My Life In The Buffer Of Ghosts

Design brief: Each track= One drum machine playing a single 8 bar loop (Sonic Charge’s Microtonic) with ALL variations created by effects alone via…

Twisted Tool’s ‘Buffeater’ > 2C Audio’s ‘Aether’. About half the tracks have additional ‘color’ provided by Kore Soundpack ‘Deep Freq’ running ¬†as a ‘ghost track (i.e. in parallel) with original signal alongside and separate from ‘Buffeater/Aether’ output bus.

The triggering of ‘Buffeater’s’ effects was accomplished through 6 tracks of ‘phasing loops’ for an ordered but constantly changing relationship between effects routing and timing. No other additional parts apart from above were dubbed in, just a drum machine and some ¬†creative effects jamming away ala ‘virtual laminal systems theory’ ūüėČ

Wobbly (Drums)

Rhythms derived from the integer sequence ‘wobbly’. From Jason Freeman’s description (as included in his ‘Metamix’ software):

“This sequence is based on a sequence first described by B. Reznick. It seems to wander around a bit unpredictably, beginning like this: 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, -1, 0, 1, 1, -2, -1, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, -3, -2, 1, -1, 2, 1…

This sequence is self-similar; it contains infinitely many copies of itself and is invariant under scale. If you create a new integer sequence by using every other term of this one, you end up with exactly the same sequence!”

The recursive formula for this sequence varies depending on whether each term is even or odd, causing the somewhat unpredictable behavior of the terms.”
