Modular Performance: Elegiac Theme

Published on Dec 18, 2017 Mike Thomas

"This piece grew out of a faster thing I had worked on for a few days, but got frustrated with. I decided to slow things down and see how it worked.

Ornament & Crime is in Harringon 1200 (chord) mode, and sending v/oct to the Verbos HO, Sputnik Oscillator, and Elements. Chord changes and inversions are driven by Verbos Voltage Multistage.

Mutable Instruments Frames is in sequenced mode, modulating several Elements parameters and driving octave changes on the O&C.

At some point it struck me to hold down the Gate button on Elements and wiggle the Flow and Blow knobs. Additional modulation of Elements' tone is provided by FM from Ripples in self-oscillating mode.

The HO and the Sputnik Osc are fed to Streams in (red) vactrol mode, and on to Clouds' left and right channels. Clouds is in Parasite looping delay mode.

Various modulation provided by Qu-Bit Chance, Batumi, and Sputnik WCRS.

Recorded direct to Sony PCMD50. No post-processing. Video recorded on a Sony A6000 with Sony/Zeiss 35/2.8."
