the terminator theme riddle

an interesting read of one of the most inspiring tune of a past era, the terminator theme is still a landmark of many. 

 “Terminator was very difficult because I was using many different synths and sequencers and because I didn’t have MIDI available on many of them I had to sync them by hand. This is why the main theme is in a very odd time signature. The looping of the Prophet 10 was just a little short of a complete measure.” read more

monolake live @ ego dusseldorf 5 june 1999

monolake's timeless tunes had been rearranged in this 15 years old live recording that robert henke found accidentally today. a lovely flood of mesmerising atmosphere, lush repetition and subtle sounds yet again from the ableton mastermind. just awesome.

"This is a live recording, captured at Ego club in Düsseldorf, June 5 1999. The music has been created with a self written step sequencer, the PX-18, controlling a basic sample player and effects engine, all done in MaxMSP, running on a Powerbook G3. The step sequencer had some unique features, e.g. the ability to switch patterns independently in each track, which later became an important part of a certain music software. I found the recording on a backup disk today. It has not been edited or mastered. During the first 20 minutes of the set, and before the 'encore' the Monolake CD 'Gobi' is playing in the background."

vapor city @ boiler room london 8 oct 2013

machinedrum's vapor city took over boiler room in london. machinedrum enters the ring in the name of his debut album, then om unit joins him to unleash huge slowfast rollers in the name of the duo's dream continuum pseudo. fracture brilliantly broke the boundaries with slowfast, juke and jungle as usual, dbridge brought back the super healthy autonomic sounds and amit gave some dub bass therapy on a controller. in the name of machinedrum legends join their forces to spread the bass anomaly yet again to the extremely bored boiler crowd. (seriously, why people go for a show if they are just staring at the djs back even during the frenziest rollers?)
