Adam Hardyman - Borderlands 1

I'm always interested in hearing musicians explore new genres and technologies. They tend to arrive in the new lands with their own ideas, taking their work in new directions. Adam Hardyman did not disappoint on his first journey into granular synthesis. This would best be described with the oxymoron "High Energy Ambient", which managed to avoid falling into Industrial Ambient.

Video Description:

My first foray into granular synthesis with the wonderful, recently updated BORDERLANDS GRANULAR. I never really got to grips with granular synthesis so gave them all a wide berth until now....I’m just starting to get it!! (Better late than never!). So a very simple intro for me, loading in some old samples via AudioShare and seeing what can be done....it’s great fun and it’s taking me in some new musical directions (it’s a very organic process which easily flows hence this being part one of many!)
After the hectic Jamuary I’m back to my old picky self with this one! Making sure everything is ‘just so’ spending too much time on all the intricacies...which can be a good thing, but sometimes not! Loosing the flow, or essence of a piece is very easy when you fuss over every reverb, hi hat, Delay, compression etc etc.
Same with the video - every glitch timed with every effect, hopefully adding to the audio/visual thing.....but again sometimes I can get carried away - what do you think? 🤔

Some of the usual suspects here...
Gestrument Pro triggering things.
Roli NOISE, loving it for drum sounds...
Replicant2 - love how it chops everything up
Rozeta LFO modulating everything...
KlevGrand LUXE - My favourite enhancer, makes things sound great.
GrooveBox - the best way to get ideas flowing...
WoodPressor - love how this sounds on the master.
SynthMaster One - my new favourite synth for arpeggios...
BLEASS Delay - great for everything...

All edited in Luma Fusion.

Oh, also playing with the new BLEASS alpha synth - I think I like it!

As always I really appreciate feedback, love to heat your thoughts!
If you lie please ‘like’ and subscribe for more...

Thank you

P.S. who new you could use an LFO to modulate fabfilter Q3? Wonderful...😊
