The Wilderness is an analog-voiced delay with up to 1000 milliseconds of delay time. The Wilderness offers feedback, mix, and modulation controls that are global to its two modes: tap and ramp. Tap mode offers tap tempo functionality with four available subdivisions. Ramp mode allows the user to set a slow and fast delay time, and accelerate between the two, creating a pitch-shifting effect.
The Wilderness is a tribute to my Blackfeet (Amsskaapipiikuni) heritage. The Blackfeet were well known for their stories that were handed down from generation to generation. My great-great-grandmother, Mary Ground, translated many of these Blackfeet stories to English in her published book, Grass Woman Stories. Children in the Wilderness, is among one of the translated stories and features a brother and sister who get lost in the wilderness. While trying to find their way out of the wilderness and return to their loved ones, the siblings fight to overcome unexpected adversaries and situations. The Wilderness artwork features a turning point in the story, in which the buffalo (iinnii) transports the siblings across the river away from danger and brings them one step closer to escaping the wilderness.
