Patch Notes for “A Farewell To Broccoli”

Here is a spreadsheet that details the patch I used for this track. Patch uses Spectraphon, SWN, and Klavis along with a bunch of effects and samples.

This is a new format for my notes. Previously I put them in composition books, listing all connections to all modules even if they were duplicated. That got to be too voluminous, and the spreadsheet is shareable too.

Doctor Jackpot, Or, How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Singularity

An homage to “The Peripheral,” a short-lived Amazon Prime series. The Apocalypse approaches as things fall apart, order vanishes abruptly, and chaos ensues. The mess never really ends, just dies down to a low roar.
Mostly DAW-less, with some adjustments to level in Audacity.

In A Dream

In A Dream- Music (music/melody/motif) heard in a dream. Here only the logic of the subconscious holds. Time passes without regard to the regulation of metronomes. Scenes shift in and out of focus, unrelated and passing to the next in a blur. It is an encounter of another world, in the not-entirely-quiet quiet of the bedroom.

Mostly made with Eurorack modular synthesizers. Some re-mixing and EQ done in Presonus Studio One 6.

Modules used: Nerdseq, Mojave, Klavis TwinWaves, Sealegs, Magneto, RYK Vector Wave, zlob Diode Chaos, Make Noise WoggleBug, Pamela’s Pro Workout, Disting EX, etc.
