Treated Chord (a new Disquiet Project)
Disquiet Junto Project 0227: Treated Chord
A new track for the Disquiet Junto. Very rapidly done with what I had to hand: a guitar and an iPad with Borderlands Granular running on it.
I recorded the single notes from one of my favourite chords (with many uses): Em7#5 … or at least that is what the chord calculator told me it was.
The first 30 secs or so of the track is the individual notes “played” with the Borderlands Granular engine one at a time. The rest of the track is playing around with various settings to build an ambient wash.
Record a piece of music in which what changes is the treatment of the notes that comprise a single chord.
Step 1: Choose a chord, any chord.
Step 2: Make a list of the notes that the chord is comprised of.
Step 3: Record each of the notes of the chord as a separate track.
Step 4: Create a piece of music in which each of those tracks plays from start to finish, and that as they play those tracks are manipulated individually (echo, texture, effects, relative volume, etc.).
This project is inspired by the tape-cassette music of Amulets, aka Randall Taylor of Austin, Texas.
