In addition to composing and producing music, I also do sound design work which I release on the microsite http://patchlab.modulatethis.com. This work can take many forms including creating programs or “patches” for synthesizers which I release in libraries or soundsets. December was a busy month and I release three soundsets.
Outpost:Airlock for U-HE Zebralette Synthesizer
First off is OUTPOST: AIRLOCK – a soundset made up of patches for U-HE's free freeware synthesizer Zebralette. The patches will also load into Zebra 2. This themed soundset picks up where “Sounds from a Distant Outpost” soundset left off (which has been downloaded over 2500 times to date) and again takes place at the fictional dark and distant “outpost”. This outpost exists in the same “signals universe” as my two albums REBOOT and I HEAR YOUR SIGNALS. The 12 patches in this soundset will help artists experience the journey through the airlock which connects the outer ring of the outpost to the first inner chamber. You might hear creatures along the way so stay alert.
Zebra Attack Rack! Part I & Part II for Ableton Live
Next is a set of two soundsets I did in collaboration with NY artist AfroDJMac who's been "crushing it" by releasing an Ableton Live Pack every week for 37 weeks! We collaborated remotely using email, Skype, Dropbox, and sharing content via Ableton Live sets.
