Comments: This started off as a recording after Plaid’s ZN Zero (Greedy Baby, 2006), which is apparent from the sound of the bass, heavy use of reverb, and the 5/4 time signature. Then I decided to see if adding swing would work (it did) and from there the project kind of took its own direction. Most interaction consisted of changing density, voice transposition, part activation, and note regeneration. Bar transposition values remain the same throughout, and no pattern restarting is used. There are often three simultaneous melodic voices active, and generally there aren’t many errors or wrong notes.

Comments: The complete version of the above. There are some ‘wrong’ notes around 0:37, which were quickly corrected. The evolution from 5:00 to the end is quite nice.
