YouTuber Gary P Hayes may or may not be a fairy-tale princess, but he is definitely sounding like a Disney villain in this Halloween inspired jam. I continue to be amazed at how huge his tiny Volcas sound.
Continuous live dawless jam / improvisation - SciFi Halloween
Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes in Mount Victoria Australia using
Korg Volca Bass, Volca Modular, Volca Drum, Volca Keys
SFX & Solos on KO2 Reverb/Delay on Strymon Blue Sky
directly recorded on Zoom H6 plus ambient sound no other processing
"Rough story breakdown - opens, green misty planet, small shuttle appears, crash lands on misty alien planet, drowsy pilot explores around the base of infinitely tall cliffs, in the twilight creatures eyes peer out in the deep forest, breathing, hissing, overhead the occasional space ship blares past, days seem to pass, being followed, distant bells call, see light on hill, panics, runs, enters dark alien 'castle', signs of humanity, but memories, corridors of gruesome happenings, dreamtime, escape from this world, finds unused shuttle on rooftop, flys, escapes over the endless forest, a moment of triumph, but a creature lurks in the shuttle, slo motion struggle, crash, melancholy, it all begins again"
Normally: All the Volcas and the KO2 are routed through MickXer 5 into 1. That then goes into the Zoom MS70 delay/reverb in stereo, then into the Zoom H6 recorder which powers my Beyer DT770 headphones for great mix balancing in real time. The volcas are sync'd as usual in a cv chain with each others in/out and v Drum as master. Also the Zoom H6 will eventually record 3 stereo tracks simultaneously (the vKeys and vModular through the effects) the vDrum and vBass (direct) and the two mics recording the ambient outdoor sounds live. For outdoor jams, power comes from normal phone style powerbanks 10000 & 20000mAh and I use the myvolts ripcord 5V to 9V USB adapter
