100 tones

Another track for my RPM '08 "album" on my profile there.

This is 100 sinusoidal oscillators with slowly, linearly changing frequencies, all spread across the stereo image. Kinda fun, I think.

RPM '08 Challenge - first track done

For some reason, I thought I'd do the RPM '08 Challenge, to try to force myself to do more audio experimenting. So far, I've managed one track: it's on my profile. It's generated with Csound and Perl scripts. I finally got around to writing a perl script that could look in a directory for samples, and create a csound orchestra file with one instrument for each sample. This makes it much less tedious to add samples to a piece.

In this track, I was going for a kind of Steve Reich/Esplendor Geometrico gradually changing tempre/rhythm kind of thing. I think it came out okay, but since it's all the product of code, it is permanently tweakable. Let me know what you think if you get a chance.
