modular synthesizer vs pot lid ambient session (mutable instrument ears, rings)

Yes, you read the title correct.. I connected a pot lid to my modular system, cookin' up some ambient tunes :)

Really, I have no idea what I am doing but it is great fun :D I recently got the Mutable Instruments ears, and also today bought a KORG CM-200 contact microphone to be able to add acoustic elements and textures for processing in the modular.. now this calls for a pot session right ? :)

Ears gets the audio signal from the CM200 microphone, which in turn sends audio to the MI rings, strumming is being done on a random fashion with the 2hp Turing Maching using a clock in maths.

1v/Oct in on the RIngs is quantized with the penrose, which has LFO in from the tides, on a slow rate.

/Odd/ channels from rings goes straight out to 1U mixer mixer, the other /Even/ goes into the morphagene which is in sound on sound mode and plays back everything it hears in reverse .. + some glitchy stuff.

Braids soundsource (drone) Maths is controlling the filter on the uVCF which the braids goes into.. . and the Ripples filter is in serial controlled by the second maths channel plus retriggered by the gate out from MI ears.

everything then goes into the EQD pedals + Keeley engineering reverb for FX treatment.

Oh, and at 03.55 I am humming/singing one note drones into the pot lid (now there is a sentence you don't read that often) .. none of the camera angles captured it, but this is what you hear if the sound sources might be a bit confusing :)

Booom, and be careful the track is very dynamic, listen to it on moderate volume the first time.. :)"
