Procrastinating Suttee January 2000, 5'40" (Download
This piece was composed using ordinary hardware (samplers
and synths) and a MIDI sequencer. Thanks to Peter McIlwain and Alistair Riddell
for their comments on various aspects of the piece... however none of the
blame for the track resides with them! The samples used were recorded on a
trip to the Adelaide Hills and the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia,
oh, and one was made on a train trip into Melbourne.

Major 6-7-6-6-8 June 2000, 1'29" (Download

Drum Major is a messy pattern hacked together using Boolean
Networks in a multi-track Boolean MIDI sequencer I have written called ILLogicaL.
The track is not on-line because it is good, it is here to demonstrate the
software. The numbers in the title refer to the number of nodes in the five
sequencer loops used to construct the piece. The inter-node delays which determine
the amount of time which elapses between notes in a loop were set at various
multiples of 10 between 10 and 100 milli-seconds. The tool is described in
a paper which was presented at the
Australasian Computer Music Conference 2000.

6-7-6-6-8", Alan Dorin
Yes, this one's named after Eno's well-known work of a similar
title. This piece was also constructed with the Boolean network sequencer,
ILLogicaL. It consists of 3 loops of
6,7 & 8 nodes respectively. The inter-node delays were set at 1000, 750
and 1000 milli-seconds which obviously makes this piece move more slowly than
the Drum Major.
