today's realtime drone improvisation for two Buchla Music Easels by Bruce Bayard & Todd Barton.....enjoy! Headphones or studio monitors recommended.
Headphones or monitors would be fun! This starts softly and gets pretty loud -- caveat. A short video of this patch here: https://youtu.be/Q-ZKzs-91Iw
This is a piece created in the MakeNoise Morphagene http://www.makenoisemusic.com/modules/morphagene with samples from my recently released solo shakuhachi album, Ro https://todd-barton-ro.bandcamp.com/album/ro. These samples can be downloaded at https://freesound.org/people/makenoisemusic/sounds/470651/ and used to create your own works. Enjoy!

samples from my Throne of Blood score manipulated with the Buchla Music Easel and Makenoise Morphagene.
MakeNoiseMusic.com has just released a Morphagene reel I made of samples from my original music for the Music & Poetry of the Kesh cassette I composed with author Ursula K. Le Guin from her book Always Coming Home (1985). The reel is reel is available at https://freesound.org/people/makenoisemusic/sounds/459772/ and the re-release of the album (vinyl, cd, download) is here: https://ursulakleguintoddbarton.bandcamp.com/album/music-and-poetry-of-the-kesh
In 2010 I composed a full length score for a stage production of Kurosawa's Throne of Blood directed by Ping Chong. I studied a handful of instruments from the traditional Japanese Gagaku orchestra: ryuteki, hichiriki, sho and shakuhachi in order to perform my own samples. In this exploration I made a sample reel for the MakeNoise Morphagene and sculpted that.
For years I have been exploring ways of composing for Buchla Music Easel and the Japanese Shakuhachi bamboo flute. None have satisfied me until this morning. This is a sketch and hopefully a catalyst for more composition.

it has a mind of its own . . .
This rather intense composition was created from a 30 second sample of John Cage's prepared piano piece, And the Earth Shall Bear Again, using the MakeNoise Morphagene module developed by Tom Erbe. A high contrast to my last post: https://soundcloud.com/user7621213/looking-for-robyn-ii Video version available here: https://youtu.be/UC4IKl0ZZNY
See the beautiful video by Bruce Bayard wedded to this music: https://youtu.be/Dlhogz08bNE This is another MakeNoise Morphagene variation on William Cornysh's (1465-1523)tune, Ah, Robyn. Very slow and subtle changes bring kaleidoscopic sonic/melodic shifts.
Looking For Robyn is a meditation by Todd Barton based on the song, Ah, Robyn by William Cornysh (1465-1523). The piece was recorded and performed by Laurie Monahan, Sherril Kannasto and Beverly Simmions in 1973. I'm using the MakeNoise Morphagene module to reinterpret this lovely song.
