restless sea

By ioflow on December 2, 2016 10:22 am

a live performance in one take. ambient improvisation. monome grid and arc, modular synthesizer, strymon effects, mlrv. recorded into ableton live.

patch notes:
the piece begins with the monome grid playing rhodes melodies that i recorded earlier and loaded into mlrv.

monome arc is connected to ansible, running cycles, which opens a gate and envelope (happy nerding ADSR) that lets through white noise. that noise is generated by mannequins cold mac. (crease patched to survey, turn knob to noise at 3 o'clock, mac out to audio interface.)

flipping the switch at top left of isms connects the grid to monome earthsea, containing four patterns recorded earlier. notes are sent to mangrove, gate to just friends in sustain/shape mode. mangrove square out to 3sisters' "all" input. audio from that lowpass filter is sent to mutable instruments clouds, and then out to the strymon delay and reverb pedals (el capistan & bluesky).

thank you so much! i've been making an effort, when permitted by health and time, to finish off WB2016 with visuals to go with the sounds, however brief.

really beautiful piece. Love the overall pacing. Needed a good reminder of how soothing a rhodes can sound. Thanks for this! <#
