about

For the Overtone challenge, I reworked a excerpt of my recent album {6c4e311a​-​bfb2​-​4da4​-​89d7​-​2ce49e566eaa}, which was a drone experiment running a little over 2 hours. While the original contained 4 voices, one of those used a harmonic oscillator. For this version, I removed the remaining 3 voices, and duplicated the oscillator and tuning it down to make a bass. The variations in this piece are created using six 4-pole LFOs, each of which are modulating each other in different ways, being fed into two linear-to-polar coordinate converters which then control how much of each harmonic is present, as well as a complex algorithm for creating stereo separation which I further enhanced in mastering. The non-octave harmonics are introduced by a random event generator which ticks once per minute.

The original patch that I used for the album will technically run for several days without repeating itself, though since it’s a drone this would be difficult to be fully aware of as a listener. I think this one can run for about 25% of that time before repeating. It’s a simpler version, but does function as a more interesting exploration into overtones, where in the original I was really focused on exploring frequency modulation.

I hadn’t been expecting to contribute to it actually, but I watched a video on a Buchla 200e [the Verbos 262v] that centered around a harmonic oscillator where the artist was trying to imagine an AI learning about music and it got me thinking...
