That which offers no resistance

Post by mahler007 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 10:04 am

Like a couple other sequences I've posted here, this one is essentially the "synth part" of a larger piece which will also feature an SATB (or perhaps SSA) chorus, 2 percussionists, and double bass.

The whole piece will ultimately be 5 movements, each using different chapters from the Tao Te Ching for the text. I think it's going to clock in at about 30 minutes total.

As the synth part is essentially performed as a "composed" part, I've been developing a way to actually score it using 1 staff as a "control" staff that shows individual control movements (quantizer changes, keyboard pitches, filter sweeps, dynamic adjustments, etc.) and several other staves showing the musical results of those control changes. It's been kind of a neat process, and important as I would never remember how to perform this stuff otherwise. Hope you enjoy if you check it out.

I only know of one other modularist who writes some kind of performance score. It would be interesting to see what it looks like. When I have performed a fixed modular piece it has been entirely from memory.

Do post an update with choir and everything!

Terrific stuff, like oberdada I would be very interested to hear the "full" version if you manage to capture it :)

Thanks for the encouraging words, y'all. If I work hard and finish it by January, there's a good chance I can produce it in the spring. I'll be sure to post an update when the time comes. In the meantime, back to the salt mines...
