Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures some improvisation from John L Rice that explores the idea of incorporating your body into a modular synth patch- or at least using it as a sound source within a patch.
It may look a little funny – but there’s a clear interaction between Rice’s physical movements and the modular’s output that results in expressive sounds.
Technical details below.
This is just two modules, a Modcan Vocoder 71B and a Synth Tech MOTM-101 noise source. The EV dynamic mic goes through a Shure mic pre and then to the vocoder, along with some pink noise. Having the speakers up a bit was causing some feedback that helped produce some of the sustain and depth.
Thanks for watching and commenting.
