An ongoing series of short videos, pairing the ondes Martenot with various effects pedals and sound processors.

In the summer of 2019, Jean-Loup Dierstein, the craftsman who built my ondes, added an insert to my D1 channel, making it very easy to use effects with my ondes. I’ve always been interested in effects pedals, and I have several friends with impressive collections of all sorts of rare and interesting pedals. This ongoing/indefinite series of videos aims to explore the ondes Martenot as heard through as many effects pedals, units, and sound processors as I can get my hands on.

The videos are each very short, around a minute long, and comprise little snippets of my exploration with each effect. I have a few videos shot so far, so there are more to be released. I have more planned, too, and am open to suggestions so do get in touch with your ideas!
