Hi there :
I’m trying to apply some minimalist techniques to audio
First one is called "Phasing",and consists on puting 2 identical
loops progressively out phase;they will realign after some time.
Here some practical example :
Steve Reich - Clapping Music (Scrolling)
The code i was trying is this:
# Loop Phasing use_sample_defaults beat_stretch: 2, num_slices: 8, release: 0.5,amp: 0.7 sl = (line 0,8,inclusive: true).tick live_loop :perc do use_bpm 90 sample :loop_breakbeat sleep 1 sample :loop_breakbeat,slice: sl sleep 1 end
Second,is extract midi information from an audio file;
as “Pure Data” does,and use some midi notes as source material.
Then i can apply some of these techniques:
Minimalism Music Techniques
I tryed something like this:
live_loop :perc do |f| sample :loop_breakbeat,note: hz_to_midi(f) sleep 1 end
If someone around know how can these can be achieved…
Think it will interest to musicians particularly.
Once again,thank you for your attention.
