#Endlesss

Had a rather dizzyingly early start a few mornings ago to jam with Imogen Heap via Endlesss

People : Meet Matt and Imogen…

The session was about an hour of absurd noises and some fun, it was an honour and delight to be involved …

I need to point out this was a collaborative effort, so also very much involved were: Jim Mclure, Rick Sands, and Jeremy Michael Skjevling.

Thanks to all!

Got asked, so…Setup was: OBS  collecting my 2 vid streams  (laptop and Phone cameras) and intercom audio sending via Google Meet to the very gracious Matt at Endlesss, then music via Ableton Live ‘blackhole’d‘ to the amazing @EndlesssFM Studio, synching all the audio from the UK and USA to me. My Toys were a few NI soft synths, a Microfreak, with a tokai tele and a stingray bass via GtrRig.

Thought id try to learn Ableton, but it became more about the #MicroFreak

So, Sitting around Self Isolating …
Thought id teach myself Ableton LIVE

Yep is Music for old people, buy hey IM OLD so …

Made this track using its 909 kit and an Arturia MicroFreak.
Excuse the less than inspired drum part, got lost in the Synth:+)
To make things interesting, made some rules:
All sounds from Default on the micro freak had to be made in less than 3 mins and the parts had to be played in with no edits.

45 mins later;…

By request. the no crappy beats version, you can REALLY hear the bad playing now!:+)
