Although SVN has stepped back from full time music production, both Science and Nature continue to work toward remotely reuniting their sounds in the internet age.
Working via our FTP the duo have been developing a work flow using software synthesizers and Logic Pro as their primary Digital Audio Workstations.
Going entirely digital allows for full recall of studio sessions with no variation in sound or mix ensuring both Science and Nature can effectively hear, edit, and adjust each others studio sessions as required without inadvertently altering one another's vision
Once this work flow is set, SVN will be back in the swing of music production.
Letting go is so hard.
After decades of collecting hardware synthesizers, Science has finally seen the light and decided to liquidate the parts of the studio he doesn't use. Although there is an emotional attachment to many of the machines that created so many SVN tracks as well as a multitude of tracks before SVN was even formed, the truth of the matter is that software synthesizers sound better, are more functional, and always have perfect recall when sessions are reloaded.
There are two camps of people when it comes to gear. Those that love hardware and those that loathe it. We leave that to you all to decide. There are several pieces that won't be going anywhere, however (Akai MPC 3000, Moog Little Phatty, and Roland VP9000 for real time MIDI tweaks to vocal productions.)
This is the end of one era and the continuance of another. The most important thing is that creativity isn't inhibited and tunes are still composed. We embrace the journey and subscribe to evolutionary theory. Today, Nature wins.
Creative partnerships are one of the greatest gifts any artist can receive. With the right partner, artists can push their work further and faster than they ever could on their own.
This second viewpoint has allowed SVN to create sounds and systems that previously never existed. Working together has sometimes ended in the butting of heads and pushing of compromise, but ultimately has made the sum of the parts greater than the whole.
We encourage all artists who feel stayed in their work to open up their minds to the power of a second perspective.
Uniting in art is just one step in uniting the world.
