our dignity notwithstanding

I've been sick this weekend with little motivation, so I needed to do something that was both low-effort but also fun for this week. So here's a noisy experimental piece using an alarm clock radio that I modded a 1/4" output onto in college, the VVRONGER portable synth by ventla (https://ventla.bandcamp.com/merch/vvron … ynthesizer) and some Bitwig trickery.

The VVRONGER synth is currently out of stock and I'm not sure if ventla has any plans of making more, I'd recommend emailing them with interest. Also, I made a free sample pack I made with my VVRONGER a while ago containing some drum sounds, bass sounds, and SFX. You can get it here: https://itch.io/e/10918380/donutshoes-p … pack-vol-1

Ok, it's weird, but you know experimental noise music is all kind of weird... but I found this really evocative... like I had a whole like French art house film play out in my head listening to it.  It feels like it would be great sitting underneath a medium disturbing sequence of black and white images, telling a story about late stage capitalism or something.  I love the idea of slowing down, then pitching up "found sounds", such and interesting way to as some hard to place "wonkyness" to a sample.  I'm 100% going to steal that.
