I’m on the home stretch now — today’s the first day of the last week of this crazy experiment. Today’s sketch is an experiment in noise music in the most literal sense. I had some trouble with noise from the Blofeld while recording yesterday’s sketch. When I recorded that noise today I noticed some rhythmic elements in it, so I chopped it up and reassembled the bits in Ardour to produce a bit of a noisy percussion piece.
Of course, I usually don’t want to record this noise, but thankfully I’ve worked out how to kill it. It’s due to ground noise in the USB cable running from the PC to the Blofeld, so I just need to use the Blofeld’s standard MIDI input, rather than the USB connection.
