This stops sounding strange after about ten minutes...

Fascination replaced the feeling of strangeness a lot sooner than that. No surprise there. I had no trouble cottoning on to what Harry Partch was about when you introduced me to his use of the 43-tone scale.

The way the Melodion started with a simple, conventionally melodious phrase, then lead into unfamiliar, sometimes seemingly jarring territory, reminded me of how J.S.Bach did much the same in his well-tempered clavier, the art of the fugue and a memorable cembalo solo in one of his Brandenburg concertos. The only difference is that Bach did not employ microtonal intervals. I bet that if Bach had had instruments at his disposal that were capable of producing them he would have utilised them with glee.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Uuh ahhhhh. Trance on acid. it's a keeper.

I suppose you have listened to Dolores Catherino's explanation of the Lumatone and how she uses it? If not, go here.

Yeah. I find the whole 'polychromatic' concept as she explains it quite fascinating.

Fascinating indeed, but not particularly substantive. Rhythm would add a lot. Even something as easy as arpeggios would to some extent.


Something from eight years ago.



MIDIs have not really changed a great deal in the past 30 years. This from 1990. Not actually weird, but I'll use any excuse, or none, to roll it up on stage once more. :lol:

Volume up and go

Correction on the publication date: Animusic released it with the title "Pipe Dream" in 2001. In 2002 ATI included it with its Radeon 9700 video card as a demonstration of its 3D capability.

You can find more creations of this sort on Animusic's Youtube channel. There is nothing strange about the music itself. What is remarkable is that whereas it appears that the animation drives the sound, the software works the other way around. The MIDI input determines the visual movement. More info here.

And now for a strange real-life instrument, Wintergatan's marble machine, backed up by some bass strings and MIDI. "Folktronica" :hehe: That's a new one to me.
