The Green Book

Guitar improvisation through my Max/MSP patch. There are four channels of pitch shifting, delay, two delay modulators per delay, bit crushing, high-pass and low-pass filters, ring modulation, and panning.  Parameters of each are randomizable within ranges, and the time for each parameter to get to the next random value is also randomized.  I did a show on Thursday night with guitar through this patch and it went well...but I double-tapped the stop-record toggle, which then set the write pointer to the 54-byte mark.  It looked like I'd zeroed out the set, so I recorded some improvs through the patch at home.


I moved the 54-byte file into the trash without emptying it...and when I looked later, I saw that without the size hint from the FAT, the file appeared to be full-length (234MB).  So I imported it as raw data into Audacity--it took a number of tries with different settings (some of which had one channel intact but not the other, or were the wrong length).  Eventually I hit on the predictable 16-bit signed bit depth, 44.1KHz, big-endian byte order, and I had it all back.  (I'll probably put this up this week.)


Title from one of the Victorian-era uses of arsenic, element 33--for a particular shade of green.

Well, your description kinda lost me, but who doesn't love arsenic?

Similarly lost here, but this was a textural delight. The warping of the pitches gives an eerie vibe, reminiscent of the green glow of arsenic poisoning.

Apparently the Victorians were quite fond of it!

Thank you!  Not that I know what arsenic poisoning is like, but still...
