MOVE 50 : 24 Australian Composers celebrate 50 year of Move Records.

Library shelf no. CD 3031 [Not for loan]

Work Overview

The piece was made on Arturia CMI V emulation of the old Fairlight CMI, using samples made in the early 1980s on the original Fairlight CMI. These samples are either hybrids - with the attack of one instrument fading into the decay of another, or samples made on a gamelan at the time. The CMI V is tuned in 50 tones per octave equal temperament. The samples are controlled by a program made in Music Wonk that has 10 instruments, each playing random pitches, durations and loudnesses over a one octave range. Which of the 10 instruments is playing at any one time is controlled by an array of gate-switches. This Postlude is made with Music Wonk patch, improvising note-choice and tempo controls.
