This is a collection of auditory sketches I performed with the infamous Metasonix R-54 vacuum-tube driven synth module.designed by mastermind Eric Barbour.
About the R-54 in Eric Barbour's words...
"Welcome to the strange new world. The R-54 is the most radical, revolutionary module we've ever made. It will change the way you do music synthesis. There has never been an electronic-music product like this before. Even the oddest things that Buchla And Associates or Serge Modular ever made are prosaic and dull compared to the R-54."
Now that's setting the bar high!
This collections of improvised analog modular synth compositions feature the unruly tube driven R-54 module that refuses to be tamed.
The compositions on this ep were recorded live in one take with me tweaking the dials, controls and sometimes live patching. The R-54 is a really deep module that will keep you busy for years.
The proceeds of this auditory sketchbook will all go towards me getting the Metasonix R-51 module. Thanks for supporting my synth module addiction... I'll keep feeding your ears.
