The first installment of a new campaign called The Golden Hour Series. The goal of the series is to take one synthesizer and create an entire tape of ambient music centered around the strength and aesthetic of the instrument. This album was made entirely with a Casio SK-1. The sound is lo-fi and dirty. at times harsh. The factory sounds were used and ran through stompboxes to create huge drones, while the broken sampler input was utilized for making arrhythmic loops and textures. To find the pleasant melodies in this piece you have to dig through the dirt.

Stay tuned for more installments of The Golden Hour Series, including Roland Jx-8p, Arturia MicroBrute, Mutable Instruments Clouds, and more.
