only the grey horizon

"0-Coast Ambient: only the grey horizon

for every arrival, a departure

Analogue improvisation with Makenoise 0-Coast, Korg SQ-1, Strymon Timeline, Strymon BigSky

Main motif is a single take recording, no editing. Additional noise background and high-pitched ‘percussive’ noise both from 0-Coast (derived from same patch)

The 8 possible pitches from Row 1 of the SQ-1 are ‘played’ throughout the recording (turned on/off to create the melodic fragments).

Makenoise 0-Coast
Image of patch at start and end of video

Square wave out to Tempo in (sets int clock to oscillator (audio rate)
Random out to LinFM in (creates noise bands in oscillator)
Slope set to cycle, EOC patched to sync in on SQ-1
Cntrl out to Balance in

Korg SQ-1
CVA patched to 1V/Oct
Single row of 8 pitches, Active Step mode
CVB patched to Ovrtn in (uses 3,5 or 7 steps)
Gate A to Contour Gate in

LinFM amount and Balance pot adjusted throughout performance. The combination of these 2 creates the changes in noisiness of the oscillator and overall bandwidth of the noise.

Strymon TimeLine

Custom patch based on dTape algorithm

Strymon BigSky

Custom patch based on Magneto algorithm
