composition period 6 – evaluation

Listen to the branch phrases (root+branch1+branch2+branch3+branch4+branch5) and assign them preference points in the scale of 1 to 10 (bigger numbers represent higher preference). You are not allowed to give points to your own phrase (leave it 0). Deadline for submission is on Tuesday 15.10 at 23:59 in your local timezone. In the end you can find the reaper project files, in which you can find material for the subsequent branch phrases.


After the climax and newly found calm, remnants of sound particles from before appear and disappear disrupting briefly the slowly moving materials. This phrase suggests that a slower-moving section could follow.

This phrase is a ‘reboot’, going back to some of the unselected root and branch phrases, but also trying to develop material in the process. So in a way it’s like beginning the piece again from a different starting point. The phrase combines Ricochet and Pop Population Deconstructed Textures from the root. It also uses several cuts from Stack overflow in the last branch. There is some material taken from a generated phrase too (5.4). The passage appears as somewhat of a break from the previous sections, and maybe a return to the more gestural beginning, but also suggesting energetic accumulations coming.
push it

I had an urgent need to play with strength and volumes at this moment, so that, plus panning operations and cutting the presented materials are the core of my operations. It is a resultant of “climax” previous branch, extension of climax itself, and a suggestion to continue radical changes in the development of composition, so it can be pushed to the maximum. I have used material suggestions from 5.2 generated and played freely with its disposition.
click re-appropriation

Although the climax seems somewhat short, I expanded a bit longer the sustained noisy sound and introduced other elements.
after climax

In this phrase I discarded almost all of the types of the granular textures we have been using, and introduced material with longer phrases and reverb to sort of create layers of the depth and also space in the piece. This phrase has the same function in the piece as the phrase “Soundscape” had previously.
