Weeklybeats is a 52 week long music project in which artists compose and publicly release 1 song a week for the entire year.
Starting December 29th 2019 GMT each participant will have one week to upload one finished composition. Any style of music or selection of instruments are welcomed and encouraged. Sign up or Login to get started or check our FAQ for any help or questions you may have.

Fishshe Boug

Remember when you said "I'll never use math in my life". You were probably right, because it's people like me that do. Today's song was brought to you by Math. Consult your local mathematician to see if Math is right for you.

I added math to the wave form generators so now they don't make noise, they make sine waves, square waves, sawtooth waves as well as noise. Something's wrong somewhere in the code and the waveform isn't always complete, but that just means the waveform is more interesting. I probably want to fix it before doing the more crazy math though.

This track reminds me of some song from pokémon red/blue, could definitively see this track in a rather industrial 8 bit environment, maybe a sewing factory.

Those are some neat timbres for the percussion parts!

March 23, 2020 1:18 am

Fish! A word!

March 23, 2020 2:19 am

Damn dude, thats wild.  What do you use to do this?  Is there some kind of plugin that lets you enter your own functions to shape waves and play them as an instrument?

V cool man, great work

Song generation is proceeding along nicely my friend. Definitely sounds like more variation is being introduced and its sounding more cohesively strung together.

Yea, I can see that. I guess it's the drums, they're really pulling the whole thing here.

Thanks, it chose well this week.

Not quite, but it's definitely sort of in there.

Not directly, but there're 5 or so plug-ins that'll let me draw one or more (up to 9 in one of them) by hand. Since I'm procedurally generating the song, I needed a way to draw these waveforms and that's where I can input the functions (albeit in a computer science-y kind of way).

Thanks man, really appreciate it.

Thanks, I think it's mostly the drums that hold it together here, but there's some good bits and pieces around.

Nice dude! Eventually it will be so good that it will become Skynet.

March 25, 2020 2:26 pm

I always tell my kids, math is everywhere, you always need math! 

March 26, 2020 2:37 am

There's something Fishshe about this track smile

I feel like every time I listen to your tracks I'm at a museum, observing some piece of music history. "This is what the martians used to listen to when they first colonized the planet and didn't have VSTs or real world instruments. It is said some of them even danced when they weren't gasping for oxygen."

Like another poster said, this reminds me of first gen Pokemon music in a way. Pretty neat haha.

Nah, I'm not using artificial intelligence, only human intelligence.

They don't need math, I need math. I need it more than they do, tell them to keep their hands off my math.

I bet it's the Boug.

Some were dancing because they were gasping for oxygen.

I'm deliberately not using VSTs though, the source is available to everyone and I like to keep external dependencies to a minimum. In this case it's just python 3 and LMMS to make it as accessible to as many people as possible.

The "STUN" setting will also work, but only if you want to wow your audience.

I'm starting to think it's not just the drums.

March 28, 2020 5:35 pm

Like the tones!  The results are in and Math good for you. Is not right for me.

March 28, 2020 6:28 pm

nice, hammering drive in this... somehow uplifting too smile

March 29, 2020 3:02 am

I consulted with my mathematician, and I still don't get it.

Love the track though. The gameboy vibes feel bright in this one. smile

One math a day keeps the mathematician away. I guess that's another thing that's just not your thing next to the "its/it's" thing.

It helps I never go away from the major key.

You can always get a second opinion.

Interesting you call it gameboy vibes when I haven't gotten to using that one yet.

March 29, 2020 2:43 pm

Great tones! I also get that first gen Pokemon vibe which is nothing but great for me smile

March 29, 2020 8:10 pm

this all adds up to a really nice piece!

Well, it was a pretty great game at the time, so that makes sense.

Callback baby! Thought you can get away with that, eh. At least you're doing it right.
