Yesterday I made the mistake of over-recording our jam with the monome. We used as our sample a song I composed for my music box on Day 110. I basically pressed record and my buddy Jeff and I went to town on the monome. Two hours later I had a lot to sift through. So for todays creative thing I went through and selected a few highlights from the jam.
I tried to make a song out of it but I realized that there was just too much to go through so all I really got accomplished was a basic cutdown. I tried adding beats to it but nothing seemed to complement it for very long and I kind of liked just hearing the music box solo.
It’s pretty chopped sounding because it’s condensing an hour or so into a couple minutes. We traveled far and stopped in some very different places.
My favorite part is the second half. I was messing around with what’s called “inner loops”. MLR has a function where if you press two buttons in the same row consecutively it will loop only that span of the audio file. Also, if you press the last button in a row and then the first button you get a very short loop of just the first button’s sound repeating. It may sound confusing but you’ll hear it right away as a very different sound. It reminds me of a Phillip Glass or Steve Reich song.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy!
