Miura Ori // semi-generative ambient

Published on Feb 18, 2018 rustyjaw

"Another Argos Bleak-centered track. Making heavy use of the vibrato to slowly swing all the oscillators around the notes detuning each several cents above and below the note.

Why "semi-generative"? Well there are two programmed sequences being played into the A and B inputs on the Argos, but the note/chord changes are triggered by random gates from the Stillson Hammer into the Argos Bleak's quantizer-trigger in. The chords themselves are presets I created in the Argos, but they are 'chosen' by Rene's unquantized out as it very slowly steps through a sequence.

What is decidedly not generative is the way I control the mix levels and filter cutoffs. But for the most part the track kind of runs itself which was a good exercise for me in giving up a little control :-)

And finally, I was able to sneak Magneto in for the crystalline chiming sounds that come in about halfway through. Magneto is in Loop mode."
