Ambient Modular Synth Performance - Baily's Beads by POB

Published on Aug 20, 2017 Patrick OBrien

"Inspired by all the energy around the solar eclipse, I performed this ambient modular synth meditative piece + some mid song jammin' to help celebrate the totality. The total solar eclipse will pass over the U.S. on August 21, 2017.

Starts off ambient, jams a bit in the middle, then ends ambient.

All part of a live Eurorack modular synthesizer performance that I originally streamed live on my Instagram channel, but I wanted to preserve it for more than 24 hours and also present it in STEREO, so it's now here on YouTube.

The Baily's beads effect is a feature of total solar eclipses. As the moon "grazes" by the sun during a solar eclipse, the rugged lunar limb topography allows beads of sunlight to shine through some of the high moon mountains.
