Mister Sierra Romeo starts this set unpatched. Always nice to see him take off with a blank slate. Getting to see and enjoy the process of building up a live set. He guides us to an unknown place, like a modular ninja. Certainly one of his more experimental live sets.
Modulab Fall - November 2, 2017
A concert night full of musical adventures with modular synthesizers.
At Modulab events, we present artists that will bring their modular synthesizer setups for a visual and aural experience. Some will even start from scratch to see where they will end. Each with a totally different character to emphasize the versatility and complexity of the modular sound engines. Hosted by Hajo Krijger.
This autumn audition of Modulab embraces the beauty of decay. The demise, fall, and low sun will resound in the sounds of this night.
We all know Allert Aalders is mister Sonar Traffic in Utrecht. The guy is so busy that it’s hard to get him to play live. We are so proud he paid us a visit at the Modulab Fall event. His set started dreamily and evolved to be a pretty remarkable experience.
Sendepause starts off with pairs of almost identical descending melody lines. Slowly building up layers with variations. Sounds like eighties-style game music composition on a modular synthesizer. Superimposed field recordings take you back to our current day.
