    More indeterminate minimalism structured according Terry Riley’s ‘In C.’  I spent the last few days revising some of the code so I could specify different tempos in the source notation.  A lot of automated editing and splicing in the Perl code so there was a lot to do.  This piece is in 120 BPM instead of the 128 I have been using.  Sounds a little less frenetic.

    Have had less success trying to figure out how to avoid the clicks and pops that occur on the splice boundaries.  One thing worked – I leave an eighth rest at the end of each four bar cell.  The silence doesn’t crash into the first beat of the next cell and so the pops and clicks go away.  But the resulting mix loses much of its continuity and flow.  Not a trivial problem…  For a 12 cell piece with six instruments, for example, there are about 650 splices.  There is a way to automate a fade in and fade out, but this has to be done on the cell boundaries with great precision and the round-off errors in the code make for a ragged beat on the final segment.  Ideas welcome…

      Paul interesting re the rest in the code and it’s rounding.  In real time it did create and interesting flux in the beat.  Nice work. I should get back to the Python music library but have been inspired more of late by real time playing/interaction.

    Jim Goodin – Sleeper

    Everyone welcome! Have not had a chance to get back to the thread with work today except did listen to Kavin and James’s later pieces.  I recorded this piece with violin and Echo Pad the ios app last Sunday evening.  It’s a combination looper and multi-efx processor that I found some new inspiration with.  This is a longish piece with several moods but kept thinking of the Bach’s title Sleepers Awake.

    Jim Goodin & Ray Istorico – Out (Red Sky)

    Well I have one more and anyone else still jump in.  I see that Steve just added a couple of more mashes I may have missed so excellent.  This is another cut from my fretless improv the other night.  I asked ongoing collab partner of many years on a range of e-drums and currently wave drum to contribute, Ray Istorico who has been a member of the community in the shadows with my encouragement which I’m trying to do more of late.  So this is the fretless and many wave drum textures.  Welcome Ray once again!

    Jim Goodin – wash

    I did this last night intending to post and didn’t – doing it now after processing and will close the event though the leave the thread open if anyone else as improvs/words whatever today.  Thanks for coming out as always and see everyone next weekend for our ongoing creativity.  Low violin and stretched.

    I am sorry for this out of the time window post, I was so very busy all weekend I could hardly do my Facebook at all., but I had some stuff from earlier this week… and AND I just did something new now.

    I will post it in the soundin group at facebook — I think that the stuff this week was all really inspiring and enjoyable all around.

    see everyone next time.. —

      Bill don’t worry about it.  If you want to post a piece on this thread it’s fine.  True we have a window normally of Saturday evening @6pm PST but I’ve never quite been locked to it.  Once upon a time we had an ‘after hours’ page that I think was or is on FB but just post on here or on Sound-In on FB as you may.  Believe me I’ve had some busy weekends, it seems as it gets colder I have more time for music in recent years.  This weekend was kind of in a groove, sometimes it’s like this and sometimes as you say really busy life.  Anyhow see you on FB or this coming Thur.
