@sciren says: this is one of the tracks I was working on for my scifi "malfunctioning android" concept album, but I was having a really hard time figuring out where to go with it. After @looprication and I collaborated on our last track, I sent the stems over and had them take a stab at finishing it. I'm a sucker for all things Moog and have always been a fan, so I'm pretty glad we got to work together again, and loving how it turned out!
@sciren sent over a pretty finished idea and said "I just want to see what you do with it," a great compliment. The bassline is a Mother-32 patch with a couple of variations in the envelope, patched the EG out --> VCA cutoff in for a little extra punch. Then tweaked the hell out of it during the overload portion. Also used NI Driver on the main synth line and went a little crazy with modulation on that to get the digitally tweaked mayhem going there. Finally, added some wonderful Matriarch nonsense to that same peak but mixed it kinda low as there was already so much chaos going on. It's always awesome when something comes together so well and is a joy to listen to a few hundred times!
my eyes can't focus now
there's too many flashing lights on the console
i think my interface drowned out
all of the alarm sounds
and the static from the comms
i'm losin track of time
my moods turn on a dime
did i commit a crime this time?
no memory of what i've done
no memory of what i've said
out of body, someone else's head
and why would anyone take the time to listen?
i'm not worth much on my own
hey, i can see what has been done
and probably just to hurt me
but i'm still searching for my home
