  • Hi Riza,

    I suppose this is an experimental piece? I experienced it as a hearing test, searching the bounderies of human hearing. I'm a bit older and some of the highest pitches became somewhat misty. (I hope that my headphones are not the cause...)

    A nice surprise it is, but somewhat fatiguing to listen to because of the onesided use of the hearing spectrum. Maybe you should add some 'resting pauses' in the middle audition scale. Maybe it's not too good for the ears either... But of course every experiment is welcome!

    • Hi Jos,

      True it was an experiment.  The idea was to make electronic music with Windows10

      and a standard computer.

       

      I attended Stanford-CCRMA lab summer course in 1991.  Chowning was still there. 

      There, I learned that an electronic music must be based on frequencies rather than

      regular pitches.  

       

      I found out that Jfugue synthesizes frequencies by 'bending' MIDI sounds.  There are

      some nice examples on the internet about these.  So, I used Netbeans - JAVA and

      Jfugue to synthesize frequencies.  Using JAVA gave me the possibility to write

      programs to compose electronic music. 

       

      This is the same as I had seen at CCRMA - Heinrich Taube's LISP package.  So,

      I wrote a small library of JAVA programs to create specific frequency patterns with

      limited randomness as a beginning.

       

      This piece also coincided with my effort on my further ear training.  I remembered

      a warning of a teacher about ear training recently.  He had warned that frequency

      differences between regular pitches change according to register specially at high

      pitches.  I found out that if I practice at C6 - C8 I become much better at C3 - C6. 

      So, this piece also has a purpose of ear training as you have noticed something

      going on...

       

      I intend to write some more electronic music heeding your warning about register

      balance.

       

      Thank you for your interest.

       

      Al
