Abhi Meer - Sunday Service (Live at Control ALT Delete 11)

Over the last three years, I've been working on re-creating the sounds or organs and strings within the modular synth architecture. My first long form piece was called 'blutendes Herz' or Bleeding Heart - a 50-minute suite of 'dark ambient' music that I peformed for the first time at Dutch Modular Fest in Den Haag in late 2018. For my performance at Control ALT Delete 11 in Mumbai, I decided to work on an entirely new piece of music. I was given a 3:30pm slot on a Sunday afternoon and wanted to create something apt for that time and place. I decided to name the piece Sunday Service because after a few rehearsals, I felt like the organ sounds had a distinct, church-like quality to them. The piece was performed on a custom-built 6U x 84HP eurorack setup that I've been working with for live performances in 2018 and 2019. I knew going in that it was very likely I wouldn't perform this piece again, so I decided to record it to release here on YouTube. The 22-minute composition was created using modules from Abstract Data, Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, eowave, Erica Synths, Siam Modular and Synthesis Technology with zero external processing. The video was created using a basic iMovie background and inspired by the colors I often see in Sijya Gupta's artwork. Thank you for reading.
