Supersonic Festival, in conjunction with BCU, hosted the Mooglab, a vast modular Moog analogue modular synthesis system that has toured the world. I spent some time with this monster in June this year, setting up and experimenting with patches, and harvesting results. I came away from a very intensive day with a vast array of Moog-generated sounds. The piece presented here is the first output from my Moog material.

It is, in many ways, quite dark and static, being essentially underpinned by an extended broadly harmonic drone generated by analogue sequencer driving a system of oscillators, filters, envelopers, delays and resonators. From the drone emerges melodic figures, glitch material and aggressive gestures that meander and coalesce in various ways, the “pure” eventually triumphing over the dark. It was mixed into 5.1 at Birmingham Conservatoire studios, and is folded down here to Quadrophonic.
