Eventuate - Tides


#1

Hello lines, I’d like to share my first album, released today under my artist name eventuate.

The album is conceptualized around layering and looping instruments with Mannequins w/ (controlled via Teletype Grid Ops on a few tracks). The only sound sources used for the album (two tracks each) are Mannequins Just Friends (Just Type), Roland Juno 60, and 7 string guitar.

Thanks for listening!

wow, these textures you’ve got are really enormous! Inspiring me to make more W/ looper pieces. congrats on the release!

In case you feel like talking process a bit more, I’d love to hear about how you used two W/s together.

thanks!!! always happy to talk process!

it varies track to track, and some of them only use one w/ instead of two. for the first two tracks in particular, i got great results by taking my source sound through cold mac’s left input, and sort of panning/crossfading it into one w/ or the other. this way i could sort of build the layers separately.

I used a TT scene featuring the wonderful grid ops to make a 14x8 earthsea-like keyboard with 2 columns of stored CV values, which as you might guess were then sent to the w/'s for controlling playback speed. these values are roughly tuned to octaves, 4ths, and 5ths above and below the base speed. I’ll put the scene below for anyone that wants to try it out. i only scratched the surface on this album; it could be taken to manyyyy new places

the end of the first just friends track is me shifting them to different speeds against each other (i don’t remember exactly but for example one might be playing a 4th above base speed, and the other a 5th, and then switching them against each other). sorta like contrary motion in counterpoint i guess??? but different haha

you can also really hear this as the first juno track builds up. until the arp comes in, the juno is only droning on D, and I layer it at different playback speeds to get different pitches. at some points I even switch speeds while layering it to get the rising/falling pitches. yay for CV.SLEW
