Sketch#15 (Hawk Excuse)

There’s no time like the present to connect a bunch of hardware together and make some lazy, hazy music! Hot off the heels of my sketch last week, this one puts me a step closer to the sounds and vibe I’m chasing in my head. 

Worth noting here are the heavily-effected beats. The beats are being triggered by the Elektron Digitakt and really come to life with the combination of the Red Panda Lab Tensor and the Electro Harmonix 8 Step Program. The 8 Step is controlling the expression of the Tensor, which is slamming the blend to 100% whenever it randomly lands on the step. Just as necessary, the Strymon El Capistan adds the tapey, echoey, dubby vibes. 

This one is currently being worked further into full song form for an upcoming release. And that’s really the whole point of the sketches, to launch ideas and foundations into orbit.
