[2021-05-24] A Continuation of Lullabies for Friends

Past Bedtime is a collection of tracks recorded in the photo lab, a continuation of "Lullabies for Friends" by Yethiel.

This album contains 2 hours of drone, tonal patterns and timbre experimentation with a single Volca Modular. Looping was achieved with a BOSS RC-1 looper. Warmth and distortion was provided by a Cloninger tube gain. The last track is an exception, it features the Ouroboros Electronics Alea.

The album can be downloaded for free on Bandcamp.

[2021-04-20] Announcement: Timbres by Yethiel

Every instrument can inspire you to take completely unique paths based on their interface, rhythm and timbre. Over time you get to know the ways of an instrument, what it can do and where it can lead you. Experimentation becomes a major way of playing the instrument and sessions become progressively more structured and musical. Timbres is a result of experimentation with synthesizers, effects and field recordings. None of these tracks could be played like this again. The notes, rhythms, echoes, timbres and field recordings are a snapshot of a specific moment. I would not call them compositions at all, they're much more like memories.

The album mainly features synthesizers that embrace experimentation as a workflow:

The one you will hear most often is my custom Volca Modular. It is an arrangement of knobs and banana jacks on olive wood. You can see its jacks and knobs on the cover art of the album.
The other synthesizer is the Ouroboros Electronics Alea. The Alea inspired me to build the Volca Modular B. It is made of sapele wood and has a similarly experimental layout. There are no labels and explanations, inviting you to come up with creative patches.

With Timbres I invite you to listen to moments composed of timbre, rhythm and sound.

There will be a very small home-produced run on IEC-II tape. The release date is July 3, 2021.

[2021-03-25] Zetasphere Joins Patching Flowers

We welcome ZetaSphere to Patching Flowers!

I've known ZetaSphere for quite some years now. Over the time I got to listen to many of his energy packed and melody-heavy songs which were a huge source of motivation for in troubled times. His music kept evolving but it always kept the good soul that it had from the very beginning.

ZetaSphere joined us with two releases: Reminiscence which is a jazz-fusion inspired electronic piece and a compilation of some of his earlier tracks Assorted Works Jan-Jun 2018.

I'm really glad that he joined Patching Flowers. There are many more releases to come!

You should check out his albums on Bandcamp, you won't regret it!

[2021-02-12] Yethiel Featured on OSCILLATOR

Yethiel has been featured on OSCILLATOR, a portuguese radio show focusing on synthesizer music.

OSCILLATOR is moderated by Nuno Pirez and airs weekly on the radio station of Rádio Universidade de Coimbra. The selection varies from show to show, some being quieter and others being more percussive. Ambient and experimental music are the dominating genres. The featured tracks really show how diverse the timbres of oscillators and synthesizers can be.

The show is great and interesting for focused listening but definitely suitable as background music when you're working on something or just relaxing.

You can find the stream with "Evening Walk, Fascination" by Yethiel on mixcloud.
