Auto Counterpoint number 2: classical piano and echoes

Posted by admin on October 12, 2018 – 16:01

This is a solo piano performance by DD.

This track comes from an unreleased series I created a while ago titled Auto-Counterpoint where a single melody superimposed itself by the use of very long delays w/ infinite decay and Revox tape machines.

So I wrote a melody with some variations (melodic changes, permutations, octave shifts, rhythmic changes) played the whole thing a couple of times feeding 4 or 5 delay or revox lines that recorded to additional tracks.
In the end I’ve got a 10 minute mess of 5 tracks with the same measures repeated over themselves, a pandemonium of repetitions and superimpositions.

Then I made edits, creative use of the delete button and got a reasonable track.

As with the other auto-counterpoint pieces, I performed this in 10 minutes, and edit took several days to finish….
