Synths For Lunch (Nik Batt Live Set and Rig Rundown)

I’ve been following sonicstate.com for a couple/few years now. Nick Batt does some of the best coverage of up and coming instruments and technology in the world of synthesizers and other studio gear. His coverage is thorough and even with the more technical stuff, he makes it make sense to follow somehow. It’s nice to see this short set from him for a change, where he doesn’t have to talk about what’s happening. Moody, heartfelt a well arranged set!

Here’s a breakdown of the rig here:

Alphastare (experimental sound/video)

I used to make these little videos to accompany some of my music more frequently. This is the first one I’ve done in over a year, shot mostly on BART in SF and Berkeley, enjoy!
