"Senogrid" - demo of sonogrid triggering Senode
More of a demonstration or proof of concept than a real piece of music.
Senode is a personal favorite. It allows you to create musical graphs with branching and probabilities to allow you to have aleatoric processes but in a controlled manner. It can be as deterministic or random as you want it to be. However, it was hard to change things on the fly. It was more of a “set it and forget it” experience. Now, with the recent 1.0.3 update, it allows external control of the emitters and synth.
sonogrid is a very cool app for quickly exploring complex polyrhythms and polymeters. However, it doesn’t have a great provision for controlling pitch. It’s more of a straight rhythmic tool than a musical phrase generator.
I realized that sonogrid would be a wonderful way to control the stepping of the emitters in Senode; allowing you a quick and flexible way to traverse the graphs in a shifting and rhythmically interesting way. Giving you the flexibility of Senode’s musical networks with the easily adjustable rhythm programing of sonogrid.
The emitters in Senode are ultimately triggering iSEM, two instances of Zeeon and two instances of Mersenne, hosted in AUM with Eos 2 reverb and RE-1 Virtual Tape Machine.
