“Circuit Glyphs” – Analogue Solutions / Phobos Red Square

November 24, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

An Abstract Electronic solo piece sequenced in 5/4. The Phobos (aka Analogue Solutions) Red Square Semi modular mono synth is choosing most of the tones through it’s Sample and Hold circuit. Rhythmically driven with 10 step sequencer modulating LFO frequency clock speed in steps which is sent to the S&H modulating the the cut off freq and pitch. Note values are all contained or tied within subdivisions of an eigth note (16ths, eighth note triplets, 32nds, eighth note quintuplets, and some faster) in 5/4 time. Notes that hold or sustain always begins on an eigth note value in 5/4 time, whether or not if it’s carried over the barline. The midi clock is never interupted, but counting bars isn’t the intent here, without any intentional bar markers, it opens up the minds perception of the quintuplet family of notes in contrast to space. Rather than having an obvious 5/4 structure, the mind defaults to 4/4 perception, thus making the eigth notes perceived as permutations of eighth note quintuplets, becoming the perceived base note being subdivided.

a 4 step sequencer modulates pulse width at times. playing SD-1 keyboard strictly as a midi controller. No overdubs, one live performance,with some Lexicon MX300 spring reverb added.

Scene: Year 7800, Location: In the sands of Massachusetts, in an area formally known as technology highway. Explorers discover remnents of circuit boards and believe it to be a lost language or art.

Note: Circuit boards shown are not of the Red Square’s internal boards.
