For those who may be wondering about the name, Ondes is French for “waves.”  But if you know a little something about the history of electronic music, you might also recognize the word.  The Ondes Martenot is an early electronic instrument with a sound not dissimilar to that of the more widely known Theremin.  Unlike the Theremin, which is played by moving your hands in space, the Ondes Martenot has a keyboard and a sliding ring which allows the player to glide between pitches.  Below each key is a little indentation for the finger to stop on.  These indentations allow for precise pitch intonation, something that is neary impossible to acheive on the Theremin.  (Unless, of course, your name is Clara Rockmore).   Because several 20th century composers (notably Olivier Messiaen) composed for the instrument, the Ondes Martenot is still taught in some music conservatories to this day, though it’s a bit expensive to get a hold of one yourself.  You might also have seen Jonny Greenwood performing one in Radiohead.

Daft Punk’s Around the world performed on an iPad

August 2, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Cover of Daft Punk’s theme “Around the world”, performed and recorded entirely on iPad using Caustic 3 app.

Original video and audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9Msz…

The instruments used were: two beatboxes for the drums and claps (default preset “Drums”, slightly tweaked), four subsynths (bass, vibes, synth and noise effect), one vocoder, one kssynth and one fmsynth for guitars. Some effects and lots of automation.

I included the music video as background of the audio for reference and to show the precise timing. Sorry for the bad quality of the image.
