Rebuilding of the studio

After we had to move from our beloved studio in May, we had to do with all our stuff in several places stored. Now we have a new place in the same old Volkskrant building.

We are almost finished rebuilding the whole studio in a smaller workspace. All the audio cabling and electricity is now in place, the only thing remaining at this moment is the midi cabling and interfacing set up to make the studio fully functional as before. Also some lighting, cosmetic and acoustic updates need to finish it, but all of that will be done this September, after a bit of needed vacation after this double moving, so hopefully we can come back here with some new tracks as we are preparing with the singers Amina and Carelain, and some previews of our new dynamic video mapping visuals. Check back here for more.

New project gets going.

Currently we are working on a new project with electronics (nothing new there) but this time in cooperation with  two wonderful vocalists, Careline and Amina. This opens up a different approach, and new inspiration for creating a new style of music (for us), from spheric and droney to upbeat rythms 'n noise all mixed together in a complete set for stage. Instruments will be 909 - 303 DevilFish - MS10 - MiniMoog - SH101, samples FX and more. Recently we also have been busy Video-mapping, projecting villa Sandwijck in de Bilt on a party at midnight, wich was big fun to do, so finding a stage to perform in the near future is our main goal for now. Meantime we can keep you updated on our progress by posting some sketches of our first tracks to be. These are just recording of live practice sessions, for the moment we will be working on practicing more then we will be with creating final mixdowns. So the tracks being posted here will be there for your enjoyment and will all still be worked out on a later date.
Sneak preview here.

I'm waiting now for the 303 to be returned to me as a devilfish, it should be here any day now,
so soon I will have some new trax available here, the old trax is like history now .
Here's a look at my new mixer

and this is a view of the Korg section where I have the MS10 MS20 MS50 SQ10 MS01 MS02 MS04 PS3100 X911, MS2000BR but also a Gnat, 909, Sherman, 606 and Nord Modular
cannot give you a view of the other side with the FXrack, patchbays and synthrack,
