Revisiting the Cloudbusting Organic from Error Instruments

video upload by Musical Miscellany (Poorness Studios)

"After my recent Error Instrument unboxing videos, I decided to revisit the Cloudbusting Organic. I unboxed this cool little synth late last year and I've used it a few times but haven't really sat down to get to know it. It's actually a very cool device with some really interesting sounds inside. I managed to put this piece together using just the Cloudbusting Organic and a synth pad from Alchemy."

Counting Sheep (a sleepy Eurorack composition)

video upload by Musical Miscellany (Poorness Studios)

"Since I'm sick with COVID again, I decided to build a patch on the Eurorack modular synth. This one reminded me of sheep jumping over a fence so I added the counting audio track and suddenly... it became this. It was a fun little experiment and it helped pass the time (and it made me sleepy)."

Calculus Chronicle #1 | self-playing modular synth patch | unquantized generative soundscape

video upload by Musical Miscellany (Poorness Studios)

"I created this patch before going to bed. I wasn't crazy about it at the time. When I woke up the next morning, I made a small tweak and all of a sudden... the patch came to life. Literally. It sounds almost like a living thing. The musical notes are unquantized and the rhythm is a result of evolving voltages. However, all the oscillators are tuned to a reference pitch so it sounds dissonant yet harmonious."

Jamming with the Landscape HC-TT

video upload by Musical Miscellany (Poorness Studios)
