Often seen as "old analog synth malfunction", drift, or the property of analog oscillators to change pitch in a seemingly uncontrollable or unwanted fashion, is a magical musical occurrence.
While life is subject to constant tides of oscillation in (at times) conflicting patterns of energy, we, electronic musicians, seem to seek comfort in predictable wave patterns.
Our oscillators do not "drift".
Our music lacks "soul".
Imperfections and idiosyncrasies are part of life, yet very rarely part of our musical interpretation of life. Why? Does perfection bring security and comfort? Is perfection even "real"?
Tomorrow, I'm going to program Omnisphere patches with pitch drift.
Ordum ad chaos it is.
