Vink Couth Hi

By Devieus on June 21, 2020 12:02 pm

The merge is mostly complete now, it's meditative music with structure, but I want it to do chiptune if I want some.
In the process I set the bird free and gave the flute some actual melody.
In addition, here's a video of me composing this song:

Very nice, I definitely notice that the flute melody seems a lot more involved with melodic phrasing. Looking forward to hearing some of the chiptune!

Nice! I like the added structure.

Loved this. Will have to go back and listen to all the weeks I missed, now!

June 22, 2020 2:17 am

Wow, this is a huge change.  The flute part is sounding really cool now and the bird is going fucking nuts.  Cant wait to hear the chiptune version.

Yea, it's the same melody generator as way back, just repurposed.

Yes, this sounds lovely. the birdy is chilping like crazy. Very good move.

The flute has really become the star of the show and I love what's going on with the bird.  He's enjoying his freedom.

This one really felt alive to me, like fully awake vibrant Sunday morning, right after a strong cup of coffee

It deserved its freedom. RIP seagull.

I have plans for that. The lead generator will be used as just that, and the bird will ultimately end up for things like stings.

It's about time. The lockdown is alleviating in places and so it's only fair the song does too.

This has come a long way from the first edition. Really cool result from the previous weeks of work. You were so quick to generate the track too. Wow. That video was extremely informative for my creative process, all 4.637 seconds of it.

June 26, 2020 1:52 am

Very cool. Very meditative with a slight glitch feel to it. I really like that mixture.

It's actually 3 seconds exactly, but the true creative process takes way longer than that of course.

Thanks! Enjoy it for as long as you need.

Nice! Haven't checked in for a while and this project seems to have changed so much! The melodic elements are working great. Love the clip too haha

June 28, 2020 11:56 pm

Nice video, that explains everything smile  The birds sound much more cheerful this week and less alien.  And the waves crashing on the beach are a relaxing accompaniment to the flutes.

Not really all that much, but that's the thing about proc-gen, change one tiny thing and the whole outcome is completely different.

Thanks, I made it just for you. Yea, moving things around makes everything feel fresh again.

The flute and noise waves def give it a nice meditative feel.  Very relaxing piece.

It's been my bread and butter for the last quarter, just about. Though the flute came later.

I love the generative nature of this. It has a very "naturally musical" kind of vibe, which is nice (though not my generative cup of tea as our previous discussion may suggest!)

Nonetheless, I'm finding going through these few tracks of yours pretty inspiring, and looking at the Python code. Very cool.

Yea, I figure it might not be entirely your thing, but "naturally musical" is absolutely what I'm aiming for, just something unassumingly pleasant that feels like someone put effort into composing it, even though in reality no one did.
