The Light

More music by my ambitronic alter ego, bitfield. This was made some time in the late 1990s, using a Yamaha QY-300 hardware sequencer (pictured). It was a nice machine which I kept for many years, and wrote a lot of music with. Including this piece, featuring steel drums, sitar, synth flute, Hammond organ, marimba, and General MIDI patch no. 124 (‘Birdsong’). I remember I made an interesting rhythm break (at 01:51) by double-tracking the drum loop and time-shifting it forward by one MIDI clock, creating a phased effect and a satisfyingly fat kick drum sound.
