DESCRIPTION


NOTE: the file was too big for the user
library; you can download it here:

www.inselmuse.com/reaktorrhea/randrum.zip

v2 (uploaded 2/11) has an improved gLobal sHaping zentrum.

generates crazed nonmetrical aperiodic
beats. i like to let it run, record,
and edit until i have a cool groove.

enjoy. :-)

"...and drummers such as Joey Baron" Indeed, exactly the realm/territory that 'struck' me also ;-)

Hmm, myself was intrigued by the dichotomy of technique vs. sound source. I've always wanted to throw an 8 pound mexican jumping bean into a Ludwig drum factory!

in terms of the samples 'fitting' the concept, i understand what you mean: taking fairly conventional drum sounds and abominating them like ranDrum does is perhaps confusing to the ear, foils expectations on many levels ... i LIKE the form/content confusion, it gets me interested. each to his or her own.

thanks chris. the 'beat' ranDrum creates is definitely unconventional ... it pretty much totally disregards pulse, meter, repetition. for me it sounds RIGHT, but i cut my musical teeth on early stockhausen and boulez and the serialists, so flows like ranDrum generates are second nature to me.

Hmn, i'm sorry, the results don't "impress" me, i still prefer 'sequenced' chaos in a more or less repetitive way, maybe it's also about the sound this ensemble creates and contains, these sounds somehow don't fit to the concept from my point of view. Anyways, i still need to thank you, Rick, a few thousand times for all the other wonderful creations you did.

glad you are liking phil. :-) there's nothing groundbreaking or even very sophisticated in the programming. but i had to work very very hard (days!) at getting a flow i liked. random, but musical (in a stockhausen sense).

hmm, quite interesting results. i can think of some other versions... such as a prepared piano (including some normal notes) a saxophone (including multi-phonics, slap-tongues and other alternative techniques) and a Double Bass (with pizz and bowed samples including alternative techniques)...and then you could have a random improv band. yes i like this, reminds me of Stockhausen's use of drums/percussion and drummers such as Joey Baron
