Friday Night Weird Dreams #16

Friday 7th August marked the return of Friday Night Weird Dreams, our improvised, and until recently, prolific group that is largely based on improvised sessions that change direction and members with each recording. It had been 10 months since we released a session, with life, a pandemic and other things getting in our way. ItContinue reading “Friday Night Weird Dreams #16”

Lockdown Sets

Korg Monotron CV Modification

We recently posted a video about the versatility of modifying a simple Korg Monotron, Korg’s budget range of handheld synths, which have been capturing the imagination of the aspiring synth-nerd. I’d watched a video by the infamous Makezine called Colin’s Lab whereby ‘Colin’ waxes about how Korg designed these simple, entry level ‘toys’ to beContinue reading “Korg Monotron CV Modification”
