Reed & Caroline’s New Album HELLO SCIENCE feat. Custom Orchestron Disc

Posted by peahix on 8th July 2018

Recently we collaborated on a custom Orchestron disc for the synth pop duo Reed & Caroline. They sent over some of Caroline’s vocal textures and we turned them into an exclusive disc called “Caroline.” Sorry- this is a private title and not available for purchase! You can hear the Caroline disc as well as other [...]

Though we have previously released the marimba sound for Orchestron, it’s making its first Optigan appearance on this disc. [...]

RIP Ralph Carney

Posted by peahix on 17th December 2017

Crushed to hear of the sudden passing of our friend and peerless talent Ralph Carney. Ralph lent us his playing on our Bass Clarinet Orchestron disc, which is at least one weird way he’ll keep tooting his horn.

Vako Orchestron VIOLIN Disc Demo – KRAFTWERK – Franz Schubert

Posted by peahix on 25th April 2017

I transcribed the Vako Orchestron VIOLIN disc parts from Kraftwerk’s “Franz Schubert” and put together a little demo / cover version. I cheated and used samples instead of learning the parts and playing them live on a real Orchestron, but hey, life’s too short. You can get my Orchestron samples here. I put this together [...]

New 2017 Optigan Disc – DARKSOPHONE – Feat. Pall Jenkins

New Orchestron Disc – DREHORGEL

Posted by peahix on 26th October 2016

Hi folks, I’ve been out of the loop for awhile since I broke my wrist, which set me back more than you would think. I’m still recovering (well, as much as I’ve got left to recover, which won’t be 100%), but am back to most of my usual activities now, and I’m eager to finish [...]

Use Of Our Original Optigan/Orchestron Disc Titles

Posted by peahix on 11th April 2016

Since we’ve been authoring new disc titles for the Optigan, our feeling all along has been that these discs (at least the ones with significant musical content in the form of original arrangments and phrases) are sort of like “singles,” ie creative musical products in and of themselves, albeit with an interactive component. We’ve never [...]
