Lynda Mark Mothersbaugh Music Composer Creative Inspirations TUTORiAL
In this installment of Creative Inspirations, we meet music composer and DEVO founder Mark Mothersbaugh at home at Mutato Muzika, his studio on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. This is where he and his fellow spuds (Mutato combines mutant and potato) create some of film and television's most compelling music.

Mark reveals what drives his projects that have ranged from Clio Award-winning commercials, to Emmy Award-winning music for television, to soundtracks for popular video games. Mark shows us his stunning paintings and drawings that have been shown in galleries around the world, and shares his motivation behind being an artist working in various media, his fascination with mutants and symmetry, and using Photoshop to manipulate his work. He also discusses how the unique DEVO sound, look, and philosophy first came together, and why after a 28-year break, they came back together with a new album and tour.

What is Texture?

Texture is a sample library comprised of pads, atmosphere and sound design style instruments.
Customise, sculpt and combine patches using the fantastic graphical user interface, which allows you to subtly change or completely mangle any of the 100 patches that come with the library

Why use Texture?

As a composer myself, I know the feeling of spending 90% of your time fighting deadlines, and the other 10% writing music. Having a tool like Texture will help speed up your workflow, allowing you to set the tone of your music in a matter of minutes.

From heavenly atmopsheres to unnerving twisted soundscapes, Texture is perfect for composers making a living writing music for film, tv or video games. Built into the front panel are 8 modules, allowing you to shape and manipulate the library to fit the needs of your project. Using the built in effects such as

    you can create biting aggressive tones or spaced out modulating soundscapes, all with a few mouse clicks!
