Tango #24

I had a bug in the original code for Tango, which I fixed today. It was occasionally choosing a sample file out of range, and as a result leaving out the notes. Hundreds of them I think. The fix was simple, and here is a new version. The keys are either otonalities (maj) or utonalities (min), chosen by picking one from the list of 33 keys, and moving up and down the list using the Markov Chain Drunkard’s Walk.

  1. An-maj
  2. Bn-maj
  3. An-maj
  4. G+-maj
  5. F+-maj
  6. G+-maj
  7. An-maj
  8. Bn-maj
  9. C#-maj
  10. Bn-maj
  11. C#-maj
  12. Bn-maj
  13. C#-maj
  14. E–maj
  15. G–maj
  16. A#-maj
  17. D+-maj
  18. Fn-maj
  19. D+-maj
  20. Fn-maj
  21. Ab-maj
  22. Cn-maj
  23. E+-min
  24. Cn-maj
  25. E+-min
  26. E–min
  27. E+-min
  28. Cn-maj
  29. Ab-maj
  30. Fn-maj
  31. Ab-maj

Dances Playlist

This is a playlist of some new versions of the twelve dance pieces for Prent’s Microtonal Slide Bosendorfers that I’ve been working on through 2017 & the start of 2018. In honor of the RPM challenge, I’ve redone all of them in the month of February. Actually, I redid them all today, February 27th, but the spirit is there, if the mechanics are vague. The language doesn’t say you can’t spend a year composing the songs that you intend to perform during the month of February, so that’s what I’ve done the last two times: compose all year, then produce realizations using my software during the month of February. All are based on classical piano works retuned or transformed on some major level from their original. Those at the end of the list were done first, and they have the most major transformations. Many stroll through their pieces using the Drunkard’s Walk Markov Chain, going forward or backward through the measures.
