    FORTE NUMBERS as Rhythms

    Eight hours later! Spent all day reviewing related Opusumodus functions/documentation and researching your concepts and references...a very satisfying time in furtherance of my ongoing Opusmodus education ;-) Thanks again Julio for the inspiration, and Janusz for ALREADY including/implementing so many useful tools related to these subjects :)

    FORTE NUMBERS as Rhythms

    Thank you very much for taking the time to share ;-) Please feel free to continue to do so as I am most interested in this subject of Timepoint/Rhythm, especially as you apply your research to Opusmodus coding applications/implementations :)

    Turing Piano (Julio Herrlein)

    Fantastic,very insightful....thanks for sharing! Visual patterns as compositional approach are one of my interests, as is the idea of organizing rhythm into 'scales' ;-) Please inform if an English translation of main dissertation becomes available (though the excellent illustrations and footnotes in English in current version provide plenty of food for thought as it is, especially as many of your references are on already on my bookshelf ;-))

Pitch-lists are designed for the triggering of Spectrasonics 'Stylus RMX', the mixes then taking three stereo pairs and applying separate fx processing for final bounce in Logic 9.1.8. As I said, pure indulgence of a personal compulsion...shared here simply as example of the variety of Opusmodus application as applied to beat creation. ...
  5. Wow, thank you...that means a lot coming from you :) Even at my extremely novice level with Opusmodus, the possibilities of what I can accomplish towards my own goals (experimental electronics) are seemingly endless :) The combination of the online documentation and the continuing insights/inspiration derived from this forum and it's generous and talented contributors....is making this first leg of my learning Opusmodus an extremely exciting and rewarding period of education...and as I am able generate and collect these audio materials into a personal library, no doubt Opusmodus will allow me to develop unique approaches to electronic musiking which is my primary driving force ;-)
  6. Not much, but happy to share. Somedays, I just set up a live audio host and some interesting instruments and samples, and then 'browse' the Opusmodus documentation. In these sessions, I am combining a playful way to add to my knowledge while generating audio materials via audition and MIDI Export for my library to be used as later combinatory/compound materials. As the title suggests, these are just live experimentations with 'vector-to-length', along with variations on a theme to the value of 'vector-smooth' (from min to max value over session period). ;; (setf vector (gen-white-noise 10000)) (setf v2l-1 (vector-to-length '1/128 -3 13 vector)) (setf v2l-s-1 (vector-to-length '1/128 -3 13 (vector-smooth 0.1 vector))) (setf chromatic-12 '(c2 cs2 d2 ds2 e2 f2 fs2 g2 gs2 a2 as2 b2)) (setf chromatic-16 '(c2 cs2 d2 ds2 e2 f2 fs2 g2 gs2 a2 as2 b2 c3 cs3 d3 ds3)) ;;----------------------------- (setf voice-1 (make-omn :length (length-weight v2l-s-1 :weight '(34 1)) :pitch (span v2l-s-1 chromatic-16) :velocity (messiaen-permutation '(ff f mf mp p)))) ;;----------------------------- ...and with pitch-figurate and additional permutation: (setf voice-1 (make-omn :length (length-weight v2l-s-1 :weight '(67 1)) :pitch (span v2l-s-1 (pitch-figurate 6 chromatic-12 :interval (messiaen-permutation '(1 -1 2 -2 3 -3 4 -4 5 -5)))) :velocity (messiaen-permutation (messiaen-permutation '(ff f mf mp p))))) The pitch list is for the sequential triggering 'sample slices' via New Sonic Arts 'Vice', each slice corresponding to a specific pitch (thus the pitch-figurate serves to add controllable variation of slice triggering). The exercise is focused on rhythm, but in the context of untraditional/non-percussion materials ;-) hth ...
  7. Eno/Byrne-esque 'Beat-Betas' as audition tape (i.e. 60 second continuous excerpts). Opusmodus generated MIDI...Mixed as "prototypes" in Logic 9.1.8,'auditioned' in iTunes 'live' to "Audio Hijack Pro".
  8. Audition format (excerpts) of various personal application studies for Opusmodus. .. .
  9. Thank you for the info and replies ;-)
  10. Janusz, where is this above function 'length-tempo-map'? It doesn't appear to be part of system and system/forum searches only come up with this one reference? Thanks in advance.

    Opusmodus 1.2.23428

    Cool! Thanks Janusz ;-) Really enjoying 'vector-to-envelope'. Vey much appreciate the examples, very helpful to visualize function differences and possibilities 'at-a-glance' ;-)

    Opusmodus 1.2.23428

    Concerning: snippet - Audition default parameters. I assume the possible tempo values will be limited to the 'preset' choices as presented in actual 'audition' preference window? Or is it now possible through coding option to have any/all continuous possibilities for the audition tempo value? Free choice of tempo would be very helpful for me, as I mainly work in 'Prime Number' bpm values ;-) Thanks in advance

    Opusmodus Vs. Symbolic Composer

    oneder, I wrote Peter Stone around that time, and he stated that he was very busy on a project(s) and would update at some time in future but DID take the time to assist me. He has been at this a long time (my original copy of SCOM I have been upgrading from was purchased for an Atari in the early 90's!), and he has always replied to my emails over that long period...but I imagine SCOM is not necessarily 'in demand' such to be a priority from a marketing standpoint i.e the website. If you need support, write him directly... he has always presented himself to me as a professional and a gentleman, and has maintained SCOM for decades now... just appears to have other areas of his life he is fully committed to right now ;-)

    Thanks Janusz ;-)
