Im part of a small comunity of electro freaks called: Dogma Noveau. As you might guess we use rules for music making.
About once a month we meet at someones home, eat dinner and present our music to each other. Every month there is a new rule, decided by the host of the last Dogma.
I joined DN after this summer. I have made music for many years. Mostly on my computer, but lately more hardware based. The last year or so I have felt a need to hok up with others to get inspired and playing live to some degree.
DN 9 was my first. The rule was to make a tune with, not too distorted vocals. Thats a challange for many of us instrumental electro nerds. It was very fun though and the results turned out surprisingly good.
DN X was a live based dogma. The rule was to perform in a studio in Linköping(Sweden) called Bassline. Backtracks were alowed, but something had to be performed pure live. link (all trax from DN X)
I decided to perform completely without computer. Others only on computer (Ableton Live) or a combo. I used my Elektron Machinedrum UW and Monomacine. I also threw in a few chords with my Alpha Juno-1.
My set was a structured but improvised tree part set called "Novemberdjur"
Part I: Giraff
Part II: Zerbra
Part III: Antilop

Dogma Noveau seems to be exactly what I need musically rigth now!
