Sinatra remix – Come Fly With Me

May 6, 2012

Here’s a remix of Frank Sinatra’s ‘Come fly with me’ I did for choreographer Nikki O’Hara. The dance piece it accompanies featured in the final year show at Bird College in 2011, and at the recent Move It dance festival/expo at Olympia in April 2012.

Was an interesting challenge to work with a piece of music that wasn’t recorded to a click-track. Ask me about how awesome Logic’s time-stretch functionality “Flextime” is for the full story.

I can’t embed a SoundCloud style file due to copyright issues – BORING! – so here’s an mp3 instead:

(It starts getting tasty around the 1:45 mark…)

GATE RING IS HOT!

March 10, 2010

CV RING IS HOT

…BUT TRIGGER TIP IS HOT.

Hence, I’ve had to pull the jack plug half way out of the 3.5mm adaptor, as you can see on the lowest cable below:

And same on the CV input on the Moog side – jack has to be pulled out half-way so the tip makes contact with the ring sheath:

This is reminding me a great deal of the Fry & Laurie sketch, Flushed Grollings.

But it’s cos I just bought the (surprisingly expensive) silver box above, which now connects the Moog to the computer so that I can sequence the Moog using Logic. Huzzah.

Now enjoy to the power of analogue in the mp3 below. A nothing riff really, but we get into Soulwax/LFO territory quite easily…

Note: if you are planning on this activity yourself, I’m very happy to recommend System J for the hard-to-get-hold-of “Cinch Jones 2 prong plug to 3.5mm jack cable” that is required.  (A 50/50 split on all afiliate sales, didn’t we say James? ;-)
