'Swarm' was created from multiple evolving layers of e-bow / sustainer guitar drone notes - a swarm of drones.

The notes make up a chordal tonal centre - a low B root * / stacked 5ths chord.

Regarding the notes themselves, I played multiple instances of the same notes with vibrato to create single note 'ensembles'. I also used notes without vibrato as well, to contrast.

On 'Swarm' I was experimenting with the differing position dependent harmonic overtones that you can get from the e-bow (relative to the pickup) and the harmonic mode options on the sustainer guitar.

(* I used a 7 string sustainer guitar and 5 string bass for the Low B).


released November 3, 2020
Played, composed and produced by Pete Kelly AKA Igneous Flame at Nimbus Studios UK 2020, LS-23.

Thanks to Denise, Ruby and Achromus.
