Cinematic Fugue Machine Jam
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

PerplexOn took the iPad outside on a rainy day for jamming with a minimalist piano sequence, combined with the sound of rain and a touch of gritty synth. Controlled with a Korg nanoKONTROL.

Apps in use:

Fugue Machine | multi-playhead sequencer – Alexandernaut

iGrand Piano – IK Multimedia

iSEM Synthesizer – Arturia

Eos 2 – Audio Damage, Inc.

AUM – Audio Mixer – Kymatica (Jonatan Liljedahl)

BeatMaker 3 – INTUA

While iGrand Piano was used on location, the piano track was replaced with the beautiful and more nuanced Una Corda Piano by Native Instruments afterwards. This was done by recording the actual midi output of Fugue Machine live with Beatmaker 2 in the background and then exporting this midi track to the DAW.

This track is a free download:

Fugue Machine Baroque and Serialism For iPad

Fugue Machine Baroque and Serialism For iPad

FUGUE MACHINE is like “Bach In A Box”. It is a musical tool inspired by composition techniques used in Baroque music and Serialism — e.g. Bach’s canons and fugues, and Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique. The idea was to design a tool to manipulate a melody’s speed, direction, and pitch, as well as play multiple variations of the melody simultaneously.

As it turned out, the best implementation for this was to reimagine one of the most fundamental building blocks of all music sequencers: the piano roll.

Fugue Machine

THE PIANO ROLL, REIMAGINED.

FUGUE MACHINE is the world’s first multi-playhead piano roll. Create a musical sequence and play it back with up to four playheads at once — each at various speeds, directions, and pitches. You see the playheads dance over the music sequence, and hear the complex patterns that emerge.

It’s mesmerizing.
