Hyades


2015/04/04
[MP3] [FLAC]

Xaire Hyades daughters of Atlas, bringers of rain and tutors of Dionysos.

Chord progression in 36-EDO generated by context-sensitive substitution rules, using many septimal thirds and few repeated notes, so that the harmony is consistent but unfamiliar and constantly shifting. Recorded in three tracks (and a whole lot of takes...) with constant structured improvisation on the Eurorack analog synthesizer settings (and even a little bit of on-the-fly repatching); then mixed down digitally and some reverb added in Csound.

This is meant to suggest a story told by non-human intelligance, to and for the edification of non-human intelligence. The Gods are not like us despite their appearance.
