Live: Netaudio Megarave@Ginglik, London

See you there hopefully!

DIY Flux Capacitor Expander


This demonstration uses my crude DIY flux capacitor for the Livewire AFG, basically 5 switches and 10 jacks corresponding to the flux cap pins. Two pin pairs are attenuated by two VCA's controlled by the makenoise/wiard wogglebug, crosspatched with the malekko/wiard noisering, which drives the melodic noodling, via a A-189-1 used as a bitcrusher, to perform cheap quantizing.
The sine output is sent to an input of a makenoise QMMG, driven by the A-143-1 envelope. About halfways through, a feedback path from the animated pulses, animated by A-143-1 LFOs, into the A-106-6 xpander filter (wogglebug controlled) goes into one of the pins on the flux cap expander, resulting in strange noises and unpredictable inharmonic distortion.

Next up is a quite complex patch, demonstrating some weird possibilities open up by having access to the individual pins of the AFG flux capacitor pins. All the AFG outputs are sent to the A-152 for switching, then into a f(h) plague bearer and after that routed into flux cap expander. At the same time, a pair of flux cap pins are sent into another f(h) plauge bearer. Everything is controlled by a Wogglebug/Noisering crosspatch quantized by a A-189-1 bitcrusher.

You're listening to the currently selected waveform from the A-152. This creates highly unpredictable noises, ringings and well... listen for yourself!

Don't try this if you're not certain about what you're doing, you might destroy your AFG!

Exploring M4L & The Finger: Ax34 Suimle

Ax34 Suimle by Veqtor
First audio demo/track using Ableton Live with the Max 4 Live Beta and Tim Exile's The Finger. All control data is generated through different infinity-row generator max devices. One drum track, manipulated by two instances of The Finger. And two instrumental tracks, notes are infinity row again, one instance of The Finger on each. Loads of filtering and dynamics processing, controlled by M4L LFOs. I love this kind of over-the-top complex processing.
This track will be released on Fools Forest.

FREE: Retrospective EP - Out Now!

I'm very proud to announce the release of Retrospective EP, released by The Centrifuge, home of prestigious drill n' bass artists Neutek, Gasman, Mark Swift, Gareth Clarke and many more!
"An action packed bumper 8-track EP from Sweden's Veqtor, curator of the OXO-Unlimited netlabel and all round hardware/software demon. The release twists and turns between melodic junglism, max/msp-fuelled glitch explorations and a dirty, dub techno vibe."
Tracklisting:
  1. Tanuki Jingle
  2. 3-Aulien Caexf-9
  3. Pecking F-Key
  4. Kickuchi and Retort
  5. Room 431

Iterations - Quadraphonic piece premieres friday 15/05/09

Sorry for the short notice, I've been REALLY busy, no time to update my blog.
On friday my quadraphonic piece iterations will be played to the public on the "Ljudvågor" festival in Visby. It's a piece which I've been working for ever since I moved to here. What makes me proud of it is that I've managed to combine all my old techniques with new found ones and done things I've always wanted to try out, all in 6:42.

Just a small list of things I'm using: My modular (AFG, Z3000, A-106-1, A-106-6, A-132-3, A-143-1, A-189-1 and A-196), Reaktor (custom patches), Max/MSP (for algorithmic stuff), DtBlkFx, Ableton Live, Logic Studio (surround mixing, panning, quadraphonic reverbs etc)

I will try to find some proper medium to get it online somehow, for you to burn onto dvd-audio discs or whatever, in 5.1. Also it might be available in stereo on my upcoming release in june... =P

Eden of the East

I just finished watching the first episode of Eden of the East, a really promising new anime, written and directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: SAC, Seirei no Moribito) and produced by Production I.G. The plot pulled me in right away and the animations are extremely well done, I can hardly wait for the next episode! Here's the trailer:

Multi-touch for Max 5 and potentially Live 8



"Max Multitouch Framework by composer Mathieu Chamagne makes turning your Max patch into a multitouch interface a breeze. When I first reviewed the Lemur, I was frustrated by the hardware-style abstraction between your software and the interface. Why was I having to go through Max patches painstakingly assigning Lemur controls to Max controls - why not just make the Max controls appear on the multitouch screen? Well, that’s exactly what you get with MMF. Using a set of Max abstractions, all you have to do is build your Presentation Mode style UI and add in the MMF ingredients - it automagically becomes touchable on a variety of displays."

via Create Digital Music

This should be easily incorporateable into Live 8 I hope... Man, the future is looking bright, multi-touch, live 8 w. max for live, motu interface interfacing with my modular... I can hardly wait...

The glitch of things to come...

Just a little tease, this is done in Max/MSP... yes... it's circuit-bending samples:

A-143-1 sequencing AFG in Antimatter Universe 2.4

I've been playing around with the antimatter jumpers on my AFG and came up with this with the jumpers set to 2 and 4.
It's being sequenced by two of the comparators of the A-143-1, going into the FM inputs.
The LFO's on the A-143-1 are modulating loads of parameters. AFG subsaw ringmodulated by AFG animated pulses go into the HP in of A-106-1 while pulse out goes into LP in. Animated saws FM A-106-1 frequency. Makes you long for the flux capacitor expansion... I might make one myself...

Snowflakes

Composed using Per Nørgård's fractal infinity series:
a(2n) = -a(n), a(2n+1) = a(n) + 1, a(0)=0.
Every four notes in the primary voice, the modus is transposed into a neighbouring one.
It was made using Max/MSP, the Modal Objects Library by Vince Manzo and Fredrik Olofsson's f0.noergaard external. Sonically the voices are performed by Vember Audio's Surge. The glitch noises are from DEVSND's Arp 2600 and Bent 808 libraries, processed by DtBlkFx, Buffer Override and Reaktor.
Tempo is 120<=>180

Veqtor @ Klubb Adrenlin 2009-02-07


As you probably noticed, my previous gig at Klubb Adrenalin was unfortunatly cancelled, but organisers have now found a new venue and things are back on track. One thing has changed though, you need to send an e-mail or join the facebook group to be able to attend. Cya there!

Hobnox Audiotool: Feedback


Having nothing to do I opened up Hobnox's Audiotool, which is kind of like a modular version of rebirth, running in most browsers, using flash. What I discovered through experimentation was quite fun, you can do feedback loops through the tb-303 if you have delays in the loop. The results are, unpredictable, filthy and awesome.

More Tim Exile!

Tim Exile, known from my previous post, uploaded a few more videos, this time he's playing live with the Elbipolis baroque orchestra. Some elements of the players are being remixed and he's also adding electronic sounds:


His new album is coming out on Warp and Planet Mu (!) on the 19th of march. Here is the tracklisting with some samples courtesy of Planet Mu:

1. Don't Think We're One
2. Family Galaxy
3. Fortress
4. There's Nothing Left Of Me But Her And This
5. Pay Tomorrow
6. Bad Dust
7. Carouselle
8. When Every Day Is A Number
9. Listening Tree
10. I Saw The Weak Hand Fall

Perhaps some of the most mind-boggling and interesting music out there right now...
