Live Electronics Performances

For quite some time I have been performing using a combination of software and hardware synths with a Kaoss Pad effects processor in the end of the sound chain. I usually don’t have a mixer and, particularly when performing with acoustic musicians, I control the volume with a pedal.

I used to depend heavily on my Clavia MicroModular synth and Dave Smith’s Evolver synth, both great sounding and portable. However, these days I find sounds from all kinds of places and sources. I have also become more interested in live sampling over the last couple of years, i.e. recording sound material during the performance.

I am working on a virtual modular tool kit in MaxMSP and am integrating this with my new eurorack modular system – this will likely be the main sound source for upcoming electronic music.
