Patchable 0004

New York Modular Society is ready to release the hounds of hell during the October Patchable challenges. This month we cast spells and chant dark incantations to call forth shadows and demons.  

For this patchable you must create one sound that represents the zombies. Then build a track around the zombie sound that invokes the sensation of dread and doom from a zombie apocalypse.

You are not restricted from using other gear, but modular synths must be used.  Employ the dark art of sonic manipulation to strike fear into the minds of listeners.

HOW TO PLAY

THIS PATCHABLE RUNS FROM OCT 3rd – OCT 14TH

  1. Create an original piece of music following the above challenge.
  2. Include the suffix PATCHABLE-0004 in the track title.  A completed track title would look like this: Spiral Vortex PATCHABLE-0004.
  3. Upload your track to soundcloud by end of day, Monday October 14th.
  4. Include a link to your track and patch notes in the comments below.

Autumnal Equinox

The third installment of Patchable coincidentally aligns with the beginning of Fall, the third season of the year. To celebrate fall, your challenge is to compose a track that primarily use threes.  This means 3, 6, 9 or 12 step sequences.  Triads, tritones and triplets are encouraged. Three chord progressions are welcomed.  Three oscillator synths are adored. 

 In NYMS usual fashion, you are not restricted from other tactics, strategies or equipment.  However, modular synths must be used.  The use of threes should be obvious to the listener.

Underwater Evolution

What would music sound like if humans evolved underwater? Answer this question by making a track using any tools at your disposal. The one rule is that modular synths must be included. Feel free to share your process in the comments. We would love to hear how each of you interprets this idea.
