Canon in D … IN SPACE!

Canon in D Interstellar Mix


This version of canon in D is so over-the-top, it has gone into orbit! Hah! Bit glitch reggae trap beat.
You can tune out the instrumentals and just focus on the trap beat. It’s a completely separate entity moving along with the melody like a rowboat following in the wake of a tanker.
Or not. I’m not your keeper.

How do you get two harpists to play in time? … Shoot one of ’em.

Canon in D for Two Harps


Harpists, by nature, are solitary people who love horses. Getting harpists to play fast together and contour a melodic line is neigh-on impossible. So we have to give all the notes to one person so it doesn’t sound like harp hell. But now you need to rest, because plucking like that is insane, so the other person gets the next tough part. You also need to make sure that each part makes sense so you can practice it and not feel like you’re throwing your soul down a well.

I believe this is the best arrangement of this piece for 2 harps; A thing which should never have been tried. The arrangement itself is in the Public Domain, and sheet music is available.

Robots can groove too!

On Hold for You


The tenor sax performance in this piece was done by an AI musician.
The notes and chords were generated algorithmically (not by an AI).
https://sites.research.google/tonetransfer

0:33 there is an amazingly smooth and correct sounding run-up.
0:50 it goes below the actual tenor sax range. I love how it extrapolated down there!
0:58 there’s some leak hiss going on at 0:58. I’ll call that “artistic license”.
1:08 it goes quite a bit above the standard range for a tenor sax, but those notes should be available in altissimo with some fancy fingerings.
2:20 you can almost taste the spit!
2:58 it plays the same note back to back, but changes the tone of the note. Very cool.

This ToneTransfer AI Sax is amazing. Getting this level of detail in a recording with standard virtual instruments is almost impossible. AI for the win!
