This session started as a learning moment with the Makenoise Telharmoinc. I built the patch around a minor chord progression. The bass is the Makenoise DPO run through a feedback patch using the Synthesis Technology E580 & E560. The percussive element is the Makenoise STO run through the SSSR AWS, Makenoise Echophon & Intellijel Springray. This element was also clocked by the Echophon enabling a constantly shifting tempo. Generally speaking the entire patch was connected in a feedback network of CV and clocks.
This was done for the Disquiet Junto weekly project disquiet0373. It was composed entirely on a small 7u eurorack modular synth. Recorded in a single take in stereo with absolutely no post processing.
The heart of the patch is 3 random sources in a complex web of feedback patching. Each modulation source was affected by another in an interlocking generative system. Inspired by the somewhat famous “krell” patch, but expanded and iterated upon. The main sound source was the Piston Honda MKIII through a Three Sisters filter. There are two secondary sounds coming the Hertz Donut MKIII, one though an LxD and the other through a regular VCA. This is all summed and then multed to two final VCAs each independently controlled by different envelopes. Those are routed into the left and right channels of a micro clouds which is also under somewhat heavy modulation.
I really enjoyed this exercise as I so often make somewhat tonal music that is on a grid. I decided to leave both of those behind to delete my inherent cognitive bias toward human music production.
