The Analog Roland Orchestra is a one man band (Michal Matlak) focusing on making music with “a bunch of old analog electronic instruments”.
Especially, as you might have guessed, classic Roland gear:
The reason for this is that I think they sound great and are easy to use..I am not a big fan of big software and deep menues..
As s an one man Band I am producing something between dubtechno, detroit techno, downtempo…easy listening and i like to record strange atmospheres which are sometimes used in documentaries and short films…
As the name tells you..I like and I own some nice little Roland maschines…they look cool and they are easy to use.
I also play live and its every time like a exhibition…I take some of my museum pieces on stage and programm them on the fly…together with some prepared loops and patterns comming from the mpc or octatrack..
The video features is part of Electronic Beats ‘Slices’ series. See the Orchestra site for more details about releases and tour dates.
