Yeah I wonder if it’s opacity is a bit less enticing than the quality of the work deserves. It’s a sick track. I could imagine a clock sync hooked up and you have a lived set tool.
It’s a result of thinking about resets, pendulums and the illusory, weaving sequences they produce. Pendulums seem to be implemented in many different ways but this way, it keeps it’s sequence length with the groove. The algorithm is avoiding repeating notes on the pendulum and on odd numbered inner cycle lengths, skips a note on the way back. It seems to work in producing some characteristic illusive grooves. I would like to get in to the detail with sequencing, subtly tweaking things and getting more complex but it’s not really practical right now within audulus, the way I’m envisioning, not optimized… just yet. Perhaps I’m showing lack of experience here. The Turing was handy to mix it with the regular beats which works well, “hooked on” beats is not really what I want to produce but it’s a good exploration of all the weaves it does, majors, minors. It’s an exploration really and learning to build, it;s all work in progress…
I’ll be getting kitted out more musically soon, am lacking in that area at mo, I’d like to post something musical at some point.Never thought I’d be considering getting a Mac as well!
Experimenting with the Inner and outer cycle lengths is a good way to see what’s going on here.
Imagine we had a tool like Traktor but for mixing patches…in other words, if you could run two patches in parallel then you could mix them. It makes me wonder about alternative mixing methods. Makes me think that morphing could be utililized in place of, say, EQing when blending tracks (patches).
