Jet sits somewhat stealthily inside a Ross Lamond VCS3 cabinet. In front, we see a 9090 Analog Drum Synthesizer. From Keith Winstanley via Facebook.
The 9090 is a DIY kit based on the legendary Roland TR-909 drum machine. The original site is here, and there is still an active Facebook group about them. You can find fully build versions there as well as on Reverb, etc.
You can see Jet’s previous appearances on CatSynth here.
This cat is completely bilssed-out next to a Chase Bliss Blooper pedal and circuit-bent Walkman (speed controls). Between the cassette and the pedal, a lot of looping fun to be hand here.
From Antoine Marronclɘs via Facebook.
The Blooper is an intriguing little pedal, and looks quite practical for looping fun. From Chase Bliss’s website:
Within this little blue rectangle is an intricate machine to explore, unravel, and make your own, with infinite opportunities and outcomes…there is loop saving, eight layers of undo and redo, and external syncing. On the creative end, there are two channels of modifiers, a lo-fi Stability control, and three looping modes. blooper’s heart is Additive mode, which allows you to record sound modifiers directly into the loop like any other overdub.
I love this! A maneki-neko turned into a DIY electronic musical instrument. I need to make one of these and will definitely be following up with the creators and curators for more. I do regret not seeing this in person as it was at the Center for New Music here in San Francisco, but this was 2020 and we know how that was.
Fortunately, we can all see some scenes from this video show via this link.
Beautiful and hypnotic “sound path” performance from Kamal Sabran. The kitten seems very relaxed and content listening to it, as do I.
We see an Arturia Microbrute, Kaoss pad, and a wide variety of items including a classic reel-to-reel tape recorder, circuit toys, analog oscilloscope, and more. You can see a previous post from Kamal Sabran here.
“Total Studio Life experience today, I was doing some Mastering when my lovely cat propose me to do some experimental drone Music, So here is a part the result 😀
For people who are interested my kitty use a Diy “Garden Synth”, a DIY synth I build years ago after after watching Folktek Resonant or Luminist Garden from the genius Arius Blaze with H9 effects from Eventide and my old Tape delay the beautiful Roland Space Echo.
I build the ‘Garden Synth’ with one old random box + Guitar and Bass String and cheap Piezo Mics”
The Garden Synth reminds us a bit of our Pocket Gamelan.
