I’ve spent the last couple of weeks in the studio going over the expanded set-up of my sawtooth/vocoder work, Goyder’s Line for an upcoming performance (see image below.) In addition to the original set-up, I’ve incorporated an Electroharmonix POG2, which is serves as a rich octave generator for my trusty Korg Monotribe.
Whilst going over the work, I decided to explore the potential of running a stable sawtooth waveform through the Goyder’s Line set-up with the incorporation of a slow sweeping sawtooth wave from the Monotribe, articulated by the harmonic depth of the POG2. Once I had the desired initial state in place, I left it running for the next 45 minutes – occasionally adjusting the parameters of the units, so as to gradually evoke changes in the harmonic structure of the sound and overall texture.
The resulting work, Holocene can be listened to below.
