A music I’ve made for a video game. I try to do sort of “8 bit music” only with my Volca Beats, Keys and my Microbrute.
Hope you’ll like it

All you need is a Patchblock, a Mac or Windows PC and our free software. The software allows you to program your module the way you want. This is done in a so called “visual programming language”, or in other words, you don’t have to go into 100% geek mode and write code to make it happen. Visual programming is easy. You choose from a variety of low level sound processing elements and combine their functions by connecting them with virtual cables – a bit like a modular synthesiser, but in software. Your repertoire of virtual modules include various oscillators, filters, delays, and even modules for algorithmic composition.
Our editor lets you emulate how your “patch” would sound, and once you’re happy with it you can upload it to your Patchblock. This is done by simply connecting it per USB. Once programmed, you can unplug it and jam away. Patchblocks are small and battery powered, so you can put them in your pocket and rock with them wherever you want.

All sounds produced by 4 Patchblocks with the following patches:

Twilight (2013) for laptop orchestra
by Ge Wang
performed by Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk)
Bing Concert Hall @ Stanford University, May 2013.
Inspired by the classic science-fiction short story “Twilight” by John W. Campbell (published in 1934, under the pseudonym “Don A. Stuart”), this piece ruminates not of the dawn, ascension, nor triumph of the human race, but of one possible demise set seven million years in the future. This end is not one of annihilation through war, nor decimation from famine or disease, but a golden decrescendo of defeat brought on by the gradual, peaceful, but unstoppable usurping of technology and machines — and the loss of man’s curiosity and sense of wonder. From the original text:
“Twilight – the sun has set. The desert out beyond, in its mystic, changing colors. The great, metal city rising straight-walled to the human city above, broken by spires and towers and great trees with scented blossoms. The silvery-rose glow in the paradise of gardens above.”
i. The Dead City
“And all the great city-structure throbbing and humming to the steady gentle beat of perfect, deathless machines built more than three million years before – and never touched since that time by human hands. And they go on. The dead city. The men that have lived, and hoped, and built – and died to leave behind them those little men who can only wonder and look and long for a forgotten kind of companionship. They wander through the vast cities their ancestors built, knowing less of them than the machines themselves.”
ii. A Song of Longing
“And the songs. Those tell the story best, I think. Little, hopeless, wondering men amid vast unknowing, blind machines that started three million years before – and just never knew how to stop. They are dead – and can’t die and be still.”
This is the first installment in the Twilight series for various and mixed media. The cycle explores the psychology, longing, beauty and sadness of a twilight of humanity ending not in a bang, but an irreversible powerdown, basked in the golden, lingering, dying glow of man’s dusk.
It is a video that was broadcast on “in the classroom of Techne image” of NHK.
This is a video you want to test the hypothesis that sound rain that, or not than is made in the integrated sound of water droplets hit the thing.

There are quite a few good demos of the AX-80 out there already. I wanted to program a few basic sounds and some unique aspects of the AX-80. Some parts I use the Beatstep sequencer, chord memory, and the Big Sky reverb.
