Pulse Sketch 3

Author Comments

Exploring minimalist composition. Two channels, two voices, two simple wave forms. I've allowed some delay and verb. This one goes from a Reichy gradual development into a more melodic tune....kind of like Squarepusher's Journey from Reedham.

Created using Ableton, Massive and pulse waves at 50% width.


I don't have critiques for this one. I think the soft attack on the synths is perfect for the composition. I like how there's some audible process involved, but you break out of the minimalist mold. Quite frankly, as cool as minimal composition can be, I really like when people use those techniques in a less rigid structure and incorporate more traditional methods. This is nice. I wouldn't mind hearing this played by two (real) violinists!

Nice work gruber99!

Hey thanks!
I agree re: breaking out of the minimalist mold. Writing something as a rigid "gradual process" could be considered lazy, compositionally speaking. Then again, sometimes it may suit the piece perfectly.

1:02 Very interesting. I'm always into experimentation. Sounds very good for only two instruments. Colors of Conversity seems to be a fitting title for this gem.
