The swarm of the Nanobots is approaching. This micrtonal mayhem is an exploration of swarming notes and joyous distortion that was inspired by the Dewanatron Swarmatron instrument. I performed and recorded this in one real-time pass with no edits on an Elektron Octatrack.

Performance and Production Notes
Inspired by the Swarmatron
This piece was inspired by the Dewanatron Swarmatron (http://www.dewanatron.com/instruments.php?page=swarmatron).
“The Swarmatron was created to produce eight tones tuned approximately to one note, each tone slightly different in pitch to produce a complex and natural choral effect.
