Chilled Dawless Synth Jam With Elektron Digitakt, Waldorf Blofeld, Dreadbox Typhon & Novation Circuit Tracks

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via French synthesist and producer Guillaume Blanjean (Atlas Castle), captures a live, chilled dawless synth jam, featuring Elektron Digitakt, Waldorf Blofeld, Dreadbox Typhon & Novation Circuit Tracks.

Blanjean uses the Digitakt as the ‘brain’ of his system, which looks like it’s about to be overgrown the greenery that masks his system’s cabling. His system is pretty compact, but makes effective use of some affordable, but powerful, gear.

Blanjean created this performance as part of a hardware_jams challenge, which was to create a jam involving repeating elements, inspired by this quote from Rudolf Steiner, “One can ascend to a higher development, only by bringing rhythm and repetition into one’s life.”

  1. Nice! Speaking of Steiner (who I have mixed feelings about), according to wikipedia, some Steiner churches have quarter-tone organs. I’d love to see one, anyone got a clip?

  2. Interesting choice of inspiration. Another, albeit less popular quote of Steiner: „But those people who had developed their I-being too little, who were too exposed to the effects of the sun, they were like plants: they deposited too many carbonaceous components under their skin and became black. That is why the Negroes are black.“

    1. Right, that’s one reason that I politely said “mixed feelings”.
      But I think you’re based in Germany, and I thought Weleda etc was really popular, and Steiner was thought of as some kind of creative inspiration. Is it actually polarized? Was always curious about that.
