    "the.crab.nebula"

    The last time I heard of many troubles with GS3 in rewire mode.
    So I'll demonstrate an expample in which GS3 works in forte Rack together with synthesizers & controlled by an external midi device.
    The link

    http://www.v4m.net/music/gim/IsAnyBo...CrabNebula.mp3

    points to the composition

    "the.crab.nebula"
    super.nova.4.daw.guitar.&.strings

    which have had the first performance last year in Vienna with the Ensemble Neue Streicher, Gabriel Guillén, guitar and Jovan Pesec, daw (ZTAR).

    The composition uses 2 VST synthesizers (M42 Nebula & Camel5000) and Gigastudio 3 in rewire mode in a forte ensemble rack.
    The synthesizer part & GS3 was controlled using a MIDI guitar (ZTAR)
    Below you can see my little son Oskar playing the ZTAR.

    Each "string" of the ZTAR is conncected to synthesizers or GS3.
    e --> M42 Nebula
    h --> Camel5000 (Crab Pulsar)
    g,D,A,E --> GS3 (lib.: Dream experience & Drone Archeology)


    The whole composition is based on images of the crab nebula taken by Voyager and the impulse of the crab.pulsar (used in Cameleon5000).

    And a 2 bar folks melody which Gabriel Guillén heard two years ago on a concert tour through Algeria.
    The backgound of the compositions (which is part of my space.suite "is.any.body.out.there?) is a starship which enters the Crab Nebula and leave it again.

    The strings in this recording are from VSL using GS3

    Have fun and give feedback,

    Jovan

    Hi Jovan,

    Unfortuntely the link is cut up. I can't download it. I'd love to hear it. I'm 'space' inspired myself and also wrote a Space Suite, an orchestral one about 3 years ago. Space Art still inspires me. I can't wait to hear this. Please, fix the link. Thanks!

    Cheers,

    Re: "the.crab.nebula"

    Sorry, the link is repared now.
    I would be interested to listen to some of your music.
    Give me a suggestion, please.

    Jovan,

    I love this. A love the nice ambient drone you've put under your composition. IMO, you don't really need the pizz in terms of ambience. It's abit dry for my taste too. I like the acoustic guitar! Sounds wonderful. What mic did you use to record it with? Or is it a semi-acoustic?

    I like the harsh clusters as well. Work very well in the composition. I've made a special Jovan folder for it in my music partition. ;-)

    Well, on my site there's alot. The newest cue is "Arrival at Mars, Enter the Lifeboat and the Attack" which is underscoring for a sci-fi film. And for some album work you can scroll down in my music page and listen to some excerpts of my "Space Paranoid" and "Philosophies of an Android" albums. Although Space Paranoid is fairly old already...

    Hi Sid,

    At the moment I'm listening to your newest cue "Arrival at Mars, Enter the Lifeboat and the Attack".
    A really fantastic composition, I like the theme & the kind of development in your piece. The orchestra sounds very natural. Is it a real recording of an orchestra or a recording of a sampler?
    What kind of libraries do you use?

    I'm not sure but could it be that this compositions is a little bit influenced by Mars by G. Holst?
    But I think we all which we like scfi music have a grandfather called Holst.

    Cheers,
    strings: you are right, they are bone dry. I did it this way to get a contrast to the synthesizer sound with heavy reverb.

    guitar: it is a spanish guitar made by Ramirez and performed by my friend Gabriel Guillén, a guitar master from Venzuela. All sequences are played with nails near bridge. The track was recorded in my studio in vienna and added to the composition. I use 2 special micros for stringed instruments by AKG and a dynamic micro mounted on the bridge manufactured by Schertler, a Swiss company.

    drone: this are signals from the Crab Nebula recorded by Voyager and morphed with Camel5000, a great software synth especially for puproses like this.

    Thank you for your nice comments

    Hi Jovan,

    Thanks for the explaination, those transmissions sound great. Is there a site I can download them from perhaps? And yeah, I like your guitarsound. I play guitar as well, mainly electric. Recently I recorded some again for a sci-fi animationshort. A mix of orchestral, electronics and elec. guitar. ;-)

    Thanks for your comments on my piece. Everything you hear there are samples. I use Sonic Implants for the strings and Project SAM for brass, the percussion is mostly freebies of TrueStrike. Haven't got the whole package yet. Although this whole cue needed alot of tweaking midi-wise, the postproduction phase- mixing/mastering, was also a very important aspect.

    You got an IM like msn or aim btw?

    Hi Sid,

    sorry I got mixed up.
    The images & sounds were taken by Hubble telescope & not Voyager.

    See below:

    Shocking Secrets of the Crab Pulsar
    ===========================

    Just when it seemed like the summer movie season had ended, two of NASA's Great Observatories have produced their own action movie. Multiple observations made over several months with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope captured the spectacle of matter and antimatter propelled to near the speed of light by the Crab pulsar, a rapidly rotating neutron star the size of Manhattan.
    image "Through this movie, the Crab Nebula has come to life," said Jeff Hester of Arizona
    State University in Tempe, lead author of a paper in the September 20 issue of The Astrophysical Journal Letters. "We can see how this awesome cosmic generator actually works."
    The Crab was first observed by Chinese astronomers in 1054 A.D. and has since become one of the most studied objects in the sky. By combining the power of Chandra and Hubble, the movie reveals features never before seen in still images. By understanding the Crab, astronomers hope to unlock the secrets of how similar objects across the universe are powered.
    Bright wisps can be seen moving outward at half the speed of light to form an expanding ring that is visible in both X-ray and optical images. These wisps appear to originate from a shock wave that shows up as an inner X-ray ring. This ring consists of about two dozen knots that form, brighten and fade, jitter around, and occasionally undergo outbursts that give rise to expanding clouds of particles, but remain in roughly the same location.
    "These data leave little doubt that the inner X-ray ring is the location of the shock wave that turns the high-speed wind from the pulsar into extremely energetic particles," said Koji Mori of Penn State University in University Park, a coauthor of the paper.
    Another dramatic feature of the movie is a turbulent jet that lies perpendicular to the inner and outer rings. Violent internal motions are obvious, as is a slow motion outward into the surrounding nebula of particles and magnetic field.
    "The jet looks like steam from a high pressure boiler," said David Burrows of Penn State, another coauthor of the paper. "Except when you realize you are looking at a stream of matter and anti-matter
    http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/new.../2002/24/text/ (1 von 3)01.02.2005 20:29:57 HubbleSite - Release Text about "Space Movie Reveals Shocking Secrets of the Crab Pulsar"
    electrons moving at half the speed of light!"
    The inner region of the Crab Nebula around the pulsar was observed with Hubble on 24 occasions between August 2000 and April 2001 at 11-day intervals, and with Chandra on eight occasions between November 2000 and April 2001. The Crab was observed with Chandra's Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer and Hubble's Wide-Field Planetary Camera.
    NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., manages the Chandra program, and TRW, Inc., Redondo Beach, Calif., is the prime contractor. The Smithsonian's Chandra X-ray Center controls science and flight operations from Cambridge, Mass. The Space Telescope Science Institute is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. (AURA), for NASA, under contract with the Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. The Hubble Space Telescope is a project of international cooperation between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA).

    Cheers,

    Here some useful information:

    The Crab Pulsar:


    Crab Pulsar impulse recorded by Hubble telescope:
    http://music.v4m.net/gim/IsAnyBodyOu...sarImpulse.wav

    Crab Pulsar impulse modyfied by Cameleon 5000:
    http://music.v4m.net/gim/IsAnyBodyOu..._Camel5000.mp3

    the.crab.nebula.motive played by Cameleon5000 using the impulse
    http://music.v4m.net/gim/IsAnyBodyOu...v_TheCrabb.mp3

    the.crab.nebula.XRAY.drone played by Cameleon5000 using background noise from the Crab Nebula:
    http://music.v4m.net/gim/IsAnyBodyOu...ebula_xray.mp3


    I like the Cameleon 5000 synthesizer, because he is very easy to handle and give you uncounted possibilties to modify your own natural sounds and spray it over the keyboard.
    Also the M42 Nebula is very useful if you compose scfi music



    I hope this helps

    Ey Jovan,

    Thanks man! Looks/sounds great. Here's a link I go every day to see new images:

    Hope it helps you too.
