"The Fool Embarks on Another Journey
It feels good to be exploring a full 208hp system again. I spent the past two months without a proper case and finally this week, my Submodular Systems case arrived! Whew, this thing is a beauty. So well-designed and manufactured.
This piece emerged as I was experimenting with layout and choice of modules. I was so happy to be patching with two full rows that I didn't even take the time to screw any of the modules into the rails.
This patch features four parts played by arpeggiators in the Squarp Pyramid: a melody/counterpoint sort of situation with two STOs shaped by Just Friends, a semi-stochastic granular vibe with Rings into Clouds, and a Reich-inspired arpeggio with the PreenFM2 into OTO BAM. Noise/percussion is Dunst shaped by Just Friends. The thing hanging off the left side is a passive attenuator I'm using as level controls for Clouds and Dunst. Planar shapes the STOs via Belgrad and the DLD provides the space on those STOs."
