Electrocute was also one of the first groups we asked to participate in the Workspace and Environment series and due to us both having lives, we finally got to it now. This has been a successful week in posting articles that have been sitting around! If you have any suggestions on which artists you would like to see here, drop us a line! Have a killer weekend!
Nicole Morier of Electrocute
How long have you been involved with making music?
Since we were 2 and could bang on pots and shout.
Mac Powerbook, Echoplex
Mostly using analogue these days, but we record in Logic Pro and the Bitcrusher plugin is pretty cool, also like the ES1 synth and Absynth.
Workspace and Environment
Well the helicopters that fly over Echo Park add a certain ambiance to our sound. And the Mexican radio that creeps through our amps sometimes through crossed radio waves can be annoying.
Nicole: I'm writing pop songs. Have a song called "Heaven on Earth" on the new Britney Spears album.
Legs: A stolen computer with Soundforge that broke in a month (karma)
Nicole: My dad's guitar
Logic Pro 8, Reason, Minimoog, OB8, we want a lot.
Mac Powerbook, M-audio interface, SM-58 mic, Logic 7
Sometimes a live band with Drums, Sampler, Minimoog, Fender Organ, bass, guitar and sometimes just programmed tracks off laptop with Roland Dr. Sampler and guitar and bass.
How many physical locations has your studio been through?
Ohmigod, too many to list. We are road warriors and have always made music anyway possible by any means necessary.
Nicole: These are pics from my little home set up which is in transition now as I am in the middle of searching for a new apartment. but the IMac and the Yamaha speakers, midi keyboard and Rode mic travel easily with me and is basically what I use to demo and write tracks on using Logic Pro 7.
