Bass: Elements sequenced by a channel of Peaks #1. I got smarter this time and used Peaks #1 ONLY as a sequencer on that one channel. Nothing happening on channel 2 (too easy to screw up your sequence if you lose the knob positions).

Scary Choir: Elements stereo to Clouds. Clouds Frequency +1 octave.

Drone: Tides tuned to fixed frequency, Level and Smoothness modulated by O+C.

Melody: Rings, in bonus FM mode, sequenced via the Meta-Sequencer. The FM mode has a nice drone-y feel if you crank up Damping all the way, so I'm playing with this from time to time. I also play with the Structure knob position for the spacey chord/bend changes. Rings Even output Ripples filter and on to 2hp delay, then reverb (good stuff!). Mid-way I tried playing a little with Ripples’ resonance. Might have been a mistake. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Rhythm: A TipTop ONE sample triggered by the RCD with variation provided by 2hp 3:1. Peaks #2 in Drum mode (alternate) triggered by two different clock divisions of RCD.

O+C in Quadraturia mode, modulating Brightness, Damping, and Position of Rings, and Clouds' Position (attenuated). A channel is also making the 2hp 3:1 do its switching thing. Also, Tides modulation as mentioned above.

Audio/Video Notes
Camera 1: Sony A6000 mounting a Leica 90mm Summicron-R
