Prog Rock Video Song Features Face-Melting Moog Synth, Hammond Organ, Fender Guitar & iPad

Sunday Synth Jam: Multi-instrumentalist and music educator Jim McLaren unleashes a prog style synth jam video song. RAKTATAK.

Here’s what he’s got to say about it:

My first video song, an original I called RAKTATAK. What you see is what you hear, and everything you hear is seen.

Using some of my favourite instruments, this song came out of jamming on my Moog Little Phatty. Layed down the groove and added instruments – arranged with Fender Strat guitars, Fender Jazz Bass, Nord C2 Organ and Ipad Apps M3000HD and Animoog.

Drums programmed in Boom and Addictive Drums.

Is there any instrument McLaren can’t melt faces on?

  1. Wow. Sounds like the overture for a 20-min prog tale of aliens invading the Internet and thumbs-downing all the comments to stifle free speech.

    But, with a disco beat and educational notes!

    Seriously, I want to hear the rest of the composition. Well done.

  2. Thanks for the comment Velocipede! Thanks for subscribing too, more cool music to come.

    Yeah, I’m a BIT of a Prog fan – I wish there was a “rest of the composition” but this was it. Written on the piano, then transferred the main part ideas to the other instruments.

    Thanks again, and thanks to SYNTHTOPIA – LOVE Synthtopia.com!
