Minimalist Modular Music

Ever since a thread appeared on MW Forum titled ‘I love modulars, but I don’t love modular music’ I’ve started stashing videos of modular synth music that i actually DO like, a few of which I’ve posted below.

And there are plenty that simply come down to taste – too much chaos and I lose interest.
My favorite musician quote is by Charles Mingus “Anyone can make the simple complicated, creativity is about making the complicated simple’ and while we all know ‘simple’ is rarely simple, I suspect restraint is less often a technical issue than an aesthetic one: more is often easier than less, but to me clever evocative use of less is something to aspire to…
