Liner Notes: 

i bought a used "richter wogglebug" module online that just arrived... it's a quirky randomization module (with clock, control voltage, and audio sections).

this piece started out with me doing the "Jittery Clock Concept" example patch from the user manual online, and then i kept adding stuff from there. it's kind of a cool vibe, although not exactly consistently rhythmic with, well, a "jittery clock" and all...

kind of like if R2D2 tried to make an alt-electronica record.

i'll try to reconstruct the patch from memory, since i tore it apart after doing the one-take recording...

\\\\\\\\ patch notes ////////

* turing machine + pulses expander (1+2 gate) -> STO -> dynamix
* turing machine volts expander + pulses expander (4+7 gate) -> dixie ii+ -> dynamix
----> all melodic voices mixes down and sent to typhoon

* kick = basimilus iteritas alter
* snare = akemie's taiko
* hihat = chimera
* plonk (forgot the mode) for some other random euclidean rhythm stuff
----> all percussion voices mixes down and sent to pico DSP

* self-patch wogglebug -> turing machine + grids
* turing machine w/ expanders sequences the 2 melodic voices
* grids sequences the kick/snare/hihat
* euclidean rhythms sequences another bit of random percussion
* ochd + rnd step + diode chaos for a lot of parameter modulation for excitement

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

These are fun sounds. The way they pitch shift is interesting. Your initial "boop" and the symmetrical ending one help the listener contextualize it as music.

Yeah, more "malfunctioning starship AI" than "Jittery Clock".
But super lovely all the same.
I really like this a lot.
I think we need more experimentation and weird music here at 50/90, so thanx for this.
Great headphone panning in the last bit there.
