Ninstrument’s Chris Blarsky shared this Blade Runner-inspired modular synth jam, “He say you Braidrunna!”.
Rather than taking inspiration from the more obvious musical themes of Blade Runner, Blarsky explores atmospheric territory similar to the pervasive electronic ambiences of the Vangelis score.
“Why is it every time I watch that movie I can’t seem to get it out of my head for days?,” asks Blarsky. “That background atmosphere just seems to bounce around in my skull as if I was in a constant trance. Seemed the only way to get it out of my head was to give it a go with some Eurorack modules.”
Here’s what he has to say about the technical details:
Mi Elements run through a Grendel Formant filter modulated by bubblesound uLFO. E350 Morphing Terrarium run through Korg MKP2s set on tape Echo.
Speak & Read run through a ZDSP with Halls of Valhalla cart. The over all pumping sound is a MI Braids with a AD Sequencer 1 controlling pitch.
The Sequencer 1 also controls pitch of e350 and the Elements.
