In the EMS#2 - EMS#4 I will give room for Swedish classic and contemporary electroacoustic composers.
And the way they work.
Imho, if you have an interest in electronic music, or to broaden your scope, I think these broadcastings
can be an add on. In knowledge about synthesis and composition.
If you don't like this topic, just don't watch.
I think it is a bit lame, insipid to criticise this.
You know me for my research in synthesis and historical consciousness.

Modular is Modular regardless of the platform.
An example is my purchase of Zebra2 HZ w/ Diva Filters.
I never really cared for the Native synth sound, especially the FX drenched ones that are so common.
But it is Modular, and what I learned from all Modular guys here is what modules can do with other modules, and the abstract, familiar even unconventional ways sound can be manipulated.

We can never master music or synthesis, only look back at how far we have come.
Which is why new methods are exciting, especially from people who make a living at it...

Thanks and pay no attention to the guys in the Peanut Gallery.

Kyma meets Buchla

On February 25, composer/synthesis-researcher Roland Kuit will be broadcasting live and in stereo from EMS in Stockholm for the Dutch Concertzender Radio, demonstrating his work with Kyma and the Buchla 200 interacting with each other in EMS Studio 4.

At the heart of these compositions are the Kyma algorithms that Kuit uses to frequency-modulate the Buchla Complex Waveform Generator Model 259 which, in turn, is used as trigger function for the Sequential Voltage Source Model 243, thus exploring the intriguing area that lies between note triggers and wavetables. This sequential control voltage is controlling a second Complex Waveform Generator Model 259. And the audio of this Waveform Generator is used as the carrier for the 285e Frequency Shifter / Balanced Modulator. The 266e Source of Uncertainty modulates a third Complex Waveform Generator Model 259 and is used as modulation signal for the Balanced Modulator which is fed through 296e Spectral Processor for filtering. Finally the loop is closed by routing these algorithmic audio ‘sentences’ back to Kyma for Ring Modulation and quadraphonic placement.

Kuit is a frequent guest on the Concertzender where he’s often called in as a modular synthesis expert to explain various synthesis algorithms or to discuss music by some of the pioneers of electronic music.

EMS#1 will stream live on 25 February after which it will be available as a podcast from the Concertzender archive.

Sure is fun playing synths all of the time 'eh...?

Congrats RK
