✶ PERFORMANCE NOTES ✶

Arcology
October 31, 2017
Arcosanti, AZ

I had the fortune of visiting Arcosanti for a few days and meeting some wonderful souls while learning about architect Paolo Soleri's vision of the city as an organism for the transformation of the individual and evolution of the species. It's an inspiring place, and while there, I took the opportunity to create a mandala piece (https://youtu.be/rFeHbZPXUd4) and this modular piece shot on top of The Vaults at sunset.

✶ PATCH NOTES ✶

Detailed patch notes archive available through Patreon rewards: https://patreon.com/lightbath

Live performance multitracked on Zoom F8 and mixed in Logic with compression, eq, and effects.

This patch is my current performance patch, sans effects. After completing the mandala piece I had less than an hour before sunset and the light was already fading. So I packed up, grabbed my synth and camera gear and headed to the highest point at Arcosanti—the roof of The Vaults. To save time I decided to go Eurorack-only, no external effects. Compositionally, I had zero prep. I just turned the system on, quickly tuned, and went for it.
