Formanta Drone [surface noise]

Formanta Drone [surface noise] by macumbista

An older track from 2003, but one that I still appreciate. It uses the sample-and-hold noise-driven LFO of a Soviet-era Formanta EMS-01 synthesizer, digitally cross-bred with the surface noise at the end of a scratchy old Russian vinyl. Reflecting on this piece, I can see the start of a deep interest in automatic, generative and self-modulating processes taking shape. Thanks to Maksim Borisov for use of his amazing electronic museum piece! Originally released as part of the Karosta Project.
