“Abstraxa – exploring the outer reaches, using the Buchla Electronic Music Box
The six compositions featured on Abstraxa were realised on a Buchla modular synthesiser. Donald Buchla began makng electronic musical instruments in 1963, developing the first Buchla 100 series systems in conjunction with the San Francisco Tape Music Center. These first inventions coincided with the development of Robert Moog’s 900 Series modular systems over on the west coast of america, and as such belong to the very first generation of commercially available synthesisers. One intersting aspect is that Don Buchla is still developing and manufacturing his modular systems, using the same module format (now 200e series) that he introduced 50 years ago. The current 200e modules utilise a combination of analogue and digital components
The Buchla has a very unique way of producing sound, using electronic voltages to control the sound sources (oscillators and noise generators), sound modifiers (gates, filters, phase shifters, modulators, etc) and event timing generators (sequencers, random sources, pulse generators, etc). Systems can be built up from the available modules to suit the needs of the composer. The power of the system lies in the inter-modulation capabilities. This means that extremely deep patches can be set up with a myriad of connections interacting together in complex ways to produce evolving and self-generating soundscapes. It is anagolous to working with a living organism as opposed to a static machine, a brain rather than a computer
The pieces presented here were recorded to tape using overdubbing in places. Additional reverberation and delay lines were also incorporated into the system. See below for a full module list
Buchla 200e Electronic Music Box:
225e Midi Decoder (digital interface and preset manager)
227e System Interface (various audio mixing and panning functions)
251e Quad Sequential Voltage Source
255 CV Processor (octal slew and voltage source)
261e Complex Waveform Generator (dual digital VCO)
266e Source of Uncertainty (complex random and noise functions)
281e Quad Function Generator (quad LFO / envelope)
291e Triple Morphing Filter (three bandpass filters / VCAs plus sequencer)
292e Quad Dynamics Manager (four Vactrol lowpass gates)
077 (Eardrill) Pendulum / Ratchet (complex triggers and clock dividers)
254v (Verbos) Quad Voltage Processor
258v (Verbos) Dual Oscillator (clone of the 1970s Buchla analog VCO)
Boss DD3 Delay Unit (mono)
Ace Tone MP4 Spring Reverb (mono)

Quite fascinating videos with some nice synth sounds, enjoy
Jacob 2-2 is a Brooklyn-based sound and video artist who takes his name from an obscure, late-70s movie about a fearless kid investigator. “It’s probably one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen,” says the producer, whose first name is David but who prefers not to give his last name. It makes total sense when you listen to his music: there’s a kid-like wonder to it, crossed with a dose of playful humor and an bunch of weird 80s synths. It’s a lot like Look Around You condensed into musical form.
David’s prized possession is an old Roland Juno 6. That particular Juno has no presets at all, so every time he gets something he likes he has to record it immediately. “I always think to myself, ‘I’d better record it now or else I’ll never be able to recreate it.’” Its warm sound in turn drives his beats and effects, filled with pings and blips that could be straight from any 80s video game. Sometimes his beats are muffled, while at other times they shine through clearly.
So far, David has put out three EPs, two self-released through his Bandcamp: (The Gifted Child and Cabazon). His most recent EP, Fantasiarexia, was picked up by Jakub Alexander of Moodgadget. He’s also had a couple compilation releases and a handful of remixes for Aleph, Starfawn, Macka and others. (You can listen to all of them on his SoundCloud page.) A motion graphic designer by trade, David also makes his own videos for his live show, performing against a background of material loosely cut together to his music and full of weird and wonderful nostalgia and color.

Sex, dirt, deterioration, destruction, fashion and arts, humankind in all its facets and the longing for the extreme: Formalin’s music is direct, forceful and hard – a sound that excellently depicts the real life in their hometown of Berlin as well as the inner abyss of the human soul – with all the subsequent extremes and emotions.
Formalin takes the listener into a dark, postapocalyptic world full of destruction and decay. One cannot help to admire with how much passion the duo has worked on every minute detail to optimize and focus the characteristic and extreme sound. A process that the many live concerts the band has played in the past years have helped to perfect. And on stage, the project unfolds its full conceptual glory and channels the rocking energy inherent in the songs perfectly.
