Finally, part D made it to completion, if only at DMU level. That means that only part B is not in its final shape yet…Read more "Erlanger Programm: Part D gets completed."
The second one of the big parts gets completed, at least as a digital mockup: the synth-symphonic beauty of part A in a prototype render.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Part A is completed (at least on the DMU stage)"
Erlanger Programm doesn’t use a lot of what is colloquially known as a “loop” – a short, 1-to-2 bar music segment that gets repeated. It does, however, use loops in the sense that each main part and the album as a whole can be looped. This has effects on the music. And on production.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Loops. Macro. And Micro."
In recent days, I was able to accomplish something. Time to site back and take account of what has been done – and what still needs to be done. Includes first talk on release date estimate plausibility.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Progress (and Status Quo)"
This week saw progress on part C (the one with the noise counterpoint), and with that, first available (for you) sketches of part a’ and part C.Read more "Erlanger Programm: First sketches – and noise counterpoint once again"
I had already talked about scales, about “octaphonic”, and about forbidden notes. Time to shed some light on that nerdy topic. Later on, part C gets a different kind of tech approach.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Talking Tonality"
Will there be more for titles than just lower and upper case letters? At least the project’s working title offers some suggestions. In other news, I might go into octuple time. And finally – where does that working title come from?Read more "Erlanger Programm: Titles and Octuple Time"
Erlanger Programm is a somehwat bigger project. This is also true for the DAW project file. But where does “big” start today? And, much more importantly: how can I deal with it?Read more "Erlanger Programm: Size matters"
Themes get written fro some parts that are still lacking one – and immediately put into a new context where the early sketches call for it.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Sustainable Themes"
The loop gets closed – a part a’ links from the musical territory of part D to the already established part a, using musical material from both. With that, at least sections of every part are sketched out.Read more "Erlanger Programm: Closing the Loop"
