Oscillendulum 1

February 24, 2007 8:19 PM

This is one of a series of short pieces (about 10 or 12) I recorded using only a JUNO 60 analog synth (found at a Tokyo junk shop for only 10,000 yen!). The Oscillendulums all share a similar structure (gradual addition and/or subtraction of layered repeating parts), with an eye toward the creation of a sort of liquid polyrhythm. I also had in mind the musical approximation of animal sounds such as frog and insect choruses from a pond, which are part of the inspiration for this series.

Ooops, that JUNO 60 link didn't go where it was s'posed to. Well, anyone interested can go here, straight to the trusty Google.

I had a nice synesthesia-groove going while listening to this - domo arrigato, f@m.

I like this. We have a Juno 6 that we use on a lot of our stuff and that we love very much. I can definitely hear the pond.
