“Whatever work you undertake to do in your lifetime, it is very important that first you have a passion for it — you know, get excited about it — and second, that you have fun with it. That’s important. Otherwise, you see, your work becomes nothing but an idle chore. Then, you hate the life you live. ” Julius Sumner Miller

I’ll never forget the first time I’ve discovered VCV Rack. For those of you who are not familiar with VCV Rack, it’s a free and open source virtual modular synthesizer, and it’s awesome! Anyway, I was so happy that I found VCV, I wrote directly my old synthesis teacher and told him about it. Never heard from him since…

A while back, I studied Electronic Music Production and Synthesis, but after a while deserted it and discovered Classical Music. I never liked working on tracks with all the cut\copy\ctrl+D\nudge\quantize and so on. It was counter-intuitive for me, and not inspiring what so ever, so I moved on to playing the piano and composing for piano, guitar, flute…

After a while, all of a sudden, this urge inside me was screaming to go play with synthesizers again and give it another shot. And then I discovered VCV Rack. How lucky am I…

So I fell in love with VCV Rack, with the way I compose music in VCV Rack, I fell in love with the modular environment, with all the different modules and crazy features, and I was lucky enough to get to know some really interesting people, fellow musicians, module developers, and synth-heads.

Slowly slowly I started having the urge to “get my hands dirty” and have more hands-on control so I got some hardware to play with. It started with the Midilar controller, a modular Midi controller designed to work with VCV Rack, then I got the Beatstep Pro, the Neutron, Keystep, O Coast, and around Superbooth 2019, I got my first case and the beautiful Morphagene from Make Noise. Since then I accumulated a few more modules, working with Vult, VoicAS, Arturia, and step by step I was building my live setup.

There are three things I love the most about modular. I love the fact that everything is always running, always there. You connect an oscillator to the output and it’s there, the sounds are there. There is not stop\pause\move\cut\copy, everything is happening in real time, just like music does.
I also enjoy having everything right there for me, under my hands, sort of conducting an orchestra, bringing voices in and out.
The last thing I love about modular and VCV Rack is the community built around it. So many people share their music, their sounds, their ideas. Everyone is working together towards a single goal. Having fun.

So here I am, sharing my music and sounds, and also my ideas. I hope you will enjoy what you will find here. I know I do enjoy creating it all.
Cheers and have a good one!
