Many thanks for the glowing response , Joe  :)

We didn't use a physical cello, but on the final track I was certainly
playing a synth that sounds like one. I do like those rich cello timbres.

We're surprised to not see more responses to Filaments yet.
Having distance from it now I can certainly say its way up there on
my favourites list.  Hopefully more people with check it out.

I think I'm more suited to developing a herbivore type of creature that moves around slowly and befriends plants, but I'm just having so much fun right now destroying everything that moves. 

You have mistaken your true calling  :D

My daughter said to me the other day: "Dad you have start this game, but go for carnivor, it looks like a lot more fun ... and less trouble."

By the way, I had named the tracks wrong initially ... they are correct now.

Now available from DataObscura:



Description Without Place: Filaments
Filaments brings together, for the first time, the field-recording & sample
manipulations of James McDougall (Entia Non) with the more synth-based
skills of Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans).
The result is a remarkable and unified flow of creativity that is ripe with juicy sonic
details and moody atmospheres, and that is woven through with subtle melodic
threads. Contemporary, glitchy, detailed, and musically absorbing, this is a work
to come back to again and again.

Filaments was composed via long-distance collaboration - Australia to Canada.
Final compositions and mixing by APK.

tracks & samples:

- The Gold Tree Is Blue
- Physical World
- Nostalgia
- Cloister
- Sunday Morning
- Perifery
- She Conceals Herself

Available as either CD or Download encoded at 256kbs : DataObscura

A full track can be heard on the Radio page --  Here
Enjoy !

Thanks.

In The Morning:
The Circular Ruins – Falling Into the Sky – Blue Oasis
(Nothing short of spectacular….it’s been while since I listened to the album and I have to admit “It Is Always to Late” is one of best songs of the year when it comes to ambient)

That's great to hear, Fern. Many thanks !

"North" is indeed a fine album.
Would be good to see him release more work.

At DataObscura I released his Chronostatic Scenes album:

Dave M. in his earlier post got me playing

- Casino Versus Japan: Go Hawaii
bit of a classic. Certainly good to come back to it.

Also today
- Kraftwerk: Autobahn

Midi is a thing that can be routed many ways.

You could, for example, have the midi Out from the AN1x go straight to the Virus midi In, then the Virus midi Thru goes to Cubase if you want to record the midi. That way the Virus is sure to be playing at the same time as the AN1x. Should not be any latency. It simplifies things.

1534
I don't use Cubase or a mac. So things may be different.

You should find that when you send midi time code from Cubase to the synths that they automatically sync to it. Otherwise there will be an internal or external sync option in the synths.  You can test the synths using an arpeggiator patch, which should speed/slow with different timings of Cubase.

Somewhere in Cubase is the option to send Midi Time Code  (MTC). You just have to make sure its going out the correct midisport ports.

I have a Kaoss Pad 3 and use it a lot -- does stuff I haven't found elsewhere.
Plus it's just a ton of fun to play with.


Got me wondering what FX boxes people have that they really enjoy.
Especially boxes that do quirky, interesting things, or that you use in interesting and gratifying ways.

I'm only thinking of hardware here. Lets leave the crazy software world for another thread.

Now available from DataObscura:



The Winterhouse: Lost
Follow-up to the acclaimed debut album, Slow Promises, by the combined talents of
Robert Davies and Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans). 
The drone mastery of Davies is overlaid with Kerby's melodic subtlety and sonic creativity
in an organic, addictive, and flowing musical narrative. Lost stands as another testament
to the power and depth of contemporary ambient music and its ability to open remarkable
sonic vistas and moving landscapes.

tracks/samples

- Lost
- Leaving
- Solitary Lives
- The Four Corners of Night
- Clearing

Available as either CD or Download encoded at 256kbs : DataObscura
