This is melodic techno (I guess?) with live vocals in English and Irish. Everything is routed through the ER301 which is handling mixing, EQ, ducking effects, drum samples, and more. The only module out there capable of all that, I’m pretty sure! This is a live take, I’m using white noise to cycle through a bank of samples for the hi hats as per the technique shown on Crumb Dinger’s youtube channel (not sure what their @ is here), and an internal LFO to alter the pitch of the claps. Running live vocals through a delay pedal and then directly into the ER301 for more reverb and delay as well.
Proud to present my latest CD, Blaenau.
Welsh themed ambience ideal for late night headphone listening.
Now getting more and more comfortable with the ER301, this was on mixing & mangling duties mainly.
Also used the ER101/102 a bit on some of this (although I really need to put some serious study time in with it, I’m only scratching the surface of that killer combo).

All compositions were composed live and improvised on a small modular suitcase.
I Used the Maths function on the ER-101 to conjure up melodies and random voltage.
Most percussion samples were either from the ER-301 or from the ALM Haswell’s Taiko, WMD Kraken and WMD Crucible.
Drums sequenced using the Shakmat Four Bricks Rook. Additional background percussion sequenced with the ER-101
All synth sounds from Accents : Amie and Polygon 4-tet
Recorded straight to Reaper with no editing to capture the rawness with errors and mistakes.
This is such a cool piece of music. A composition that starts to stress then cools down. There’s a phrase that takes the piece into an almost jazz drum shuffle. A thoughtful phrase of quietness and contemplation, almost a duldrum. Or in Dirty Harry terms the eye before the storm
er301 patch consists of a varispeed player loaded with 1 shot hits - selected and triggered on the fly by monome grid connected to monome earthsea. This audio then goes to a 10 sec er301 feedback looper which record’s continuously. The buffer of the looper is then sent to an er301 granular unit - grain stretch and the parameters manipulated with a faderfox. Audio then goes to the tuned filter delay, reverb and compressor units. I am using 2 sliders on the faderfox which manipulates the granular parameters and live looper feedback via i2c and connected via teletype. I use this patch for live improv performance but also add w/ looping also. I have different versions of this patch and frequently replace the drum hit sliced samples with field recordings and found sounds for a completely different style.
