wow, cool description ... nerd. Ha! No that is cool to see that.
These sounds are far out man. Lots of cool bends and things happening, dig it. Like a theremin band. Waiting for a beat/drums. Want a beat maybe. No beat, that's cool too!

lol thanks! Theremin band is about right.

Maybe a bit self-indulgent but I couldn't resist the chance to open-source a tune smile

Hmm... I think you're onto something. Maybe a beat-theremin for next week... yes...

Love this so much. Really rad how complex this is from X/Y mouse movement, too. Great stuff.

Thank you! Yeah I love making these mouse control things. I think this is the first time I made one that felt interesting enough to me on its own.
