Sunday Synth Jam: Ghostly International co-founder and Moogfest alumni Matthew Dear visited the Moog Sound Lab where he deconstructed and then recreated the song Earthforms from his 2012 LP Beams.
Technical details below:
- Matthew Dear sings through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for a slapback effect.
- Greg Paulus plays Trumpet through an MF-104Z Analog Delay using long delay time to harken long repeating echoes of each trumpet line
- Samer Ghadry is playing the Moog Guitar through an MF-104Z Analog Delay, utilizing the Controlled Sustain mode, which allows him to sustain single strings while the strings he’s not playing are totally muted
- Ian Chang drives the song using trap-kat drum pads triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mount Editions. Ian uses the Envelope Gate switch to sustain continuous sound during parts of the song.
- Danny Scales, rounds out Earthforms with his bass guitar.
