La Monte Young's Composition 1960 #7 v1.0


#1

The only notes : B3 and F#4.
The only instruction : “To be held for a long Time.”

Here is my baseline idea for this piece

with_synth :dark_ambience do
  with_fx :ixi_techno, phase_offset: 0.5, phase: 50 do
    play :b3, amp: 2, attack: 25, release: 1000, pan: -0.75
    play :fs4, amp: 2, attack: 25, release: 1000, pan: 0.75
  end
end

If you feel inspired, post your own version in the comments. I am ready to see what you creative people do. I will post my changes as they come up
