Our goal is that you can confidently make your own first patch after that …and have a good time.

Although we are nerds we won’t get too technical. Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques as well as tell you some anecdotes about the history of (modular) synths and gossip about the Eurocrack scene.

Workshop / Performance with Richard Scott Thursday 26th

Richard-Scott-in-red-1

Up next at Schneidersladen: this month, on Thursday the 26th at 6 pm  we have invited Richard Scott to talk about his improvisation technique on the Eurorack Modular Synth. Please save the date for a bunch of fun and some insight on patching and live performance.

 

Richard Scott is a free improvising musician and electroacoustic composer working with electronics including modular synthesizers and controllers such as the Buchla Thunder and Lightning and his own self-designed WiGi infrared controller. He has been composing and performing for over 25 years, recently working with Evan Parker, Jon Rose, Richard Barrett, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Shelley Hirsch, Ute Wasserman, Michael Vorfeld, Frank Gratkowski and his own Lightning Ensemble. He studied free improvisation with John Stevens, saxophone with Elton Dean and Steve Lacy, and electroacoustic composition with David Berezan and Ricardo Climent. He has released many albums, for example with Grutronic and Evan Parker for PSI records, The Magnificence of Stereo (sruti BOX) and has a solo double modular synthesizer LP, Several Circles, and an album with Sidsel Endreson, Debris in Lower Earth Orbit, both released by CUSP Editions in 2016. He is involved with several concert series in Berlin: Basic Electricity, AUXXX, Klangkeller and Sound Anatomy

 

Richard will perform two pieces on his suitcase modular and discuss the nature of improvisation and performance with a modular synthesizer. He will talk about his own history using analogue and digital tools in performance. Issues such as control, randomness and interface and the problems of deigning a small portable but extremely flexible modular, developing an individual aesthetic and the nature of musical time, the cosmos and the meaning of life may well be discussed!

Entry will cost 6-12 Euros

starts around 6 pm

firmware upgrades – Octocontroller & Tempi

Even good digital modules do need firmware upgrades from time to time, either for bugfixing or for implementing new functions. Here’s two recent updates:

  • Abstract Data’s ADE-32 Octocontroller will receive an update soon, CLICK HERE to see the newest manual showing the firmware update procedure.
    Justim from AD says: “The upgrade is free and optional – the only 2x bug fixes are both pretty obscure but I am hoping it’ll be popular (and worth the time/cost of development!). To upgrade – customers will need to purchase a standard 5V USB to FTDI cable. This is the same cable that is now used by some of the Arduino boards, Raspbery Pi, Beagle etc. It’ll be used for all future Abstract Data digital modules and it’s also the system being used by Soulsby Synths. They are available through places like Mouser, Digikey, Sparkfun, etc.”
  • Make Noise’s Tempi’s new firmware “tempi11″ makes External SYNC and RUN/ STOP behaviors even better.
    Download the zip file HERE. Everything you need to do the update is included in this download. File, instructions, descriptions, contact info in case you have troubles.

April, 28th – on Thursday Special Workshop:

WorkshopDear modularists,

for this month’s special workshop we do have a very very special guest: Acclaimed artist (and also regular customer) Joey Blush aka Blush Response will tell us how he got into modular. As everybody develops over time his own approach with modular synths we think it is most interesting to hear from a real expert how he programs patches, integrates external gear, prepares for a live set.

To tune in already here’s a links to his work: https://soundcloud.com/blush-response  – and to an interview: http://createdigitalmusic.com/2016/04/here-are-3-epic-performances-on-modular-that-arent-noodling/  – Over the last years Joey collected an immense experience which he will share with us.

This Thursday April 28th at 6pm in our showroom (at Kotti above Kaisers) – Number of participants is limited to 15 guests. For your registration please confirm to Thomas via tc@schneidersladen.de.

See you!  .. the schneidersladen showroom team.
