Disquiet Junto Project 0070: 2 Tones, 3 Beats
This week’s project is a minimalist enterprise. It is an attempt to probe the place where beats and tones merge.
A rather on-edge semitone interval (C and C#) predicated a fairly “unhappy” piece. The two tones were created from bass guitar and recorder. Each was looped and given a little distortion and granular delay respectively. There was much of an obvious pulse, so the rhythm is a bit more implied than actual. The hits were all derived from random percussive objects hit with the end of a drum stick: bass drum=pop shield, glass=”high hat”, leather wallet=midrange percussive hit)
Overall this was a fun task … I would have probably preferred the limitation of two concurrent tones over a longer period than two tones only over one minute.
Title/Tag: Include the term “disquiet0070-2tones3beats” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
