SSR London - Patch-Building Friday: Modular FX & FX Chains
Patch-Building Friday: Modular FX & FX Chains
Each month, we host Patch-Building Friday, a free event that focuses on building synth patches. This month, the focus was on Modular FX and FX chains for production, sound design and performance.

In the morning Electronic Music & DJ Practice course leader Jake Williams demonstrated some Ableton and Native Instruments tools, and in the afternoon we featured a special guest spot from Cherif Hashizume.

Cherif is head engineer at Café Music and has worked on various albums including: Brian Eno and David Byrne’s “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today”; Jon Hopkins’ “Immunity”/“Insides”; King Creosote & Jon Hopkins “Diamond Mine”; PVT “Homosapian”/“Church with No Magic” and many more. Cherif has also released his own music via De-fence Records and Humble Soul Records including the original track “Empyrean Helix” featuring Tina Grace (Nitin Sawhney) and remix of Vena Portae’s “All Will Be Well”.

He plays live solo using a modular system and also with the band Hrim - Formed in early 2015, fronted by Icelandic folk singer Ösp Eldjárn, Hrim initially started as a duo with London Contemporary Voiceschoir founder and multi-instrumentalist Anil Sebastian (Imogen Heap) until they fell in love with Cherif’s programming wizardry and became a trio.

He showed us how he uses his own bespoke FX setups that utilise Sugarbytes Tornado and "my home brew masher fx triggered and controlled by after touch enabled pads and some s**y reverb I made in max”

Thank you to everyone who attended this event, and to Cherif and Jake for sharing their knowledge!
