Zack Cart replied to Liz Armour's discussion "sonic sketches"
"Liking those A LOT. They're definitely 'out' but they have enough continuity and enough of a basic structure for each that they remain engaging, and I think would for all but the most oblivious audiences.
My only criticism, is that in a few places…"

"Managed to code a bunch more of the piece, there's now about twice as much material. If anyone has any feedback, I'm all ears!"

Zack Cart replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"I do plan on getting considerably farther from the overtone series, but as this is (as planned, at least) only an introduction to a much longer piece, I wanted to keep it fairly "in," both so as to be able to stray farther and farther, and also to…"

Nick Thabit replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"Zach, heard the new(er) version, quite improved; the sounds are much more clear, liking the 'LFO' effects. If a constructive criticism would be accepted, more freedom in the tones generated would be good. It seems there's a reluctance to stray from…"

roger stancill replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"Hi Zack, I'm not really very familiar with this 'sound ' as a musical genre,
    but to my ear it's simply ' special effects ' and doesn't do much for me
    so to speak. Keep working at it and maybe it will lead to something
    unique and…"

Zack Cart replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"I've managed to re-code all the current material with some veeerry subtle, smooth randomized variations to pitch, timbre, and amplitude. Took some planning and busy-work, let me tell you! I'll have to restart my computer to get a clean take, but…"

Zack Cart replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"That's a pretty good angle of attack, using a noise generator to modulate a periodic signal. I just don't know how to ode it. YET.Regarding long notes: long pitches and harmonies are the reason I enjoy this type of music, so I wouldn't ditch them. I…"

Donya Quick replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"It's been bugging me, but I'm not very skilled at coding, so I haven't figured out a good way to introduce irregularity and uncertainty into the pitches yet, short of coding infinitesimal pitch and amplitude variations, etc. I'm lazy enough to hope…"

"Not much I can constructively add about a piece like this one, but whatever was happening at around 1:35 to 1:40, and then again at around 1:51 to 2:00, I really enjoyed."

"Nifty piece. I like the gradual changes such as between 1:10 and 1:20."

Zack Cart replied to René Torenstra's discussion Cheremule - for guitar and piano
"Hey, V-I has been the basis of Western Music since before chords were a thing, since before anyone realized there was such a thing as a V-I. No reason to drop them suddenly, just 'cause some guys want to sound 'out.' Not everyone needs to be…"

"Everything I'm doing is just straight up single sine wave generation. Additive synthesis with Pure Data. (It's like Max, but open source.)
So, there are no samples, and not what most people would consider synths either. Every sound is just a…"

Greg Brus replied to Zack Cart's discussion Intro to new spectral(ish) piece. Working title "Green Glass"
"What source material (samples / synths / whatever) are you using? Spectral music is always fun, but your piece is basically killed by all the long notes being extremely lifeless."

Zack Cart replied to Mohammad W.Alsaad's discussion Wild Surroundings - Orchestral mess that need opinions
"I've got to go with the crowd on this one.The orchestration actually seems relatively tame, to me. It's a great track thus far, but nothing in it makes me go, "Oh, odd, I wasn't expecting that..." This is partly due to the consistent rhythmic under…"
