April 04 2020 Audiobus Fugue Wavemapper generative session Part VI (and personally Day 363) of an exploratory series as I attempt to learn how to use screen recording software. This one used some fairly steady note patterns with Fugue and the very unique Wavemapper to randomize elements of timbre, etc.

Fugue allows for up to 4 “heads” to travel in either direction, with different transpositions and different rates of travel and depending upon your speeds, you can very easily use this to generate some note patterns (to MIDI) for later use. While the note patterns are not random at all, the relationship between them can get quite complex.

I find it tough to alter the speed finely and I do wish the different heads could also be in different time sigs but it is still a very nice app to use.

I enjoyed the later part of this piece – as is typical, I record as much as possible, even while I tweak the knobs to my liking. I consider this part of being “experimental” – sometimes I have no idea what is going to happen!
