"Exchanges" - (19 Meg mp3)
by Lynner & Webster (available soon on neatnoise and thiaMedia)

Doug Lynner and Cynthia Webster create Spirited Electronic Soundscapes combining Serge, Modcan, and Cyndustries analog modular synthesizers, with haunting flute and soaring electric guitar solos.

Common clock and analog fluctuating signals were passed back and forth between machines to keep them like, on the same "wavelength".

The fruits of a three-day combination barbeque and recording session!

"Musings on Hoovers" by Cynthia

This is done in one evening entirely on a Modcan & Cynthia Modular Synthesizer system with vacuum cleaner accompaniment. Three sound layers were combined and edited on a Mac using FeltTip's Sound Studio software and is comprised of recording two live synthesizer takes onto mini-disc, each using very large patches with complete patch tear-downs between takes.

ThiamediaSome 26 oscillators of various types were all tuned into one massive harmonic chord structure, and then groups of these were isolated into several separate voices with their own filters, crossfaders, and effects, (18 of these oscillator drones were supplied by three Super Psycho Modules)

The first take was of the overall harmonic structure ringing in and out of harmony as all of the voices come in and out in numerous combinations.

The second patch features the double-tracked, "Hendrix like" knob solo on Synthacon filter, (sound a bit like like Fripp playing an electric guitar) along with some voices that were designed specifically to contrast with the sound of the original take.

Lastly a layer was added of a craftsman Shop Vac recorded in my kitchen with a PZM mic positioned on top of the stove.

 "Glance" by Steve Martin

Gear : Small Modcan/Cynthia Modular with 2 Wiard Joysticks

Additional info : Glance was recorded in one pass (20 mins) then edited to the required length. No keyboards or sequencers were used, and the only filter used was a Cynthia Low Pass Gates module.

"adanaC beta" by Rikard Latvala (6.1 Meg mp3)

"All the independent tracks where made by Bruce Duncan of Modcan. They are actually not meant to be tracked together like this, since these are actually the short demos found on the Modcan Website."

"I was only in the mood to do a track out of his demos .. I downloaded all the demos from his home page and started processing them individually. In the end I had a lot of tracks that I put together to make up the song you heard .. I did a lot of timestreching on all tracks to get them to go together .. The song even features Bruce´s voice, tho it is very much processed and can not directly be heard (It is in the end of the song). Maybe you can hear it if you speed up the song =)."

"COSMIC SPACES - MILKY WAY" by Ricardo Roman featuring the Cynthia Gated Comparator (1.4 Meg MPGA). Patch sheet for this composition available HERE.
