Autumnal Electricity (excerpt)

Excerpt from a 40 minute improvisation for electric guitar and Pure Data patch.

The guitar, tuned to open G, is fed into a monophonic pitch tracking oscillator. This is then fed into three separate mono buffers, which record 16, 18 and 20 seconds of audio and randomly change direction. The buffers are then fed into two “shufflers” – one pitched an octave below, the other a fifth. The output from this patch is then mixed with the output from the guitar and fed into a guitar amp with distortion and reverb.

Piece composed for the fourth edition of Gwaith Sŵn‘s Sonic Darts radio show, first broadcast on 5 October 2015 on Resonance104.4fm. The theme for the show was DIY.
