man… if you watch that gif while listening to your post it’s a truly excellent experience. very nice work
Don’t use the grid to guide you! Do it by feel!! Don’t be inescapable!
And of course you can use a metronome. There is no rule that says you cant.
It’s just hard to ignore, cuz like, the time markers are always there.
close your eyes then
omg hilarious (bfk cat gif + track)
congrats on the win @Tsachi, very interesting ruleset, excited to beats
How’s everyone’s beat coming?
it’s hard man
that ABACDABACADACAB structure isn’t the easiest for me, but it’s interesting work
I got the structure all ironed out gotta go back and make it gooder. Picked a slower bpm so it’s sitting at like 6 min rn lol
Hey there. I made a recording yesterday, and hope to upload sometime later today. It’s not excaclty a dancefloor killer, though
After fiddling around with a bunch of eccentric tools for too long I hereby forfeit this movement. I disliked every tactic I attempted. Here’s some gristle off the bottom of the pan.
i deleted my earlier post cause soundcloud was acting weird and i couldn’t get player to show up once I uploaded the new version shrug
I like the calm, soothing qualities of this, and it has some lovely detailed sound design - with authentic sounding IDM vibes as well.
SInce the deadline is formally behind us, I think I’ll just go a head and vote for this one
I’m voting for yours lol. But seriously I reallly like it. It’s got a great vibe to it, although I’m not quite hearing the convoluted song structure.
I guess tsachi’s rules were to hard for him.
I admit the changes are minimal.
“A” has the flangered triplet high hat, “B” has the sharp off-beat high hat and a “clap/whip” like sound, “C” has organ noodles and “D” has the “siren” solo.
The “bassline” that goes on throughout the whole thing also has the form inherent in it.
I made 4 different very short “single oscillation waveform” samples to use as synth tones/oscillators, - and named them A, B, C and D - and then, for the bassline sound, I arranged those in the “A, B, A, C, A, B, D, C, A” configuration as a sort of slightly longer “complex waveform”.
hell yea man… good thinking.
By the way, I just reread my other post and I guess I was extra ADD today because when I said “I guess tsachi’s rules were to hard for him.” this half developed turd of a sentence was intended to be a troll @Tsachi for making the hard rules and not doing a submission
oh whoops I thought I made the deadline the 16th for some reason… I’ll upload mine today
