Jabun – Generation Supernova

 

01 Supernova

02 Deep Space

03 Turing Machine

04 Voyagers

 

Following my improvised, semi-live, ambient and experimental 2nd album as Jabun – 15-4-20 (released December 2020), on the anniversary of its recording, I release my next experimental studio album as Jabun – Generation Supernova.

 

Generation Supernova is a 37+ minute collection of 4 tracks exploring generative music methods in the studio. Each track utilises a carefully designed system set up to generate a never-repeating and ever evolving soundscape which was conducted and guided to build an emotional and developing journey from the first note to the last.


Deep Space was generated using 2 random arpeggiators each given a set of notes to choose from and told to play a note at a consistent regular interval, the first once per quarter note (at 100 BPM) and the second, once per second (60 BPM), along with a randomly triggered note-repeater leading to more interesting polyrhythms. Beneath this is a short free-time performance which was then duplicated, reversed and played back at 2 (sub)-harmonic pitches/speeds. The piece develops with an improvised synth melody (later returning in reverse) as well as a programmed drum machine performance.


Unlike the warmth of Supernova, Deep Space feels cold and isolated to me, the persistent ticking of time, that feeling of drifting perhaps aimlessly reflected in the improvised synth and its subsequent return. Nevertheless, the regular beat of the drums keep marching on.

Very interesting song! I was wondering, did you check "Allow external API use (Geometry Dash)" when uploading this song? I'd like to use it for a GD level

Jabun responds:

Happy you liked it and thanks for listening :D I'm actually not sure with regards the external API stuff as I'm having a problem with Newgrounds on this old computer not showing whether I've ticked boxes or not, so I can't see whether I've ticked the box and I'm not sure how to check... Sorry about that. Thanks for your interest though!
