This is how Night Mode records start sometimes

  1. Piece of gear (Dreadbox Utopia in this case, the orange thing)
  2. List of things it can do musically (additional things will be discovered in the course of #3 below)
  3. 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.
