"Synergos" is one long and fluid piece of music, soothing and encompassing. Almost 40 minutes from start to finish in one bite.
It is my most ambitious creation, composing and producing a single unit of 40 minutes where an external sequencer was dealing with all the poly-rhythmic steps while the internal Apple based sequencer was dealing with longer musical cues.
In the making of this project, two hardware devices where built in order to extend the sound palette used in the album as well as provide additional compositional control. The first is the SID Box 6561, a synthesizer built around the Commodore C64 SID sound chip, while the second is the Skylight MSS 2007 Midi Step Sequencer.
The MSS 2007 drives all sequences and drum parts, while the SID Box provides sound effects and strings.
