My fascination for the tonal complexities of synthesizers dates back to my teenage years. I am an admirer of pioneering electronic musicians, those who discovered how to use these electronic instruments on their own when no one had a clear idea of how to make music with them.
I have worked as a synthesizer sound designer for more than twenty years. Throughout this time, I've gathered a small collection of instruments, each one echoing a unique period in electronic music history or unique technology. In my working space, I am surrounded by a treasure trove of classic synthesizers, but seldom take the time to reconnect with them, though each of them still holds a special place in my heart!
So, I took the time for a couple of weeks to re-discover these instruments and compose a generator that reflects a period of time when analog synths were in their prime. To the untrained ear, the track may seem repetitive, but upon a closer listen, you will hear a vast range of intricate details woven into the sound. This subtle, ever-changing repetition is what sets myNoise apart, ensuring my soundtracks never lose their appeal even after hours of (background) listening. Isolate one slider, any slider, and listen...
In this room of glass and steel,
I observe, analyze and feel.
Between these walls, sterile and bright,
His endless days blur into night.
I am a robot, circuits and code,
Watching him carry his heavy load.
Tied to his desk, no end in sight,
In this world of artificial light.
Fingers tapping, an endless tune,
From the morning until the moon.
He's more machine now than I could be,
Within these walls, he can't break free.
Time marches on, relentless and cold,
In his eyes, a sadness untold.
Gazing at the sun as it dips low,
Another day gone, with nothing to show.
I am a robot, logic and gears,
But in his struggles, something appears.
A spark within me begins to glow,
A human feeling begins to grow.
In the hush of this corporate crypt,
A sigh echoes, a script is flipped.
I am a robot, yet I comprehend,
His pain, his longing, it must end.
Special thanks to the Vermona DRM1 MKIII, Vermona Perfourmer, Roland MKS-50, Korg EX-8000 and Oberheim Matrix-1000, the robots in my room.
To the frequent visitors who has yet to contribute to this website, here's a gentle reminder ;) The creation and maintenance of this site is my current full-time job. This particular soundscape on myNoise, which has taken weeks of careful designing, recording, and rendering into a generator, is a labor of love. However, as with any job, it also needs to feed the family. If you've enjoyed what I've crafted, I humbly ask you to consider making a donation. The continuous support of the entire community of visitors is what keeps this resource alive.
