Fake News for electronics and electric Bphlen-Pierce guitar

Purple Fog (BP-JI)

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Purple Fog is a microtonal collaboration between Bill Newbold and myself – Bill provided the midi performance and I arranged it with synthesizers tuned to Bohlen-Pierce non-tempered JI tuning.

I can’t remember where I pinched the picture from – thank you photographer!

This is not art.

Recomposition Using Celemony’s Melodyne Editor

Sunday, January 15th, 2017


Best viewed at the highest resolution available. The native video is in 1080p

By using Celemony’s Melodyne Editor I rearrange the notes within a droning sample from my DIY electric aeolian harp. The tuning is nominally Bohlen-Pierce (stock with Melodyne) but the nature of the aeolian harp means additional pitches are present.
