Before this session was recorded I had begun to realize that the analude’s just scale, sliding notes, and foot volume control could be combined to make unusual sounds. Here I am beginning to explore how these sounds interact with each other, aided by a reverb/delay unit. This exploration continues in a different way in Part 2 (track 10 in Volume 2).
