ORBITAL – Electronic Music Innovators @ Decibel Festival

All the details below:

More info: http://bit.ly/QPH9Xe
At this year’s Decibel Festival in Seattle, we had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Phil Hartnoll of Orbital, one of the most influential dance music groups of the last twenty-five years. The Grammy Award-winning duo consists of Phil and his brother Paul, both originally from Sevenoaks, England, and they began releasing critically and commercially successful dance singles and albums in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In this video interview, Phil Hartnoll talks about their early beginnings and individual musical influences (including Kraftwerk, English rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple, classic Motown soul records from the US, film scores, and Jamaican ska, reggae and dub), their connection with musical contemporaries The Prodigy and Underworld (who were playing similar acid house and rave club gigs back in the day), the origin of the torch glasses, constantly refining their live setup, using the TR-909 vintage analog drum machine and the Ableton Live controller Griid, the importance of improvisation and playfulness in electronic music performances and sets, and most of all, staying true to oneself and not getting caught up in hype.

We talked to Orbital in the Moog Sound Lab about the sounds they crafted for the new special edition white Moog Slim Phatty Analog Synthesizer.

Audiobus Demo at the London Mobile Music Makers meet

What’s the difference between Audiobus and Virtual MIDI?

Virtual MIDI is a local communications channel for passing around MIDI messages like “C# 1, Velocity 127“, or “Modulation, 50” – simple messages that control how a synthesizer should generate audio. Audiobus is a communications channel for sending live audio, like the audible output of a synthesizer app, or the output of a guitar amp effects app, for example.
