Check out my live band Bone Triangle: https://soundcloud.com/bonetriangle
I love the freedom and immediacy of the electronic production environment. But also love playing live instruments (drums mainly) with bands and people. All tracks original material played, composed and produced by me, Nicholas Dallwitz, unless mentioned.
I am moving further and further towards producing music exclusively with hardware and real physical instruments rather than software synths and samples. All my latest tracks only use software (Logic Pro) to sequence and for effects. This is not for some elite reason of authenticity as much as the fact that physical hardware and physical instruments offer their own individual uniqueness and nuance to the sound. Each synth is like a new instrument with it's own personality and temperament. I grew up learning recorder, piano, then mainly drums and a bit of guitar, and the subtlety and expression from physical instruments keeps me wanting to experiment and produce. The computer is the tool I use to arrange, compose and sequence these experiments.
I still call them experiments because I am always experimenting with sounds, styles, feels, moods, genres, instrumentations, although the end product will not necessarily sound experimental.
Synths I use:
Waldorf Pulse 2
Dave Smith Tetra
