Analog Synthesis 101

Professor McConnell awaiting students for his first analog synthesis class.

Some kids go to summer school to catch up or get ahead on math, english, etc.  Some kids skip summer school and hit the pool.  Some even go to band camp.  Now "bandos" can learn a little about analog synthesis.

P.S.  This is a fictional post.  However, watch out for classes forming soon...

Deadhead & Weed

No, I'm not talking about "Chocolate Chip" Garcia's Grateful Dead or one of his favorite past times.  I'm talking about one of the toils of being a new homeowner.  Instead of scoring music for Cleric, I had to take the night off to deadhead flowers and weed around my house.  Certainly not a favorite new chore.

Hey, what's that sticking out through the lattice work by the deck?  Looks like a dandelion leaf.  Maybe this post was about Jerry Garcia's favorite past time after all...

Analog Noize

MC2P4 adding some analog wind noize (not a typo) from a Korg MS-10 at FFS II to the scene we're scoring for Cleric.  

I was trying to coax some noize from a Korg DW-8000 but I could only get "digital noise".  It didn't cut it for the scene so P4 stepped in and created the "analog noize".

What should we use next?  Some Minimoog?  A little Theremin?

Keyboard Stands

Last night, after working on music for the film Cleric, P4 and I set up keyboard stands and black lights.  Pictured is one of two areas dedicated to keyboards.  They look so lonely sitting there anxiously awaiting their guests.  If you listen closely enough, you can hear them bickering over which stand will get which synthesizer.  Quite disturbing...
