Unboxed – for percussion, bowed piano and manipulated voice in 10,15,and 5 edo

X 48 is a music / video montage using a Linnstrument, u-he’s Diva in 7 edo, Garritan Personal Orchestra, chamber orchestra present in 14 edo, Garritan Personal Orchestra concert grand piano in 21 edo – all images were taken and processed by me. Audio only.
Its a Queer Time, a setting of a poem written by Robert Graves and read by Pete Marchetto from librivox tuned in 22 edo, 11 edo, and 43 JI running on 8 different synths. The technology behind the audio is using Gestrument as a performance controller and transmitting its midi output over ethernet using rtpMIDI (thank you Tobias!!) as a Windows surrogate for Apple Bonjour – the end result is that I play the Gestrument on my iPad and Sonar sees the midi from it as a virtual midi controller. Then it is simply a matter of routing each midi channel to separate tracks each with a microtonal aware synthesizer [panned a bit uniquely] – the audio was then added, the midi tracks trimmed appropriately and then married to the video. Since the video and Librivox licenses are public domain by necessity my musical setting of these resources is public domain as well.
For Quincas Moriera – the long version of the music.

Poly Tuned Synth Collection uses the following:
Z3ta+ 2 Denny Genovese 24 – 28 harmonics w/ ribbon controller
absynth’s harmonic series w/ TC Data
aalto’s harmonic series w/ TC Data
albino 22 edo w/ TC Data
Xen FMTS 2 harmonics 12-24 w/ Linnstrument
This is mostly about being a study to learn using midi over wifi with toby bears rtpMIDI and TC-DATA
These pieces started life as a two track improvisation (one with ebow) on a 20 edo guitar that were treated with effects and manipulations. Then the result of this was used to extract midi via Melodyne Single track. This midi was then used to drive two instances of Z3TA+ 2.1 tuned to 10 edo. The synthesized tracks and original audio were then combined to create a polytuned version of the original.
This is an ambient music video in tribute to my Sound-in.org colleague Paul who has been experimenting with constrained aleatoric compositional techniques. This is the sound of my electric aeolian harp combined with time lapse video. The harp is a constrained aleatoric device because I tune the string but the wind plays the strings which generates harmonics of the strings.
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.
one hard act to follow is a mixed tuning (12, 19 edos) electroacoustic ambient piece. Best listened to loud.
