Wurliscape represents the next evolution of Optigan music program disc that began with Pianoscape and Vibrascape. Instead of being a disc for playing melodies, you’ll discover that Wurliscape turns your Optigan into an ambient arpeggiator using the sounds of a vintage electric piano. In addition, we’ve used previously unreleased drum and percussion loops from the original Optigan master tapes along with newly created bass lines.
The keyboard features a series of simple two-note rhythmic patterns that can be combined to create complex arpeggiated chords. We created these patterns using only the white keys on the piano, or in other words, F-Lydian mode (C-Ionian mode). This arrangement fits well on the Optigan’s F-to-F keyboard range and ensures that most combinations will produce a harmonically consonant composite pattern. We invite you to explore the vast harmonic possibilities of Wurliscape.
