EMC23 Presents The Concept Mixtape - LIVE

The first episode is up, you can see/hear it at


While I had originally intended to open with a vcvrack patch, I had a pop tune that I had no way of contextualizing until I found this patch by Black Earth. https://patchstorage.com/a-new-years-hallow/

It opens like the BBC radiophonics that precedes it and morphs into a poppy piano-like number that perfectly represents vcvrack and allows me to morph into YOLO (the pop tune.)

You can see the VCVrack patch in the visuals but this time I rendered the patch to a wav and played it in Ableton. In future I intend to play the vcvrack patch live.

To this end we are playing around with designs for a DIY VCVrack modular midi controller(s) system

Wouter previously built the random freesound downloader for volca sampler that I use a lot in the shows https://www.google.com/search?q=freesound+volca

Anyway I think this episode is a good representation of the expected trajectory of the show and I hope you enjoy.


Nice tunes!

Now with 300% more VCVrack! I rendered a Synthikat piece because I was focusing on other technical issues for the show. But 3 days and 20 takes later, when I recorded the show and was playing the rendered VCVrack piece, the vcvrack dedicated laptop was still on an synced with the studio so I was able to play alongside using the same patch. Track list to come later.
