January 2021 and deep in the heart of an English Lockdown- a new release emerges from the ruined brain of Conny Plankton: explorations and experimentations based around the use of the Cre8Audio Nifty Bundle modular set up - re-routings and re-patchings abound ,with a series of dark and atonal soundscapes - reflecting these dark and atonal times.

Anchorites of the 21st Century is the second release from Conny Plankton in the last month of 2020, this strangest of years. Themes revolve around the use of the Behringer TD3 Bassline, connected through various patchings to a range of assorted modular and semi modular devices. The title of Anchorites refers to the monks and nuns of the 12th century - voluntarily locked away top achieve a higher ecstatic and spiritual experience - often being driven mad in the process. Now, in the 21st Century an enforced lockdown from Covid-19 sees a reversal of the situation - although mental disintegration remains a common consequence.
All graphics for the title and seaprate tracks are made from the series of photographs used for the album, Dark Corona, and edited through the Iphone App, Hyperspektiv.
Impossible really to think that December 2020 sees the release of two full albums worth of recordings from Conny Plankton. Both albums have the major theme of the use of the Behringer TD3 Bassline as a central device. This first series of recordings focusses on using the TD3 with a series of processors and connected to other devices via midi. Enjoy Folks!

A new series of recordings by Conny Plankton for October 2020: Alien Beats, obsessive loops, dangerous frequencies, drones and atonal intensity. The loose theme behind the recordings was based around a trilogy of Bass, Beats, and lead instruments - though this structure soon mutated into something else entirely!

Hi folks - it's that time again for another new series of releases from the ruined brain of Conny Plankton - this time round we got further explorations with the Hive 2 VST synth, but now working with a series of Midi Chains and Modular Connections on a whole bunch of different devices. Enjoy!
