About the work
Maureen Tucker’s drumming with the Velvet Underground reduced the groove to the most basic stream of pulses. Unchanging and direct it was the perfect foundation for the band’s sonic adventures. Starting with the same idea, MT Modulation is a stream of 912
quavers at 130 beats per minute with no other note values and no gaps. It uses only whole tone scales, chromatic scales and notes chosen randomly by the players.
