Watch: Otodojo & Brother Zetaohm at Superbooth17 in Berlin


Otodojo is in Berlin with his brother Zetaohm to showcase their Fluxus One Voltage Sequencer at Superbooth17, a conference for electronic music instrument makers and artists.

Otodojo says, “Adding Fluxus One to your modular is an instantly gratifying experience. It highlights the capabilities of your existing gear, and provides you with a fine precision tool to simultaneously control multiple facets of your modular patch. It will help you to bring more pythagorean musicality into your system, or allow you to embrace utter chaos with its modulation and microtonal capabilities. We have worked very hard to bring a concept to life.

Four channels, sixty four steps.

Each output channel can send one gate, and two CV signals. Each CV output range is 20Vpp. Each pitch output is quantized, and will sequence over a user definable 10V range anywhere within the 20V swing. In a world of analog and digital modules, each with unique CV input requirements, the Fluxus One will allow you to adapt the output voltage to the range of the module you are sequencing. Each channel can behave as an independent sequencer, and can be externally clocked from individually. Per channel settings include step length, clock division, scale quantization as well as input modulation mapping. The Zetaohm Fluxus One is available to project backers, starting at US $575, with an expected delivery of July. After that, it’s expected to be priced at $675.”

Nutritious Shares How to Prepare for Your Next Party via Insomniac

“A great festival experience doesn’t start when you get to the grounds; it starts in the days and weeks leading up to the main event. One way comes really naturally, and that is to spend some time looking forward to the party, which builds up anticipation and makes you more likely to remember it for life. Another and more vital way to help ensure that you have the best possible festival experience is to take care of your body inside and out. Perhaps you’re already operating at optimum health levels with both diet and exercise. You’re a star! The rest of us could probably use some tips from someone who understands the festival lifestyle.

Enter Nutritious, a DJ, producer and graduate of New York City’s Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. He has a passion for beats, as well as for food’s impact on society. If you’ve got a week or two, or even just a few days, to make some healthy food changes before the party, Nutritious suggests first cutting out as much caffeine and sweeteners as you can. While coffee can give you the temporary illusion of having more drive, “excess sugar and caffeine can stress the system and zap your energy,” he says. Your sweet tooth might not like to hear all that, and if you are not ready to go totally cold turkey on sugar, Nutritious suggests using dates to sweeten smoothies and dressings…”

This will be our second ambient & experimental series at Bossa Nova Civic Club! Metamorph is an immersive experience that utilizes music and live visuals to incubate a shift in perception. This event is free! Like the first one there will be rugs on the dance floor. We’ve also figured out a better setup for visuals and lighting to set the mood.

Otodojo: From anime-inspired beats to minimal ambient microhouse, otodojo resists confinement in any particular genre. The name ‘otodojo’ is translated to ‘a sound place for learning’, which reflects its function: an environment built for experimentation, and free from expectation.

Tenkai: Tenkai is an ambient & experimental artist who will be coming from San Franscisco to perform a modular live set. Founder of Zetaohm and creator of the modular synth FLXS1, he pushes his music to other-worldy boundaries that stands true to an artform in itself.

Lisa Dowling: Lisa Dowling is a bassist and improviser living in New York. Her playing has been described as ‘energetic and precise’ by the New York Times and ‘sublime and lovely’ by Bruce Gallanter of the Downtown Music Gallery. Her debut CD ‘The Invention Room’ with Sitarist and electronic improviser Gian Luigi Diana, was praised as ‘exotic’ (DMG) and is distributed by the Downtown Music Gallery. As a versatile musician she performs a wide variety of music including baroque, experimental, classical, jazz and hip-hop. She considers improvising and collaborating with artists from all backgrounds essential to her development as a musician and human being. Her energetic and feisty commitment to new music and emerging composers has resulted in over 12 works for double bass written specifically for her. She has also premiered additional works from American and European composers. Her primary focus as a musician is to develop the sound world of the electric and upright bass and abolish any preconceived limitations of these instruments.

Jad Atoui feat. Michael Coltun: Jad Atoui is a Lebanese music composer and electronic sounds experimentalist. He’ll be playing with michael Coltun who will be improvising on the bass throughout Jad’s performance. Jad Atoui ,using his electronic gear and field recordings that express raw sounds as they appear to us through nature, he produces and composes music that fits styles of ambient, dub techno and glitch. The sonic feel in this body of work shifts from ambient to purely electronic, harsh yet hypnotizing sounds. His work has been featured in Pompidou Center (2012, Paris). As for performances, Jad Atoui performed with renowned artists like John Zorn, Ikue Morie and Erik Friedlander.

AJ Clay: A NYC resident AJ Clay has been spreading his deep, techy, progressive sound throughout the city. When it comes to DJ’ing, AJ believes in one thing: the programming of a night. His name is well on the way to standing for a brand that represents a certain mixture of sounds that build and progress as the night carries on. Also, with a deep passion for ambient & down tempo; AJ has been exploring his more experimental roots as of late. For this particular night he will be laying down an ambient & down tempo DJ set for us.
