Dag2099's music thread

Kudos. Are you listening a lot to Caterina Barbieri? Cause I’m reminded…


#22

Just to alienate everyone even more here is an “experimental” (i.e. unlistenable but surprisingly predictable) piece based around using P2V and FM synthesis. Heed the thumbnail:


I’ve been working on something a little more listenable which will be along tomorrow.

Some of this sounds like material Stockhausen could have used. For a Stockhausen style piece,

In my opinion, the main challenge with this kind of music is to organize it in such a way that it is intuitively understandable for the human brain and communicates a “message” to the listener (i.e. something the humain brain can interpret sucessfully). In the case of Stockhausen, often explanations are needed so that the attention of the listener is guided, which -again in my opinion- goes against the idea of music being a universal language.


#24

As promised here is some ambient stuff. I don’t know how to get rid of the pops.


#25

Thanks for the links. I’m relatively niave about electronic music so it’s useful stuff. I did space out a little bit during the first half of the lecture you linked though. I may have to watch it again.


#26

More elevator style music:

I can’t tell if I’m getting better at the music but the logo is one of my worst.
Edit: I was so appalled by my last thumbnail that i redid it. now I feel better


#27

A phasing patch from last year:

Why is it called “Dexoverstop”? Well, uh, that’s an excellent question. I really have no idea. Thanks for bringing it up.


#28

Another piece. Started out trying to get the hang of Audible Resonator. I’m still not sure I get what the “strum” input actually does but I’m also not sure I care.
This piece is a little more abstract than my other more recent stuff. I think the way I’m developing pieces recently (like in the last couple of weeks) is workable but not perfect. I start adding sound sources until I like what I’ve got and then use ASAF-8 and Gate-Seq-64 to control what’s actually playing at any given time. At this point I’m going, predominantly, by feel as to what I bring in and out but I’d like to have a more considered approach.
Enjoy (hopefully):

The strum input is for strumming (hitting) the (virtual) string of the resonator, which is it’s main use, I believe. Try this: A slow trigger or gate into the strum input, no input to the “in” port, play around with the knobs.


#30

Thanks. What I didn’t realize is that strum only works in certain modes. It relates to your polyphony settings, so when I plugged something into it and it did nothing I just didn’t think it worked. This is why we RTFM.


#31

Finally managed to get another Patches video done. This one is most of my patches streamed during September of 2018.


If you want me to do more with a particular patch then just put the timecode for it below and I’ll see what I can do.
I also did a vcp-26 entry:

and a small example to illustrate pitch stacking:

(Lars Bjerregaard) #32

That’s great dag!


#33

70’s sounding synth ambient pop (or something):

Somewhere in the process of getting it recorded the main synths don’t sound as good. Annoying.


(Lars Bjerregaard) #34

That’s very nice dag, I like it.


#35

I’m doing these nightly ASMR streams on my Twitch channel and a couple of nights ago I came up with this:

Please excuse the pretentious name. Also, here is my entry for vcp-27:

Suggestions, feedback and boundless praise are all accepted. (As are Subscriptions on Youtube).

Liking this Amiable one a lot. its super chill and does all kinds of interesting things, nice work!


#37

I decided a while ago that doing stream highlights videos was a tremendous amount of work for relatively little gain. So instead of that I do these “Patches” videos where I just go through most of the patches that I constructed in a given month. This one is from February of this year. The weird video corruption at the beginning is deliberate:

Feedback, subscriptions, follows (on twitch.tv/dag2099) and fatuous breakdancing are all appreciated.


#38

It’s starting to get a bit compulsive, this need to share rack. Here’s my latest journey into phasing:


As ever feedback, subscriptions , Twitch follows and “Jig Jams” are welcome.

Nice experiments Dag
