Reader Patrik K. Book (aka Düsseldorf by Night) shares his New Year’s wishes for Synthtopia readers:
I am an avid reader of Synthtopia and I find your posts during the year very inspiring to me as an electronic music maker.
Here is a short video that I made wishing a happy new year to you guys at Synthtopia and all the Synthtopia readers.
The video features live improvised experimental electronica that Book makes under the name DbN (Düsseldorf by Night).
For his performances, Book looks for cassette tapes in the city where he is performing and then samples, manipulates and processes the old tapes, using granular synthesis and other techniques, to create rhythmical structures, noises and drones.
