A Lifetime (preview)

For the full version, check this soundcloud!

Equipment: Eurorack, OP-1, Pedalboard
Before composing: We performed at an experimental music show in Oakland, and we wanted our piece to fit the mood while still having progression and evolving concepts. This song was actually rehearsed earlier that day and sounded *completely different*, since my note quantizer ended up fucking up entirely during the show and I had to improvise.
After performing: I didn't like how dissonant the melody was with the rest of the composition originally, but on second listen it seems to work. Odd.

Pretty experimental stuff you're releasing lately. The soundcloud link seems to freeze from time to time, so I could not listen to the SoundCloud version yet. I like the ¿OP-1? atmosphere, though the ¿modular? stacatto notes seem to work sometimes and be highly dissonant the next moment. Seems to work in the end, indeed smile

Thanks! The rehearsed version was much more coherent than this, so it's a mixed bag for sure.

Yes, I was actually pretty distraught after the performance, because rehearsal had such a coherent sound to it, then to have everything fall apart in real life was fairly upsetting.
