4 new pieces with Noatikl

Postby dongolian » Fri Sep 21, 2012 4:50 pm

Hi all

I've posted 4 new pieces on soundcloud, all made exclusively with Noatikl, my Roland E70, my Kawai K4 and, occasionally, my antediluvian Kawai K1...

The first is a Noatikl reworking of a piece I composed in the 1980s with Steinberg Pro 24 and the arithmetical function for a music therapist seeking relaxation music!

That version (called Relax and Decompose) lasted half an hour. Fortunately, the new one only takes 4 min 7 s (but is much better).

It involved a lot of scripting and was great fun. I actually recorded different parts on different audio tracks and then merged the best ones from 4 takes.

The Countless Ways To Love : http://soundcloud.com/nubis-dongolian/the-countless-ways-to-love-1

Then there are two pieces made from what is basically the same Noatikl file but with very different sounds.

The first, Family Matters, is a piano piece based on the names of myself, my wife and my children - Someone's post elsewhere on the forum about generating music from text made me try it.

It's actually three Noatikl takes put end to end with minor changes (mainly tempo and Mutation rate on the patterns - which is increased with each take).

The second piece from this Noatikl file (slower and shorter with a very different sound) is called No Man's Land : http://soundcloud.com/nubis-dongolian/no-mans-land

Finally, a short jazz-rockish piece based on the first names of my mother father self and siblings (it was such fun the first time that I thought I'd try the 'method' again ;-))

The fact that the bass (which is the part built from the names) very rarely plays the root note gives it a nice jazzy feel without too much effort. It's a live take in wonderful Mono.

It's called Across The Wolds To Noland : http://soundcloud.com/nubis-dongolian/across-the-wolds-to-noland

I hope you enjoy them or at least find them interesting from a Noatikly point of view...

By replying to Oldlibmike (whose work I recommend), I knocked this off the top, so this is just a shameless bump to put it back up there

Hi dongolian

I have listened to all 4 and I must say they are very nice - lovely the way you change key in places. Thanks for sharing!
