So weit wie möglich

By Fred und Luna on February 10, 2016 10:45 pm

When starting the song I had the idea to write something very compact, very close, very dense.  A song that would be captured in a cube with the name "Länge mal Breite mal Höhe" (Length x width x height). Written in a fixed time:
1 hour, 1 minute and 1 second - another (OuLiPo kind of) use of constraints as a means of triggering ideas and inspiration. I set the alarm clock and immediately stopped recording after the preset time. Then I changed my mind and decided to free the captured song and give it another 1 hour, 1 minute and 1 second to release. This is the result:
So weit wie möglich = As far as possible.

Love the concept. Love the tune. Love it's movement and evolution through the song's length.

Love the shuffle feel.

Strangely enough, the piece I'm working on for next week (using the Mac German voice Steffi) is titled "So snell wie möglich."

cool pacing and evolution going on in this beat. I like it even more after reading about the constraints you put on yourself. It's a pretty complex piece for the time restrictions you had. nice work!

Something about this one - so much depth.
