A little modular music

I’ve been creating and archiving quite a few of these little modular pieces for the last year. This is one of the latest patches that utilizes modules from Make Noise, Verbos Electronics, Livewire, and Music Thing / Thonk. The patch is fairly pre-set, relying on a couple of base sequences that are scanned at random rates based on values generated by the Livewire Chaos computer. The oscillators are inter modulating to dynamically change timbre, and one sequence also drives the minimoog model D that provides the backing pad. Most of the build up and breakdown is manual tweaking of dynamic and timbral controls for a sense of live performance, but the notes and sequence themselves are random.
