Felt Kaan’s Paradiso Live at LaGrind Noire Experimental Electroacoustic Impro-Night

Here is a live performance at LaGrind Noire by Felt Kaan (Hannes Pasqualini, Michele Cagol), with oscillographics by akirasrebirth using a modular synth and axoloti. The description on the youtube page is below the video. Some of the oscilloscope graphics get quite complex and are pretty wild. Go ahead and check it out.

Felt Kaan’s Paradiso is a composition for synthesizer and field recording inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s triptych the garden of earthly delights, to be more specific, by the leftmost panel depicting Adam and Eve in the garden of eden.

The piece combines imitative counterpoint performed on a modular synthesizer with unprocessed and live-processed field recordings, focusing on the strong expansion of time and exploring the richness of what happens between notes. Felt Kaan is more interested in rendering a state of mind than crafting a sonic representation of Bosch’s painting.

A brief introduction to Modular Synthesizers

For those looking to make the jump into the world of modular synthesis, Max Brodie, a music producer/composer out of Manchester UK, has provided you with a brief introduction to the wild and crazy world of modular synths. When Max isn’t making cool videos about synthesizers he’s writing music for companies like American Express, Volkswagon and Vodaphone. Check out his portolio site, where you can watch his demo reel and see some of the other brands that also enjoy using Max’s music.
