Oss&Eph Pad

Oss&Eph Pad


Four years ago I had to sell all my studio hardware to make room for the birth of our twins Ossian and Ephra. The studio became their room. I’ve since found a corner of our house for my MacBook and AKAI MPK88 and they love coming into the room, grabbing my headphones and mashing the keys and hearing sounds magically appear.

I asked them if they wanted me to make an instrument out of their voices, and intrigued by this alchemy, they heartily agreed.

I videoed them saying “BAAA” as-in tune and together as I could make them, imported the audio into Logic, and had a fiddle. The resulting pad is from one of their Baaas. Works best using sparse, individual notes, held for a long time, and two octaves apart.


Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
