Although I'm locked out of my studio during quarantine, I am trying my best to cope with my mental health. I've been going through some older recordings and I'm going to try my best to keep posting some new videos on here. Even if it's nothing people haven't heard before from visiting my SoundCloud.

Today is a track I did a while back with my best friend Allan and it's one of the more intense pieces we've done. Inspired by the 1970s rape/revenge genre with films like Rape Squad, Ms. 45 and Lipstick it features a freestyle jazz drum solo done entirely using the Prophet X's arpeggiator. There's a few slurpy filter sweeps underneath as well. Overtop a frantic saxophone goes insane channelling John Zorn while Allan incorporates some dissonant "Slayer-esq" guitar chaos overtop with loads of delay from the Roger Linn Adrenalinn 3 Guitar Effects Box.

Fun fact: The title is actually a reference to the track "Paint Her Mouth" by Herbie Hancock for the original Death Wish soundtrack....I couldn't help but give Jeff Goldblum a cameo.

I hope you enjoy. Be safe. :)

I suppose the video is more showing Keystep than anything else, but Summit in multilayer mode works nicely as a jam set up.

My final Moog Sub 37 Video and some thoughts about Sequential’s next possible synth and plans for some future ARP editions to the family.

I wanted to try something different with the Prophet X. Lately I've been focusing on more synth sounds/old school sampler sounds but I wanted to try and go back to my roots and focus on more orchestral composition. I did this fairly rough sketch of a James Bernard style piece. Originally it was a lot more Egyptian flavored and I was going for a Mummy style piece but after doing a few tweaks it came out more along the lines of The Devil Rides Out or Horror Of Dracula.

Overall, I'm happy how it turned out, especially for a quick, unpolished sketch. I think there was only about 2 or 3 overdubs but most of the track was played in one pass.

The title and poster art is actually of an unmade Hammer film about a cult that performs sacrifices at Stonehenge.

Enjoy.

Video for the title track of my Manbird album has premiered on louderthanwar. Besides featuring a Prophet 5 in the vid, the song itself has Prophet 6 on bass synth and other sounds. The P5 is in there, too - it takes over on bass just as the song winds down. The video was a lo-budget blast and shows off various locales of my home town, Sacramento, many of which parallel scenes from the film Lady Bird. Hope you dig!

I like your new track very much... like most of your stuff. Is there a specific reason why the man bird wears St. Pauli merch?  ;D

Glad you like the song!

I used to perform in Hamburg quite often - my fav venue was Hasenschaukel, just off the Reeperbahn. Before I even knew of the St. Pauli football team and their progressive ways, I picked up the shirt from their shop, just cos I liked it. The Manbird song/album are autobiographical, and we wanted to glue together certain iconic Ant images  - the St. Pauli shirt, the odd hat, the big blue ring - are all things I've worn for years at gigs etc. It's like a "build your own Anton" kit! The Prophet 5 and the Hagstrom guitar are also dramatic "props" that way!

Sacred synthesis,  RE Improv 98:  The dreamy -spacy stuff is my favorite  type of thing on synths.  Really like the slow transitions like at 1:20-1:40, then again at 3:10- 3:30 for example.  I appreciate that this can be done that smooth in a live take.

Ant of 12047-  I wouldn't know this was "low budget" I think this video production is actually really top notch.  Good straight ahead rock n roll too.

Thanks! My partner, Julia VBH, and I have been doing videos together for a bit, and she's definitely got an eye for keeping things sharp and tidy. We've been hired to do videos for other bands, but when we work on my songs, there's nobody paying us, hence "low budget!" I mean, Julia even made the nest by hand using grape vines from her family farm! Our biggest expense was gasoline used to drive around Sacramento. Oh, and I think the pigeon mask cost $25! I do love that high quality albums and videos can be made at home for nearly no money.

With Shout Factory releasing that awesome Friday The 13th Boxset (Which I preordered of course) I went back and started listening to some of the soundtracks of the later films. While Harry Manfredini's frantic score is better known of some of the later synth works by Fred Mollin are quite impressive. Fred Mollin did the synth work on Part 7, the entire score for Part 8 and even scored the F13 series. He also scored the series "First Knight" as well. His tool of the trade? The Kurzweil K250.

While in the studio last week I tried my hand at programming some "Mollin-esq" patches on my Sequential Prophet X.  This is all done in a single take. No overdubs in split mode. Nothing fancy just a quick que.

Some female vocals saying the word "Resurrected" (symbolizing Tina resurrecting Jason) with some tubular bells being hit with mallets and some filter sweeps on the low square waves on one side of the split.
The other side of the split has some strings symbolizing the delicate parts of Tina's scenes and some heavy Simmons esq percussion hits symbolizing the ever approaching Jason Voorhees.

And just like the 80s....there is chorus on EVERYTHING lol

I am seriously considering the new Kurzweil PC4 but really do wish Kurzweil would come out with a module version of their sounds. If I do manage to go that route, you can sure bet you'll hear some more Fred Mollin style stuff on this channel.

Enjoy! Ki ki ki Ma ma ma
