This is the THIRD instalment of the DRIFT series of instruments.

Simple at the front, complex behind the curtain. The business end is just 4 large knobs:  Grist, ADSR, Morph and Space combine multiple functions for uncomplicated and intuitive sound design.  A minimal interface beneath which lurks a maximalists desire to warp, bend and squash millions of new sounds into the aether.

DRIFT 003 is woven entirely from dubious AI vocal generators and a smattering of mouth derived organic recordings, weird and impossible singing styles made real and then mangled and edited into 11 separate, 4 octave multi velocity articulations.

Long, slow evolving choirs of weasels/angels/polyglots, chaotic gibbering, beautiful polyrhythmic overtone singing can morph into chuntering keys, chattering drones or muttering basses with nearly human character packed into every note.

Obviously the genre bending oddness of White Lotus composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer comes to mind as a touchstone, and with the aid of an arp this is a very handy Cristobal machine, but it is also so much more. Hold a single note and move the modwheel, and you will instantly understand.
