I’ve been meaning to chat with Gahlord Dewald on the podcast for years. He is forging new ground by fusing double bass playing with modular synthesis and is a unique voice in our community.
He and I were both at the 2017 International Society of Bassists Convention, and we took a few moments to chat about:
- what Gahlord uses for his performances (Eurorack modular system and DPA mic or piezo mic)
- how to start with a phrase/snippet of melody, capture it into electronics and adjust from there
- the unique funkiness of each individual modular synth
- good pedals to start with
