The story

Here is an evolving pad clarinet instrument – played by my mum – Helen!

Designed to create variating textures and be able to introduce layers over time.

It was all recorded with an Aston Origin mic pushed as close to the instrument as possible.
As a result, the breath is audible in the soft layer and you can hear the overtones changing as the breathing gradually changes.

To add the layers drag the symbols up and down.

Given time constraints and my moving to Latvia, I wasn’t able to make the instrument more comprehensive but I will return to it and update it in future.
Also, there is another evolving reed instrument in the pipeline!

P.S I’d like to thank Obolig on the discord server for his infinite generosity and help!
