Disquiet Junto Project 0576: Casual Resolution
The Assignment: Get a musical New Year’s resolution out of the way.
Step 1: Think of something, recording-wise, you want to accomplish musically this year — something you can attempt to accomplish now with the tools you have on hand and a little bit of time.
Step 2: Give the goal you set for yourself a go right now. Take a first stab at something that might, of course, require concerted effort over the remainder of the year to really make progress on. The first step is often the most difficult. Why not get it out of the way now?
My resolution is to learn more about synthesizers. I attempted to use the VCV Rack and was able to generate tones, but couldn’t quite figure out recording. I wasn’t thrilled with what I had done anyway, which is a great thing about this prompt–it’s about process.
I then decided to try to make a patch using what I learned from VCV and apply it to the Moog Model 15 app that I knew I could open in Logic. My track is an improvisation using the patch I made.
