"Thinking" Experimental FM Drum Sequencer. Concept for Shape design & Color scheme based control.
Syntheasthesia is an ongoing project utilizing the idea of randomly "thinking" patterns to control rhythm and melody. At the current state there is only one pattern that self-generates quantized patterns without repetition. This FM drum sequence outputs to an envelope follower that is controlling its delay time. Right now its in an infantile stage and sounds rather fxcked but I wanted to upload my first piece anyway to see the response and hopefully some constructive criticism. Synaesthesia is a neurological phenomenon where thought (ex. numbers and music) are perceived as shape and/or color. The original concept of this ensemble is working towards integrating shape design and color scheme to control these "intelligent" sequences (which would actually be a sort of logic formula with some influence of random/probability). Listen to the mp3 links for examples, the second one is cycling/merging through initial snapshots. Thnx, jimmy
