this was partially improvised in supercollider. my goal is to start re-incorporating rhythmic elements into my work, while avoiding certain tropes of electronic dance music. ideally, i'd like to continue playing with things like tempo changes and metric subdivisions as i had been before. this piece also uses massive irrational pitch/rhythmic sets, although the main rhythm remains more or less stable. the two samples that i use are a brief recording of contact mic'ed guitar strings and a single distorted kick sample i generated previously. neither of these sources are very apparent, as the samples are very harshly manipulated. the piece's meter, determined by the interaction between the source sample and the function that scrubs through it, is in some larger even multiple of 5, possibly 40.
