In part 1 I perform an extended version of "Gonna Rise Up" from the album Fear Cannot Save Us" markmosher.bandcamp.com/album/fear-cannot-save-us. For this piece, I was doing live arrangement on the Octatrack plus playing lead synth on the Waldorf Blofeld. The lead patch is an original patch from INIT using OSC2 & 3 for sync with mod wheel. The original lead patch on the album version was done with Zebra 2. To retain some of its character, I used Extreme Sample Convert to multi-sample the Zebra patch then import into the Blofeld for the source for Oscillator 1.

Rig Notes:
This set was performed only on Octatrack dynamic performance sampler with original field recordings and sonic elements from albums plus a Waldorf Blofled keyboard with original presets.

Recording Notes:
Live audio was recorded on a Zoom H2n fed by my sub-mix to house via Mackie 402VLZ3. Main footage is from a GoPro with secondary foot from my friend Chris Frain.

Visuals Notes:
The ONLY video source is from live camera input being run through layers of custom Resolume presets controlled by an Arturia Beatstep live.


Aug 11, 2015 Boulder Synthesizer Meetup: Custom Mobile Controllers with Langdon Crawford + Performing on Octatrack and Blofeld

Meetup-2015-08

I'm back from the (no)poem heartland tour which was great fun. I'll post more on the tour soon. 

Custom Mobile Controllers with Langdon Crawford

Meanwhile for you Denver/Boulder locals - I've cooked up another cool event for 317 strong member strong The Boulder Synthesizer Meetup. Come by tomorrow to see Langdon Crawford's talk. RSVP here http://www.meetup.com/The-Boulder-Synthesizer-Meetup/events/224425297

"Combining repurposed/recycled technology and low cost materials with digital synthesis, langsound (Langdon Crawford) has developed an expressive performance system for electronic music. Short musical excerpts will be used to demonstrate the controller/system. Slides and discussion will illuminate how and why it might be productive for others to think of using old mobile devices for music making."

Langdon C. Crawford is an artist and educator originally from the green mountains of Vermont. He has been developing performance/composition systems with electronics since 1999. Starting with guitars, effects and sequencers, he moved into computer music, eventually incorporating graphics and sensor controlled interaction. He has a masters of music technology from NYU. He currently teaches at FRCC and works as a freelancer based in Golden, CO.  When not teaching or traveling for work, you can find Langdon in and around the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.  More info and works can be seen at: www.langsound.com

I'll Be Performing at Meetup

I've also super psyched to perform some new arrangements of material from my most recent cinematic electronica alien invasion album "Fear Cannot Save Us" performed on Octatrack and Blofeld.
