cheers mate 8)
its just basic oscillators filters and lfos, but i realised i hadn't droned out yet with the eurorack :hihi: so it needed to be done before there was some catastrophic tear in the fabric of space...

i need to spend some time doing some café listening, notice you and your brother got a new one up :tu:

Interesting piece of music. Nice variations throughout. Kind of modular/analog soundscape? The track kept my attention, which is not always the case with sounds like that. Good work!

A dark, experimental journey. I like it. Sounds like you had a lot of fun making this.

This will be my soundtrack for the next hour or so.

Well that was quite an adventure.

You know, this reminds me of the stuff I used to do back in the late 70s when I got my first synth. I used to love just playing around turning dials and moving sliders. Kind of outgrew it, which is kind of sad in a way. The "joy" of synths just for their own sake has been lost on me. Now they're just a means to an ends to make "real" music.

Anyway, what was this done with? Eurorack? Something else?

My apologies if this has been listed elsewhere and I just missed it.

Anyway, that was REALLY cool.

There's a very similar feel to this to your "epic space hangar" piece from a few months back (vurt lost in space?). Again, I'm not getting much of a human feel, it's all technology and robots and spaceships. Humming engines, robotics bleeps, a metallic sense of spaciousness.

"Interesting" side note: while listening, the oven timer that I'd set started beeping, and it took me about one and a half minutes to realise it wasn't part of the piece. Doh! It did seem to be going on for an awfully long time without variations in timbre, which struck me as odd.

its modular but not wholly analogue, a few digital modules, mainly sequencing but also one of the oscillators, the make noise telharmonic.
there is also some ni replika on the mix down of four layers of the modular.

thanks for listening.

sometimes, i don't feel altogether human.
maybe i long for the freedom space travel would offer.
solitude, amidst the stars...

:hihi: or maybe i sampled your oven timer, in the future and travelled back to when i was recording this, did you check in the wardrobe :scared:

I have a feeling this is heading quickly into "more oven timer" skit territory. At any rate, I can't warble and play the oven at the same time. Especially not in 13/8.

Why Belgium, of all places?
