Hexagonal Pentatonic Jam

Sunday Synth Jam: An improv, centering on a pentatonic scale, using the hexagonal Axis 49 MIDI controller.

via JLMoriart:

This is an improv using mainly the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale falls in a tight block in the center of the layout making for some really fun runs and glissandi.

I’m using the “Axis Tweaker” application which converts my axis-49 into a jammer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jammer_keyboard).

Ken Rushton (aka MusicScienceGuy), who wrote the Tweaker software, is a leader in making the playing of jammers possible:
