Hi! I’m thrilled to share with you this brand new music video for my song “Expect the unexpected”.
This song will be part of my new LP “BRIGHTER” who will be out the 11th of June 2021 on the french label Bruit Blanc.
“This song is a declaration of love to unpredictability in life. Those big or small things that weren’t planned but happen still, that shape us, make us happy or sad sometimes. I think that nothing is set in stone, and that everything was born out of an unexplainable chaos. This actually soothes me, despite obstacles in life we can still try to shake things up.
This is what I wanted to say with those 5 intertwined guitar notes. I’ve never been very good with words, I feel more comfortable with my melodies.”
Everything is explained in French, but basically this upgrade is 4 notes polyphonic & brings note length recording, which is awesome. This one is made with a Arduino Mega though, because the Nano doesn’t have enough space to store all the notes available.
I also use the new YES? NO? MAYBE? module a lot in this stream.
This is something new for me but I’m really excited to make new things like this on Twitch and I have TONS of ideas of things to code with the IRC chat feature (like offering the ability of the people who watch the stream to interact with the music … !!!)
I will talk more about those Twitch thingies soon. Feel free to follow my channel in order to receive notification when I go live.
I upgraded my “Wandering” concept by adding some generative video projection. Something I’m working on with Max4Live on Ableton.
I added also a second camera, BUT it only recorded 3 minutes because … I forgot to clean up the SD card … Whatever, the first 3 minutes got a wonderful double camera montage, haha. This will be better the next time. Always!
I just finished this video explaining what this MIDI looper / sequencer does. I couldn’t explained all of the features in the video, so there’s a complete page dedicated to this project in the DIY SYNTHS section.
I’m really happy with this looper / sequencer, cause it helps me to improvise music without turning on my computer, and also recording/changing the notes on the go is a very pleasant way to work on note sequences.
I’ve tons of ideas about a next version of this magic box … Adding a screen for displaying values and offers more parameters to tweak, adding a SD card in order to save real patterns in order to make songs … like a MPC maybe?
What’s next? Maybe a MIDI pedal (I really need it) or a DIY synth module for random trig generation (I will need to build a new case first …)
