Ambient and IDM liveset on two Nintendo DS
AuxPulse are Rutger Muller and Michael Vultoo; two synth freaks blending classic analogue acid, electro, techno, IDM and ambient into a substance that could be a basic necessity of life in another dimension. Their music is inspired by anything strange and/or ravey.
AuxPulse create all their music on two mobile Nintendo DS game devices, running a virtual
representation of the KORG DS-10 synthesizer. The two micro-controller musicians will produce multi-layered tracks, whilst standing in the middle of the audience, of IDM, ambient and acid. Whoever says you need loads of gear to create rich music; AuxPulse proves them wrong.
BIO RUTGER MULLER
Rutger Muller experiments with contemporary classical and electronic music. He works solo as DS-10 Dominator and Von Nohrfeldt and has collaborated with artists like Dianne Verdonk on cello. As DS-10 Dominator he plays live dance music played on a Nintendo DS and toured in The Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Macedonia, Japan and Hong Kong. Muller also reached the semifinals of the ‘Grote Prijs van Nederland’ in 2009.
He completed a Bachelor of Multimedia Design at Avans (2003 - 2008), is currently studying for his Master in Music Technology at the HKU, where he plans to graduate in 2012, and can often be found traveling undetected through your dream stages.
BIO MICHAEL VULTOO
Michael Vultoo has an obsession for analogue sounds. Unfortunately his wallet doesn’t, so he searched for something that could help him out with this problem. The result was: electronic music made with only a Nintendo DS and a virtual analogue emulation of the classic Korg MS-10 monophonic synthesizer, the Korg DS-10.
Together with Rutger Muller he puts his heart and soul into handcrafting all the synthesizer sounds and subsequently composing psychedelic rave music with a nostalgic touch.
