Electronic Muse was an idea I had in my mind for a longer time. A certain sound and flow. It just didn't happen, too busy doing other things. And then I made a new synth patch. Within four days the whole album was recorded + artwork painted, out of thin air. I spent another week for mixing, a few gliss overdubs and mastering. All in all this is a pretty spontanous album in the Berlin School style.

I always make choices which instruments to use and not to use. This time it were 5 synths, both analog and digital, two combo organs and glissando (a blissful electric guitar technique) & two sequencers.

 
Blackbirds (2018)

Son of Ohm - Blackbirds 




All songs recorded live in my studio on two track. Blackbirds I played live at the ‘Electric Spectrum Experience’ June 16, 2018 in Groningen.

Normally I spend a lot of time building up an album in my studio. It is a process in which an album slowly grows and I have all my synths at hand. Not with Blackbirds. In preparation of the event 'Electric Spectrum Experience' I composed songs that can be played live with a limited setup. So I experimented with different instruments and in the end I came up with a small set which contained a Moog Sub Phatty, Nord Lead Rack, Reon Driftbox and an old Jumbo transistor combo organ. Next to that I used a Beatstep sequencer and the Gibson SG. Among the many effects there was a simple looper which enabled me to build up the track. I had several switches to lead the Nord Lead, organ or guitar to the looper. This is how I played Blackbirds in one take.
Morning Dew was done with a different setup earlier on and was all improvised. Velvet Sky was recorded in 2016 and was done with Moog, Nord Lead Rack, Farfisa organ and electric guitar.

During the many times that I played Blackbirds I had my studio window opened. In the trees outside were so many birds singing. Among them the lovely Blackbird. I think I copied some of his tunes while playing the guitar.

Syrinx (2015)



Review on Synth & Sequences by Sylvain Lupari

“Syrinx proposes a journey in the 70's with nice structures which
mix the Berlin & French Schools with an always pleasant

psychedelic vibe”
