Comments: The slurred timing in this is a little more “gentle” than in previous recordings, and transforms to metric timing fairly seamlessly about halfway through. My main goal here was to focus less on melodic content – using less of it, at lower volume, and more dissonant/detuned instruments. One of the melody generators is being used to play a non-pitched sound (audible at 1:06). Some pattern restarting was used here, hopefully a little more subtly than in previous excerpts. Again, drums have been subject to some audio insert effects (light distortion and reverb). This was recorded using the Lemur (technically a Dexter in Lemur mode) exclusively for both control and visual feedback; most recordings are done like this now, unless the Lemur is unavailable.

Comments: In the interests of full disclosure: the complete version of the above recording. The excerpt above constistutes about the last two-fifths of the whole take.
