The Disquiet Junto this week asks participants to share a recent technique 'figured out' in the production of music.
This isn't the most recent technique I've used in making music, that would probably be Live's audio-to-MIDI conversion that I think Ethan Hein has already discussed.
It's been about six months since I saw this technique on Tim Prebble's blog Music of Sound, in the excellent Detritus section.
The idea is to generate a piece by looping a series of ascending notes in E minor. I used this idea in my track Seabreeze.
For the piece recorded on glockenspiel this week, I've changed the formula to something closer to 4E2. I see something as I was loosely interpreting the tempo when recording and then manipulated one part further.
