In the past I've made drones by putting Little Bits synth kits inside pianos with the sustain pedal held down by a heavy object. I was captivated by the ebb and flow of the resonances among the strings as I subtly changed the timbre of the tone being fed into the piano. It was fascinating to hear strings ringing out that weren't directly touching the mini speakers. Recently, I've been approximating this technique with my modular using physical modeling, specifically Mutable Instruments' Rings' audio input. I feel like I've only just scratched the surface of the subtle shifts possible with Rings, and am excited to explore more!
