Sunday Synth Jam: Synthesist Kebu started up a recent concert with this medley of Vangelis‘ Blade Runner Main Titles theme and his own composition, Day One.
Technical details below:
The song is performed using only analog synthesizers, either played live or sequenced.
Equipment used in this song: Arp Odyssey Mk II, Korg Micro-preset M500, Korg PE-2000, Korg Polysix, Roland Alpha Juno, Roland Juno 60, Touched-by-sound DRM1, Oberheim Matrix 6R, Yamaha RM1x (only for MIDI sequencing), Behringer DDX3216, Lexicon MPX500, as well as a midi patchbay and additional preamps for my mixer.
Reader Sebastian Teir, aka Kebu, has a new album coming out, To Jupiter And Back, that is chock-full of vintage analog action and a tribute to some of the ‘the gods of synthesis’.
We’ve featured several of Kebu’s synth jams previously, but if you’re not familiar with his work, the teaser video above offers a taste of his new album.
Here’s what he’s got to say about it:
This album is a tribute to the great synthesizer music that I grew up with of artists such as Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, and Mike Oldfield.
The album consists of music made only using vintage analog synthesizers, recorded in the old-fashioned way, using only sequencers, tape machines and analog mixers, which gives the album a very warm and organic sound.
