background

Rasmussen is the solo project of John Rasmussen.

He is based out of Denver Colorado. His styles range from harsh noise to experimental electronic / minimal electronic / techno / 8bit. John began performing in 1999 after many years of recording. Originally John started Page 27 with John Gross and for years around that time he played cello for 6 years.

Rasmussen uses the following equipment

Computers running many combinations of music and dsp software, Ableton 10, Max/Max4Live, Pure Data, Processing, VSTs, Reaper, and a few other odds and ends. Some custom VSTs written by John.

Drum machines and synths such as the Korg Minilogue, Dave Smith Mopho, Roland TB03, Roland TR08, Launchpad controller, Korg EA1/ER1, old casio keyboards, circuit bent instruments, various pedals and midi controllers.

Old Commodore computers such as the C64 with synthcart Available here, MSSIAH Available here, and various tracker programs such as Sadotracker Available here (used in a live setting), SidWizard Available here emulated via the Vice emulator and not emulated on real C64s. To run these programs he uses a SD2IEC which allows you to use a memory card as a drive for C64/C128, Available here

Currently John is working on a new minimal electronic release that will come out in Fall of 2019. Along with the release John is working on a VJ system that can send audio level and midi data from Ableton to Processing via Max4Live to create real time 3d graphics to be used for live performances. John expects to release the system with source code on a site called GumRoad and maxforlive.com.

Recently John release a max4live device called Time Lord, it allows you to play random sections of any mp3 of wav file and runs in Ableton 10 with Max4Live, it is available for free at Time Lord 1.0
