New Eurorack Module: Talos. by Simeon Smith

TALOS PROMO SHOT.jpg

Talos is passive clockwork electroacoustic module for eurorack synthesizers, featuring a wind up toy motor connected to a piezo. The motor drives a small cog on the front of the module that can then drive... well... anything you come up with.

The piezo works best with a preamp, but most systems will have something that can amplify the module.

The cog can be connected to other cogs; it's lego-compatible.

140818 - Ambient Modular by Simeon Smith

Tonight I sat down to record the demo for my new Eurorack Module, but... then this happened instead.

I often sit and mess with really simple ambient patches like this, and this time I left a camera running while I got myself a coffee. 

I still haven't recorded the demo for the module, and didn't use it in this patch, but i think you might be able to spot it if you can make it out on my super blurry camera.

New Track / Video: The Label Game by Simeon Smith

I know, I know, I just released an album last week, and here I am with another new track?!

What can I say, I'm just a creative tour de force. 

The other night I was noodling around on my Eurorack modular system with the tape running. This came out. 

Half-way through the session my son came downstairs on one of his many "I can't sleep" trips of the evening, and asked "Are you playing the Label Game?" His name for my modular system.

Video filmed through a 1950's d-mount cine lens on the Gower Peninsula, Wales.
