Monty Mole meets Neu! in Dusseldorf

By Tristan Louth-Robins on February 13, 2020 9:10 pm

I had a dream the other night that I was playing my favourite childhood game on a C64 (Auf Wiedersehen Monty) and some Krautrock started when you entered the Dusseldorf screen.

I recently got a Korg SQ-1 for input to my Eurorack, so within five minutes I was making krautrock. smile

The percussive element is some white noise with an envelope triggered by the second CV gate output from the SQ-1. Its swingy rhythm is the result of running it through the B input of a 4MS DLD and tweaking the time in the second half. I then lock off a loop and let the real-time percussion play over it, which is why it ends up as a wonky polyrhythm. Weird samples are triggered by a pulse from a TipTop One sampler.

Really like the white noise percussion and the synth tones are wonderful,  great work.

Thanks Ryan! Yeah, I was delighted by how expressive the white noise is when gated by the sequencer. Probably not the last time I'll go all Cluster/Neu! on WB. wink

Great texture with that rinsing out gritting tone along side the melodic motif.  The almost phasing percussion is cool too.
