electronic music sketches

A small set of pieces/experiments put together over the last couple years. These were mostly trial-runs of a few custom Max for Live devices I’ve been developing.

The track ‘Thick Drone Squelcher’ relied heavily on a few of my first Max for Live devices which were used for easily automating groups of MIDI Control Changes. This track drove home for me that what we recognize as a particular instrument is as much about how it is played as it is about “natural” sound. In this case, the “squelching” synth is to a software plugin called Diva as a fiddle is to a violin.

Dunes was performed entirely in a MaxMSP patch and makes extensive use of the patch to make the varied, dynamic envelopes on each line in the piece.
