David Kellett As ever a wonderful piece. I love that there is stasis and yet movement - minimal with unfolding variety. There is a warmth and depth to the sound that gives it an acoustic feel but without referencing any "instrument" in particular - though the quality of the drum sound makes me think of some weird shamanistic skin drum under a star lit sky.
I love this!

Vaguely inspired by Twin Peaks: The Return Episodes 3 and 14.

Regularly irregular knocking and beating temple music from the Purple Sea.

Patch Notes:

Pam's New workout triggering a peaks BD using euclidian and skipping triggers.

Tides low output triggering Rings strum input, the frequency is free running and being modulated by a sine from Batumi. Rings position and decay parameters are modulated by Batumi.

Braids Feeback FM mode patched into Ripples with the frequency being slowly modulated by a long sine from Batumi.

Clouds is providing a low frequency smeary drone underneath.

Mixed through a beringher mixer with Strymon El Cap and BlueSky on the busses and recorded to a zoom H4.
