Slowly mutating chords and voice

More literal take on the “ambient office” genre. Patch notes - Strega used with granular processing (Beads) to get the pads, Brenso lead through an LPG. Just Friends pinging multiple filters to get all the clicks and pops, also with some granular processing (morphagene). Chord progressions played manually, sequenced by teletype.

The chords are urgent, yet they don't kill the vibe at all, which is really neat.

this soundworld sucks you in. I picture a little frog that has figured out how to communicate by hopping on a midi keyboard.

Yeah, the bouncy synth has almost the pattern of speech. The whole thing feels like someone talking in a weird language in a dream. Really like this one.

I came in to say a lot of the same thing: it sounds like bits of conversation heard in the other office down the hall, but not understood; surrounded by the sounds of coffee makers, HVAC, people walking down the hallway, copiers. I'd say faxes as well but what even are those
