Tidal sketch number 2 Originally posted on 28/09/2021 Another rather basic loop using a synth that I wrote myself. I quickly gave up the idea of typing all the code as I record after that, as it became close to impossible as the complexity of the patterns involved increased. #TidalCycles#th4TidalSketches
Tidal sketch number 5 Originally posted on 01/10/2019 A catchy tune made up of several layered arpeggiations, which would later become the track Horizon on my latest EP "Wilderness" #TidalCycles#th4TidalSketches
yes, the audio is generated by a SuperDirt, a sampler written in SuperCollider. It is the default "backend" for TidalCycles, but I know there are people who are using other software (but I don't know much about them). In the end, it's just a matter of sending OSC messages to something that is able to understand them and turn them into sound. It's indeed not a terminal, it's just a simple GUI Emacs, themed, and cropped in the video.
@js0000 thanks for your suggestion, I understand what you mean, but I think that in this case, it was necessary to the "blast beat" aesthetic that I was going for (which is actually not contradictory at all with what you're saying, given that black metal is a voluntarily harsh and aggressive style)
