Zürich

Hello, internett! It will be soon a month since moving all my operations to Zürich! Most of the organizational stuff is done and I am slowly starting to settle in. I can’t wait until I can go to check out some of the mountains around the area to gather some inspiration for working on a new set and album next year.

After packing my stuff in Estonia, I had to leave most of my gear behind as my old Ford Focus would not probably have handled all the load. Thanks to Funderbeam and Kirill for the Code25 MIDI keyboard that is on one of the pictures, which I was able to squeeze in! It plays ball very nicely with Novation Circuit and is very well programmable. Still, it got me really confused at first why standard MIDI out was turned off by default. NB! Press “edit” and “first octave B” to activate MIDI out on M-Audio Code25, just in case you just landed on this page by Googling for solutions.

I really like Zürich, it reminds me a lot of Tartu — it is a cosy and lovely place to hang out. There are a lot of good vibes around everywhere. I am really looking forward to doing some great stuff while here!

Hacker songs

“Hacker songs” is inspired from computer game music and tracker scene. The tracks are arranged and composed using a mixture of techniques including sampling real instruments, drawing waveforms manually and of course, digital sound synthesis.

It is still work-in-progress and will be finished some time in 2018. You can listen to the existing songs from Soundcloud.

Thank you, Liisi Grünberg for the awesome pixelart.
