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.”

“Taking a cue from Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, a publication that features intimate conversations between creative thinkers, we asked two of New York’s rising electronic music producers, SpinSpinNYC’s otodojo (Maro Kariya) and Twin Primes (Omar Ahmad), to record a dialogue about what inspires them to create music and what influences their productions. The artists did just that and then some, exploring politics, life lessons and visualizing the sound of molecules like benzene along the way.
Twin Primes (TP): I first heard your remix of “Says” by Nils Frahm through a friend who is known for being a huge critic.
otodojo (O): I didn’t think that putting drums on top of a piano sequence looping for 10 minutes would lead to such a great connection.
TP: What’s behind the name, otodojo?”

“2016 was an interesting year to say the least. There were ups, downs and thankfully plenty of amazing music to keep us going in good times and bad. Now that the year is in our collective rear-view mirror, we asked 238 DJs and electronic-music artists — emerging up-and-comers to veteran stars — to reflect on 2016. Here are their musings listed in alphabetical order.”

Microtones is a musical experience for those that resist convention.
Alexei Versino from Stump Valley (Rush Hour, Uzuri, Off Minor)
Hailing from Berlin, Alexei has witnessed a swift rise to prominence in the electronic music scene following several releases on Rush Hour, Uzuri, and Off Minor as one half of the deep, jazzy, genre-bending Stump Valley. Having kicked off the 5 year anniversary Boiler Room Berlin Pool Party in August, and a podcast on Dekmantel, their momentum is unceasing. As an avid music collector, Alexei has packed his suitcase with records that are sure to cause anatomical fluctuations.
From animation inspired progressive hip hop to minimal ambient microhouse, otodojo resists confinement in any particular genre. The name ‘otodojo’ is translated to ‘a sound place for learning’, which is its function: an environment built for experimentation, and free from expectation. otodojo’s newest EP ‘A Piece Removed’ has just been released on SpinSpinNYC.
