Pentacle Soundsystem

This week I started with a residency at STEIM in Amsterdam. The 15.3 Pentacle soundsystem developed by Fedde Ten Berge is installed here and I’m going to prepare a live performance for it. I’m really amazed by working with a powerful multispeaker soundsystem like this, the amplification is on par with soundsystems installed in clubs. It is also very intuitive in its use.

Zielensoep, Zaandam

There was this nice gathering of people, music making machines and soup. You can find some musical evidence here on Bandcamp if you need. My own performance is under the monniker of Rowe.

 

Timetosser / modular demo video

Recently I got an invitation from Tim Walther to come over with my modular and make a demovideo with the Timetosser he developed. This device matches perfectly with the beats I normally make.
In short, it is a delay device with a delay comparable to the one in the Elektron Octatrack, but obviously more compact and in my opinion more intuitive and flexible. It needs some learning, but this the results make it worth while.
I hope that I can integrate it into my live performance setup.
