Here is a thread of music sketches that I made with , originally to post on Instagram (hence the 1-minute long format) ⤵️

A very simple loop, gradually building up complexity, showcasing a homemade SuperCollider synth of mine.

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.

A soft melodic snippet, in a fashion I would use over and over again in the future.

A catchy tune made up of several layered arpeggiations, which would later become the track Horizon on my latest EP "Wilderness"

An aerial tune with voice pads and guitars because I'm an extremely original person

Rewatching this, I'm wondering why I'm not using `chunk` more, it's a cool function (probably because I had forgotten about it)

Stole the chords from the intro of "Half-Light" by Porcupine Tree

I guess this one is nice if you like military bugle calls?

Flipping a hyena laugh sample

@th4

nice!

(unsolicited suggestion: constant eighth notes get annoying, maybe put a space (rest) in that voice once in a while (either forming a recognizable meter or not))

🎛️

@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)
