improv 6 — eyes closed

By Coauctor on February 11, 2018 8:25 pm

Improvising for Weekly Beats. My self-imposed limitations:


• Digital piano as an input device (Yamaha P35)
• Moderately limited warm-up before the recording
• No edits after the recording is made
• Four VSTs for the year, one for each season


Winter VST: Mikro Prism by Native Instruments
Please share your suggestions on a VST I should use in spring

Doing this to explore improvisation as a practice of being here and now.
I have no mental image for this one because I recorded it with my eyes closed.

Another great one, it reminds me this words from Sunken Gardens by Sterling: "The cosmos has no meaning,
and its emptiness is absolute. That's pure terror, but it's also pure freedom."

Oh, thank you. I like Sterling's philosophy and I got some ideas from him. Fantastic words.

Not bad, in fact it's pretty good.

For nominations on spring VST, Magical 8-bit if you want to go into chiptune, or DSK Virtuoso for a set of more classical instruments.

Oh hey, looks like you got to the same fairyland as me when I was doing my previous improv!

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm interested in chiptune-esque sound, actually.
If it is possible to make chiptune sound "dirty" in Magical 8-bit, then I'll definitely try it.

I don't think so, but that could be what the rest of your DAW could do.
