Nigel Trans Lucid:
Today I had two objectives: to continue my exploration of Fugue Machine, and to calm my lovely wife Lene who has had a hard day at work.
To accomplish the second goal (the most important), I have made a calming ambient piece, to help her breathe.
To accomplish the first goal I have used the same pattern as yesterday, but with different sounds.
In fact I think I will use this opportunity to explore not only this app, but also my relationship to texture, melody, and harmony. For the next few days I am going to use this same patch in Fugue Machine, this same sequence of notes; to generate my tracks.
Each day I will use different apps and different sounds, and possibly some differing techniques. Let’s see how it unfolds.
Today I slowed the sequence from 110 bpm to 80 bpm. I used Addictive Synth; one of the built in patches ‘Sidereal’, which I altered slightly. I also altered parameters as I recorded, beginning with only the noise section of the patch and slowly blending in and out the oscillators. Finally I loaded this into Auria and added a file I had already recorded from FM4.
Over the next few days I will repeat this experiment. Fingers crossed!
I have also reused the original video from yesterday, processing it in Generate and CinemaFXV to try and match todays mood, and compiling with Pinnacle Studio.
