Recently enjoyed a conversation on the Disquiet Slack about the potential for haunted modules. It turns out I’m not the only person that thinks their modular has a spirit in it, desperate to get out into the world. Anyone feel the same? Care to describe your ghostly rack friend? (Doesn’t need to be limited to modular, though modular seems to be a bit more ghost friendly than other formats)
Mine leans towards a bit of a sludge metal / head shop occultism / stoner profound spirit. The kind of spirit you pick up from a thrift store dream catcher or used flannel shirt. It’s reared its head a few times in generative patches which end up barking at me and I can’t figure out why. When I add random modulation FM attenuators, it’s in its element. It also gets in my inner ear during heavy drone periods and makes me feel dizzy. If I ever needed to get rid of it, I’m pretty sure I could convince it to jump to a VHS copy of Pulp Fiction or 2001 and then move it to a secure holding zone.
Now you go.
