Why I chose AUM over Ableton

Why did I choose to use AUM (Kymatica) on the iPad rather than Ableton on the MacBook? It all comes down to money and reliability.

Music? Well music, Techno, is my passion for many of the reasons anyone is drawn into the musical creative process. It just is something I love to do. The whole process is so amazing, the discovery of sounds and even the sound engineering process satisfies me. So I will talk about this as well.

Live Techno Artist

It is ancient, but now its modern too. Its true essence is rhythm. It is found in all types of music, but in Techno, rhythm is the main focus. Rhythm asks you to move with it, simply allow it to take control and enjoy the feeling.

OzGanic @ Revolver

The day finally came – The debut live Melbourne set for Glen ‘Electribe’ Wallis, aka Holotropik as part of the OzGanic music fest in Melbourne. Sunday night at Revolver Upstairs, not exactly the best conditions to win the crowd over, but Holotropik isn’t your average Techno act. For one thing, this guy plays 100% live. Armed with the small but mighty Korg Electribes, a mixer, and the Kaoss Pad, Holotropik was ready to fire out some raw juicy beats.

Korg Electribe ER-1 Rhythm Synth

My first exposure to the Korg Electribes happened 3 years ago when I went into a music store looking for an MC-303/505.

Through coincidence or fate I have become aware of an almost continuous lineage of Raving throughout mans' history. Perhaps this is a reminder to some or perhaps you never realised the complete history of Raves. Most are aware of the general culture of Raves and the guidelines for Rave etiquette, but, not many would be aware of the tradition that accompanies these values.
