Intersection of Waves (The Monotony Mix #1)



 Genre: Experimental

Get Flash to see this player.

As you can see from the title, this mix is the first of a series, experimenting with a theme and then, in the second and other mixes that are coming, moving both with and against the original theme. Hopefully as the theme progresses I will move from experimental through Ambient to Classical, or through Classical to Ambient or maybe both. Who knows?? I don't!!

This piece was put together using multiple instances of the free version of NI Kore. God, I've got to get me one of the real ones!!! The sounds are so rich.

This mix, as it's experimental and the first, is gritty, but the top theme keeps, in my opinion, the whole effect from being harsh on the ear.

Let me know what you think.

You sure are into the sawtooth waveform. It is a bit biting, and the bell sound over the top helps with that, but perhaps a bit of modulation on that main theme wave, to something a bit softer, and then back to the gritty sound at the end.
Ah - I see that you go back to work tomorrow. Is that theme the sound of angst over the end of your vacation?
I look forward to your upcoming developments of this theme!

Hi Kristyjo.....
I hear what you'res saying about the contents. I will try variations of both sound and rhythm over the coming months. There are literally (or musically) infinite possibilities so we'll see/hear what happens next.

The references that I used were all just references, descriptive words of how I felt the piece effected me. Sadly no holidays left to take, until Christmas, and I'm looking forward to the break, for sure.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

Take care.

Hi Kenta......
I too am very happy with doing the Ambient music that I produce. It's one of my favourite genres.

I read in the comments for your last piece about you spending money on music software. I think that you've made a great choice in what you've bought. You'll have a great deal of fun with these music-making tools.

Take care.

I don't know...
...what I am commenting on, Paul. The "sound" is pleasant enough, but I don't have a "context" into which to drop the sounds. I suppose this could be the backdrop for some sort of film, as many of your inventions are. Like KJ, I find it a little grating...even the bells are somewhat harsh to my ears. I am not saying it is unpleasant...just...well, maybe somewhat monotonic. Does this "go" anywhere? That's a good question to ask. Or do you intend just "sound" for sound's sake? (Don't know if my musing is at all helpful.) I am just wondering about development.

Hi Paul.....
Your musings are very apt and appropriate in my opinion. They state my thoughts just about perfectly with respect to this piece and where it is and where it could go.

I could do better in a reply by just say 'All of the above' to yours, Kenta's and Kristyjo's comments.

The sky is the limit my friend and only a limit if I go without a space suit and oxygen!!!

Take care.

Hi Daniel.......
Vangelis speaks awe and magic to me so if this mix gave you a hint of a idea that it sounded alike then I can rest easy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.
