In The Garden (Golden Ratio tuned harp solo)

July 27th, 2015

Hanging_Gardens_of_Babylon

In The Garden feature’s Jake Freivald’s Golden Ratio tuning. Taking a comment from him that he viewed this tuning to be more suitable to melody than harmony I tried to stay mostly in the realm of melodic development though towards the end I do get a bit of harmonization in.

Two SQ1 Piano Tracks in 6 and 18 edo

July 21st, 2015

Military_laser_experimentras

Two SQ1 Piano Tracks in 6 and 18 edo (though 18 encompasses 6) is a polytuned, polyrhythmic experimentation with performing a Korg SQ-1 arpeggiator in real time at purposefully conflicting tempos as an experiment. The two instances of pianoteq are panned a bit left and right and are mono to keep the lines clear to the ear. A 27 page time reduced read-along-scoredatura is here.

Inversion Dialations – Synthesizers in Orwell

Here I present a collaboration with Bill Newbold who composed the midi part which I realized in Orwell tuning with a Korg MS2000. There is rumor of a video version using Google’s Deep Dream which is left as an exercise for the reader to find.

The Barn Dreams Deeply (19 edo, Linnstrument performance)

July 17th, 2015

163262 The Barn Dreams Deeply – Google’s Deep Dream interpretation of my original below. Of note is the Victorian scene on the far upper right, the stick people on the rook, the teen playing football on the bottom middle and the dog graffiti on the left wall and below it a pine wood derby car.

The Barn Dreams Deeply is taken from a project I was working on in 19 edo but became unhappy with. This one Linnstrument track driving two instances of Absynth seem worth keeping around.

Balanced is an edited improvisation for pianoteq and midi controller tuned to a file that claims to be Michael Harrison’s tuning for his work Revelation (which I highly recommend). An 8th note follow-along reduced score PDF is provided.

22″ Wind Gong Audio Spectrum Manipulation With Animated Visualization

July 5th, 2015

The video is of the base 22″ Wuhan gong hit after 35x Paulstretch with the noise reduction on. What remains are the isolated gong tones buried in the crash and the drawn out “hum” tones. Caution – there are some very loud, high pitches. Best viewed at the highest resolution you can manage.

With the gong tones in Melodyne I was able to retune them to 22 edo porcupine with magic 7th variant (below) – for my taste I used Melodyne to remove the highest “hum” note which I disliked.

I put a GK-3 hex pick up on my 19 edo guitar – what follows are three demonstration pieces that rely on the pitch interpretation of the GP-10 processor. My overall impression that this was successfully accomplished as you can clear hear places where I pushed a decidedly non-12 equal note(s) through the system.
