"Daddy, why was the president impeached?"
"He threatened to withhold military aid from a country we shouldn't have been arming in the first place, unless they announced an investigation of a known bent politician from the US. Neither the withholding nor the announcement ultimately happened."
"At school someone said the Democrats didn't want to do any soul-searching about why they lost in '16 and they came up with this instead."
"That's certainly true."
"qMI Three Channel Composition" [mp3 removed -- please listen on Bandcamp]
Revised version of a track from October 2012.
Notes from 2012: "Vermona's Quad MIDI Interface allows you to write polyphonic tunes [on a modular rack] with monosynths and/or mix four-part harmony in the [rack]'s mixer without later overtracking."
Notes from 2019: Added drums, and a new section at the end where the MIDI from the original tune was used to play softsynths on the PC.
"Thx for the Add" [3.8 MB .mp3]
Revised version of a track from November 2011.
2011 notes: "This starts all 8-bit* then a secondary theme comes in [consisting of] MIDI controller-controlled CVs altering a [modular] synth's** filter cutoff (pitchbend) and pulse width (mod wheel). At about 1:30*** the 8-bit part drops out and the secondary theme continues over various Reaktor Nanowave patches playing the main theme. It ends with piano..."
2019 notes: Edited to remove needless repetitions of themes. Piano part revised and re-recorded.
*Not sure what module -- possibly the Doepfer A-112 sampler.
**Not sure what module -- something with pulse wave, obviously.
***1:00 in the revised version.
