Disquiet Junto project, my experimental contributions April 2018

Posted by admin on April 25, 2018 – 23:24

Sine waveforms from these synths:
Emu Vintage Keys
Ultra Analog by AAS

Vinyl noise sampled from my personal collection.

Created on a rush, March 31st 2018 in Paris for:
Disquiet Junto Project 0326: Wave Turntable
The challenge: Compose a short piece of music using only sine waves and the surface sounds of vinyl played on a turntable. Those two sources are inspirations for the Clay/Fischer exhibit.

CCCXXVII was created for Disquiet Junto Project 0327: Time Zoned
Engage with the number 327. Compose a piece of music with three separate and distinct through-lines. Think of each of the three lines as an individual voice. The important thing is that the three through-lines occur in your composition simultaneously. One voice should be in 3/4 time. One should be in 2/4 time. And one should be in 7/4 time.

Thanks Marc, Ethan and Nate for an excellent, inspiring challenge.

I created 3 grooves:

Upright basses(x3 bowed) playing a 2/4 tango groove
DX7 playing my favourite 7/4 gimmick (I used it all over the place since 1988)
Lead Saw synth playing in ¾

Each accompanied by a drum loop using the same sounds but in the matching time signature.

I played separately over a click track you can hear (a string sample and an arpeggiator)

Then I did a mash up of the 3 to create polyphony. It is complex, progressive and a bit chaotic but was a lot of fun.

It goes like this:

3/4 + 2/4
3/4 + 7/4
7/4 + 4/4
7/4 + 4/4 + 3/4



Created Friday 6th April 2018 in Paris, France
