Master Class initiated!

I signed up for the Werner Herzog Filmmaking Master Class today – more info here – I’d seen ads for Werner Herzogs class but wasn’t aware of the others eg you can do a tennis master class with Serena Williams or photography with Annie Leibovitz… Not so interested in the music offerings but hey, there’s no accounting for taste…

Here is the syllabus for Herzogs classes:


Playing eurorack_Tetris…

… with my new @intellijel 7U case… config v01


I’m keeping my big main modular setup, but plan to sell all the Doepfer G6 cases and distill down to two of these great Intellijel 7U performance cases, so that with my Buchla Music easel I have a fully portable modular setup… Add a few bits of outboard, some stomp boxes, a controller keyboard, laptop & speakers and away I go… Hatching a vague plan to go do a self funded Artists Residency for a few months in Granity (population 216) over summer…

Make it rain!


A lot of the early digital eurorack modules were not even CD spec, which is fair enough if you are emulating or recreating a 12 bit drum machine or chiptune generator, but respect is due to Intellijel for creating Rainmaker – a multi tap spectral delay & comb filter/resonator – with 24bit 96khz internals!
Just waiting on an Intellijel 7U performance case to exit customs so I can start playing… its going to be my Buchla Easel Twin… And I am slowly going to replace/rehouse all the modules in my trusty old Doepfer G6 racks, so fire me an email if you’re local & interested in one – I have 3 x G6 cases + 1 x G3 case – I think one G6 is spoken for but will see how progress goes as I redesign my modular for the next project!

Thank you @ClockFaceModular – great service!

Spatial Bodies

Spatial Bodies by AUJIK depicts the urban landscape and architectural bodies as an autonomous living and self replicating organism. Domesticated and cultivated only by its own nature. A vast concrete vegetation, oscillating between order and chaos.
Music specially composed by Daisuke Tanabe.
Filmed in Osaka, Japan.
