What are the ‘Modular Sessions’? 

The aim is to write, perform and record a new track in a single take using only a Eurorack modular synth (and FX pedals). The key motivation comes from the idea of creating and performing a complete song using a limited set of tools and removing the ubiquitous DAW from the creative process.

This is the 1st volume of the side project ‘Modular Sessions’ from Brighton based electronic artist/producer VCOADSR. 

Modular Sessions Vol.1 - Can you here me?
