During the pandemic I bought a tiny modular system and once I learned the rudiments of how to patch I began recording a series of 'Covid Drones' as a way to learn modular and process my experience of Covid 19 in the UK. This is the final track I recorded and relates to Lockdown. It is inspired by the many walks my partner and I took in nearby woods when everything else was shut down.

The patch is performed live and features a drone from both channels of Make Noise Maths, fed into an MXR Carbon Copy guitar pedal. I also have some notes of a ukulele fed into the Morphagene - during Lockdown I had a lot of time on my hands and spent a fair bit of it playing the ukulele.

At the end of the piece I bring in a simple melody from Plaits - the melody is based on the notes produced by old-style ambulances - we heard quite a few ambulance sirens in the streets, especially at the start of the pandemic.


Hi ModLifeCrisis,

Oh wow! This is beautifully done, I love this track. I am going to listen this again so much to discover and to like here :-)

Hmm, it hangs now :-( I hope this is only temporarily.

Anyway, thank you very much for this great track and nice video as well! Kind regards, Garfield.
