VMD04: Don Hassler - No Subsequent Interference
Sound source EMS Synthi A MK1.
These are pieces made by configuring the instrument to operate on its own. Once an interesting and satisfying pattern emerges and is identified, it is recorded, unmodified, to Protools. I believe limiting the elements allows the work to exist uncontaminated, revealing the sonically rich and organic nature of the Synthi itself. The compositional process is more similar to photography, it more about discovery than creation.
