Description of the project by Francisco Godinho

\\\ At One Go ///  Dren is inspired by old-school analog electronica shows, in which the machines are at the basis of the sound.

The whole set uses digital software directly in MIDI, meaning that although I start from a certain patch – the progression is variably infinite and never the same as all the changes are made directly on the sound itself (rather than just modifying pre-existing audio with external effects).

Without sticking to a specific musical genre i tried to change my sonic approach each time so that the flow of the tracks is constantly fluctuating and changing as opposed to the solid / defined state of a ‘recorded’ song.

Assigning small tasks to myself, such as trying to emulate vintage analog synths with modern software and making my own synthesized drum kits encouraged me to exercise using different techniques and to problem solve while improvising.
It was also great fun!
