Walking Into the Black (Decomposition No. 1)

By Podling on April 21, 2018 1:53 pm

Previously on survivor! Nah well previously on Podling Weeklybeats, I experimented with blindfolded piano. This time I took it a step further; blindfolded with no audio. The main 7 min approx. segment of this piece is my first attempt at the experiment. (The identical intro/outro is from my second attempt).

My first attempt I had no idea what it would turn out like so I feel it had a better outcome. My second attempt, once listening back, I found it was forced and could hear myself pushing to try and make it more impressive melodically, structurally and technically than my previous attempt (except for the intro/outro which I really like).

I wrote a thesis a while back while recording my album 'Space and Light'. It includes other similar experiments using 'chance'. Read while you listen if you wish: http://spaceandlight.mooncubedesign.com.au/

So yeah, enjoy. Peace and Podlings.

Surprisingly coherent and well-organized for no audio feedback. Much liked.

So, was the blindfold on you or the piano? ::)

Beautiful job. This is extremely well done with your task at hand.

I like introducing elements of randomness and chance in sometimes, also.  I have to say I wouldn't have guessed there was any chance elements to this just by listening.  It sounds purposeful and pretty.

Real pretty, very well done.

I'll read that paper, see if I can draw some wisdom from it.
