This is a long and relaxing ambient piece which I’ve made mostly for myself … to quieten down a bit in this stressful and uncertain time. All sounds from the AE Modular system, Solina, Grains and some filters. Slowly breathing in and out.
I was invited to play a short set in Sydney at the Synthstrom World Release Tour 2020 in Sydney. I was delighted to be there and didn’t mind the 6 hour drive up to Sydney past the beautiful countryside where everything was green again after all this rain and the burnt bush was in full recovery. The event was amazing! Everyone there was so skilled with their Deluges, it just made it very clear to me that I’m really only at the very beginning of using this deep and amazing instrument. Thanks to DJ Jon Dent (Jono), True Cuckoo, Terminal Race, Hentaimagi, TactileAF and the truly breathtaking Filmmaker for a wonderful and inspiring evening. I was so nervous that I rushed through my track and played it in half the time that I intended, so here is the proper version recorded directly on the Deluge at home with some impressions from the trip and snippets of the live performance.
This is my first experiment with the new GRAINS module from tangible waves. It arrived yesterday with the TALKING firmware installed which is a cool robot voice that just counts. P2 adjusts the pitch and P3 the speed of the voice. I’ve patched the voice into the MS20 filter which allows for some haunting atmosphere combined with the Deep Space reverb of the MULTIFX. The ALGODRONE is providing the clock for this patch with the cycle out going into the TRIQ164 which triggers a KICK, LOPAG and the GRAINS voice. The ALGODRONE also provides the atmospheric background. I’m playing the algorithm at different speeds via the MIDI keyboard. Higher notes cause the algorithm to speed up which affects everything. The audio out from the ALGODRONE goes into the WASP filter for effect.
Showing a really quick and easy way to tune the SEQ16 by using a MIDI keyboard and your ears.
Just a little diddle while fiddling with the Slew.
