a soundtrack for crossing a bridge

Made a little time-lapse movie and a tune to go with it.

The tune is a snip of one of these ten-to-fifteen-minute long recordings I make while messing about with knobs and switches on the modular. I’ll record these things, then go through and steal bits and pieces that work as loops and phrases and samples that I play around with in Ableton Live. The percussion here is just some simple clicky stuff with a filter delay on it.

I was reading the other day on Stretta’s website that people often complain that music from modulars, at least that on YouTube and the like is too blippy-beepy-boopy and not actually “melodic” or something like that. I realized that I am almost always attempting to make something normal out of that which pours forth from my modular. SO in response I just set up a patch using the Plan B Model 10’s cycle input as the heart and pressed ‘record.’ This is one the more favoriter things I’ve eeked out of this machine.

Dance to it, kids.
