"Experimental Hoedown"

"Experimental Hoedown" [mp3 removed]

This song is in several movements a la classical music. It's almost all done with hardware and there is some actual audible knob turning at the beginning. One groovebox is feeding audio into an Adrenalinn pedal's phaser FX while another alters the phased sounds with MIDI notes (tunes as opposed to simple on-off messages). Altering the wet-dry mix in the pedal slowly brings up the un-effected drum sounds. Also, the phased sounds are sometimes further altered by running them through Mutator filter sweeps. I like the matter-of-fact feel of this suite--it's 7.5 minutes and not getting anywhere in a hurry. The phased sounds resemble plucked strings--the "hoedown" part comes in around 1:45 and is on the bouncy side.
