- Piece of gear (Dreadbox Utopia in this case, the orange thing)
- List of things it can do musically (additional things will be discovered in the course of #3 below)
- Patch up something from the list and start messing around until a piece emerges
If history is any guide, spontaneously discovered sounds will add between half again as many and double the patches on the initial list.
I haven’t started this record yet, and I’m in no rush to. Plenty going on, and I’m trying to decide if this is a collaboration or a solo jawn. It’ll be waiting for me when I’m ready.
