  • The Narrow Road to the Deep North

    With a nod to Basho, we head next to the Studio, where our friends Nemo and Viceroy are waiting for me. I started working on my current project last week so I guess it’s about a week into it now. I’m at the stage where I’ve actually recorded everything probably that I’ll need. Now I’m…

  • Back to the Future of Music

    I’m working on an album with Frank Fuller, as our second project together. This time around we’ve got some experience under our belt, and my homies will surely be impressed by the production values. With fresh material in hand, one good song deserves another. And so it goes. I’m working with 3 DAW platforms again…

  • Voyage to the Bottom of the Cmaj

    I’ve got new ideas of musical collaborations. I enjoy working in tandem with other people. I am self employed with a high degree of initiative. I don’t like having somebody breathing down my neck while I work. So collaborations can be constructive, but it varies. I’m playing the analog synths again and can record them…

  • Flux Oersted Equipment

    Someone asked me to list all the equipment that we use to make music. I have dutifully done so here in an open environment. This is a partial list. We obviously can’t get down to individual transistors here. Flux Oersted Equipment Analog Synthesizers:Roland Juno 6 Roland Juno 60 Moog ProdigyKorg MS-10Korg PolySixBebo 5000 Rack Mounted…

  • Why are so many people on Facebook Starving?

    I think it is the music they listen to. You should hear as many songs from https://youtube.com/fluxoersted as you can fit into your schedule. Subscribe there. The subliminal hypnosis will help you lose weight and boost your metabolism with the purest simple resonance of music. It will sound strange at first, and if not, then…

  • Type fast and hold on loosly

    Autocorrect just changed its mind on me. Bizarre. I’m slowly making progress on 3 songs in different places. My technique is to start with the sound palette. I have a variety of synthesizers, samplers, software, and guitars to accomplish my goals, whatever they may be. I seldom need a sound that I can’t create myself.…

  • Searching for sounds lost

    That sound you hear in your mind is how you should synthesize new voices on your synth. Learn the oscillators and filters for that subtractive synthesis sound you really want to capture. Oh, what about FM? Uh, that’s covered in another treatise by an Irishman whose name eludes me. Today I’m finishing integrating the DX-21…

  • Serendipity

    Started a song today that has the full spectrum of my instrumentation. I didn’t plan it that way, but it turned into a piece that has virtual instruments combined with ROMplers and the Maniak synthesizer. But the Juno 60 is heavier than I remembered. I don’t think I can carry it any more. These days…

  • BirkenStout Interview with Robby Garner, digital artist and AI researcher

    Anecdotal evidence that Elvis is not dead. It is 2023 and only Robby Garner, Jeff Fletcher, and possibly Sean McCormick are the remaining survivors of Uno Ya, and their premier album, Youth In Asia. BS: Robby, how does Uno Ya relate to other bands that play some of the same music like Flux Oersted, and…

  • Studio Logic and Reasons

    The virtual world is where I’ll stay. I tried working with the sort of technology from the 1990’s. I used some rare earth equipment from E-Mu Systems, FM synths, and a Roland D-110. I’m trying now to get everything from inside the computer, truly in the digital domain. I may have recoiled at the first…
