Filename: funkp_deviate_s_Feb09
Duration: 1:31
Recorded: 9 Februrary 2009
Instruments: 4 synths
Comments: As below with the percussion environment, I’ve recently built a Lemur interface to control melody generation. Overall it’s been a success although depth of control has been compromised – the Lemur surface isn’t big enough (and touch isn’t precise enough) to accommodate all the controls that exist in the Max performance patch. Pictures (or video) will be uploaded in the future. There is also an issue with some of the Lemur control buttons. For some reason certain buttons won’t ‘bang’ some processes in Max – I suspect it might be a bug. This excerpt was recorded using Lemur control only.
*UPDATE* Not technically a bug – the problem was message priority and a wayward uzi object. Fixed using deferlow

    red_deviate_ds_Dec08 – good solid tonal bed; stereo interaction is really effective.

    funkp_deviate_s_Feb09 – effective again and clear structure and build. The more chromatic material evident here too – although a couple of times it sounds a bit random (which it is of course!). Be great to hear the transition from something without the chromaticism to just enough to too much. All very subjective of course, but I’m thinking of how the examples might be discussed in relation to the thesis.
