WDIY's Space Music Program airs every Thursday at 11:04 pm.
Modulator Experimental Synthesis Project (Modulator ESP) is Jez
Creek from Nottingham in the UK. He performs improvised music that
explores the boundaries of dark ambient, drone, Berlin School
sequencing, and noise using modular synthesis, real-time sampling,
sound manipulation, and live looping.
Modulator ESP has been described variously as "vintage synth overload to propel you into the outer reaches of the cosmos" and "one man will descend to (this) earth in a hail of analogue synth tones; called upon from the singular consciousness of John Carpenter and Vangelis - like a 2046 dystopian dream with the optimism of Jean Michael Jarre, and his penguins."
When Modulator ESP discovered that there was more to EM than TD, Jarre, Pickford and Shreeve by finding bands like Arc, RMI, Redshift, Airsculpture, and Arcane, bands that were doing a more retro-styled improvisational take on EM, it came as a revelation to him. One of the reasons he'd left the band he was in was because he wanted to do something a bit more freeform. He knew he still wanted to play live but without playing along to pre-programmed, structured backing tracks.
Things started to snowball when he discovered certain synthesizers, both hardware and software, step sequencing, and delay processors.
Modulator ESP loves playing synths because he loves the electronic, synthetic, other worldly nature of the sounds. This makes Ambient, Berlin School EM the best style for his interests.
