Kosmic Krell

Published on May 16, 2017 intellijel

"In this video we have created a short piece inspired by the Krell patch, a type of self generating music that takes its name from the music of the alien race featured in Forbidden Planet. The Krell patch uses random sources to generate melodies and gates, with higher notes using faster envelopes creating quick trills and slower bass swells.

In this case we are using a ┬ÁScale to quantize the random notes into a Harmonic Minor scale. Delay and pitch shifting is being applied by Rainmaker, sidechain compression of every third step by Jellysquasher, and reverb from Springray.

You can view a step by step demonstration of creating a Krell patch on a Buchla system here: https://vimeo.com/48466272" [posted here]
