I bought my OT mkI for my 40th birthday. It’s been a 1.5 years since taking possession. (Or it possessed me?) I felt pretty good about my knowledge and was generally satisfied with my musical creations (noise)I have been making. I was thinking about possibly selling it because I thought maybe I had reached a point where I could move on to other processes, other gear (so many great options these days!)
However, I had a hunch that I had not explored all the hidden corners of the other realm. Would one more trip to the other side really show me anything new? I had already looked out across the great expanse of oblivion, even creeped up to the edge of nothingness and gazed into the endless abyss.
I reread Merlins guide. I went back to the good book (OT users guide). I searched my soul. Then, I tripped and fell head first into the most creative, experimental 2 hour journey of sampling, scenes, parts, (what’s a part again) and other cult secrets I am not at liberty to discuss. Oh, and I recorded the whole thing too which is like seeing a video of yourself in the grip of an appallingly chemical binge. No recollection of the events that transpired. I can’t even recognize what I used to look like. I can’t go back to the way things were…
You can have my OT now. Follow the trail of blood and pry it from my cold dead hands
