composition period 8 – evaluation

Listen to the branch phrases (root+branch1+branch2+branch3+branch4+branch5+branch6+branch7) 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 29.10 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.

vortical intensities

This section builds a momentum of forces to create a sort of second climax. Perhaps this passage can be seen as a second articulation where forces impart expression upon content. The phrase is heavily based on material from Knock Knock Who’s There and Sustained Orange, from the previous round, along with some generated material.
return

With this phrase I would like to slowly move back to the former character of the piece. By using glissandi I would like to give it a little bit of more tension and push it towards another and final climax, which will eventually lead us to the end of the composition.
patchwork

This fragment comes out from the underworld to take a look at the “after-climax” narration. It circles there for a moment, then develops to the explosion, going towards the surface. I have reused two not used phrases from previous periods: “music box nostalgia” (composition period 4) and “recollection” (composition period 7), as well as used some material from generated 7.7. So, here come’s the patchwork.
flow

in this phrase I introduced a new sound “ratchet_and_a_stick_modified.was” while I maintained the flow of the previous phrase.
emergence

Emergence: Cycles of spectral brightness emerge in and out from the underworld.
