This is an original composition, played live on the Eigenharp Alpha and looped for some parts.

“It uses a single sound on my Moog Slim Phatty for all the sections of the song. This one of the challenges that I’ve been setting for myself. I want to create only a few very expressive and versatile sounds that I perfectly learn to play on the Eigenharp in all their nuances, as opposed an arsenal of thousands of sounds that are totally unconnected from myself.
Here I’m driving the Slim Phatty over Control Voltage, giving me an incredibly detailed connection to the expression of the sound. This is possible thanks to the Expert Sleepers ES-3 module which converts the data from the Eigenharp over digital ADAT audio to Direct Current.
Pressure on the keys is tied to volume, left-right movement to filter cutoff and up-down movement to pitch. I’m additionally controlling distortion through the breath pipe of the Alpha and delay feedback through its strip controller, both are AudioUnit effects from Rob Papen. The looping is done through Mobius and is controlled through a Rig Kontrol USB MIDI footpedal.”
(Shot with an iPhone) but this is the opening segment of alva noto’s (carsten nicolai) spectacular live performance of univrs (uniscope version) in the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal May 4th. The artist had mirrors installed on either side of the projection wall in the already very wide chamber resulting in a very convincing display of visuals to infinity. Derivative’s Markus Heckmann has worked closely with Nicolai over the last 3 years to produce the performance visuals in TouchDesigner. The ‘uniscope version’ of univrs is the most refined and mind-blowing rendition of the work yet.
DJ Zinkus speaks about his own vision of EDM Live performance at events and makes live performance demo of personally designed music control panel on iPad (Lemur).
Michigan based, Ghostly International co-founder and Moogfest alumni Matthew Dear visited the Moog Sound Lab where he completely deconstructed and then recreated the song “Earthforms” from his 2012 LP “Beams”
Matthew Dear sings through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for a slapback effect.
Greg Paulus plays Trumpet through an MF-104Z Analog Delay using long delay time to harken long repeating echoes of each trumpet line
Samer Ghadry is playing the Moog Guitar through an MF-104Z Analog Delay, utilizing the Controlled Sustain mode, which allows him to sustain single strings while the strings he’s not playing are totally muted
Ian Chang drives the song using trap-kat drum pads triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mount Editions. Ian uses the Envelope Gate switch to sustain continuous sound during parts of the song.
Danny Scales, rounds out Earthforms with his bass guitar.

Download this Lemur template for free at Liine.net, including the Ableton Live Session: http://liine.net/en/products/lemur/premium/rheyne-jammer/
A performance using the new “RheyneJammer” Lemur template, demonstrating how live looping can be mixed with the included instruments and audio clips. This video is part of a longer video on Liine’s YouTube channel which contains a tutorial on the template. The full version of the video can be seen here: http://youtu.be/-_ax_BQxPTw
The template is a combination of live looping with the included Ableton instruments as well as an audio input. In addition, there is a page dedicated to a new live jam never heard on YouTube or SoundCloud, which can be remixed with the included Ableton instruments. Everything, as well as the instruments, have already been mapped to the included Ableton Live Session. Audio input will be enabled as long as you have an audio interface with a line-in.
The only software requirements for this to work is Lemur on an iPad and the full version of Ableton Live. Wifi or wired MIDI is required to connect the iPad to a computer.
Live performance duel featuring a grid of squares that come from the monome and Ableton Live; as well as the Akai MPC and effects pedals.

Background video description:
Recorded / improvised with my Roland CR-68 (Compu Rhythm) on minimal setting.
From the Polymoog I had the direct output and resonator outputs fed into my Behringer mixer while the VCF output was fed into my Ibanez UE 305 with Analog Chorus,Delay and Compressor all engaged and output back into my cruddy mixer.
I was obviously tweaking the sound in spots… Most notably the VCF Cutoff and sometimes S/H rate etc. Towards the end, or somewhere in the middle I brought down the release for a more plucky sound while the lower half of the Polymoog had a bit more sustain… Unfortunately I recorded this to digital (Tascam DP01FX) It sounded much nicer through my Tascam 688 Cassette 8-track but then I couldn’t transfer it to this media from there. Also, my Polymoog is only offering out Square waves at this time or else it would have sounded even way more complex and OTHERWORLDLY!!!
I have a feeling the Blondie and Gary Numan mostly used just Squarewaves anyway for their string sound… Though ealy 70′s Ultravox relied more heavily on the deeper and fat sounding Polymoog sawtooth waveforms…
