My (first?) take on #slothcore (see https://fawm.org/forums/topic/11434/)
During COVID lockdown I started exploring modular synthesizers. A year ago I had a microKORG as my only synth, and didn't even own a MIDI cable let alone know what "control voltage" meant.
My modular goal is to make "generative" music: in the words of Brian Eno, "any music that is ever-different and changing, created by a system." So those are the sorts of modules I've been collecting. Last fall I started posting videos of random jams and sonic experiments on YouTube.
So why not get a FAWM track out of it, too? 😀
This is my first attempt at a "hybrid" generative piece, meaning it uses both the computer (MIDI plugins) and hardware modules to sequence and add randomness. In short, the laptop is creating random 4-part chords in C major at 20 BPM, and the modular system is splitting that up across 4 different voices, some of which are further manipulated into melodies. As a bonus, those generative melodies are quantized to the first 3 notes of the scale, so it's also a "Week 2 Challenge" track!
