    Contributed to this week's Disquiet Junto - the objective was to make a piece of music using a recording of vibrating plasma waves taken by the Voyager 2 spacecraft as it passed out of our solar system.

    I took the sample, brought it into my modular synth, looped it, and FM'ed the output with a sequenced oscillator. I set up a patch where I could 'play' the sample so that I would have hands-on control. I did a few takes to get it (mostly) right, I'm manually adjusting frequencies and the number of steps in the sequence which are allowed to play.
