nd at the roland inspiration centre (1179 king street west, suite 001, toronto, ontario).
droning starts at 8.
attendance is free.
a bit of a delayed response as i play catch up.
thank you to dale, audio bleed and belljar cafr for hosting a great event last friday, and to all who came out to experience the sounds.
cetacea and hexzuul put on incredible and inspiring performances and if you missed them, you NEED to check them out.
don’t allow yourself to be programmed.
find yourself in the drone.
