“Tonalities from Orbit #3” is a video recording of a live interactive soundscape and visual improvisation performed at the Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup October 12th, 2016 at Globe Hall in Denver. It’s performed using only a Nord Lead 4 with custom patches from INIT and Resolume using live camera input with no pre-recorded sequences.
The theme of this meetup was “The Sound of 50’s SciFi: Theremins and Circuits” where Victoria Lundy did a lecture on Thereminist Sam Hoffman who’s work is synonymous with the iconic SciFi sound. I did a talk on the work of Louis and Bebe Barron to create electronic tonalities for the groundbreaking film “Forbidden Planet”.
After the lectures, Victoria and I each did a performance illustrating some ideas from the talk. In this video I’m using the Nord Lead 4 to to channel the Krell.
