For those who didn’t notice, I embarked upon a challenge in January to produce a music jam each day. In other words, 31 pieces of new music in 31 days. They didn’t have to be long. They didn’t have to be complete. They didn’t even have to be good. That wasn’t the point. The point was to make time every day to make music.
Today is Tuesday, the thirty-first day of #jamuary2023. This is it. One final jam. It is … over.
There will be more about the overall Jamuary2023 experience and my take-aways later. But not too much later, so stay tuned….
It’s the 28th day of #jamuary2023 and I’m back with my trusty Boss RC-3 looper and the Korg Wavestate for another day of jamming. Someone said I was cheating for using extremely long (song length) loops recently, so today’s jam features a fairly short loop…
I started out with the idea to do a simple, space-ambient piece using one patch in a single “real-time” pass using the Korg Wavestate. That’s not what actually happened. Such is the way of a jam, I suppose.
Today’s jam continues with an exploration of the Korg Wavestate, and again uses a selection of factory presets. While I will eventually want to do more of my own sound design on the Wavestate, the sounds provided by Korg and available from third parties are excellent and are great starting points for jamming or performing.
When I got up this morning, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for #jamuary2023 today. It’s the 24th day, by-the-way. As of last night, I hadn’t planned on using the Wavestate at all. But, lacking a plan leads to rash decisions. And so …
It’s the 15th of #jamuary2023! Mid-way-ish through the month, and time for a new synth to play with! We’ll be starting this week out with the Korg opsix altered FM synthesizer. And what a neat beast it is!
