    Default Postcards from Jupiter 8 -- a weekly miniature composition exercise (60 second clips)

    POSTCARDS FROM JUPITER-8 is my miniature composition exercise. Every week I will post a 60 second miniature composition or sound design exercise using a single synth, the Roland Boutique JP-08 and a minimal effects; there will be no postproduction, no editing, no multi tracking.

    And here is my first one! Hope you like

    POSTCARD 001: GENERATIVE CHIMES. This is a minimalist, generative composition using single notes from the JP-08; the cadence is quarter note triplets, playing in alternating directions. As each note repeats, it creates cascading, wind chime-like suspended chords. Shimmer reverb adds an etherial halo to the sound. Equipment used: Arturia BeatStep Pro, Roland JP-08, SMPro NanoPatch (passive attenuator), BOSS RV-3, TC Electronic Flourescence, Blackstar Fly 3.

    POSTCARD 002: FUTURE FUGUE. Inspired by JS Bach's counterpoint, the BSP is providing two monophonic melodic lines on the same MIDI channel. The shimmer reverb creates choral chords in the background from the implied chords.
    Equipment used: Arturia BeatStep Pro, Roland JP-08, SMPRo NanoPatch, TC Electronic Flourescence, Blackstar Fly 3.

    POSTCARD 003: CYBERPUNK BLUES. Another exploration into multi-mono sequencer lines, this time a bass line with a melody on top. JP-08 into a BOSS RE-20. Has a sci-fi-fi vibe to my ears.

    Equipment used: Arturia BeatStep Pro, Roland JP-08, BOSS RE-20, Blackstar Fly 3.

    POSTCARD 004: SUNRISE AMBIENCE. Infinitely sustaining chords create a thick cloud of complex harmonic interaction.



    Equipment used: Arturia KeyStep, Roland Boutique JP-08, sustain pedal, BOSS RE-20, SMPro Nano Patch.
