Orca vs. QY70 #1 excerpt

By 0F on December 31, 2019 1:30 am

I said I wasn't going to do Weekly Beats this year.. but here we are. These will be more like weekly jams or generative experiments cut from streams, rather than fully composed tracks.

Anyway, here's the first one! I got a QY70 again after selling one a couple of years ago and missing it. In this track I'm sequencing it with the experimental live coding sequencer Orca. All sound is from the QY70 with no additional effects. Turned out kinda witch housey? I like it.

Link to stream. I think I'll move to Youtube for future streams, or maybe some kind of multi-stream setup.. so here's my Youtube channel if you want to know when I'm next going live.

This is so fucking rad, especially watching you program that Orca dude!

It's insane how good that QY70 sounds!

super nice movement on the lead here, those choirs remind me a lot of a particular monolake track - wonder if they're also qy70

Wow, what an amazing choir sound

Perfect approach, checking out the Orca site now, looks really cool...been dreaming of the nomadic artist life a bit...One thing though, if one of the goals is to minimise pain and suffering, have you considered switching to typescript? (sorry big_smile )

Nice. The QY sounds have a real late 90s PC game soundtrack vibe.

This is really nice!

Also, I've wanted a QY70 for a couple of years and this just sent me back to eBay lol.

Listening back to my favorites and noticed I never commented on this one. This is a super nice track, really reminiscent of Aphex Twin's Ambient Works. I particularly enjoy the incorporation of the bells that are slightly pitch shifted out of tune, it's not unpleasant and draws the listener to what the bells are doing.
