This is my first post to the forum. I wanted to get some music up to introduce myself. I am certainly looking forward to getting into some of critiques and discussions.
I am primarily a drummer and generally work with improvisation. In my process, rhythm and texture usually share a level playing field with melody and harmony. The two pieces I have selected here are built from multi-tracked layers of spontaneous reactions to a preferred theme or mode. Some of my tracks are completely improvised, and I adhere to the Thelonious Monk "one take only" rule. The first track is an example of this. The parameters here are the chosen key and the synth patches that I created from a sine wave. The second track is based on a premeditated "bass" line. Five one-take improvisations were layered with synth and piano.
I have started to explore tonality and harmony more and a friend of mine suggested this particular composers forum. I am genuinely interested in all sorts of feedback, including production values, as psychoacoustics are also a new interest for me. Thank you all for any feedback!
