Disquiet Junto 0318 Linear Training



The Disquiet Junto this week asks for a composition drawn from a single tone.

At first I was challenged trying to think of a tone, then it took a few attempts to find one I liked.

After a day I settled on a video of my son playing a concrete marimba-like instrument outside the Questacon.

In Live I looped the F note, which was a bit shorter than the five seconds recommended.

I explored pitching it and shifting the loops to play at various intervals, as well as gating the recording.

Before long I'd developed a simple melody that grew as loops joined it.

Below you can hear where the tone came from.
