Greek synthesist Kostadis Michail shared this playlist of live performances that explore a different way of using the Elektron Model:Samples.
While Elektron markets the Model:Samples as a sampling drum machine, Michail uses it more as a platform for live musique concrète performance.
Here’s what Michail shared about the technical details:
“Electronic pad Nord Drum 2 triggers (by midi) the Model Samples working as multi-sampler (field recordings, voices, cassette tapes, ambient).
The velocity of pad controls the starting point of any sample you have on 6 tracks of Model Samples.
This live performance was recorded by Kostadis Michail at studio Victoria in the 14th of March 2023.”
Michail has been active in the Athens music scene in various bands, including In Trance 95, Acid Baby Jesus, Sclavos & Lost Bodies. Michail’s latest Kostadis release, is available on Bandcamp.
