No other modules or machines were used, neither for cv nor sound. The track was recorded in one take onto 6 tracks in a DAW, and slightly edited with track timing kept. Mixing, panning, compression and some EQ were done, and a reverb was used for two of the tracks.
I started my collection of Wiard modules when I got a few of them bundled with some used Bugbrand modules I bought. The special sound of the Borg and Boogie thrilled me, and the quirky patterns generated by the Noisering really appealed to my love of generative structures. Since then I have acquired a few more, including the JAG mapping engine, and I often use them to complement the sound of my large Bugbrand modular. In this track I use one Noisering as the main gestural generator, and two more as combined oscillators and processors. Most filters are simultaneously applied as filters and oscillators, modulated from various sources in the patch. While it's running, I am tweaking knobs and playing switches. It's all recorded live, in one take. The title was chosen afterwards, based on the character of the piece. - Palle Dahlstedt
