Posted on 2014-11-12 in Education, News

Beim Music Playground in der Centrum Galerie Dresden konnten junge Leute in kurzen Workshops des Dresdener Labels „Uncanny Valley“ innerhalb von drei Tagen die Grundlagen der elektronischen Musik erlernen. Als Dozenten standen ihnen “Sneaker” und “Jacob Korn” beratend zur Seite. Die 6h von 14-20 Uhr waren in 4 thematische Blöcke á 1,5h eingeteilt, welche sich NICHT bedingen, aber auch nach einander an einem Tag von besonders Interessierten belegt werden konnten. Je nach Interesse oder Vorkenntnissen konnte man frei einsteigen. Die preiswerte Software BeatMaker (19euro Appstore) garantiert das problemlose Vertiefen der…read more

Korg Polysix: repaired, midified and mod

Posted on 2014-11-11 in DIY, Studio

Got this baby in very bad non working condition. Had to replace the processor board (battery leakage) with a cloned version and to source 12 new SSM chips. It got also MIDI now plus an input for using the internal chorus FX. After cleaning its looking brand new. Thx so much to Curetronic.com and Malte Rogacki for helping with the reanimation:)

Music Production Workshop zum “DAVE” Festival (Dresden)

Posted on 2014-10-25 in Education

Electronic Live Stage Basteleien und Frickeleien in der elektronischen Musikproduktion können genauso soviel Spaß machen wie die Sounds & Beats, die letztlich aus den Boxen auf die Tanzfläche kommen. Doch das eine soll das andere nicht ausschließen. Erst die Arbeit, dann das Vergnügen. So könnte das Motto des Samstags im Alten Wettbüro lauten. Die Electronic Live Stage besteht deshalb aus zwei Teilen: aus Workshops & Tutorials einerseits, andererseits aus der Party mit zahlreichen Liveacts. Als besonderen Gast hat DAVE Dataline aus Göteburg eingeladen. Der gebürtige Istanbuler mit englischem Pass ist…read more

Live Jam with ZAQuencer BCR2000 sequencer

Posted on 2014-09-27 in Studio

Being involved in the development of the Zaquencer Firmware in the final stage, he now added it to his arsenal for creating his unique sound: “I already use mostly hardware synths and sequencers, but the Zaquencer still brings something to the table. It´s as fun and intuitive as an oldschool analog sequencer, but it goes much deeper with possibilities if you want it to.” ZAQ audio: https://zaqaudio.com/testimonial

Jacob Korn – shtum 005 out now

Posted on 2014-09-14 in News, Releases

Another new face for shtum but certainly not for all the Techno aficionados out there: Jacob Korn makes his debut on Uncanny Valley’s sub label to celebrate his old but not forgotten love for dark and bleepy Techno. The tracks’ origins date back to the 1990s when Jacob used to work with a MS-DOS based software sequencer called FastTracker. Imagine programming beats with Excel and look at the graphic interface on the A-side label of the record to get an idea of the workflow back then.Nevertheless, the tracks did not…read more
