Small afternoon jam with two of my favorite synths: Korg Mono/Poly, Minimoog D, and Roland TR-77 (modified to output trigger signal for the Korg). All played live.

Enjoy a little synthetic rock and roll...

Hey Mooguys.

Yesterday I had a session with an old music mate.
We started from a little melody from Joël Sternheimer. He is the guy studying "prodeodie", that is the influence of melodies on proteins synthesis in living beings. The very one we selected stimulates the synthesis of auxine in vegetals.
Auxine is necessary for vegetals growth, especially it is responsible for photo tropism, i.e. the phenomenon why vegetals grow towards light.

My friend started programming the sequence in a DAW. HE then added a couple of percussive elements and tweaked a bit.

I myself recorded a soft evolutive carpet for that, with a LP and some pedals.

We then added some compression et voilà, servez chaud.



Trees - 5.18


Hope you'lle enjoy it :)

For Halloween thus year I played Theremin on the porch as the Trick or Treaters approached. Many got a kick out of trying the Theremin out and one or two want one for Christmas.

This is the background track I recorded to play over. Not really any "performance" audio to share though.

Track was recorded live.

That's awesome! Were any kids really freaked out? I know a guy who sits on his porch in a costume completely immobile and then when the kids approach he moves and terrifies them!

Thanks. None of the kids were freaked out. Some kind of wondered what it was about, some ignored it, but most thought it was cool. Several got a kick out of trying it out.

My latest (modest) cover of a classic sixties song by renowned Moog Modular artist Mort Garson.
Not quite complete (missing backing vocals harmonies) but that's good enough (and a lot of work).

Minimoog D (bass, lead, synthetic cello), Korg DW8000 (strings), Alesis Ion (organ, electric piano), Roland TR-77 (drums).

All played by hand on multi-track.

Enjoy. Comments, good or bad, welcome.

Should have posted this yesterday! Dug up an old track, actually the first track I recorded with ProTools on my then-new Mac Powerbook - this was 2002!

https://soundcloud.com/hieronymous-seven/tardis

I wanted to experiment and so decided to record the Doctor Who theme song - I grew up in the '70s with the 4th Doctor. No synths, but plenty of Moogerfooger action - the opening riff is actually three tracks of bass - all distorted, one with the MF-101 lowpass, one with the MF-103 phaser, one just distorted. The melody is Wooly Mammoth fuzz through the MF-101.

Bonus points if you can identify the source of the sound effects peppered throughout!

Alain,

Lol, can't say i have ever heard a rendition quite like this before !!

i used to play it on the ships as a Rumba (dance).

There is a SUPERB Johnny Mathis live version somewhere on You-Tube i once saw. Its with a Big Band and i think it went from Samba to Fast Swing. Brilliant arrangement.

Thanks monsterjazzlicks. I was strongly inspired by Julie London's version (also found on YT). Although there are a few missing things, here and there...

My Minimoog can't match Julie's sexy voice, although it tries very hard. lol ! :lol:

Ok, i did not know it was Julie London. Our female singer used to sing it in the key on G. i think your version sounds like its in key of Bb ??

Yes, A# (or Bb). I've heard this song played in many other keys, too, depending on who plays it and sings it... :roll:
