The Sky Is Falling

In 1996, a chemtrail conspiracy theory began to circulate when the United States Air Force (USAF) was accused of “spraying the US population with mysterious substances” from aircraft “generating unusual contrail patterns.”  The Air Force says these accusations were a hoax fueled in part by citations to a strategy paper drafted within the Air Force’s Air University entitled Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025.  The paper was presented in response to a military directive to outline a future strategic weather modification system for the purpose of maintaining the United States’ military dominance in the year 2025, and identified as “fictional representations of future situations/scenarios.”  The Air Force further clarified that the paper “does not reflect current military policy, practice, or capability,” and that it is “not conducting any weather modification experiments or programs and has no plans to do so in the future.

It’s 2012 and they continue to spray us, look up…

The sky is falling.

check out : Akashic Mountain Therimin Sound Test : i’m testing out this newborn baby therimin Shiro built…. sound like theres an indigenous man chanting in it :)

Time for some nerdy talk.

As you all may know I’m totally obsessed with sound of the analog variety. Waveforms are like sonic Lego's™…Square, Sine and Triangle waveforms are the fundamental shapes used to make all the sounds and textures of my compositions.

Here’s one of my favorite patches to experiment with…

Karplus Strong

Karplus-Strong string synthesis is a method of physical modelling synthesis that loops a short waveform through a filtered delay line to simulate the sound of a hammered or plucked string or some types of percussion. Although it is useful to view this as a subtractive synthesis technique based on a feedback loop similar to that of a comb filter for z-transform analysis, it is better viewed as the simplest of a class of wavetable-modification algorithms now known as digital waveguide synthesis, as the delay line acts to store one period of the signal.

Alexander Strong invented the algorithm, and Kevin Karplus did the first analysis of how it worked. Together they developed software and hardware implementations of the algorithm, including a custom VLSI chip. They named the algorithm “Digitar” synthesis, as an abbreviation for “digital guitar”.

Here’s a impromptu Karplus Strong experiment.

Inner Siddhi Portal by VoltageCtrlr

Check out my beloved VoltageCrtlr’s aka Shiro Fujioka new experimental project released by GameOfLife out of Athens Greece.

Inner Siddhi Portal is his secret experimental project.

“ Tuning into Prapti Nada Siddhi, The yogic power that gives you unrestricted access to all places, Shiro taps into frequencies using his analog modular synthesizer and a police scanner to dial into different inner cit…y dimensions to open a portal for the divine beings of light and vibration to study and help raise the Inner G and collective consciousness of the inhabitants of the concrete jungle. ”

Who needs HAARP? We just need Shiro Nada Yogi behind his frequency tuning modular machine tuning up the inner environment instead a these fools trying to manipulate the outer environment :))))) om ))))))

VoltageCtrlr’s latest video broadcast from Akashic Mountain Temple featuring Shiro on the tablas and an otherwordly modular synth session :)

Urban Nada Yoga

What is Urban Nada Yoga?

Let’s begin by breaking down the words:

Urban – City or densely populated area

Nada (Sanskrit) – Sound

Yoga(Sanskrit) – Union

Urban Nada Yoga is union through sound from an urban perspective.

AUM or Om is the one sacred sound/vibration from which the Universe was born.

Shiva and the beating of the damaru produced the first sound (nada) in the void of nothingness. The pulse generated a rhythm to which Shiva began his dance of creation. From his dance, the world came into being.

The Nada Yogi experiences the macro cosmic universe as a projection of sound vibrations that generate, operate and destroy everything in existence. The universe evolved from sound, therefore the fundamental structure of the universe is based on nada or sound vibrations.

17th Century Sine Wave Folder

This composition is one of my favorites because I incorporated one of my all time favorite organic oscillators… 17th century Himalayan singing bowls. These sacred antiques emit amazingly rich tones and timbres that are just intoxicating.

If your on the quest for the perfect sine wave look no further. I really love all the natural tones and cross modulations you can get out of these divine objects.

The next collection of compositions I’m working on will feature me playing the 17th century singing bowls and analog modular synth for a meditative drone project  titled Sacred Sines.

Stay tuned for more videos and updates.  AUM OM OHM

Live from the Akashic Mountain

FrequenSeeR Live From Akashic Mountain 07.12 from VoltageCtrlR on Vimeo.

I’ve been spending lots of time in the lab at Akashic Mountain Studios working on my full length album The FrequenSeeR. It started out as an EP but I kept coming up with songs that totally fit the vibe of the project. I think I have about 13 or 14 songs for this project… I’m really looking forward to sharing it with everyone that like to lend me an ear or two. Thanks a lot for all the support and encouragement, I’ll continue to keep feeding you ears, minds and souls. Here’s a video of me just have a little jam session in the sonic temple.

Game Of Life Studio & Netlabel

(eurorack modular system at Game of Life Studios)

Hailing for the culturally and historically rich Athens, Greece is the modular synth studio and netlabel Game of Life. Founded by one of my favorite modular synth artist Paskal, Game of Life is releasing projects by some of the most forward thinking and creative Eurorack modular synth composers in the scene.

The first release was from another one of my favorite modular synth composers from zürich, Switzerland… Fiocz

Fiocz works with modular synthesizers to create a contact through his music aphasia, artificial beta wave simulations that produce contractions and slow body movements.

Since environmental noise is persistent and inescapable, a significant proportion of the population is exposed to it.

(Folktek Insect at Game of Life Studios)

The 2nd release on the label is from yours truly, VoltageCtrlR aka Me.

Inner Siddhi Portal is his secret experimental project.
Tuning into Prapti Nada Siddhi, The yogic power that gives you unrestricted access to all places, Shiro taps into frequencies using his analog modular synthesizer and a police scanner to dial into different inner city diemesions to open a portal for the divine beings of light and vibration to study and help raise the Inner G and collective consciousness of the inhabatants of the concrete jungle.

Stay tuned for more releases from Game of Life.

Sonic Sun Salutations

Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutations)
Absorb these frequencies and beats in the morning on an empty stomach to enhance good health and prosperity. Breath deep and ingest the divine light of Surya (Sun) in your 3rd eye. Once connected you’ll begin to nod your head to the hypnotic beats and melody contained in this Urban Nada Raga…
Don’t be alarmed, this is just the after effects of inviting the divine light of Surya in you Innerverse.
Enjoy the trip.

PolyMathmatic Beats (Live APC40 Session)

I’ve been having a blast with my APC 40 going through an identity crisis and behaving like a Monome. I really love the minimal design of the monome and plan on getting one when the next batch is ready. Until then I’ll be rockin’ my Akainome.

This composition is a practice session with me rockin’ some live beats and Madrona Labs Aalto synth patch triggered by a hacked APC40 running Monumulator and the Polygome Monome app. This is a study of simi random / generative beats and melodies being composed live.

The next series of videos will feature The Akainome and Analog Modular Synth to bridge the gap between my love for analog and digital… Stay tuned.

Analog Dreams Live APC40 Remix


Hacked Akai APC40 running Monomulator and the Molar monome app.
Synth solo compliments of Madrona Labs Aalto (VoltageCtrlR patch)

This is a live remix of a song called Analog Dreams.
I collaborated with i-scaramanga-i (soundcloud.com/i-scaramanga-i) on the original song. I recorded some analog modular synth pieces and sent them to i-scaramanga-i to rework and add his auditory magick to the mix.

VoltageCtrlR broadcasting live and direct from Akashic Mountain Studios… Blessings from 4300ft. (((OM)))
