Sequoia - Modular Synthesizer performance in Sequoia National Park


video by Johno Wells

"This ambient / experimental eurorack modular synth improvisation first aired on ModulateTV (Wales, U.K.) 1st anniversary show on April 18.
This track is featured on [RE]MOTION, a collection of remote eurorack modular performances shot in early 2021. It can be found here:

Approach:
Working with no master sequencer is a blast. I am able to listen to where the sound takes me, and not worry about or over analyze where it goes. This open approach might sound scary to those who rely on pre-composed sequences and patterns, but I've found it's a lot easier for me to create like this. When I was forcing myself to create sequences in a master sequencer it just wasn't as fun, and definitely wasn't as pure and genuine of an expression (for me). We all work so differently in modular, and in my practice, this is currently (key word here) the way that's working. Stay tuned to see the journey change...I'm open to where it takes me. Thanks for watching!

Happy accident:
Near the end of the performance, I accidentally pulled the jack out of the input of Arbhar which I was live-sampling into and it made this glorious reverb...reminding me of the live-mic that is on the Arbhar panel. Hm....maybe I should whistle into it? Or...sing into it? See above: "listen to where the sound takes me".
