Bowditch > Relentlessness
Restlessness is the first track in a series exploring sample manipulation using granular synthesis. The original sample comes from the stem of an old unreleased USRNM track from 2008 and is processed using a Max For Live patch in Ableton Live. MIDI data was gathered from the stem using the Convert Melody to MIDI function and used to play back the sample. Other automation was drawn in and edited to suit. GRM Spaces and on board Ableton Effects were also applied.
The ideas have been lingering in my mind for some time but the Covid19 lockdown has afforded me the time and space to work on them, looking inward, looking outward.
