Monotonic Labs U-73 and the “Secret Space Time Quartet”

October 19, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A short electronic piece featuring the theremin like sounds of the Monotonic Labs Type- U-73 (sorry not pictured here yet, but will so in future videos), playing over a scored section of heavy electronic makeshift pizzacato strings by an overdriven string section (“these are not even string patches” but parts played on an Ensoniq SD-1). The lo=fi sounds out of the SD-1 were made intentionally..by no means does it represent what the SD-1 sounds like with it’s better patches! Another note, I did have an ESQ-m patch going into the U-73 VCO input which effects the timbre somewhat. (This is a REV-E model, not all U-73′s have inputs).

“Scene: (In the year 2054) when the soloist U-73 player rehearses for a gig with a bunch of stuffy white shirt stringonauts on a space station “
