This is the first online mp3 of me & my mates. We are a 3-piece electro live-performance band called Sst!, in which a Clavia G2 plays a central role in providing the infrastructure for real-time interaction between our drummer (e-drumkit), guitarist and me (bass/synth). In this mp3, our drummer plays drum-like sounds that are made by gating / filtering / messing with the real-time signals from the guitarist and me on MS-20. It is one unedited performance captured on two tracks in my attic. Let me know what you think.

It sounds strangely ambient and chopped up. I do like it.
If you didn't tell the drummer is playing the sounds of the others it would seem the compressors are adjusted rather heavily Very Happy

I think that you've got to see it also to get more into the vibe, i wonder how it looks to see your drummer play. I mean, there is a drumkit being played on stage but you don't actually hear drums, that must be a special sight.

Yeah, I guess you're right about seeing us live. We are trying to make our music in such a way that it can be performed live exactely the same as when we practice / record, without the use of automated sequencers (well, maybe not strictly, but not dependent on it). We keep the musical 'themes' very minimal/simple on purpose, and try to create something interesting by all kinds of on-the-fly processing or interaction between the band members. Because of this, and the repetiveness of the music, it might be more interesting for live performance than for recording.

We did one live-performance so far which was very much fun to do, and the audience seem to enjoy it a lot. I might add that the audience consisted of philosophy students and teachers; it is quite possible that they were a bit more open to experiments than the average rave-crowd Smile

I like this. It sounds like it could be the soundtrack of a Dr. Who episode. I think that is because of the bass line which is similar to the that used in the Dr. Who theme.

If you can play this kind of stuff live, then your band will be a big hit. Laughing

Thanks for honoring electro-music.com to be the first site to host your band's music.

i'm a big fan of the synth sounds towards the end.

also I have almost no musical diciplicine, and I was hoping for a snare, but that's a good thing...

...When some fool whines about "not enough snare drum" you know you made an enlightened piece of music. Very Happy

Yeah, I think this is cool. The drum effect is good because the drums have a tonal element which fits within the music of the rest of the track. I occasionally vocode my drums to achieve the same kind of effect.

I think it's a very cool track.
i'm not sure i like the effect on the drums though - it's original but maybe doesn't do good for the rest of the track.
but I do like the synth lines and bass guitar parts...
